What People Say About Dr. Diego Miranda, MD

Front clerk was polite. Office RN was very hostile. Dr does not listen to your concerns. Seems to be in a hurry to get you out of office. Rude and condescending. Post op instructions are limited. Answers to Pt’s questions are vague therefore care is lacking. Their behavior does not instill confidence in them. Will not return to this Dr. Will Not recommend them to anyone. Certainly wish I had read his reviews prior to seeing him

If your wife has an appointment with this guy, you better accompany her! He was very rude to her, acted irritated that she was even there, and basically called her a liar about her pain because "she didnt make a face" when she said it hurt. He also said she was "too young" to have any issues and basically blew her off as well as the nurse. My wife was shocked, appalled at his manners, and immediately cancelled all further appointments with him. We will not use him again. Avoid at all costs!

Absolutely terrible service. The staff was rude and gave me the run-around in regards to insurance. They also were making me wait 3 days to fix a broken bone even though I was referred by the hospital to go there.

Dr. Miranda took very good care of my two hands that had Carpal Tunnel. He also did surgery on my right hand for excessive arthritis. I found him to be attentive and always concerned about my condition. Both of my hands are much better now and I am very happy that I chose Dr. Miranda. Dr. Miranda and his Staff are very professional and were always ready to answer my questions. Thank you Dr. Miranda.

I wish I had read his reviews before I went and saw this man. He was so rude and rough with my broken hand. I went to see him due to a referral from Willis Knighton Bossier ER. His condescending behavior along with his staff was intolerable .. I was so unsatisfied with his care that I left there and immediately went and saw another orthopedic MD. When a person is injured compassion and care go a long way. This is something that I did not receive from this Doctor.

Miranda is rude, he doesn't take any time with trauma patients, he's condescending, and his staff fails to follow through with necessary paperwork. I was referred to him via WKB ER. If you get hurt, go elsewhere.
