"Dr. Miars is originally from Grapevine, TX, and he joined Southwest Sports Medicine in January 2007. After 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 his family medicine residency in 2001 and a Sports Medicine Fellowship in 2002. Special interests for Dr. Miars include musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS). He has attended seven graduate education courses in MSKUS, including courses at The Mayo Clinic and the Andrew's Institute.

In addition to non-surgical musculoskeletal care, Dr. Miars enjoys evaluating medical conditions related to athletics. Specifically, Dr. Miars runs the Southwest Sports Medicine Cardiopulmonary Lab where equipment is used to evaluate athletes with chest pain and/or shortness of breath with exercise and tests for conditions such as exercise-induced asthma. Dr. Miars is board-certified in Sports Medicine and Family Medicine by the American Board of Family Medicine. In addition to his role as a team physician for Baylor University, Dr. Miars is the team physician for Midway Panther Athletics and enjoys working with athletes from the many schools in Central Texas. Dr. Miars and his wife Meredith have four daughters and are active members at Harris Creek Baptist Church. Dr. Miars has been involved in athletics his entire life. For the past six years, he has been involved in the growing sport of triathlon, founding the Waco Triathlon Club in 2009 and completing his first IronMan in May 2011. His personal experience makes him a great fit for all athletes."
