My entire experience was exceptional. Everyone was kind and helpful, professional and courteous. I was pleasantly surprised that the appointment was not in any way frustrating and highly recommend Dr. Fernandez and his staff.

Dr. Miranda was extremely knowledgeable about the medical issue I am facing and provided valuable and understandable advice.

Dr Fernandez-Miranda is the best surgeon, and he has my complete faith in the decisions made regarding my care. I am fortunate to have him as my neurosurgeon.

Dr. Fernandez-Miranda and his PA, Emily were both great. Both took the time to listen to my questions and answer them. Very thorough. Everyone in the office was very friendly and helpful!

Dr. Fernandez-Miranda is very confident and knowledgeable... and so is his staff.

I waited 3 1/2 HOURS to see this dr. my appointment was at 11 and I never got into a room until TWO THIRTY! this is completely and totally unacceptable. If I was three hours late for my appointment I would have been told to reschedule. I drove two hours to get to this appointment and it is ridiculous to wait that long to see a doctor!! next time I will ask for my Copay back and leave

December 12, 2017

The wait time was pretty appointment was scheduled for 11am and I wasn't even taken back till 12:15pm. then it was a half hour before the PA came in. bit much really
