ERIC L.

From there he continues to be interested in caring for the whole person and the role of complimentary medicine in the pursuit of overall patient health and wellness. Other interests include technology in medicine, nutrition, meditation, and Sacred Heart football.
JENNIFER A. MILLER, MD A Bay Area native who has had the dream of caring for local patients as a doctor since early in childhood, Dr. Jennifer Miller spent years at Stanford University both studying medicine and successfully founding multiple non-profits including the now largest student run pre-med group at Stanford (S.C.O.P.E.), the Courage Project, several overseas clinics (e.g. Honduras and Dharmasala), the Happiness Science Project, and BeAGoodDoctor.Org. Dr. Miller was subsequently awarded a Fulbright scholarship for these efforts and completed a public health internship in Roatan, Honduras. She has served as an advisor to innovative medical companies and is interested in cutting-edge medical technologies. Clinically, Dr. Miller is especially interested in geriatric vibrancy and believes in integrative medicine and promotion of health as equal to the prevention and treatment of illness. Currently Dr. Miller practices internal medicine at The Village Doctor in Woodside, CA.
