While you may occasionally see Joyce when you walk in, she mainly will help you check out after your appointment. With more than 30 years of experience, she is who we go to when there are questions about insurance and billing. What Joyce can’t answer then and there (which rarely happens!), she will dig into and find the answers for you.


Julie is most often found in the first examination room and works with patients on the preliminary tests for Dr. Miller. She is also our in house comedian and has patients and coworkers cracking up. Don’t be surprised if Julie has you laughing until you cry!

Makaella is one of our frame stylists, and will help you with contacts or pick out frames after Dr. Miller sees you. She has an amazing sense of style and will make it easier to pick out those perfect frames. Don’t be surprised if each time you are here you see her in different frames. Makaella has quite the collection of glasses!


Samantha (Sam for short) is one of our frame stylists who loves to help patients pick out fun, funky frames or find the right contacts. Sam also helps elsewhere in the office, including billing, and fills in to solve any issues our patients have. She is the problem solver in the office! If you have any concerns, Samantha would be more then happy to find a solution for you.
