Dr. M and his staff took great care of me throughout the entire process and made me feel like family. I love going shopping now and I spend a great deal of time at the beach! Dr. M gave me my life back and I am forever grateful.

Dr M is very thorough and his attention to detail is unparalleled. The office is very professional and prepares for pre op and post op. The results were far better than I expected. He is a true artist and uses the most current well tested techniques. I am beyond satisfied with my results!

Dr Mills and his staff were always professional, friendly, focused and made me feel informed and at ease with every visit and phone call. Dr. has a wonderful bedside manner that calms any nerves instantly. This is my 4th procedure with Dr. over 21 years. He is a true artist and I trust his skills to the utmost. I recommend him any chance I get. He and his staff are the best in their field. It was worth every penny!

I always felt like I was in the best of hands with Dr M and every one on his staff. They were friendly but very professional and made me feel like I was their sole focus. My surgery went well and I had great care by the OR staff. I love my results and would not hesitate to go back to Dr M.

Dr. Mills made himself scarce the moment I put the deposit down for the surgery. I have had previous plastic surgery and know that results are not perfect, but the results of my breast augmentation with Dr. Mills are horrific. My breasts are now permanently misshapen, painful and lumpy. I am forced to have expensive reconstructive surgery to fix his mistakes. Dr. Mills relies on a misinformed staff to take care of his day to day responsibilities and never takes responsibility for his errors. After my results, he still encouraged me to have other procedures done, even though I have no qualms with those aspects of myself! But he has made no efforts to help or even educate me about what went wrong with my breast augmentation. I would never let someone I know go to him after my experience.

Dr. Mills and his entire staff were friendly, respectful, and most importantly, very thorough. I received excellent care and was so pleased with my results. Dr. Mills' entire staff made me feel very comfortable, explained the risks and benefits and listened to my goals.

Based on numerous consults and research. Dr Mills is the best plastic surgeon around! His attention to detail is unparalleled! I saw him 5 times before my surgery and he was thorough and honest. He made me feel extremely comfortable and the results are well beyond my expectations. He took extra care and time to give me the most beautiful shape. He is a true artist and the most kind thoughtful surgeon I have ever met. He teaches around the world and uses the most current but trusted techniques. My scars are almost invisible.
