I have been seeing Dr Vira for many years. She never appears rushed, always listens and responds to my questions and concerns and is always caring. I also appreciate her forwarding me results of the lab work (same day!) and her timely renewal of my prescriptions. she also responds promptly to any emails I send her. I really appreciate her! I feel like I'm in good hands!!

I have been a Virginia Mason client for over 50 years and Dr Vira is one of the best I have had - she is a good listener, competent, and makes you feel relaxed and never seems to rush me as a client.

Dr. Vira has been my PCP for about four years. In that four years, she has helped me through a 3-year bout with PMR as well managing my depression/anxiety which was highly exacerbated by the lengthy PMR. When Dr. Vira walks into the exam room, she is present and truly listens. I have never once felt like a number to her. She is an amazing doctor with an authentic, caring bed-side manner. I consider her being my PCP a blessing. She truly is the best!

Very short visit; seemed rushed
  Overall Patient Rating - November 2019
I have been seeing Dr. Vira for several years and I don't feel like she knows me or cares to get to know me. I'm a relatively healthy adult but would like to learn more about preventative care. I don't feel like she truly listens to other concerns. I will keep coming back to VM because the ease of scheduling and the ease of getting my annual mammogram and lab tests. I'm not sure I want to keep coming to Dr. Vira if I had an actual health problem. thank you for allowing me to share my concerns.
