  1. Interesting. Mr. Miller was my case manager at Herrington in September and October 2010. I know Ms. D.S. and feel sorry for her.

  2. Mr. Miller was my counselor for almost a year. Mr. Miller was always professional. Never at any time did I ever feel uncomfortable. I am a very attractive woman and Mr. Miller never gave me the impression of being anything other than a very understanding, compassionate Doctor who whole heartedly and sincerely worked with me to help me in my sessions. Mr. Miller always went the extra mile to help me in any way he could as a Doctor. MAYBE THIS WOMAN WHO Mr. MILLER SUPPOSIVELY SENT THIS LETTER TO WAS A UNIQUE WAY TO HELP HER DURING HER THEROPY. I STANT 100% BEHIND MR. MILLER!!!!
