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 Iknew what to do and when. I did not feel rushed and he made sure to answer all my questions.

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.

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.
