Patient reviews for Dr. John Pahira
This was my initial visit and I found Dr. Pahira to be thoughtful, concerned, and professional. The visit was not hurried and all of my questions were answered.
Dr. Pahira was wonderful, his resident Dr. Egan was also fabulous - they were thorough, kind and made me feel very comfortable. I am very pleased with the care I received and can't recommend them enough.
The doctor was very professional and knowledgeable.
Very professional. Very nice man.
Courteous and professional
By far the best doctor I have seen . Will definitely recommend him to only one needing a urologist. So glad I found him .
The doctor was professional and ordered diagnostic tests.
The staff was quick, attentive and I was out in and out in a half hour. Dr. was knowledgeable about my current and historical condition when he walked in-- asked relevant questions and went over directions for treatment making sure I knew what to do and when. I did not feel rushed and he made sure to answer all my questions.
Dr. Pahira was incredibly informative and patient in explaining the procedure and the future treatment options and worked with me on the timing of both. He heard and addressed my concerns and questions. I was seen on time and never felt as if the appointment was rushed. I am so very happy I found this practice!
I was very pleased with Dr. Pahira and his concern for my problems.
I was very impressed and he was very nice. I plan to send other family members to him.
Dr. Pahira was great! Made you feel like you were talking with a good friend as opposed to your doctor. I have only seen him once, but I can say I look forward to our next appointment.
Very professional atmosphere. Obviously a very busy medical office. Care was excellent. I initially was seen by a resident who is very well-versed in the care that I required. Excellent team medical experience.
Everyone was so professional and courteous. I was referred to Dr. Pahira from my nephrologist. It was obvious he looked over all the information sent to him before meeting with me. He explained everything well and I felt that I would receive good care.
Efficient office both during the appointment and at the follow-up, Dr. Pahira and his resident listened carefully to my symptoms and made some helpful suggestions. They helped me arrange for further testing as well.
Dr. Pahira was very professional, very kind and understanding and very clear. He took his time examining all the information before giving us his opinion.
Awesome. He was very attentive and informative.
It was exactly what I needed. Dr Pahira was highly recommended by a respected colleague. The office was friendly and very efficient. Everybody was very professional. My questions were answered and appropriate follow-up was arranged.
I was extremely grateful for Dr. Pahira's care, examination and consultation advice. I highly recommend Dr. Pahira to every person who may seek urology examination, consultations or treatment.
Unfortunately he couldn't help me, but he gave me good advice. I was disappointed as I would have liked to proceed with him, even though getting to his office in D.C. And returning to my home in VA required many agonizing hours sitting in traffic.
Seemed knowledgeable. Thorough.
Dr. Pahira is excellent. He makes you feel very comfortable, explains everything clearly and thoroughly. You can tell he cares about the patients he treats. I have no reservation about highly recommending him to anyone who needs a urologist. I also highly recommend Georgetown Hospital. When I need a specialist, it is the first place I turn to.
