19 Patient Reviews for Dr. Milla

"I was concerned and scared but Dr. Milla put me at ease. After the surgery, I feel better than my 'old' self. Thanks Dr. Milla!"

-- Myra O'Connor, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Milla was amazing from the moment my husband and I stepped into his office. He took a couple of hours the very first meeting explaining the heart valve and the way it should work. Then, he took his time explaining how my mitral valve did not work!

He was patient and answered every single question we had regarding my upcoming surgery. He is extremely professional, kind and has a wonderful best side manner. He came in to check on me in the hospital and always came in with his calm demeanor and encouraging words. He has a wonderful support staff that was available to answer questions as well. It was a difficult experience to go through, however, Dr. Milla and his staff made it as easy as they could with their caring and supportive attitudes.

Thank you Dr. Milla for your expertise and making my heart better than ever!!!"
