I met Dr. Miranda for the first time yesterday. I am scheduled for a very complex brain surgery with him at Stanford in June, 2019. My husband and I knew right away that he was the right doctor for this surgery. Dr. Miranda is very experienced, knowledgeable, and has a very nice demeanor. I got the feeling that I was in the best hands for a very serious surgery. Joyce Kellogg

I am so grateful for the hard work Dr Miranda does. I was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma May 27, 2015 and had my surgery to remove my tumor on June 11, 2015. The surgery was a success and Dr. Miranda was so warm, confident and amazing every step of the way. An angel.
