I can't say enough good things about Dr. Miranda and his staff. The service they give is second to none. I walked out of the hospital , without the assistance of any device of crutch, nine days after bilateral knee replacement surgery.

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
