Further affiliations with Women and Infants Hospital include receiving staff privileges to treat patients in April, 2002. In 2004, he formed the Hospital Chiropractic Committee, which helped to develop the chiropractic program at the hospital. For the past two years he has been a member of the Women and Infants Hospital Safe Patient Handling Committee.

Dr. Miller’s educational background includes; undergraduate studies at the University of Rhode Island, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology; followed by graduate studies at the National College of Chiropractic, where he received a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. As a means to broaden his clinical knowledge, stay up to date on the latest treatment protocols, and improve his skills to better treat and service his patients, Dr. Miller enjoys regularly attending chiropractic seminars and workshops.
Dr. Miller provides expertise in diagnosing and treating varied conditions. His treatment protocols are diversified and customized per patient, based on their presentation, history of onset, symptomatic complaints and examination findings. Patients are promptly referred for diagnostic imaging/testing and/or to a healthcare specialist when deemed necessary through evaluation or lack of expected clinical response to therapy. Clinical working experience has allowed Dr. Miller to develop an excellent working relationship with a number of highly reputable complimentary healthcare specialists including orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists, and physical therapists. Complimentary specialty referrals may be necessary in certain conditions for the rehabilitation process.
In the treatment of his patients, Dr. Miller incorporates a variety of spinal and extremity (arms and legs) manipulative techniques, along with soft tissue techniques (massage and specialized stretching), and nutritional supplementation counseling. His goal is to enhance each patient’s own potential healing capacity and chance to achieve optimal health---naturally. Having been certified in the Webster Technique in 2003, Dr. Miller provides treatment for pregnant women throughout all three trimesters of pregnancy. The Webster Technique provides a safe/effective means of allowing a breech fetal presentation (feet first) to turn vertex (head down) without the use of potentially harmful external forces through the abdomen.
Adjunctive therapies to enhance the effectiveness of the manipulative techniques may include any combination of the following; hot moist packs, electric stim, infrasonic sound, and state of the art multidiode/multifrequency cold laser therapy.
Outside his practice, Dr. Miller is a member of the Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island, and has served on the Board of Governors for the years 2007 and 2008. As a youth soccer coach for the past 6 years, Dr. Miller has earned his E-license and enjoys coaching competitive youth soccer.
