Extraordinary person and professional. Works seamlessly with Lauren a very well prepared Physician's Assistant. I never had a better work up as a new patient. She set up a clear treatment plan and spent the time to get me to understand what she was recommending. Most of all, she sees you as a whole. Not just a particular problem you came to see her about. I feel that Dr. Sonia and Lauren are dedicated to me! What a find!

I am so glad she moved. I would have followed her anywhere. She is the best! The new office is ground floor and there are no elevators. The staff is also wonderful. Highly recommend Dr. K.

Very well coordinated with her excelent Nurse Practitioners, Dr. Sonia is very thorough and attentive. I continue to be treated with her. Up to now the wait is worth it, but I hope her move to Coral Springs from her Margate location will improve wait times.

They have a sign which says: Neurology Institute? Some kind of joke. 1-I was moved 3 times for them to find a working BP monitor 2- So -called memory test was administered by young lady who had a younger translater with her. 3- P.A. asked pertinent questions 4- Dr. came in , asked P.A.for info instead of looking at me. Yes , some kind of joke. Never again Y

Made several visits without benefit from any medications she prescribed . One caused side effects , but she said you must continue . The second medication for backache was not indicated for pack pain, it could only be applied on knees, hands and wrists. Plus waiting is from 30-60 minutes most days. The exam consists of a P.A. coming first, who fills up the computer, then Dr comes in for a minute or two, barely touches you with her gloves on. I would not recommend anyone to her care .

Went to see Dr Kalirao today at the new Office for my low back issues. She treated me promptly, with the greatest level of professionalism and her front staff was so pleasant and all smiles. Her new office is beautiful and I was very comfortable. Highly, highly recommend. -Alfonso
