5 Star Review on Yelp from S.P.Patient

“I had ongoing shoulder problems and received excellent care from Dr. Miller over one and half years. Finally, after relapses, I had arthroscopic surgery. Excellent results and it is wonderful to be pain-free! All office staff, nurses and radiology staff also are great.”

5 Star Review on Yelp from B. W.Patient

"Dr. Seth Miller is the best of the best! Before the surgery during consultation he answers all of your questions thoroughly and clearly and takes all the time that you need to feel comfortable.
