Patient Comments (5)
Without a doubt, the best physician I have seen in seventeen years of l..iving in Rhode Island. As a doctor myself, I fully trust in his skill in diagnostics and treatment. He is compassionate, caring, and highly committed to the health and well-being of his patients. Each member of his office team is wonderfully caring and patient-focused -- hard to find in this day and age -- always welcoming me and exceptionally friendly.

When I first went to Dr mirror for my shoulder he was awesome really cared about his patience but now that he has gotten too big for his britches it all about the money with him he could care less about the patient ,he refused to see my wife who was in a car accident over a 400.oo bill in a settlement case the we have not recieved reinbursement for yet , do yourself a favor find a more compassionate DR
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.

I visited Dr Mirrer with classic signs and symptoms of a herniated disc in my neck at c5c6 (neck pain, arm and shoulder pain, numbness in my hand, etc). I even explained to him my history if the same herniated disc. Didnt seem like he listened because he found a "torn labrum" in my shoulder (which nobody else was able to find too) and insisted on giving me a cortizone shot in my shoulder for $350. Seems like he just wanted to give a shot to run up my bill. No thanks. Stay away!
If you would like to identify yourself we would be happy to speak with you regarding your care when you were in our office. The charge you quote is inaccurate, and without a file to review we cannot know if this is indeed a factual account of your exam. Feel free to give us a call and ask for the office manager and she will be happy to assist you should you want to elaborate.

After 4-1/2 years of being told by another dr and his team following him that there was nothing wrong with my shoulder, Dr. Mirrer who was evaluating my hip told me to bring in my shoulder MRI's to my next visit and within 15 seconds he found a torn and dislocated labrum in my shoulder and showed it to me. I had more than 20 doctors from RI Orthopedic Clinic tell me it was in my head that nothing was found on my MRI. Dr Mirrer had me in surgery in 2 weeks and he used the MRI'S from previous doc
Marsha, thank you for your great review, it is very appreciated. Our apologies for not replying when you posted this, and we are very happy about your outcome!
