I felt like the care provider wanted to spend the least amount of time possible in the room. showed no concern for the problem I was there for and made no efforts to look further into the issue. I´ve been a patient since I was a child and I will most certainly never return to see this doctor as I don´t feel I can trust what I´m being told is accurate or if it´s just to get me in and out as quickly as possible.
July 2018
Dr Vera is great. I have been seeing her for years now and I know she understands my issues and problems and has my best interest at heart. I have recommended her to others.
June 2018
like my doctor
June 2018
I went in for a routine physical. what was the point? I was given orders to get blood work. Nothing more was discussed. Very little time was spent talking about my health and she was out the door right after the pap was conducted. I´ve been seeing her for several years and didn´t feel like she asked any questions today.
June 2018
I was taken back to see my Dr. Vira ahead of schedule and finished my appointment just a little later than my original appointment start time. It was GREAT!!!
May 2018
I like *Dr. Vira.
May 2018
sometimes seems a little hurried, but the trade off is Dr. Vira is ALWAYS on time.
May 2018
Dr. Vira is terrific. She asks clear questions, listens, explains things clearly, outlines next steps, makes sure i understand, and makes me feel the center of her attention. At the same time, she is efficient and practical and I feel very well cared for.
May 2018
excellent experience
April 2018
*Dr. Vira is always professional and caring. She is also a very good listener!
April 2018
Dr. Vira is so friendly and makes me feel really at ease. Regardless of the problem she always works with me to come to a reasonable solution.
April 2018
Dr. Vira is our preferred contact for all issues. She has been very sensitive to every issue we have come to her for.
March 2018
provider didn´t seem interested in why I had come in. didn´t walk me through what she was doing or going to do to improve my condition. was in and out of the room in 5 minutes leaving me still concerned about my condition
March 2018
My grown daughter now sees Dr. Vera for her appointments. I´ve enjoyed working with Dr. Vera for many years. Very straight-forward and competant with warm and friendly demeanor.
February 2018
The Doctor was excellent
February 2018
Dr. Vira was wonderful. Even though I am not a regular patient of hers, she treated me like I was. She spent a great deal of time understanding my concern as to whether I was contagious or not. She is thorough, caring, and knowledgeable. I deeply appreciate her seeing me.
January 2018
Dr. Vira is amazing
January 2018
Dr. Vira is great!
January 2018
I have found the doctor though attentive, but somewhat rushed lately. I have had this issue for over 6 months now and feel that the diagnosis could have been done a little earlier, instead of me having to feel that something is definitely not right, and go for the same issue to the doctor a third time.
December 2017
Always receive excellent care from Dr. Vira.
November 2017
fr. vira seemed rushed and was in and out fast. this appt was for a wellness check and it was extremely brief.
November 2017
Dr. Vira is the best! very personable and present. Great bedside manner!
November 2017
I think Dr. Vira is an excellent dr. She took the time to review my medical records with me and answer questions I had. I felt like she was prepared for my visit, took the time to listen and offer her insight. Feels like a health partnership rather than an unbalance "Dr knows best" relationship.
October 2017
Dr. Vira is wonderful. She is upbeat, has a sense of humor, listens to concerns/questions and provides remedies, whether it is a prescription or lifestyle advice.
October 2017
With Dr. Vira for 16 years. In VM, over 35 years or more?
September 2017
I would not speak more highly of Dr. Nassima Vira and her staff and the entire Virginia Mason Organization. I would not think of going anywhere else for my medical needs. I LOVE THEM!
September 2017
Dr. Vira and Dory are both excellent and I have recommended them to others.
August 2017
Dr Viera has been my doctor for years and I have always have a positive experience. Her support staff is very good.
August 2017
For the past 8 years, I have been a patient of Dr. Vira´s, have absolute faith in her clinical decision making. She is caring and kind, explanations are excellent, and she is decisive in her care planning.
