Personal Interests

Dr. McMillan’s free time is spent with a little recreation (a mediocre game of golf) and with his wife Melissa, enjoying the North Carolina mountains when time allows. Both are thoroughly entertained by their musically gifted sons.


Dr. McMillan realized that he was drawn to a wide variety of people through his interactions while working through high school in a small town locally owned department store. He found enjoyment in the personalities and their peculiarities. He also learned in that setting the importance of service: the customer (and later the patient) is (almost) always right.

At the same time, he realized that he enjoyed and had an aptitude for the sciences. These interests and gifts were ultimately married in a medical career that started with a liberal arts education. Following medical school and Internal Medicine residency, Rheumatology fellowship included a mix of strong clinical exposure and Immunology research for which he received several awards, including being named as one of the top ten graduating fellows in the nation by the American College of Rheumatology.

The depth of training in people skills and technical expertise has resulted in a Rheumatology practice that provides a comprehensive and appealing practice for patients suffering from rheumatic disorders. Dr. McMillan was the attending Rheumatologist at Archbold Memorial Hospital in 1999 and in 2000 when US News and World Report named Archbold as one of the top 50 hospitals in the nation in the subspecialty of Rheumatology.
