Dr. Miller's story
"Quitting smoking is the single biggest thing a patient can do to improve their quality of life."
Dr. Richard Miller, a thoracic surgeon at Southcoast Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery, sees a large number of patients with lung cancer. He says a multi-pronged attack gives most patients the greatest chance of quitting: quit-smoking medicine, support, and being ready to quit. Dr Miller shared his advice about quitting to help motivate others to try to stop and to Make Smoking History.
