About Dr. Miller’s practice:
Dr. Miller is a solo practitioner with no corporate affiliation. Her clinic is a low-overhead model designed to provide the ideal patient care experience with longer appointment times, increased direct physician access to patients and personalized service. She continues to provide inpatient rehabilitation services on a limited basis and continues to accept insurances.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation:
A Board Certified Physiatrist, Dr. Miller continues to provide rehabilitation services. For primary care physicians, she can reduce your burden of care for patients requiring management of PT/OT/SLP, orthotics, prosthetics, musculoskeletal complaints, DME Rx, management of functional deficits and decline, and EMG/NCS if there is consistent demand for this service. Due to solo practice, she is not providing Botox or chronic narcotic Rx services.
Dr. Miller trained in acupuncture in medical school and residency and has additional formal medical acupuncture training as well.
The Osteopathic physician uses their hands to diagnose and treat a variety of injuries and illnesses using Osteopathic Manual Medicine (OMM), also known as Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). Musculoskeletal pain is most commonly addressed, but many other conditions are also amenable to OMT. OMT may also be used for PTSD, depression, fibromyalgia, head injury, headache, carpal tunnel syndrome, IBS, colic/feeding problems and more!
By the time patients see Dr. Miller, often they have seen every other medical specialty, had every workup, tried every medication and still “aren’t better”.
Your patient’s appointment will be with Dr. Miller every visit, not a mid-level provider.
ADDRESSING YOUR CONCERNS:
Dr. Miller does not:
“Crack necks.” There is no risk of adverse outcomes associated with reports of aggressive spinal manipulations since Dr. Miller does not use these methods, nor are they known to occur with Osteopathic care.
Undermine medical care/PCP relationships. All patients are actively encouraged to make informed choices regarding their care and follow up with their PCP and other specialists for comprehensive medical care and expert opinions. If you provide any of the same services, appropriate deferences will be made.
Keep patients going to appointments several times a week for months incurring large expenses. There are no extensive “treatment plans”, patients are evaluated each visit and treated accordingly. For some, one visit is enough, some acute cases require weekly or bi-weekly visits initially then less frequently as their condition stabilizes, some, such as severely arthritic patients, stay most functional and mobile with monthly visits.
Patients likely to benefit:
Motivated to “get better”
Complicated medical conditions
Decreased quality of life
Want to avoid surgery
Failed medical/surgical interventions
Need “something more” in addition to traditional medical and surgical treatments
