SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Miglis provides five star service and follow-up.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

The doctors were very good. I am personally discouraged that a cause for my condition has not been found

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I like that he took his time in answering my questions. I did not feel rushed. He was professional, approachable, and a good communicator.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

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

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I was very impressed.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr Miglis is excellent!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

He was great and listened to all my concerns and I never felt rushed

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Excellent

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

My husband and I love Dr Miglis. He is really great!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

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

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

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...

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

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!

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

extremely easy to talk to and to understand

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

My family and I are so gratful for the knowledge of Dr. Miglis and the care of Stanford Health Care!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

One of the first times in a while, I felt like the doctor truly listened.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Very generous with his time.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Minglis is great! He's friendly and personable.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Miglis is wonderful and makes me feel very comfortable. I feel as though he truly cares about my health.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Miglis is always on time, up to date about my medical history, and responsive to feedback - excellent doctor!

SHC Patient, May 2014

Outstanding experience. Dr. Miglis was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, etc. I'm extremely satisfied.

SHC Patient, May 2014

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!

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

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!

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

One of the best doctors I have had the pleasure to see. Very thorough.
