Six years ago, the station reports, Dr. Miller "made history ... by becoming the first African-American pediatrician in this community."

The television station's report shows Miller blowing bubbles with her young patients, and includes testimonials from parents who speak glowingly of her professionalism and bedside manner.

"It is such a rewarding thing just for the kids to want to run and hug me and not run the other way when they see me," Miller tells the station.
