Dr. Mirbaha joined Dr. Mills and the rest of the team at Eye Care Professionals in June of 2009 and also provides primary eye care at Advanced Sierra Eye Care in Carson City.

Dr. Mirbaha has excelled at each opportunity during her training and has distinguished herself by completing her residency with outstanding performance evaluations from the program’s director.

I would like to compliment the doctors and staff for making my cataract surgery a positive experience. I especially like how cheerfully and professionally I was treated from the first time I walked in the door. All phases of the surgery were carefully explained to me, and all my questions were answered to my satisfaction. When people ask me about my cataract surgery I recommend Eye Care Professionals.

Thank you so much for giving me back my sight. It really is better than it has ever been in my entire life. I look forward to seeing familiar things in a whole new light, with more definition and clarity. Thanks!

I was very nervous about the procedure but Dr. Mills took his time and answered every question I had. He made me feel very comfortable with everything. It’s less than 24 hours after my LASIK procedure and I can already see 20/15! I can’t recommend him enough and will always be grateful. What a positive experience!
