I would like to give a rating of zero stars but had to choose one. Do yourself a favor and do NOT go to this so called doctor. He has no personality, and as far as bedside manner is concerned, he doesn't even try. He would not listen to my concerns about symptoms I was having so I found another...more

Our office does not refuse to see a patient regarding an overdue balance. We hold off scheduling one until that balance is paid.You were aware of the balance due. Dr. Mirrer is a very compassionate physician, however with the medical climate the way it is, he must balance being a sympathetic doctor and a businessman to keep a viable practice. If you would like to discuss this at any time, I would be happy to hear from you. Please feel free to contact our office and ask for the office manager.
