I had what I thought was a routine visit to look at an unusual bump on my skin, and it turned out to be anything but routine. I found the care and explanations of the doctor and staff to be very helpful, and their sense of urgency and compassion to be "as good as it gets," in Yelp-talk. In fact, it was better than that. I found that they practiced the Platinum Rule ("Treat others as you wish that others could treat you") rather than the mere Golden Rule. While the staff were coordinating the next steps in my care, I searched the internet (on their free wifi) and found that the doctor was following the state-of-the-art treatment plan, and acting with old-fashioned interaction and communication from the doctor and staff. My kids have received successful acne treatment at Miller Family Dermatology, and I am delighted that I chose this team.

Super impressed with Dr. Millers practice. The staff was able to fit me in on short notice, and Dr. Miller was great! Had been seeing another dermatologist, but I feel like Dr. Miller gave my skin problems real attention and a personalized approach. I'm very happy to have found a new dermatologist!
Dr. Miller is kind and gentle so you will forget you are seeing a doctor. Instead you will feel at ease as though you’ve asked a friend to give their opinion on the appearance of your skin condition. Though I saw Dr. Miller for a hand burn he took the time to read through my chart & pro-actively follow up on a previous complaint I had to another doctor in the clinic about an itchy patch on my back.
