I saw Dr Lira many years ago as the result of a car accident which left me with a serious concussion. Dr Lira was compassionate, spent a good deal of time with me and got me back 100%. I can't imagine her yelling at anyone because she has a very laid back personality. Sometimes people just don't mesh so perhaps that's what happened. All I can report is an excellent experience.

Dr. Lira is the only neurologist that I have seen who has asked the most comprehensive questions regarding my background with migraines. She has worked with me on a treatment plan that is working and consistently explains the pros and cons of my diet and medications. She is very up to date on the side effects of medications & how it affects my vitamins & birth control pills & is very encouraging & matter of fact. I appreciate her honesty & straight forward approach. Very pleased!
She was incredibly rude and pushy. She made me feel like my issues weren't a big concern and when I told her ever other dr j have met with up to this point has a difference of option, she brought out medicinal books to try and prove them wrong. She also never filled an Rx she prescribed and yelled at me for not taking it. Later realized it was her fault for sending t to the wrong place and blamed her secretaries.I am cancelling my further appointments w her. Would never recommend her to anyone.
