My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The primary goal of my practice is to deliver to patients evidence-based practices from both traditional Western medicine and complementary medicine, in order to promote their health and help enhance their lives. As a board-certified internal medicine physician with 35 years of experience, I enjoy working closely with my patients to provide a personalized healthcare experience. This is done in a warm and inviting environment, at our office, with excellent service and caring staff support. The MDVIP model allows us the time to work with our patients as a team to help meet their needs and work closely with specialists and alternative practitioners in arranging their care. 

We have recently adopted the BaleDoneen Method®, a unique, comprehensive and science-based approach to detecting, preventing and treating cardiovascular disease that includes early detection of vascular inflammation and appropriate management of risk factors. 

There are great advances being made in medicine, and I am excited to work with my patients in enhancing their care through these modalities.

About My Practice

My primary care practice is located in Elkridge, Maryland and currently serves Catonsville, Columbia, Ellicott City, Laurel and surrounding areas. I am affiliated with Howard County General Hospital.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Milles

from Dario in MD March 28, 2020 for Gary A. Milles, MD, MPH

Dr. Millis is always there when you need him. He returns calls quickly and will see you quickly. He follows up with calls to you.
His staff is personable and professional.
What I particularly like his office waiting room is not like a bus station!
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Millis before he joined MDVIP - when his waiting room did resemble a bus depot. He’s an outstanding… See more

Dr. Milles has been my primary care doctor for many years. He treats my whole person; only recommends the best specialists when needed; gives thorough annual physicals. Most importantly, Dr. Milles always gives me the time I need for my problems. I hope he enjoys his work, and is in practice for as long as he is able. He and his staff are among the most important people in my life and are… See more

from Catherine in MD March 15, 2020 for Gary A. Milles, MD, MPH

From January of 2017 until March of 2019, I had suffered eight ambulance trips to hospitals because of VERY LOW (63/37) or VERY HIGH (250/160 and 234/137) blood pressures. I finally asked a friend who is a retired doctor if he could refer me to a doctor who might be able to help me. He referred me to Dr. Gary Milles. I first visited him in February 2019. He LISTENED to me, ordered some… See more

from Elaine in VA March 14, 2020 for Gary A. Milles, MD, MPH

I have know Dr. Milles since 1992 when he came into my assisted living facility to care for my residents. He treated them with loving dignity. I became his patient and when he joined MDVIP I hesitated for a minute but could not leave him. Wisest decision ever. About 4 years ago I developed a horrible itch on my body. I was working but found myself locked in a closet at work itching and… See more

from Claire in MD March 12, 2020 for Gary A. Milles, MD, MPH

Dr. Gary Milles has been my doctor for so long, I can't remember. I was his patient before MDVIP and followed him over to MDVIP when he joined. The main words I would use to describe Dr. Milles are attentive and empathetic. I really feel listened to when I see him and he is very responsive to texts and messages as well as when we're talking face to face. His follow through is… See more

from Robert in MD February 29, 2020 for Gary A. Milles, MD, MPH

If it wasn't for Dr. Milles I wouldn't have a doctor at all and I'd be managing my chronic condition at some urgent care facility. Dr. Milles and his practice are exactly what I wanted and needed. I feel that I get the best value that I have ever gotten for my health care dollars at Dr. Milles's practice. You know what have you changed about your health for the better? I… See more

from John in MD February 28, 2020 for Gary A. Milles, MD, MPH

A few years ago I changed my primary care physician and started going to Dr. Gary Milles in the MDVIP group. It was by far the best decision I have made when it comes to my health. Dr. Milles is thorough and caring and always available when I need him. He is open to any and all ideas and understands trends and is always up to date on the latest issues. I never had a doctor who I felt… See more
