My experience with Dr. Mirza was good. He repaired a torn Bi-cep and there were no issues. This surgery was done in August of 2018. I now find out in September of 2020 that his billing department somehow screwed up and I never received an invoice for a balance due. The balance due was from services on August 2nd 2018. I was in his office at least three times after that and the last office visit was on December 20th 2018 and No one ever said a word to me about a balance due. I only found out about the balance due because it was turned over to a collection agency and it has now showed up on my credit rating causing a very negative impact. I would not go back to Dr Mirza again because I do not want to deal with such an incompetent billing department!

TERRY M GOFORTH – Sep 05, 2020
Outstanding support for my concerns. Listened to me and spent more time than most surgeons do. He was very understanding about my specific needs as a patient and provided great detailed explanations and education material. Very aware of the different social, cultural and gender related issues that matter to patients. Very insightful and friendly. I felt very calm and comforted by his mannerism and approach. My joint replacement went very well and feel like I have a new lease on life.

Cypress, CA – Nov 30, 2016
Very unprofessional speaks to his assistant in room whIle ignoring his patient is in the room. Doesn't explain anything to patient and if you have questions he talks down to you the patient for questioning him. Over books and in a rush does not listen to patient concerns. Absolutely no bed side manners very rude and a waste of time avoid at all cost! I left crying at the poorest experience I have ever had.