August 2017
Dr. Vira never misses anything. She is very thorough and professional.
August 2017
Dr.Vira has always shown a very professional & friendly attitude whenever I have seen her over the past years. She is one of the very best that I have had over my 50+ years of coming to VM.
August 2017
This was a well person check up. I did have a few concerns that I wanted to discuss. Dr. Vira discussed most of them with me, but one issue, she completely brushed off without even asking me about the nature of the pain or how long I have had it. If she was out of time or if I needed to schedule a separate appointment for this, she should have said so. Now I am still wondering what I should do about this issue.
July 2017
Dr. Vira is great. I have been extremely happy having her as my primary care physician.
July 2017
Dr Vira is very nice and very efficient
June 2017
Love Dr. Vira! I´ve been with her for a long time:)
May 2017
Dr. Vira was a good listener and came up with a plan to address my concerns. She asked good questions and answered all of my questions.
May 2017
I adore Dr Vira. I needed an appointment with the first available provider when I hurt my back in 2016 and she´s been my primary ever since.
May 2017
Dr. Vira, Sally her assistant, and the entire staff at Issaquah VM are excellent. I have been a patient at VM for over 55 years and the doctors and their staff have saved my life more than once. I will be eternally grateful for the rest of my life.
May 2017
Dr. Vira gets an A+ from me and I have recommended her to others.
April 2017
I love Dr Vera and would never go see anyone else! she´s been my doctor for many years!
April 2017
Although I´m sure she has a lot of knowledge, she was not a good listener. I felt like my input was disregarded and she didn´t pay attention to all the information I was giving about my symptoms before diagnosing the problem. Even though I knew that she was ahead of schedule, I felt like she was in a hurry to be done with the visit. I would have felt a lot more confident in her abilities had she appeared to take my input into account.
April 2017
Dr Vira is an excellent provider.
April 2017
The doctor was very concerned and was explicit about xray results and treatment. Her office ev en called down to xray to see what was taking so long.
April 2017
Dr. Vira has been my primary care physician for a number of years; she is kind and compassionate, listens and makes clinical recommendations in a very supportive way. She is excellent.
March 2017
I felt like Dr. Vira had one foot in the door for my exam with the other out the door waiting to leave. She showed very little interest in anything I had to say. I mentioned a lingering effects since my accident and she didn´t even ask what accident and completely went on to the next question. I felt she was not interested in me as a person at all. I had my mammogram sent to her so it should have been on the chart so she should have know that had been done but she did not. Therefore, I don´t feel like she came in the room knowing my history. I am changing providers.
March 2017
Dr. Vira is the best!
February 2017
Dr. Vira spent less time with me than the nursing assistant; she seemed rushed and rather disinterested in my concerns, even though I had recently begun taking a new medication and was experiencing some difficult symptoms. That said, Dr. Vira was otherwise very professional & followed up promptly; on my lab work.
February 2017
Dr. Vira always makes me feel important, and appreciative of my input....it is a collaboration.
February 2017
Have been with Dr. Vira for many years and she is always great!
February 2017
I love Dr. Vira.
February 2017
Dr. Vira is very kind and caring. She always listens to me, discusses my concerns with me, and makes excellent recommendations for follow up if needed.
January 2017
Dr Vira is such a wonderful physician. I am so happy to have found her. She has great advice, for example, I want to reduce my depression medication, she had great advice to hold off until the summer time when the sun is out. I would have never thought about that.
January 2017
She apparently didn´t read my file, as she didn´t know I had asthma (my main issue), but it wasn´t critical in this instance. It was just apparently during our conversation based on what she asked me and told me.
January 2017
As I said I love Dr. Vira and VM Issaquah. I am 63 and being her patient and using VM Issaquah is the best I have ever had for my primary care physician.
January 2017
I already recommended her to my sister.
January 2017
I just switched to Dr. Vera. She is so nice and explains everything you ask. She is direct and I really like that.
