Dr. William McMiller, M.D., M.P.H.

Dr. McMiller, is a family-centered Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. He was trained in psychiatry, pediatrics, and rehabilitative complimentary medicine in California and Wisconsin as well as his home state of Illinois. During his 35 plus years of experience in clinical practice, he has come to be known as ‘Dr. Bill’ to a varying stratum of patients, their families, schools, and support agencies. He has researched and taught at major research universities, like UCLA and Rush Medical Center, a wide range of clinical topics from culturally competent psychotherapy to the ethnopsychopharmacology of Attention Deficit disorders. Dr. McMiller is a published author on topics ranging from mental health services policy research to the environmental social justice aspect of lead exposure at so called “small” levels. As a Lifetime Fellow of the U.S. Public Health Service, and an avid student of the ‘history of global healing practices,’ he is a committed advocate of using problem-focused treatments while advancing a systemic approach to biopsychosocial problems susceptible to prevention. For example, students dealing with diverse brain issues such as attention deficit or identity-development anxiety can benefit both from our teaching them how to self-advocate for their own support as well as from encouragement to advocate for comprehensive support and understanding on a larger societal scale. Dr McMiller enjoys classical jazz performances, collecting “religion and science as complements” memorabilia, and teaching Tai Chi to his young grandchildren. He has received awards acknowledging his unique approach to service from the American Association of Medical Colleges for Health Services Research; National Mental Health Association for Public Television Program Content; and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for mentoring doctors of color. Dr. McMiller is most proud however, to have contributed to the sustained happiness in the hundreds of children he has served over almost four decades. Dr. McMiller is currently accepting new patients ages 7 through 27. Call or email our office to make an appointment today!
