"Dr. Miller is the best and he works at St Joseph which has one of the lowest infection rates in the country. My surgery while straight forward presented some issues and Dr Miller's skill. Probably saved my life."

"Dr. Miller is an excellent surgeon and an excellent guide. Dr. Miller answered all my questions (many) and helped me make the decision which was right for me. He and his surgery team replaced my bicuspid aortic valve via the minimally invasive technique (through my ribs) instead of opening my chest. His surgery team also made excellent decisions right after surgery when they determined I was bleeding. I had a low platelet count. Their remedial actions stopped the bleeding and I was sent to recover without reopening my chest. He and his team stayed with me through my recovery and I am extremely thankful. Dr. Miller is an excellent choice in my opinion."

"I am so thankful for Dr. Miller. He recommended minimally invasive surgery for my leaky valve, and everything turned out great. He is very knowledgeable, gracious, and darn good at what he does! I would highly recommend him, his staff, and St. Joseph's hospital!! Thanks again! Dane"

"Dr. Kevin Miller made an instant good impression on me, he was kind, gentle and patient. He answered my questions before I even asked them, he took lots of time explaining things to me, after surgery I remember seeing him and answering my questions, I wanted to know how I was, I think he might have been surprised that I was talking to him fresh out of surgery. That's what I remember. He told me the surgery lasted 9 hours and that he had tried to repair the mitral valve but he had to replace it, I am glad he did. While I was in intensive care I knew he was there constantly, I was very groggy but I could see shadows and could hear his voice and the nurses as well. I also remember the male nurse looking after me. I am very happy with my choice. Dr. Miller is the best."

"Dr. Miller explained the entire surgery to both my husband and myself in detail. The first visit was at least 1:45 hours long. I felt comfortable, and well informed. He and his staff were extremely competent, caring, and helpful. Recovery was a breeze! I found Dr. Miller on this site, and feel extremely lucky to have found him. He is the best!!"

"Kevin Miller replaced my aortic valve and root with a Medtronic Freestyle Aortic Root Heart Valve seven months after I first consulted with him. He is a very sensitive, warm, informative, efficient surgeon, highly regarded by his colleagues, nurses, hospital staff and in the community. He is a very skilled and thorough communicator (when he came out after surgery to talk with my friends and family, he captured the attention of all in the waiting room with his detailed description of the surgery and aspects of it; the people in the waiting room were enthralled), really listens and understands individual circumstances and concerns. Dr. Miller and his group (Front Range Cardiology - all excellent surgeons and very nice people) have the best outcomes in the area and put all of their statistics on the table for you to see. I was out of the hospital on post-op day 4 (surgery being day 0) and am doing very well. I am a psychiatric consultation liaison nurse and have spent my career integrating mental health concepts into acute care. Dr. Miller is a gifted surgeon and a kind man. He practices exclusively at St. Joseph's Hospital in Denver where I received the very best of care from start to finish, and I know good nursing care when I see it. These are the things that matter most when you need open heart surgery. "
