There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr. Mirenda is the BEST! He is the most competent, easily understood, compassionate doctor we have ever dealt with.

I don't feel that the provider listened to concerns and did not explain different treatment options. My son is in pain and he did not address this when asked about it. His foot is getting worse and I am concerned that if not corrected sooner it will cause him more problems in the future.

Its always a pleasure to meet with Dr. Mirenda. Such a gentleman and wonderful doctor

The most wonderful, compassionate physician I have ever dealt with. He is so caring & patient with myself & my child my son looks forward to visits.

We have never felt more comfortable or confident with a doctor than we have with Dr. Mirenda. He has been working with our daughter since she was two years old and has gone above and beyond in all aspects of his care. My daughter chose him as her "every day hero" for a project for school - and rightfully so.

Dr. Mirenda was great. I particularly noticed how kind and gentle he was in handling our 1-week-old daughter; she didn't even cry when he manipulated her dodgy hip. He explained the problem, the treatment options, and the possible outcomes.

I am so pleased with Dr. Mirenda and his PA, Stacey. I believe my son is receiving the absolute best care and am completely confident with his health care professionals.

Dr. Mirenda is a very kind, informative and kid-friendly physician. We are so glad that we found him.

I really enjoy coming to my appointments with Dr. Mirenda.

Our daughter was placed in a Pavlik harness, which we've had no experience with and for which there were no instructions. The doctor quickly went over the harness, left the room, then came back to see if we had questions. We had to go online and print instructions and tips for using the harness. The office needs to understand that parents are in a bit of shock at what is happening to their child and could use some time working with the harness with the doctor present. It would have been nice if there were some instructions as well.

Dr. Mirenda and his staff continue to be excellent with our son and with us. We. could not be happier than we are with our visits and treatment at State College and at Danville

My experience was good because my doctor is so nice and pleasant. He is my favorite doctor.
May 26, 2015
Dr. Mirenda was extremely condescending, ignorant, and rude.
May 15, 2015
Dr Mirenda is nothing short of amazing. My son was very scared and he made him feel better. I would recommend him to anyone.
May 12, 2015
Dr. Mirenda was great. He always includes John in the discussion, is thorough, explains everything, and is very kind. I would recommend Dr. Mirenda to any parent whose child had orthopedic needs. He is a wonderful doctor. No discussion needed regarding medications.

I'm {illegible or inappropriate content} bringing my other son to him now!

Both the doctor and PA were EXCELLENT!! We couldn't have asked for a better team for our little girl. We are extremely grateful for both of them.

Brady is autistic and ADHD and Dr. Mirenda and his staff always keep him calm and he has never had a bad visit!
March 3, 2015
Dr. Miranda is outstanding! Initially when this situation came up with Ally, we were directed to Penn State Ortho and within one visit, I had moved her to Geisinger and couldn't have made a better decision.

Our care provider was very courteous towards my son and our family at his appointment. He took his time with him and explained to us in detail what we would be looking forward to at his next appointment, and that helped put us at ease. That's a good quality to have in the type of care he provides.
Feb 10, 2015
I always feel like Dr Mirenda is concerned about my son's issue and takes as much time as needed. I dont feel like he is rushed and he provides adequate information.
