I've been sick for two years. I've lost my job, my health, my income, and so much more. seeing the specialist who was able to help and give me some hope is worth more than I can write in this little box. I thank God for Dr. Miglis and the whole autonomic team
he's amazing. and the technician was also amazing
I had a very good experience with my care provider.
Dr. Miglis is an excellent doctor who communicates well and is very through!
Excellent experience during both visits with Dr. Miglis
Dr. Singh was very kind, informative and through.
I am very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Miglis. I had a very frustrating history with my sleep disorder(s), which had never been treated effectively previously despite a lot of effort over the years to seek evaluation and treatment, and it was a great relief to me that Dr. Miglis was able to give a second opinion on my previous test results (multiple sleep studies that I had been previously told were inconclusive) and get me started on more effective treatment. He was approachable and direct and gave clear explanations for everything we talked about.
The doctor seemed to know a rather rare condition that I may have. He provided me with a nine page description of this condition. he also answered my questions on My Health very clearly. He presented a plan to move forward with additional visits to other specialists and is trying medication. This is the first time that I have felt that I was heard and have some hope for a better future.
I had my luggage stolen with my CPAP machine in it. I informed the doctor that my sleep is impossible without the machine. He was very understanding until I informed him that I need the process to be accelerated. He said that the process would take a few days. I had already telephoned Verus Healthcare (DME company) and was told that if I could procure a prescription and insurance approval that I could get the machine in just a day or two. He was glad to give me the prescription for the machine to expedite the prcess
I had a very good experience.
Dr. Miglis always nice, gentle, friendly and professional, greeting me in, walking me to door when out. he explained my concern and treatment, medicine in details. update me for progress of the disease treatment research, that is very nice
Dr. Miglis is one of the best doctors whom I have met in the Stanford Health Care system. He understood that I was at the clinic because my regular doctor required my visit to the sleep clinic as a precondition for continuing to prescribe sleeping pills for me, and he approved my request for Temazepam, which does not create a risk of sleepwalking. He also gave me the courage to ask my spouse to stop drinking (I stopped a few months over a year ago) because it is her snoring which really keeps me awake. She has now agreed "to stop drinking for me"!
Dr. Miglis is caring and excellent.
Excellent provider. Courteous, professional, knowledgeable.
Professional, on time, cares about my medical problems, seems like a seriously smart doctor.
Dr. Miglis is always accommodating and helpful. I've recommended him to several friends and relatives.
My Doctor (Dr. Miglis) is an OUTSTANDING professional! He is attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, concerned and a true patient advocate!
Very professional. Outstanding
Dr. Miglis is an exceptional sleep doctor. He spent a lot of time with me to understand my health issues and concerned my progress a lot. Without him, I would not be like what I am now. Exceptionally good!
I have complete confidence in Dr. Miglis. He always spends the time needed to answer my questions.
one best doctors I've seen in four years.
Dr. Miglis was very kind, compassionate and took the time to address my concerns.
if you had an excellent rating that is what Dr Miglis would get.
Dr. Miglis was very kind and efficient
There was no explanation for my condition. Basically said it was all in my head. Suggested follow up, but despite repeated contact, I haven't heard about scheduling tests.
Dr. Miglis is amazing, caring & truly wants to find answers. He looks at issues from all angles & will use hospital resources. Just wish I lived closer.
Was very helpful and listen to all my concerns. no rush just listened. Followup is needed. can't wait to hear the next step.
The doctors at Stanford are the best. they care about their patients and do the best they can for them
Very good.
I have complete respect for Dr Miglis. He always takes time to explain things and answer questions. I never feel rushed or that I am taking too much of his time. in my opinion he is a great doctor.
He prescribed a medication that will interact with a medication I'm currently on and therefore I can't take the new medication. He was very nice and I felt he respected me and my health conditions but I didn't leave with any hope or reassurance. There were no tests ordered and I feel like the extremely long questionnaire I spent literally hours doing wasn't used at all. I feel like concerns addressed in the survey weren't addressed at all in the appointment but that I should've gone through it with the doctor in person to have any potential issues discussed.
Dr. Miglis was also my father's care provider. My father passed away April of 2017. Dr. Miglis was aged send angel who took care of my father for few years. Dr. Miglis is an asset to your organization.
excellent bedside manners. Thoughtful and thorough care
I appreciate the time taken to insure I understand everything. Made me feel at ease.
Dr. Miglis was outstanding; he was engaging, knowledgeable, and informative.
Dr Miglis was wonderful, professional, yet personable and informative and took time with us regarding our concerns. we feel very confident in trusting our health issues to his care

