Learn about Dr. Miranda

Care Philosophy

Dr. Miranda believes that well-informed patients make the best choices about their treatment. For this reason, he educates his patients about their treatment options, explaining each step of the diagnostic process and treatment plan in language that is easy to understand.

Dr. Miranda presents a matter of fact view point on what results can be expected, as well as the risks, benefits and alternatives to any treatment offered.

He believes that many orthopedic problems can be managed conservatively through such treatments as physical therapy, medications and injections. But when surgery is necessary, he uses state-of-the-art techniques.

Dr. Miranda treats his patients and partners like extended family. He applies professionalism and honesty to all aspects of his practice, and his ability to counsel patients in both Spanish and English ensures they understand his analysis and can express their concerns without conflict.

Patient Comments (1)
in San Ramon, CA |
I did my meniscus removal arthroscopy with him. I was not given any proper guidance before surgery. I was said that I can walk to home and I can resume my activities in 2-3 days. But after 5 weeks also, my leg is not good. When asked, I was said recovery time differs from individual to individual. He is very busy and does not give answers to all questions. He just moves out of chamber while talking even if you are asking him some questions. Not at all satisfactory
