Dr. Millard was very professional, with excellent bedside manner and answer all my questions and concerns.
Dr. Millard but me off when I tried to explain the history of my pain that has been moving from neck, shoulder & low back, saying that we will just focus on one area (low back) today. He said I should make another appointment to talk about my neck pain! Without the history, how can you treat a patient appropriately? The way he stopped me in the middle of sentence was close to being rude. Only when I mentioned the name of my friend who referred me to him, his attitude changed. I feel very frustrated about the whole interaction with him.
Dr. Millard is the best.
Again, was extremely pleased with the care and compassion of the care provider. Was listening and was not behind a computer screen like so many other places have now adopted. It is great to be treated as a person and not an anonymous patient.
