Dr. Mirrer performed 2 surgeries (May and June 2018) on my right shoulder, Labrum and Rotator Cuff (Complete tears in both). The surgeries went well and Dr. Mirrer kept me fully informed from start to finish, and I'm happy to say that I have full range and use of my right shoulder without any pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Mirrer.

Dr. Mirrer perform a labrum repair on my left shoulder. He is very thorough and detailed. Made sure I understood what I needed to due and was very particular on my recovery. As a result I had a very good experience and would recommend Dr. Mirrer to anyone needing shoulder work. I did ask him about helping my wife who had broken her wrist which resulted in very limited mobility. He would not take this on as he said it was not his specialty but he did refer us to another doctor who did operate and resolved my wife's issue completely. Kudos to Dr. Mirrer for knowning when to say no and when to say yes

Dr. Mirrer is extremely focused and knows his stuff. He is the type of doctor that insists on reviewing an MRI disc vs. just reading the report. He takes the time to fully examine you to determine what your issue is. He is not one to rush into surgery immediately. In my case, he took a conservative approach but left me with options if things did not improve. I would highly recommend him. Additionally, I found his staff to be wonderful, in particular Connie and Karen who are in the back with him.

I have been seeing Dr Mirrer since 2001. I feel he is the BEST ortho dr in the state! He has performed 4 surgeries on my shoulders and in 2011, I had pain in my back. He took a n xray of my neck (which I thought was odd) however when he looked at the X-Ray, he immediately told me I needed to see a neurologist! I had had back pain for awhile and my primary Dr couldn't find that! Dr. Mirrer is compassionate and extremely thorough. I highly recommend him!

Dr Mirrer is one of the best orthopedic doctors in RI. He has some of the best staff people working for him from the moment you check-in to the moment you check out. Each member you encounter during an appointment is friendly, caring and respectful and has a great concern for your privacy. Even when I have called in with an immediate concern, an appointment is found as soon as possible. I feel well cared for and in good hands with Dr Mirrer and his staff.

The Dr. & his staff are attentive and professional. They take the time necessary to make certain the patient understands his healthcare needs and then they walk the patient through the process from beginning to end. The pre-surgical visits left me prepared and unconcerned about my surgery. My surgery was performed at RWH and my experience was exceptional. The surgery went well. And, the doctor and his staff have made my post-surgical experience and recovery smooth & easy. THANK YOU !!!
