"Been a patient of Dr Amanda Miller there for 5 years. Other doctors and PA's are available if she is not. Dr Miller is very friendly and thorough. She explains any changes in care and why she is recommending them. Does not pressure if you don't want to make the change. Is willing to let you make a change in lifestyle to see if that will help before she prescribes medication."- J.C. / Google / Oct 19, 2023