The doctor was so wonderful! He exactly met my needs. One of the best doctors I have ever seen.
I had a very good experience with the care provider.
Both appointments more than exceeded my expectations. Both doctors showed compassion and that they cared. I was not dismissed and both doctors had a plan of action for follow up before I left. i was put at ease with both doctors they listened and actually heard what I had to say. It was the first time in a long time I felt hope.
Dr Miglis provides excellent care.
My wife and I am always amazed at the amount of time Dr Miglis spends with me. He is a courteous, friendly, and a very good listener. I am very comfortable with him, and I respect his diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Miglis always considers how my treatment has been going & makes adjustments as needed. He thoroughly explains my care & my health has greatly improved since becoming his patient.
Dr. Miglis is great!
I'm feel quite fortunate to be seeing Dr. Miglis. He's outside the box for a neurologist; I've seen the field from Duke Medical Center to much of the East Bay. In short, he listens. He observes. And he remembers.
Dr. Mitchell Gordon Miglis made me comfortable and satisfied in his explanations and answers in layman's terms about my health issues and related concerns.

Dr Miglis is a very caring soul. When you are there with him, he answers all your questions and if you do not understand, I let him know and to break it down in laymen term. Superior! I thank God for "my doctor" and I would not trade him . I have nothing but respect for him.
Dr. Miglis explained all the medications with each functions and side effects to me before he prescribes any. He takes time to explain my condition and his suggestions on how I can be treated.

Dr. Miglis always takes time to listen to us and explains what the followup will be.
Very empathetic.
I have recommend Dr. Miglis to any one. He is excellent.

Felt well cared for
I was very pleased with Dr. Miglis concerns about my problems and left our first meeting feeling very confident that he would provid me with help.
Dr. Miglis has an amazing bedside manner. I never feel rushed, he shows genuine concern, and always answers all my questions.
I am a retired physician and found DR MIGLIS one of the most thorough, interested in persuading answers to my medical problem which many other Stanford physicians have not cared to pursue or really take my history into consideration
Dr. Miglis was excellent. He listened to my concerns. Did not feel rushed. Made eye contact and focused on me as a patient. As a physician (my wife is also a physician) I felt comfortable and listened to.
He take time to listen and he's concern about you.
Provider did not listen to my concerns and instead focused the visit on what he believed the concerns to be. He was not direct when discussing matters and with his ambivalence I felt he was trying to appear empathetic when he was not.
really excellent visit with this Dr. - great continuity from prior years working on this affliction
Very knowledgeable and appropriately trained MD - hope he can stay with me during my medical problems which prompted this visit.
Dr. Gordon was caring, concerned and very helpful. I was very pleased w/my time with him!

Dr. Miglis was excellent and had a way of dealing with me that built immediate confidence in him.
The doctor I met with was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and caring. I shared my concerns and he responded by listening well and provided helpful information and advice about my symptoms and condition.
a humble yet competent doctor who is willing to go extra miles to help find out my sleep problems. Even help me with ideas to not move my chin and arm during the night.
He listened & explained in plain language. Went through the explanation of the process slowly & clearly. I did not feel hurried at all.
excellent patient interaction
Very thorough & professional. I felt cared for w/understanding & compassion.
Dr. Miglis is super nice, knowledgeable and understanding. I really liked his not prescribing medicines (pills) right away.

