      A bit of a cold fish. Does not seem to enjoy talking to patients--more like he endures it. I have BPH and did not have good results with the classic BPH medications. When he learned those meds weren't right for me, he didn't seem interested in pursuing the problem. Later I found out the FDA had approved Cialis for BPH, but Pahira never told me about it, even though it could have helped me. The whole experience of seeing him was a bit disappointing. He didn't provide much guidance or compassion.

      Dr. Pahira had referred to see immoral surgeon Dr. Kevin McGeagh, Since after surgery, I have been suffering in great pain for four years. Dr. Pahira must be responsible for his referrals, Shame to Dr. John Pahira. Albert

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
