Patient Comments (5)

When I visit with Dr. Lirette rather than the nurse practioner I feel as though I am being rushed out of the door so he can get to next patient. When I attempt to express any kind of concern I feel as though I am dismissed by him. I feel like I don’t have any opportunity to ask any of the questions...more

I cannot sing his praises enough. So warm and knowledgeable. An amazing human being as well as excellent doctor. His staff is just as amazing and warm. Can’t imagine having my baby with any other doctor or group of professionals attending to me.

He is amazing, he is a calming factor. I had surgery with him as my doctor from a referral from another friend who also had used Dr. Lirette, the best, even my husband loved him! Our grown daughters now use him also.

He delivered both of my children. He's cautious, thorough and very personable. I moved out of state and hadn't been in years, I came back and it felt like coming home. So warm and welcoming. ??????
