the only complaint is the 2 and a half hour wait

August 08, 2017

I feel doctor Dr. Fernandez saved my life.

August 01, 2017

It was over an hour from my appointment time to me actually getting into the room, so just a long wait, but the visit went well once I got in and got seen.

August 01, 2017

no provider should take a cell phone call in the middle of visiting with a patient like the provider did to me. he decided that it was better for him to take a cell phone call than to listen to my concerns I had regarding my recent brain surgery.

July 11, 2017

My appointment was to inform me of results of an MRI and to touch base with the doctor about my operation a few months ago. My total time in this doctor's office, including the waiting room was at least 2.5 hours. other than this, I have the highest praise for this doctor.

May 02, 2017

This was my first visit with Dr. Fernandez-Miranda; it was for a consultation. He is a WONDERFUL doctor; would recommend him every time. Also very much appreciated Emily, the physician's assistant. The two made an extraordinary team. Please pass along my thanks.

Dr. Feranadez-Miranda is the best and so is Nurse Lois Burkhart.

Dr.Juan Fernandez-Miranda is a very kind, compassionate and highly skilled Neurosurgeon, he acted with highest degree of professionalism and yet communicated well with patient. I am very glad to have made a 30-hours flight journey from Jakarta Indonesia to UPMC to be taken care by him, I am very pleased with the results of the surgery done by him.
