Our Care Philosophy:

When you become a Miller Family Dermatology patient, your advantages include:
  1. A Team Based approach where you always have access to a Board-Certified Dermatologist
  2. Timely and accessible care
  3. Patient-centered care
  4. Approachability and respect

High Tech with a Soft Touch

Dr. Miller is a gadget junkie and is very interested in technology that can make the office more efficient and improve the patient experience.  But, while we embrace all the latest technology and innovation, we are uncompromising about the patient-doctor relationship and are steadfast about maintaining this connection.   We ensure that your time with your physician is maximized by removing the computer from the exam room so that your doctor is able to focus all their time and attention on your skin condition and developing a treatment plan.

Patient-Centered Care

We’ve got all the skills and experience of a “big city” doctor without the travel, traffic, and parking headaches of a “big city” office.  We’re in the neighborhood and we strive to maintain the approachability of a neighborhood clinic.  This means providing timely and accessible care.

We also know how we want our family to be treated by doctors, and that’s why we extend the same personable, small-town approach to you.  Compassion, kindness, and integrity are the cornerstones of our practice. We listen intently, and take the time to understand your individual needs to create a plan tailored to your unique circumstances.

High-Value Care: What it Means for Miller Family Dermatology Patients

You have a lot of choices in the healthcare marketplace.  We believe the best choice is the one that gives you best possible return on your invested health care dollar. At Miller Family Dermatology, this means working to provide our patients with the best possible value in the services we provide by focusing on:

  1. Doing all that we can to efficiently and responsibly treat your conditions
  2. Suggesting a simpler and less-expensive procedure if it is the right one to treat your condition
  3. Having frank discussions of the risks and benefits of treatments

Our goal is to provide a resolution to our patients’ problems that returns them to healthy living without unnecessary spending of either health care dollars or valuable time. Patients should leave feeling healthier, happier, and satisfied with the true value of the care they received.

Why See a Board-Certified Dermatologist?

There are many physicians and non-physicians who care for the skin, but none of them possess the depth and breadth of knowledge of a board-certified dermatologist. Dermatologists are the only physicians specifically trained in the medical, surgical and cosmetic care of the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. This is accomplished through 4 years of post-graduate medical education after medical school. A board-certified dermatologist has also completed and passed the American Board of Dermatology’s rigorous certifying examination and participates in ongoing continuing medical education.

By the numbers, the training of a board-certified dermatologist involves:

  • Seeing over 10,000 patients with skin disease over 3 years of residency
  • Performing between 1,000 and 2,000 surgical procedures on the skin, varying in complexity from skin biopsies to facial reconstruction after skin cancer surgery
  • Completing 6 months of skin pathology training, which includes review of over 5,000 pathologic specimens
  • To become board-certified, a dermatologist must pass a rigorous certifying examination that tests medical dermatology, pediatric dermatology, surgical dermatology and pathology. Board-certified dermatologists must then enroll in a life-long maintenance of certification program that requires regular continuing medical education, peer-review, patient-review, re-examination and completion of modules on patient safety and clinical care.

Once in practice, most dermatologists will see 5,000 – 10,000 patients per year. We encounter diseases ranging from the common (acne, warts, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis) to the very rare (autoimmune bullous diseases, genetic skin diseases, and rare tumors).

The result of this training, certification and continuing education is a physician without equal when it comes to diagnosis and management of skin disease. When you chose a board-certified dermatologist, you are choosing the best possible care for your skin.

More About Dr. Miller

Arlo Miller grew up in the small town of Grafton, ND. His parents owned small businesses, and as a teenager, Arlo worked in his father’s auto body shop. When his uncle Arnie died of cancer, Arlo started thinking about a career in medicine.

After high school, Arlo enrolled in Augsburg College in Minneapolis to study biology and chemistry. He spent his summers toiling in research labs, including a summer in a genetics lab. Arlo decided to move east for medical school and spent nine years earning his MD and PhD from Harvard. He became interested in dermatology through his PhD work involving laboratory research in a melanoma lab.
After medical school, Arlo moved to the west coast for an internship in Seattle. He met a nurse named Johanna, fell in love, and somehow convinced her to move to Minnesota with him for his residency training at Mayo Clinic. They soon married, and they had their first daughter the following year. During his residency, he continued his melanoma research, but ultimately decided to focus exclusively on patient care.

After his residency, Arlo and Johanna moved back to Washington to be closer to Johanna’s family, and welcomed their second and third daughters. After living in most corners of the country, the Miller family is proud to call the Pacific Northwest home.

I’ve been going to Miller Dermatology for a few years now. Their staff is exceptional and I have been very pleased with my results. I’ve had lip fillers from Dr. Miller and hydrafacial from Kenlynn. I highly recommend their office.

I went in for a microneedling service today. Kenlynn, my esthetician, was so knowledgeable and friendly. The staff at the desk were professional and upbeat. I’m so happy with my service, she did a phenomenal job, I will be back! Highly recommend this lovely office!

Finding a dermatologist to care for my family is a tough task – until I met Dr. Miller. My entire family from my 5-year-old nephew to cousins, siblings and parents have seen him! The staff CARES. The technology is top notch. A dermatologist who is passionate about real skin health? Yes, please.

Amariah G.

Miller Family Dermatology is absolutely Amazing. They are so attentive to their patients and really go the extra mile making sure all your needs are met. My skin is already 10x better. Not to mention their in house compounding is so affordable and so much better than anything you could pick up from the pharmacy! I will forever be a patient and can’t wait to try some of their laser treatments!

Alyssa C.

I visited Tim Cruickshank last week at Miller Family Dermatology for Botox and Voluma and he did an amazing job! It was my first visit and was a little nervous but he did a great job putting my nerves at ease and was very knowledgeable and gentle. I’m so happy with the results! The entire staff was very friendly and engaging and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable. Thank you Tim, I’ll be back soon!
