From the Provider

“It’s important to me to make sure every person has a warm, supportive and non-judgmental experience with me as a provider. I value being a trusted partner in healthcare decision making: having open, two-way conversations and helping people reach decisions based on the best available medical information and honest discussion of their priorities and goals for their own health. It’s so rewarding to help people consider their options and I feel very lucky to be able to use my expertise in this way.”

    It was my visit with Dr. Miles. She was great.

  • 04/10/2023

    Dr. Miles is a truly outstanding physician. I'm a big worrier, and she was so nice about that and answered my questions.

  • 03/10/2023

    Dr. Miles is the first physician I have worked with that I felt asked me important questions (pronouns, circumcision, being comfortable being touched etc) that I didn’t realize were important until she asked them. I appreciated the concern especially as a queer person in a queer family to know more about me and I felt she heard my concerns.
