in Myrtle Beach, SC |
I went to see Dr. Miranda for cortisone shot in my knees. He told me I needed knee replacement of both knees but would not do surgery because I was moving to South Carolina. I suffered with knee pain for six months. Went to orthopedic surgeon who did X-rays and compared theirs with the disk I brought from Dr. Miranda. I was told I did not need surgery and got cortisone shot. Pain level went from a ten to a two. Sorry I didn't get a second opinion while still in CT..

I went to see Dr Miranda for a torn calf muscle, unable to walk and severe pain. he literally spent just 2 min overall without giving any details or diagnosis to me. Just gave a referral to PT and was in a hurry to leave. Why should I pay huge specialist fee for a face to face of 2 min?
in Marlborough, CT |
Dr Miranda and Melissa we're real nice to me my femur had a non-union fracture Dr Miranda was able to fix it and I'm walking again was also always wondering how I was doing

I was in a severe car accident in 2008 that nearly severed my arm. dr Miranda saved me. my arm was paralyzed for two years but with dr Miranda's life saving work i have some use of my arm today. Best Dr ever.
in Newington, CT |
Don't bother calling Dr. Miranda's office if you have Husky. I was rudely told - after being given the run-around about getting an appointment in the first place - that they don't take my insurance and good luck. I won't be calling Hartford Hospital any time soon for my healthcare needs.
in Simsbury, CT |
I've seen Dr. Miranda numerous times starting when I was just 16 years old and I'm 42 now. He is easily one of the best, if not the best, doctors I've ever dealt with. Additionally, I worked for many years as a Workers Compensation adjuster so I became very familiar with the outcomes of many doctors and again Dr. Miranda came out at the top of my list.
in Berlin, CTi |
I would definitely go back to him for any orthopedic problems. He is very personable and explained everything well to me as an elderly patient.