Excellent doctor ! !!!!
Dr. Miglis is awesome. He has been great every time I see him. He never makes me feel rushed and spends as much time with me as I need.
Dr. Mitchell Miglis is always (the two times I have seen him) very nice and helpful to me. He fixed my CPAP mask so it performs much more comfortably now. I really like him and will keep him as one of my doctors for sure.
Dr. Miglis is not only highly intelligent and compassionate, but able to speak with me without condescension. Rare experience.
Provider was thorough & informative
Doctor was excellent, very capable and kind, spent a lot of time listening, explained process and next steps well.
Dr. Miglis provides five star service and follow-up.
Dr. Miglis has been wonderful. He has spent time with me ,explained treatment options ( symptom control) and answered all of my many questions. I appreciated how candid he was about the mystery surrounding my symptoms and the fact that Doctors don't have all of the answers concerning the Brain.
The doctors were very good. I am personally discouraged that a cause for my condition has not been found
I like that he took his time in answering my questions. I did not feel rushed. He was professional, approachable, and a good communicator.
The doctor was very easy-going and it was comfortable to talk to him he gave us the time we needed to ask a question
I was very impressed.
Dr. Miglis has excellent bedside manner, spends the appropriate amount of time, explains thoroughly, and is thoughtful in his exam and looking at symptoms. My condition cannot yet be explained, which sometimes a physician will be quick to prescribe more tests or medicines, but Dr. Miglis included me in the process of next steps.
Dr. Miglis was patient and detailed and incredibly helpful in trying to find out the causes for my symptoms. I am generally nervous around doctors and his warm, caring style immediately put me at ease. He was helpful in moving up a follow-up testing and took it on personally versus having it be with another doctor. With his background in sleep medicine he was also able to help eliminate an additional meeting.
Dr Miglis is excellent!
Dr. Miglis is a terrific doctor who is caring, clear and informative when answering my questions, and willing to involve me in decisions about my care.
He was great and listened to all my concerns and I never felt rushed
Dr Miglis is fantastic. He is so knowledgeable and empathetic even when he hears me complain about the cpap etc. over and over again. He gives very practical advice that I appreciate. I feel so fortunate to be under his care.
I've never had a better visit with a non-primary care doctor. I really appreciated the amount of time Dr. Miglis spent with me and the amount of questions he asked me. It made me feel like he really cared about getting to the bottom of my medical woes. He also helped me schedule another appointment in a week, which is amazing because I was told I'd have to wait to april when I called.
My husband and I love Dr Miglis. He is really great!
Dr. Miglis was very patient, not in a rush which was nice because I have a complex problem, and very informative on multiple options for plans of care
Dr. Miglis said he was ordering lab work but failed to submit the order before he left the clinic for the day, which was immediately after my appointment. By the time the office staff in the lab could definitively determine that he was no longer in and there was no one there to order the lab work, I had waited nearly an hour. I was not happy. Also, no explanation of how I was to increase the dose of one of my medications...
We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Miglis! Very knowledgeable, great bedside manner and very helpful when it came to dealing with my issues. All in all, a truly great doctor! Would recommend him in a flash.
Dr. Miglis is very kind, professional, and spent a long time with me and my fiance, listening to the lengthy story of my health problems. He has also continued to communicate with me over the MyHealth online, regarding medication changes, lab results, and health plans. This is the best care I've had in a long time. I genuinely appreciate the level of communication and care I have received. A big thank you to Dr. Miglis and Stanford!
extremely easy to talk to and to understand
i was very pleased with Dr. Miglis he expanded everything to me what I should expect when I was going to have an EEG test. He did not rush me when I asked him any questions. I think he is a wonderful Doctor.
My family and I are so gratful for the knowledge of Dr. Miglis and the care of Stanford Health Care!
One of the first times in a while, I felt like the doctor truly listened.
Dr. Very generous with his time.
Dr. Miglis is great about answering my questions, even those not specific to what I am seeing him for, and making recommendations. He is very caring and thorough, and has a great, clam, and reassuring bedside manner.
I really have high regard for Dr. Miglis, this was the first time I met him. My only comment is that usually the other sleep doctors do a quick physical check (ears, nose, throat) and he didn't. Not that I needed it, but that was different. I felt like he listened and was very proactive and supportive.
Dr. Miglas is always kind, attentive and very knowledgeable. I feel comfortable discussing my health issues with him. He encourages me to contact him by email or phone if I am having problems with my sleep apnea.
I found Dr. Miglis to be attentive and sensitive to my situation. He took the time needed to listen in order to fully comprehend the situation. He also took the time to review previous care, but did not let that skew his assessment. I have complete confidence in moving forward to address concerning health issues.
Dr. Minglis is great! He's friendly and personable.
I was referred to this Provider for specialty tests. My appointmet wthim was for results of tests.( Which were negative.) I will not be seeing him again.
Dr. Miglis is wonderful and makes me feel very comfortable. I feel as though he truly cares about my health.
Dr Miglis has made a great difference in my life! Using my CPAP makes me sleep better, improves my memory and alertness and has greatly improved my quality of life. Dr Miglis is caring, kind, sympathetic, listens, answers all questions and gives invaluable guidance and assistance. I am blessed to have Dr Miglis.
The doctor is excellent, absolute confidence in him. Front staff seem more focused on things other than those presenting for appointments but they are doing their job.
Dr. Miglis is always on time, up to date about my medical history, and responsive to feedback - excellent doctor!
Dr. M. is excellent!
Dr. Miglis is helping me get better so that makes me happy.
Very good experience, overall.
Dr. Miglis showed concern and caring - I'm grateful for his help.
The provider will refer me to the Stanford Hospital Neurological Labs for possible further tests/trials. I await this appointment call.
Dr. Miglis is one of the best MD's I have worked with personally & professionally.
My experience with the provider was all very good!
Dr. Miglis has been a blessing for me. His openness, attention to my needs, and general concern have made a huge difference in my life.
Outstanding experience. Dr. Miglis was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, etc. I'm extremely satisfied.
Poor judgment of provider about dropping amount of medication that was prescribed for me - It was a waste of time driving so far for this appointment. Not at all helpful!
My experience with Dr. Miglis was the best doctor visit I have ever had. He is a wonderfully warm, "down to earth" person. A pleasure!
One of the best doctors I have had the pleasure to see. Very thorough.
