Dr. Miranda-Fernandez was excellent. I saw him for a second opinion regarding my condition. I flew from Alaska and I was self-pay. I received excellent care and the second opinion was definitely beneficial.

Doctor provided complete information and explanations of condition and how to proceed. We were very encouraged.

Dr. Fernandez-Miranda and Lois Burkhart are totally excellent. Everything is excellent, except there is usually a long wait for the doctor.

I think Dr.Miranda is great. He answers my questions with answers I can understand. If I need to go over something he will go over it without making me look stupid.
