This simple network integration saves the patient and doctor precious time, while continuing to expand Dr. Millsap’s eye disease treatment opportunities.

He sees time and listening as an art that improves service and extends his healthcare abilities. He feels when you are invested in a patient you can impact all aspects of their life positively not just caring for their vision.

Desiring a slower pace in life, Dr. Millsap and his family were delighted to move to Salida when he joined Rocky Mountain Eye Center. Considering hunting, hiking, fishing, and listening to music are all high on his family’s list of enjoyable activities, Salida is a perfect fit. They love the small town environment and the sheer fact that the sun shines almost every day. He has experienced a lot of different places and loves to call Colorado his home.
