Leighton Miller, FNP-BC, MSN


4.7 / 5 (Based on 168 Reviews)

“I grew up as a farm kid, so caring for things has always been a passion of mine. It was easy to transition that into caring for individuals.”

Leighton Miller has an extensive history in medicine. He spent five years as the Director of Nursing Services for Meade District Hospital and is a board-certified family nurse practitioner. He has provided care to patients from pediatrics to geriatrics and received his nursing degree from the University of Kansas School of Nursing. Leighton has served as a nurse in different family practice, ER, labor/delivery and acute care departments throughout his career. 

“I thought about becoming a physician at first but I got to know a lot of nurses and that drove my passion into that field,” he said. “I got to know some nurse practitioners. That was a logical stepping stone and I haven’t regretted a single day.”

What would Leighton like his patients to know about him?

“I’m not a serious guy but I’m serious about healthcare. When it’s time to have fun, I have fun. When it’s time to get down to business, we take care of business. Doing so and enjoying life along the way is what’s important.”

Philosophy Of Care

I love the interaction with everyone. I’m a big believer that no one person runs the ship. You need a group for everything to be in tip-top shape. That’s not just working with healthcare providers – working with people in facilities, computer operators – everyone that brings the team together, even though they may not provide hands-on patient care.
