My husband and I both see Dr. Mills as our PCP. We really like his bedside manner and how he talks to us about everything. our only problem is the wait time. We know even a regular appointment we will wait over an hour to see him before going to the room then sometimes another 15 minutes or so after we get to the room. He is insanely busy. I do not care for their PA's at all at the office so I refuse to see them
Dr. Mills is the best Dr. I have ever used. He is kind, compassionate and makes me feel like I am his only patient. I would follow him wherever he went should he decide to leave this practice. That's the problem - the office staff. No one wants to sit in a waiting room listening to staff talking about other patients. No one wants to leave message after message to have a simple request complied with. There is definitely a disconnect between Dr. Mills and the office staff. Not his nurse(s) who are efficient and caring, the office staff in general. I often wonder as I am sitting on hold and I'm number 11 in line if I'm ever going to get through. He and his patients deserve better support.
I have been a patient of Dr. Mills for about twenty years. Dr. Mills has always been caring , and patient with me. I have a lot of health issues, and his knowledge is wide spread about medical problems. I drive about fifty minutes to see Dr. Mills. I know that's a long way, but he's such a good doctor it's worth it.
