Ratings for Dr. Patricia A. Miller
Where do I begin!! I'm new to the area and needed a doctor to remove my IUD because it was causing problems. Dr. Miller is so rude and her staff makes it seem as if you are bothering them. I tried to discuss issue I was having with her and she pretty much just dismissed me. I constantly had to call to get results from my test and I even bled heavily after she did a pap smear. She was so ruff with everything! After finally getting my results we agreed to remove it, I scheduled the DNC and it was supposed to be 30 minutes procedure. She kept me for over an hour and a half. Then told the person who was waiting to take me home well she has 5 more years left so she can just wait. Keep in mind it is embedded in my uterus. So it needs to be removed as soon as possible. She never called to check on me or called to schedule a follow up. I will never recommend her to ANY ONE!!! If you can go anywhere else please do.
Worst Gynocologist I've ever had. The entire office was unfriendly including her. Very cold person. I asked about getting screening for ovarian via CA125 testing because my Mother had breast cancer and died of ovarian cancer. I knew that my family history put me in a high risk catagory. She and her nurse acted like I was ridiculous, an alarmist and a hypochondriac. I changed Doctors immediately, explained my history and they immediately sent me in for screening. In the end, I did end up with breast cancer and the BRCA cancer gene for breast and ovarian. Avoid Dr Patricia Miller when picking a Doctor.
Perhaps Dr.Miller's popularity has more to do with long-time clients or local nostalgia. In my experience with her, she was completely disengaged, and seemed totally uninterested in my visit. I was turned off by the dated, dusty waiting room (including torn chair cushions) and the rude staff member (don't recall her name, middle-age, short dark hair) who quoted a different cost than the one she stated over the phone. When I questioned the discrepancy, she was instantly angered. Maybe she was hoping I wouldn't notice. Dr. Miller also misdiagnosed me. I sought other opinions, thankfully, because the medication she prescribed was not at all what another 2 doctors recommended. Maybe Dr. Miller was awesome sauce back in the day, but I prefer to see a doctor who still cares, no matter how long they've been in practice.
I have been using Dr Miller for over 14 yrs and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. She has a heart of GOLD and knows her stuff. Karen has always been nice and there when I needed something. I just wish Dr Miller could doctor me for everything. I love her and her staff very much. She delivered both of my children and always had good manners. She is the one and only she is there for you.

I was living in Huntsville when Dr. Patricia Miller delivered my son. I found her to be understanding about the labor and delivery process. I found her to be helpful and knowledgeable. I had a bad experience in losing a child at birth from another doctor. Patricia Miller made my labor and delivery experience one that was stress-free and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. I found her to be competent, caring, compassionate, understanding, intelligent, and very knowledgeable. She is not one to dress up and wear makeup because she spends her time caring for women's health issues. As a doctor, she is an excellent doctor and one that people can trust to make good decisions and ensure the best health for both mother and baby,
I went to Dr. Miller for a biopsy after an abnormal pap smear. She has lots of knowledge, but has a cold bedside manner and was dressed like she was going to a night club (no doctor coat, no gloves). She didnt do a very good job with the biopsy either, which caused significant bleeding. But the worst part of the experience was when her old coonhound dog got up and entered the exam room while we were discussing my results. Never in my life have I had a doctor allow an animal into an exam room. I have to think there is some sort of a law against this somewhere, even in Alabama. I dont recommend Dr. Miller.
I went to Dr Miller 3 times during my pregnancy and decided to change doctors midway through. The staff, was not rude, but was never friendly. It honestly seemed as if they did not enjoy their job at all. Dr Miller was always punctual but then again, its because her office was always empty. Helpfulness, not al all. She did not go into detail about anything with me, then asked if I had questions, I had none because I did not know what to ask. With this being my first, I wish she had of seemed a little more interested and given me a lot of info. When I asked a question, I always feel stupid afterwards. I LOVED my new doctor and do not suggest that you go to Dr Miller.
