Dr. Charles Miller
Dr. Charles Miller has always had others’ interests at heart—before becoming a veterinarian, he worked as a registered respiratory care practitioner for 13 years, specializing in neonatal and pediatric critical care. When he began contemplating a career change, it only made sense to combine his love of medicine with his lifelong adoration of animals. Veterinary medicine was the perfect choice! Now, Dr. Miller has been serving the pets and animal owners of the area for nearly 25 years.
Dr. Miller grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia before moving to Durham with his mother and two sisters. He first joined the Triangle Veterinary Hospital team as an undergraduate student in the late 1980s, using the real-world experience he gained here to prepare himself for veterinary school. Next, Dr. Miller attended North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to earn his Doctorate. Shortly after graduating in 1992, he joined the Triangle Veterinary Hospital family as a licensed veterinarian and became the practice owner four short years later.
Medically, Dr. Miller is interested in orthopedic, soft-tissue, and laparoscopic surgeries, internal medicine, oncology, and endoscopy. He also likes staying current on the constant advancements in veterinary healthcare and passing this knowledge on to his clients. Most of all, Dr. Miller enjoys interacting directly with his patients and their owners on a daily basis.
Dr. Miller is an avid runner, cyclist, gardener, and car and motorcycle aficionado. He enjoys decorating his new home and spending time with his puppy Magic and a new kitten named Kobe.

Dr. Kim Craney
Dr. Kim Craney comes to us by way of Indiana. She was born in Indianapolis and always had an interest in biological science and physiology. That interest was initially satisfied through a rewarding 17 year career as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, the last 13 years at Duke University in Durham, NC.
