If you want to call a doctor's work to cure a disease a miracle of God you are free to do that. However, one does not need to invoke God in order to cure the patient. It is the realm of science.
If one observes a phenomenon that that is "impossible" there are at least three possibilities:
1) it is an illusion -- not the realm of science because the event did not happen.
2) it is a phenomenon that science cannot yet explain -- it is in the realm of science if it is a phenomenon that it reproducible, at least in a statistical sense. If it isn't reproducible then it becomes impossible to observe and falls out of the realm of science because science is based on observation. Maybe the event falls into 1 or 3.
3) it is a supernatural event -- not the realm of science because science can only study natural processes.
