I have to agree with k9handler's post. After being blindsided with unasked for and services during boarding, I asked what charges I could expect for this boarding. After going round and round about $25 per dog(we have 2) "required" bathing

Dr. Mills is a wonderful and caring vet. He cares greatly about animals. I had adopted a puppy from a rescue and it became very ill. He tried everything possible to help the puppy before we finally had to put him down. He did all this at very little cost because he wanted to make sure this puppy had every chance possible. My daughter made him her hero in the first grade for her project and both my daughters want to be vets just like him. He has gone over and above to care for animals. My whole family brings their pets to him and I will always trust what he says when treating my dogs. My parents had a greyhound that had to be put down and he was so caring enough to personally wrap him up in a blanket and put him in his truck and burry him on his property because my parents yard was too small. If you need a vet I wouldn't recommened anyone else!!!!

Very happy with Dr. Mills. He is a "no nonsense" kind of guy and I appreciate that. Our cats have experienced excellent service, including a major surgery. His prices are reasonable, the office is extremely clean, and the staff is very friendly.

This vet is crazy...Im a k9 handler who has been using him for years with my shepherds...up until a recent turn of events I would have SWORN by him with all these other people.
For the record, my life is my dogs and I want them well cared for....Dr Mills is a good vet, but I refuse to be disrespected, talked down to, and with a complete lack of unprofessionalism. I treat others as I expect to be treated, and this guy let me down big time.

I made an inquiry about a bill once very recently after having my female spayed there, and he sent me insulting letters telling me that I could go to val-u-vet if I didnt like their pay structure. He put my dogs records in the letter as well, telling me I was wecome to go elesewhere and for me to take my business elsewhere.

I did not want to go anywhere else and that was not my issue to begin with.

When I called (while I was deployed overseas by the way) to inquire what the letter was all about, I got yelled at, cussed at, and hung up on. He told me he refused to apologize and I was no longer welcome at their place of business (ALL FOR ASKING A QUESTION!!!) I was acting professionally and this grown man was acting the role of a kindergartner.

He is super unstable and his professionalism in dealing with clients has much to be desired. I had reccomended many people to him in the past including my major K9 company I work for...I will now have to rescind all those reccomendations.

PLEASE< please please...if you care about your pet and you like to be treated fairly, do NOT go to this man. DR Bruce Mills is a crazy person and unstable. Its not a question of whether you will have a bad experience with him, its only a matter of how long it will take for it to happen. Good luck, please find another vet though.

Pros: too many to list

Cons: none

I have to agree with Jeanine S. Dr. Mills is absolutely the best veterinarian I've ever been fortunate enough to have. He's been our vet for over 20 years and the best diagnostic vet I've ever seen. The people that don't like him are the ones that he chastises for neglecting their pets. If you can't take the heat, take care of your pet.

I've been a happy client of Doc Mills for over 12 years. He has cared for four of our pets, and has done so professionally, expertly and with genuine concern. He is a great diagnostician, surgeon, and all around attentive Vet. And charges are lower than any other vet I've ever been to. I know some of the disatisfied clients...and they are whiners. He does not tolerate whiners or people who do not take care of their animals. Whiners stay away.

Our dogs have gone to Dr. Mills since 2006. He takes the care of our dogs very, very seriously. So, don't expect to be treated all nicey nicey when you don't take care of your animals. He and his staff have treated us quite well. Their boarding facilities and boarding personel are also quite good.

Our Vet, Dr Mills, is compassionate, yet forthright. He does whatever is necessary for your pet and also keeps your budget in mind. We take both our dogs and cat to him and are super satisified. We are blessed to have found him and his staff.

Oh my gosh I am so gladthat I found this site. I thought I was the only one that hated this vet. He is unstable.

He is cruel and unkind to people and his staff especially the one he is dating is unkind also.

I have been gone from him for years, found another vet down the road who know what she is doing.

I believe the previous negative reviews that were written about this veterinarian and I'm thankful to see I'm not alone. I had bad experiences with the level of customer service I received from this veteranarian on separate occasions. I'm glad I trusted my gut and chose not to mention the concerns I had to this Vet.

Pros: Plenty of Parking Spaces

Cons: Level of Respect

two people who write such reports about a great vet that has saved numerious animals over the years obviously were unhappy about something else.. i find it very hard to believe what was written about him after knowing him and going to him for several years... grow up!!!

after being a patient for 6 years, he gave me an antibiotic that was 4 years past its expiration date that i used on my cat before noticing the date and it possibly made him sick with vomiting and acute diarrhea for 3 days. he then denied the date on the crimp of the tube when i showed it to him while yelling at me about not trusting him in front of the whole office. very unprofessional and i will never return!!!

Pros: reasonable prices

Cons: rude and uncompassionate vet

Dr. Mills was my vet for 7 years until last year when I had a very bad experience last year. Over time I referred at least five of my friends & family members to him and each had different, but very odd things happen with him. I took my dog in after noticing her behaving very differently (moving very slow, bumping into walls, drinking water constantly and eating a lot as well as rapid weight gain). I told him there was definitely something wrong with her. After running a ton of expensive tests and charging me $400 he told me that she was just getting older and slower and was overweight.....I couldn't believe it! After researching her symptoms online I discovered that she was blind - duh - he didn't even test her vision! I took her to an opthamologist that diagnosed her immediately with SARDS a disease in canines that caused all of her symptoms. Numerous times he acted incompetent and unprofessional (cursing, making bigotted remarks, angrily defending himself when questioned) He does not like his "authority" questioned at all. He told one friend (that started crying in the exam room when she brought in her sick cat) that she was not the kind of client he was looking for and that she needed to find another vet. She was worried about her cat and he yelled at her like she was a child crying for no reason. He actually threw the patient chart at another friend and verbally attacked her in the waiting room when she came to get her dog after a surgery he was unsuccessful in performing. I am curious if anyone else has had such experiences with this man....
