  • Miracles in Sight is terrific! On several occasions I’ve needed tissue urgently, and MIS was immediately responsive. The quality of the tissue is always excellent. I’m particularly grateful for their assistance in educating our medical students, residents, and faculty by providing ‘practice’ tissue for use at the UNC wet lab.  The focus on customer service and quality products is evident with the delivery of tissue each and every time.
