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.

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
