Dr. Miller answered questions thoroughly. She's as friendly as she is knowledgeable. She puts a positive attitude out and makes me feel that she cares! And she's so thorough. Doesn't make me feel rushed.

Dr. Miller is excellent. She is professional, knowledgeable, punctual, and does not rush through an appointment, but cares to address concerns very well.

The physician's assistant was rushed and cross, in my opinion, even questioning my pronunciation of my first name. Dr., when I complained, advised she was just hurrying so I'd have more time with her... I was just there for the medicare checkup, so had to remember 3 words, etc.. Assistant made me nervous, raised blood pressure and ruined my day.

Dr. Miller gave me very good advise regarding three issues which have developed in my recent health condition. She was very knowledgeable and very interested in my situation.

Very good experience. I have gone to this clinic for many years and had a different provider that I really liked, but she moved out of state. Dr Miller is my new provider and this visit was a consultation for us to meet and go over my health history. Dr Miller was very kind and made me feel at ease and happy to start with her as my new provider.

This visit with Dr. Miller was very good. My problems generally are with the cumbersome, inefficient office procedures. This time I completed the questionnaire prior to the visit. It wasn't there, so I had to answer the questions again.

My case was Overwhelming for her even though this time was our first appointment she didn't even bother looking at my blood test on my record and she was very defensive when I will try to go over my file with her and she had no understanding or no clue about my health condition and how upsetting this health condition is for me and how I am struggling with this issue she made it worse I walked out emotionally very depressed knowing that there is a provider like this trying to care for me. I felt she was rude and obnoxious and defensive toward me and all I was trying to do take care of myself and tell her what works for me and what doesn't in the last past 30 years of my health issue

I was astonished by the courtesy and professionalism of the receptionist. Then by attention and professionalism of Dr. Dorelan Miller, her patience and willingness to get to know my health history, since I was a new patient (my visit was a new patient visit). Then I was treated unbelievable well by lab and imaging specialists. Lisa was the name of the imaging technician, I think. Many Thanks to all of them.

The requirement for the doctor to document everything on the computer somewhat keeps their attention away from the patient. There needs to be a better balance for the doctor and the patient

I realize that the dr. is under time constraints. She is very efficient. I have been her patient for 1 yr. and during that time I had a TBI. I can work with her but I don't feel much of a connection or an interest in getting to know me personally.

Dr Miller and her assistant Adriana are always punctual and professional. If ever there is a time constraint it is due to my tardiness. Dr Miller always addresses wellness and is a credit to her profession and to the Legacy team.

Not enough time for the questions I needed to ask about my symptoms! Had to schedule another visit 1 month out for rest of what I needed to say. I 'm not chatty!

This was an annual wellness exam, which is a complete waste of time, except for discussion of my medication. No opportunity was presented for patient input as for any current problems or symptoms. A sign posted in the clinic was clear that a separate appointment was needed for such issues. This was a total suprise.

Dr. Miller has been my favorite Dr in the last 20+ years. She listens, is respectful, solves my questions or concerns first, then moves on to her questions and concerns for me. I wish every provider had her skills, manners and professionalism.

This visit was to establish a relationship as I haven't seen a primary care doctor in at least 5 years. Dr. Miller walked into the room and essentially said I had noted so many concerns that she wasn't sure she could address them in our allotted time. It was very off-putting as I only wanted to her to review normal labs my dermatologist had ordered and and a question about feet maintenance. I walk 40 miles a week and am in excellent health. I am debating whether to look for another doctor to establish care.

There is a sign on the receptionist desk that says "check out here" so I went to this place after my meeting with the doctor. The woman did not acknowledge me for several minutes and when she did she rudely said "Can I help you? I'm on the phone." I was shocked because I thought this is where I was supposed to be. I said the signs says to check out here. She rudely asked me if I needed another appointment and I said no. then she said then I don't need to be standing here - that I only needed to be there if I needed to schedule a second visit. It was one of the rudest situations I've encountered at a doctors office. I'm very disappointed with my experience that could have been avoided if the sign was taken down.

Dr. Dorelan and Adriana (her assistant) are always both friendly and competent. For this visit I needed help right away for an infected finger. the antibiotics are working & I'm very pleased. I've already recommended Dr. Dorelan to a friend whose doctor has retired.

Way too much emphasis on asking me personal questions unrelated to my visit. Also, I was not allowed enough time to ask two important health questions. I was disappointed, but will give the doctor another chance.

I did recommend my friends to Dr. Miller as she was excellent until 2019. However, for last 1-2 years I am seeing that she has a condescending attitude, lack of empathy, more interest in typing in notes, and a tendency to assume that I am too anxious and a demonstrates a dismissive attitude which I very much disliked. I will probably need to find a new doctor outside of legacy.

I originally came to Dr. M for an annual wellness check, but she diverted to my more immediate concern of a recent fainting spell to refer tests and get all pertinent information. The wellness check will need to wait until I get further tests. I of course really appreciate this. Exactly what a doctor should do!

This was a wellness visit. I'm not sure who (insurance or Legacy) named yearly check ups as wellness visits. I am [age removed] years old, I still have all my innards yet I'm given a pap test or breast exam by my provider. I do get a yearly mammogram, but I'm used to having my doctor exam my breasts too. My provider had my records on her laptop and just went straight down the questions then closed up my records without asking if I had any questions. When she got up to leave I said I had a question, she told me well I already closed your file. I asked anyway, I just think it would be professional to ask the patient if they have any further questions before closing the record.

On the whole my visit addressed everything that I had questions about. Dr. Miller addressed them all as needed. I have seen her only about 3 times at the most. She is courteous and listens, and gives recommendations for my health care. My health seems to be good. She was thrilled with the good blood pressure which made me feel good. I am not sure if she felt I needed to come in personally with my list of non critical needs. It is important to me to develop a patient/provider relationship which I have been used to with my prior provider. I believe coming in face to face at least once a year is helpful so that each of us gets to know one another better.
