An outstanding doctor! I recently had a lumpectomy and Dr. Miranda performed the surgery. He always went over and beyond to make me feel better with my situation before and after surgery. He is a very professional, caring, responsible doctor with excellent bedside manner. I feel very fortunate that I found him and would highly recommend him to others.

If you are looking for a caring and honest surgeon you should look no further. I am actually a Family Doctor and I had no doubt in putting my care in his hands. Not only is he knowledgeable and skillful (as we expect from surgeons) but his personality, empathy and ability to understand and answer concerns make him exceptional. Not many surgeons can give this quality of care. I cannot even count the times my own patients have thanked me for referring them to him. Another plus: habla espanol !

I highly recommend this doctor. Very good bedside manner and he cares about his patients. I had a breast biopsy and it was as painless as any surgical procedure could be. I went with Dr. Miranda based on the recommendation of a female doctor and I wasn't disappointed.

Dr. Miranda spent time with me to explain my illness, what the various test results meant, what treatment he recommended and most importantly WHY he recommended that treatment plan. Doctors are knowledgeable people, but the best doctors are also able to show an understanding of their patient's emotional needs when diagnosed with a serious illness and meet those needs. Dr. Miranda is among the best doctors!
