I have been to 3 neurologist before I found Dr. Sonia Kalirao. The wait to see her was almost three months but it was worth it. She and the staff are so caring. She changed my wife's life. Gave us so many choices and gave us hope. My wife who has Parkinson,s has been suffering for long time. She is now in just few weeks. Able to walk. After injections now is able to swallow. She is also getting enrolled in a trial. I highly recommend her. God bless her.

Dr. Kalirao has been taking care of our family for a long time. She is the best. My mom who was at broward hospital. She came in the morning, explained to us what was going on. Such a difficult time for our family. She kept us updated. The staff answered so many of our phone calls. I and my family so thankful for her compassion and her time. There is truly no one like her!

I have an absolutely wonderful experience with Dr Sonia Kalirao on my last visit. She is a great listener and encourages patients to speak out their problems and pain in detail.Dr Sonia offered me no of ways to treat my problem and then prescribed me most suitable treatment to me.Her team is super efficient and responds for refill in basically the same day. Right from entering the clinic to exiting it COVID-19 protocol is observed at every step. Front desk and nursing staff are very cooperative and accommodating.I hundred per cent recommend this clinic

Approximately two years ago my mother sustained traumatic brain injury and I was referred to several neurologists for her treatment. My experience with these was negative as they failed to properly diagnose the extent of injury and then I was advised to consult Dr Sonia Kalirao whose treatment and diagnosis of my mother’s injury was amazing and perfect. With her treatment my mother almost revived and felt highly appreciative of Dr Sonia and her team.

Our family has been going to Dr. Kalirao for long time. She is a compassionate and a brilliant neurologist. My wife when diagnosed with Parkinson's was given so many new options by her. She is feeling the best in a long time, thanks to the doctor.

It was prompt and one call appointment. Dr Sonia is very knowledgable and professional. She performed tests upon me which she explained as nerve conduction study and she talked about neighbourhood, weather during test to distract me from uncomfortable procedures. The clinic is very clean and front desk staff are very cooperative. I highly recommend this doctor.

Went to see her. I was assigned another neurologist. He was OK, so I didn't mind. Don't try calling them. Some rude person answers the phone and says "can you please" then the music comes on. No one comes back to the line. Impossible to get to this office. I am on hold for more than 20 minutes this time. 3 previous calls this morning and on hold for over 10 minutes each time. I am done with this practice.

saw her on the recommendation of our cardiologist. Beautiful human being and a great doctor. Her bedside manners are impeccable. My mother who is a holocaust survivor and was with us was made so comfortable by her. The staff was great. I guess they had phone issues few weeks back but our experience was outstanding. Doctor was definitely worth the wait
