This is the home page for Dr. Mark Miller and his family. We hope you enjoy seeing our family pictures and descriptions of our adventurous trips. We have moved up to Blowing Rock, North Carolina full-time. I have retired from private practice, but busy with Dermasensa (a start-up cosmeceutical company including exports to China), missions & family. We were in Fayetteville, NC for 25+ years from 1988, although I was born and raised there. We love to travel and go on medical mission trips all over the world. Mark has provided disaster medical relief in Nepal, Iraq, & for Hurricane Katrina. Mark has been to AFRICA (Swaziland, Botswana, Kenya, Zambia x 2, Zimbabwee, Lesotho, South Africa, Egypt), ASIA (Philippines & China) CENTRAL/SOUTH AMERICA (Honduras, Peru x 3, Belieze, Ecuador, Costa Rica x 2) and MIDDLE EAST (Iraq’03, also spending some time in Iran, Israel, Jordan & Syria in the 1970′s). He regularly provides medical support for high school seniors on mission trips worldwide. Carpe diem! mark, beth, will & jo, victoria & colin, shelby

Today, our CBN Humanitarian & Disaster Relief Team was deployed west of Kathmandu running a medical clinic in the village of Sitapaila. I saw 65 patients today while working beside doctors from Indonesia & Israel who were seeing similar numbers. Our 2nd medical team was placed in another village. We drove by medical base camp setups in Kathmandu from multiple countries including Japan & China (Incredible coming together of nations)! Of course, another 4+ magnitude earthquake took place early this morning! Although knowing they come daily, it still does not diminish these quivers’ psychological impact on me & the Nepalese people.
Tomorrow, our CBN International team ventures further east out to the far reaches of the Kavrepalanchok District towards Mt. Everest. I have not seen the mountain yet due to cloudy weather conditions and smog conditions in and around Kathmandu. We will set up our tent/tarp camp, cook by the campfire like the people we will be serving and run medical relief clinics from there before returning mid-week to base camp in Lalitpur just south of Kathmandu. We will be taking a revolutionary Air Mobile Rescuer water purification unit producing 25 gallons/hour of pure water and eventually dropping them off to the unreached disaster areas.
So you will not hear from me for a few days during this outreach. Your thoughts & prayers for safety & healing are always welcome & appreciated by all of the international volunteers assisting in this massive relief effort (especially me)! Reporting on the ground in Nepal, mark
