Ratings for Dr. Shane B. Mills
I am not happy with Dr. Mills and his affiliation with Scott and White. Scott and White hospitals are incompetent and basically ended up charging me double the copay every time I had to go to one of their hospitals since they had to pay for an upgrade of their software. As for Dr. Mills, he is very patient, courteous and has a great bedside manner. However, he likes to throw pills at problems rather than exploring other options. He prescribed me an anti depressant that was worse than the very minor symptoms that I was having. Which, were cause by one of the pills he prescribed to me. He should have just switched medications and looked for other ways to solve my issue.
Dr. Mills has a great bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. He took a ton of time answering my questions and he and his staff are very courteous. He is by far the greatest MD i have ever seen and I have no problems recommending him to anyone. While my family and I drove our RV to southern California, I ended up getting mono. Since I was in my mid-40's, this was unlikely to occur. I saw seven doctors in SCA and NONE of them knew what was wrong with me. My wife looked up my symptoms on WebMD and suggested I had mono. I brought this up to the last four MDs I saw and all of them dismissed this. I went through 9 blood tests and even begged for a mono test but none of the MDs would order a mono screen. After several weeks in SCA, I finally had the strength to go back to TX. Dr. Mills saw me on short notice and ordered a comprehensive blood test. He determined that I did indeed have mono (I did not tell him that we thought I had it since all the CA MDs "ruled it out".)
If I didn't live 225 miles from Round Rock, Dr. Mills would still be my doctor. He listens when you talk no matter what the subject matter, he is compassionate and intelligent. He has spoiled me as I can't seem to find a doctor where I now live that is as wonderful as him. He was able to help me with my mood swing problem that 2 other doctors missed or didn't treat. He's a great man.
Dr Mills has been my doctor for the last 15 years and I have NEVER experienced anything but quality care from him. I have NEVER had to wait an excessive amount of time to get in and see him. In fact I travel over an hour and a half just to keep him as my doctor and do not intend on changing doctors. He is very knowledgable, empathetic and caring. He spends time listening and follows through with returning my phone calls after hours as well as just returning my calls during that business day.I was prompted to come on line to rate Dr Mills because I witnessed a very uncomfortable situation where a gentleman was totally out of line and very rude to his office staff members and very WRONG about his facts. The gentelman left before even seeing the doctor. Doctor offices are where people go and get the help they need and hopefully as you read this you will come to know that Dr Mills is nothing but a very good doctor who genuinely cares for each of his patients and I highly recommend him.
