Dr. Daniel Mills
Thank you for taking the time to visit my practice web site. I hope that after visiting my web site, you have a better understanding of my approach to plastic surgery. My ultimate goal is to make you happy, giving you the beautiful results that you desire by using the latest in plastic surgery techniques and technology. I believe this goal fundamentally starts with a strong patient-doctor relationship. I aim to treat every person, whether patient or staff, like family, which impacts the effort and energy I invest into each surgery. I understand that each person who walks into my office has individual needs and expectations. My office staff and I strive to take the time to build trust and confidence by listening to each patient’s needs and educating them on all available surgical and non-surgical alternatives.
Since trust has to be earned, I believe in spending a significant amount of time consulting with each patient. I feel that consultations are a forum for both the patient and surgeon to gather and communicate information to each other. My staff and I aim to spend the majority of each consultation listening and understanding your needs as a patient.
I want to ensure that you have all available information at your disposal to make a well-informed decision that is in your best interest. In addition to patient pictures, educational videos and materials, we would be happy to connect you with prior patients who have been through the surgical process. The bottom line is that I want each patient that enters my office to feel more comfortable and well informed when they leave than when they walked in.
I feel that my office staff and facility reflect my own values and standards for patient care. We understand that you, the patient, are making a significant decision in your life and we want to provide you the highest level of support and care possible. My staff is committed to serving your needs as a patient and supporting you through your decisions. We want to ensure optimal results so we encourage routine follow-up care. Additionally, most of our surgical procedures are performed on an out-patient basis at the private and discrete, state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical facility adjacent to our office suite, Oceanview Ambulatory Surgery Center, Inc. This facility is certified by Medicare, which means it meets the strictest of compliance standards.
I know that any decision you are considering will not be made lightly and I look forward to any opportunity to serve your needs relating to aesthetic plastic surgery.
Thanks again for visiting my site. Please do not hesitate to email or call my staff to ask any further questions. I hope to see you soon for your own consultation.
Very Truly Yours,
Daniel C. Mills, M.D., F.A.C.S.
“It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Mills. I’ve had a few major surgeries and never has a surgeon spend the time that Dr. Mills spent with Jen and I, he’s awesome.”
