Upon graduating from Texas A&M University with a degree in Human Nutrition in 1994, Dr. Miars completed medical school at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1998. He then pursued his sports medicine education at Michigan State University where he completed residency in 2001 and a Sports Medicine Fellowship in 2002.

With 20 years of experience as a sports medicine physician, Dr. Miars takes care of athletes of all ages, from youth through weekend warrior.  He has served as a collegiate team physician for over 15 years at universities including Baylor, Texas A&M and Michigan State.  He currently serves as Baylor Athletics, Team Consultant for complex medical cases and as a MSKUS specialist.  In addition to his role as team physician at Midway High, he has served as the medical director for multiple mass sporting events including Xterra Waco, TriWaco, The Bearathon, IronMan 70.3 Waco and the Silo District Marathon.

He and his wife Meredith have 4 daughters and are active members at Harris Creek Church.

Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice. Baylor Scott & White Health does not manage the insurances accepted for this doctor. Please contact the office directly to confirm coverage.

He did a good job listening and explaining. He gave options on care because he didn't know our financial situation which I appreciated. Even though we have insurance and can pay for physical therapy, others will not be in that position and he is ensuring they receive care they need and can afford.
