Patient Comments (9)
in Miami, FL |
Dr Mills is the best orthopedist in so many ways: warm, comforting, personable and highly skilled. He performed a triple arthrodesis on my right foot in March 2017 and I am already much better than before surgery and I'm only 20 weeks post-op. My complete recovery takes 52 weeks, but with Dr Mills' skill and knowledge, I am well on my way. No wonder his waiting room is packed with patients. Great surgeons like him are rare. If you want the best, Dr Mills is the one for you.
Deerfield Beach, FL |
Dr. Mills explained everything so clearly that even I could understand what is going on with my ankle. Very reassuring. I have hope now.
in Miramar, FL |
Dr. Mills took the time to show me examples of the problem areas of my foot and was very personable. His bedside manner was very warm and comforting. I am definitely going to stick with him.
in Pompano Beach FL |
I had hallux rigidus both feet. Dr Mills took the time to explain surgery before after and at follow up weeks later. Just a great experience. I aborted using another doctor days before surgery and I'm so glad I did.
in Oklahoma City, OK |
Would highly recommend him. Thanks to him I did NOT lose my right foot after a severe injury from a car accident. Great bedside manner, and high skilled professional.
Pompano Beach, FL |
Dr. Mills is a highly skilled and competent surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. He speaks the truth about your options and lets you make the decision.
Dr. Mills was humiliating, demeaning and short. I have never experienced a physician with the lack of patient concern as Dr. Mills. There are other foot and ankle specialists in south Florida. Research who they are and see someone else.
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Mills is very personable and takes the time to explain things. Dr. Mills came highly recommended to me by some other folks. I would highly recommend him.
Florida |
Horrible experience! I went in walking and came out crippled. He sold me on an operation that has crippled me. After coming back in with sever pain that he put me in, he said the operation didn't work the way he expected to. He then wanted to do another surgery. So let me understand... he completely made me crippled and then wanted to do another surgery? Regardless of any patient turnout, Dr mills has made his money and moves on. Get a lot of opinions.
