The PA came in to talk with us within 15 minutes but then we waited an additional 45 minutes until Dr. Fernandez-Miranda came in. So that seemed too long to wait. Dr. Fernandez did a great job of talking with us and explaining things to us. thanks!

dr Juan exhibited high confidence which made me feel very comfortable with him performing the procedures and surgeries. without his confidence and explanation, my family and myself would have.been more worried. I am grateful for his high level of expertise and confidence.

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.
