I would recommend him to anyone. He has helped me understand what is going on with my thyroid, I just had a baby and I’m nursing he went above and beyond to make sure he knew what medications I could and could not take. The staff is always so sweet I always bring my children to my appointments the wait is sometimes long but it’s because he is very thorough with all of his patients.. which is something I really appreciate.

Dr Miranda is amazing. I came to him after another doctor gave up on me. I live in Victoria and will continue to make the hour and a half drive to stay under his care. With his help my sugars are now under 209 for the first time in 10 years. Dr. Miranda is knowledgeable and will work with you get educate you and help you take control of your own health.
