What They’re Saying

Dr. Miller is phenomenal! I had both my hips replaced back in September 2020. I’m now back at work full time and just yesterday worked an 18 hour day (standing about 14 hours). Woke up today and felt refreshed. I recommend Dr. Miller and his staff to anyone and especially to people with Hip Perthese Disease, like I had. Thank you Dr. Miller! I’ll see you whenever the next 5k run takes place.

Just a fantastic experience going from not being able to walk or sleep without pain to having my life back! Four weeks after a full hip replacement I'm walking and exercising and starting to dance again. Love all the social media stuff used here. Received a video of my surgery and saw the care and precision of the team during the procedure. It really gave me confidence during rehab to see how extensively Dr. Miller tested the fit and range of motion. I just wish I had the video of the entire procedure... but I know that is not for everyone. 🙂 Thanks for giving me my life back... my 60's are looking brighter every day.

Dr Miller and his staff are the best! I had my hip replaced and I am doing so well 10 weeks out. I have already recommended him to others. If I need any other orthopedic surgery, I will return to Dr. Miller. Hands down the best

Found Dr. Miller three years ago when I broke my wrist in Costa Rica and needed an orthopedist for follow up appointments and my PT order. Came back to Dr. Miller when I needed my shoulder repaired. He's an amazing surgeon, great bedside manner and supportive of meeting the patient's request during the recovery process while ensuring your health care is not compromised. Highly recommend Dr. Miller if you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon.
