Best doctor you can find. His practice has changed so much. If you can get to see him, he is the best doctor in Palm Beach County. Love Dr lira, I feel like I'm going to a hometown doctor when I go there. But I've been going for over 25 years to the same office. Thank you Dr lira for who you are, the best family doctor around. and I mean it!
