Philosophy of Care
"My philosophy of care involves providing compassionate, evidence-based, and effective care to help achieve a healthy life. I believe health care should be pragmatic and empathetic.  I am a good listener and view my patients as partners in health.  I love both the science and the art of medicine, and find the personal relationships in primary care rewarding."

    Dr Miano is one of the best doctors I've ever been privileged to be a patient of! She is very thorough and reviews the records from previous visits while discussing the health issues I am presenting with. I wish she could be cloned!

  • Aug 25, 2021

    The level of respect I have for Dr. Miano increased a thousandfold after my visit yesterday. I was listened to and felt care for. So much so that I told my friends about the care she showed me. She's an asset to your medical team.

    I am very happy with Doctor Miano professionalism, and dedication
