My initial consult was timely and courteous and the staff was helpful and caring. Dr Millett was very professonal and gave me much hope for my atherofibrotic knee that has been operated on 6 times by different doctors only making it worse to no improvement, His words that he had seen worse than mine gave me much hope and confidence and I'm looking foward to having my surgery soon.

Dr Millett and his team provided exceptional care, and I would refer a family member or close friend to him! The trip to Vail is clearly worth it! Dr Millett is not only a gifted surgeon because of my wonderful result after shoulder surgery but he is also caring and an excellent listener. Many of the nurses told me that they referred patients to him for surgery. His staff, including his therapists Christy and Dirk, worked exceedingly hard on making my entire recovery pleasant. The whole experience exceeded my expectations.

I found Dr. Peter Millett to be extremely warm, compassionate, and caring. He is both a shoulder specialist and a knee specialist, and while no one wants to have 2 surgeries, the experience was world class. Dr. Milletts surgical skills resulted in excellent outcomes for BOTH my shoulder AND my knee. In my opinion, Dr. Millett is an orthopaedic surgeon with a great reputation, manner, surgical skills, and a great team as well!
