*Dr. Vira is the best! That is why I now travel 4 hrs. to see her from my previous 25 min. drive for my visit.

My Doctor always listens to my concerns and sends me to another specialist if she feels it is necessary.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
I found her dismissal of a concern of mine rather abrupt. (no examination). Perhaps it was really not a serious matter and di not require looking into.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
i have recommended Dr. Vira to numerous people.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
It seems that Dr Vira is very busy, and I am hoping it is not the fault of overscheduling of Va Mason patients.

The Dr. introduced herself to me although i'd seen her before. It had been almost a year since I'd seen her but i'd still have expected her to know i'd seen her. It was definitely something I would do so I don't have any hard feelings, but someone else may feel differently.

  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
I have been seeing Dr. Vira for years and have been pleased with her attentiveness and no nonsense approach. She must have had an off day as I did not feel she was paying attention to me on this occasion.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Really would have liked to better understand the reasons for increasing my medications the last few months.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Love Dr Vira!!!!! Thank you for your expertise and empathy...
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Dr. Vira is an excellent well-informed physician. I am very comfortable consulting her and seeking her advice. I trust her to make intelligent and pragmatic decisions about my care.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
The doctor seemed very rushed.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
I always tell people I know what a wonderful Dr., Dr. Vira is. Since I have been going to her, I feel like I actually matter. She is amazing. She gets right to the issue and does it with great care.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr. Vira has provided excellent care for me for many years. She is very pleasant and upbeat, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable.

The DR also is focussed on completing her checklists online; stopped me from asking questions and said she would give me time after but was not interested in hearing or discussing issues. She even questions the DR diagnosis at ER days earlier even when I offered to bring up docs online portal (no patience or interest to discuss) She did not check my throat; I had swollen lymph nodes and had green flem bacteria infection; had to call back 2 days later for meds. I also inquired about menopause as she specializes in Women's health; I see her 1-2 year and was hoping for a thorough chat but felt DR had a routine she followed and was not interested in listening. I did get referrals for other areas I believed I need and for that I am thankful. I want to have a trusted relationship with her but she consistently has a way of completing VM online applications/details without connecting with the patient.

I did refer an individual to *Dr. Vira.
