I would give Dr. Pahira ZERO star. He referred me to see unethical surgeon named Dr. McGeagh he advised me to have surgery but he informed only pro but not risks. I have suffered alot of pain after surgery. Dr. Pahira never condemn his referred surgery and continue to charge me for the follow up. Every follow up visit, I was paying Dr. McGeagh's mistakes. Dr. Pahira is money making doctor who has conscience on his patient. He must be responsible for his referral doctor. Shame 2 Dr. Pahira

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.
