The beauty and serenity one
fi nds in the scenic pastures of
rural Virginia is an increasingly
r a r e c o m m o d i t y. Fa m i l y
practitioner Dr. Brooke Miller,
an eighth-generation resident of
Washington, Virginia, agrees. Dr.
Miller grew up in Washington and
answered the call to medicine
when he attended medical
school at the University of
Virginia and completed a three-
year residency in Richmond.
He and his wife, Ann, a nurse
practitioner, ventured to Montana
with their four children to practice
medicine, but after a year they
returned to Washington--where
deep roots beckoned.
Dr. Miller's late father, Newbill,
lived his life for the land beneath
his feet. He employed himself
as a farmer and real estate
broker, and was also active in
county government, where he
was instrumental in developing
zoning laws to conserve open
land. "My father wanted me to be
a medical doctor, and I wanted
to please him," says Dr. Miller.
"He was a very positive infl uence
on my life." His mother Carol,
now 81, was the postmistress of
the local post offi ce. Her father,
Dr. William Hodgkin, was Dr.
Miller's only predecessor with
a proclivity for medicine; he
practiced dentistry in Warrenton.
Dr. Miller's youngest t wo
children have also decided to
pursue careers in the medical
field. His daughter Ella is a
physical therapist who lives in
Washington with her husband
Joe Mantiply, a pitcher for the
New York Yankees. Henry,
Dr. Miller's youngest son, is
currently applying to medical
school and has plans to practice
in Washington as well.
After owning private family
practices in The Plains and
Luray, Dr. Miller and Ann made
the decision to join Valley
Health in 2015. "With all the
complexities in medicine, it was
becoming too hard to run a small
private practice," says Dr. Miller.
"We made a decision to open
an offi ce here for Valley Health,
and it was a match made in
heaven." With any luck, the area
will see many more generations
of Millers caring for the families
of Washington.
The 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th generations of Millers gather for
Ella's marriage to Yankee pitcher Joe Mantiply.
