Title: Medical Director
Location: Scarsdale, New York, United States
Daniel M. Miller, MD, Medical Director at WMCHealth, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in critical care medicine.
Upon undergoing open-heart surgery as a child, Dr. Miller was inspired to become a doctor by the pediatrician and pediatric cardiologist who helped save his life. However, he first earned a Bachelor of Science in accounting and finance from the Sy Syms School of Business at Yeshiva University in 1997, followed by an Associate of Arts in teaching from Yeshiva University. Dr. Miller went on to work as an accountant, handling mergers and acquisitions for PricewaterhouseCoopers for three years before revisiting his childhood dream and attaining a Doctor of Medicine from the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University in 2006.
Board-certified in internal medicine and critical care, Dr. Miller served as a resident physician at the Staten Island University Hospital from 1997 to 2000, as well as a critical care physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and attending physician at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital. Today, Dr. Miller serves as the medical director of the Electronic Intensive Care Unit (eICU) and Telehealth Center at Westchester Medical Center, where he is also an attending physician of critical care medicine. He is chair of the Code and Resuscitation Committee and serves on many committees, including the Critical Care Committee.
Reflecting upon his career, Dr. Miller considers his most notable achievement is the compliments he receives for having a good bedside manner from patients and their families. Alongside his empathy and honesty, he aims to explain the patient’s situation in a very systematic way that anyone can understand. With these skills, Dr. Miller was tasked to help with communications between families and patients during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. Notably, he facilitated donations of iPads that were used to ensure patients could see their loved ones despite social-distancing regulations during this challenging time.
To remain abreast of changes and advancements in his field, Dr. Miller maintains membership with the Society of Critical Care Medicine, the American College of Chest Physicians and the American Thoracic Society. He is a past member of the American College of Physicians. Looking toward the future, Dr. Miller hopes to grow into a strong and effective medical leader in the critical care and telehealth field. Likewise, he would like to develop a better work-life balance and spend more quality time with his children. In his spare time, he enjoys listening to music and playing tennis.
