Dr. Miller had been my pulmonologist for quite some time. I retired and subsequently began using my Primary Care physician(s) more.. Probably not the wisest thing to do, but he was now an out of network Dr. for me, so since I was a stable asthmatic and trying to save money.. I relegated myself to primary care. I am now seeking his care again because I need the unmatched care and confidence that I received as someone getting asthma at 42. He gets the job done and teaches ou what you need to know about you and how to care for YOU, best! He makes and takes the time for you. I highly recommend him and would give 6 stars if I could!

Dr Miller was ok.. however his office staff not so much especially one staffer by the name of Colleen, never faxed over paperwork needed for the radiologist bluntly lied about doing it, scheduled appointment without my knowledge and became confrontational when I questioned her she was very unprofessional raising her voice As if she was speaking to children. Patients beware stay away not worth the aggravation!! Colleen needs some customer care training!

The staff is highly unorganized and unprofessional, they set up appointments with wrong doctors and even when your appointment is scheduled correctly you will still wait for close to 2 hours. If you enjoy waiting long hours and terrible service this is the doctors office for you.

Dr Miller over books and then is never at the office at the time of your appointment. I guess his time is more valuable then yours. I just left his office had my file copied because of his rudeness. Many more Drs out there

Dr. Miller is excellent and his staff is awesome and supportive. He always takes the time to explain my options, answer my questions, and never rushes me. I have been his patient for over 8 years and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I have never had a problem with regular or emergency appointments.
