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 Ecuador, 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
Spent two weeks in Chone, Ecuador near the epicenter of the earthquake with Samaritan’s Purse’s Disaster Assistance Medical Relief Team (DART) in their Emergency Field Hospital. SP is literally saving lives…physically, mentally, & spiritually! I performed my first appendectomy as primary surgeon in 33 years! Only 2,727 miles from home! My new DART nickname…”Hawkeye” from the “MASH” TV series! How inspiring to see where those Samaritan’s Purse shoeboxes end up going! It was a privilege to help pass them out to hundreds & hundreds & hundreds of children during Dia del niño (Day of the Child Festival) in Ecuador!!! And very moving to see the so excited & happy faces as they received them!
