I had ongoing shoulder problems and received excellent care from Dr. Miller over 1 1/2 yrs.  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 S.P. of Bethel, CT)
