A Word from Dr. McMillen
“Concierge care is the future of medicine in my opinion. It allows me to practice root cause healthcare by giving me the ability to have longer appointments to truly get to know my patients and treat them with their beliefs, history, and goals in mind. Root cause healthcare is vital in working towards correcting a patient’s health condition through investigating the reasons a patient has a health condition in the first place to then putting a plan in place to assist in fixing those issues.”
Zoë McMillen M.D. is voted a “Top Doc” by her peers and is board certified in Family Medicine. She practices an evidence based and functional medicine approach, exploring all aspects of a person’s life, from lifestyle to family history, physiological make-up, and genetic predispositions, to determine the root cause of a health issue, and promote healing, not just symptom relief.

Get to Know Dr. McMillen
She was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and spent most of her childhood years there. She participated in many sports, and had family vacations on the beautiful east coast in Umhlanga. She enjoyed going on safaris and, to this day, finds being in nature in a wild animal reserve the most peaceful place on earth. After high school, she moved with her family to San Diego where she attended SDSU and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology. She worked each summer in biology research labs, was on the Mortar Board, received a coveted spot in The Scripps Research Institute Internship program and graduated with the Henry L. Janssen Honors Council Award after being inducted into all five Honor Societies. Throughout college she wanted to go to medical school, but health issues caused this goal to be delayed for a few years. This delay afforded her the opportunity to participate in the ground breaking field of human stem cell research and help teach scientists how to grow stem cells; her work was ultimately published.
After a few years, she continued her passion for learning and helping people at the University of Arizona College of Medicine school in Phoenix. Her desire to become a family medicine physician was confirmed early in medical school. Dr. McMillen received a summer research scholarship for research on aging and was President of the school’s American Medical Association chapter. Dr. McMillen completed medical school, and was inducted into the exclusive Arnold P. Gold Humanism Honor Society.
She matched into her first choice residency, University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix Family Medicine Residency at Banner Good Sam, the original family medicine training program in Arizona and the 15th in the nation.
