I have been going to see dr. kirali for long enough now that I feel like I have a rapport and history. it's nice.

July 21, 2014

very good

July 17, 2014

Provider is knowledgeable, well-respected.

July 14, 2014

DR. KIRALY IS AWESOME!

July 07, 2014

I love my physician and the staff. Always well taken care of.

June 30, 2014

Dr. Kirally does an efficient, excellent, and friendly evaluation of patient and medications. I recommend that you clone her.

June 13, 2014

Dr. Fox is top notch. He is very easy to talk to and he explains things very thoroughly. I am very pleased he is my physician and I have a lot of confidence in him.

June 13, 2014

My Doctor always goes "the extra mile" for me in regard to my health care.

June 10, 2014

I am a healthy, active, early 50's male who came in for a routine check-up. Dr. Kiraly took me through the whole examination in short order but did not allow herself to be lulled into inattentiveness. Near the end of our session, she noticed a solid mass on the right side of my thyroid gland. I would have never noticed it. I am currently getting further assessments. Whatever it turns out to be, hopefully nothing, I am extremely impressed with the detective work and I want to thank Dr. Kiraly for doing her job so well. I'm a VERY picky patient - she's the best I've seen, by leaps and bounds.

June 05, 2014

Dr. Kiraly was incredible. She was clear with her explanations about the procedure, interested in my comfort throughout the procedure, and gave me confidence in her skills. I have had this procedure done in the past, and this experience was infinitely better - I am sure it is due to the skill and expertise of Dr. Kiraly.

May 25, 2014

Dr. Kiraly is always the best. She knows her medicine and is an expert at working with people.

May 18, 2014

dr. Kiraly and her staff always great.

May 14, 2014

Dr. Kirally is the best!!! She takes the time to listen to you and addresses all your issues.

May 07, 2014

Dr Kiraly is always friendly and caring. She makes you feel like she remembers your previous visits and is genuinely concerned about your progress. The PA's are always very nice and the same can be said of them.

April 27, 2014

Mental health. Much discussion on where to go from here. Exactly what I needed for the visit.

April 18, 2014

Excellent Doctor....WHOM I TRUST.A BIG DEAL TO ME!

April 13, 2014

been my Dr for almost 15 years -

March 29, 2014

though the appointment was running late, dr Kiraly never seems rushed or in a hurry to get on to the next person. she is so attentive, answers questions, and provides rationale like AAP recommendations/guidelines when prescribing treatment.

March 27, 2014

I do not like the fact that I cannot discuss my test results in person with my provide only through email. I am expected to print out the results and determine if there are any concerns.

March 08, 2014

Dr. Kiraly was highly recommended to me and she definitely met if not exceeded my expectations. I expected to feel rushed knowing this clinic sees so many patients in a day, however, she made sure we covered all of my concerns and even brought up some I hadn't mentioned!

February 22, 2014

thorough, careful, excellent

February 13, 2014

Dr. Kirely is exceptional in all areas with an open mind and I feel no qualms regarding imparting any information to her that as a Care Provided she should be privy to. which is hardly the case many of my past experiences with other "providers". She assess' the patience as an individual not just another bothersome whiner and responds accordingly with proper treatment and patient goals.

February 10, 2014

Dr. Kiraly is simply awesome. I recommend her all of the time. She has the best "bed side" manner that i have ever experienced. Totally puts me at ease and makes me feel like she understands what i am telling her.

February 10, 2014

Seemed very rushed and unable to listen to all my health issues. Forced to make another appointment to have other health issues addressed.

February 08, 2014

Dr Kiraly is the epitome of what a doctor should be.

January 16, 2014

Always a pleasure to visit my doctor. I always receive great care and attention.

January 16, 2014

Dr. Kiraly is the best of the best. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. There are few providers like her. Thank you Dr. Kiraly.

January 16, 2014

She never seems rushed although I'm sure I took up too much of her time for the problems I needed addressed

January 09, 2014

Dr. Kiraly is always upbeat, attentive, and professional. I enjoy her as a person as well as a physician.

January 08, 2014

I really appreciated the time that Dr. Kiraly and her staff took to really listen to my health history, address my concerns, share valuable information, and treat me with care.

January 02, 2014

We had a great experience here, other than shots and that's no fun. But the nurse sympathized with us, it's sad to see them get shots but it's better than the altenitive

January 02, 2014

Doctor, PA and nurse are all kind and serve sincerely

December 19, 2013

All 5's. Great 5 star treatment from the clinic and staff.

December 16, 2013

Am recomeending Dr. Kiraly to others

December 14, 2013

He spent extra time with my daughter to make sure she got a toy and felt a positive experience with the doctor's office.

December 12, 2013

I would strongly recommend the Unversity Health Care!!

December 09, 2013

Dr. Kiraly is wonderful

December 07, 2013

I have recommended Dr Kiraly to many people she's great

December 02, 2013

Doctor Kiraly is personable, competent and merits my confidence.

November 29, 2013

Dr Coriz is doing a great job of helping me figure out my health issues.

November 18, 2013

I would absolutely recommend them to any one who I know that needed to have the procedure that I had done!

November 18, 2013

I really appreciate how Dr. Kiraly made the time to listen and fully understand my issues. Her responses were thoughtful and kind and it made me feel comfortable. I will do my best to follow her treatment suggestions. Thank you very much.

November 08, 2013

Thank you!

November 04, 2013

I've been seen by Dr Kiraly the first week of her practice. That's been about 12 or 13 years.

November 04, 2013

Kiraly is the bomb-digity. In our family, we feel like she is the small town doctor, who knows our names, knows our history, and cares about our health. When talking about diagnoses, she always mentions some new study she has read, suggesting she obviously stays on top of her skill. She is amazing! Make her CEO of all things doctorly!

October 28, 2013

I was so happy that Dr Kiraly was able to address my daughter's fever/ sore throat during my scheduled annual physical. The staff was prompt getting her checked in and Dr Kiraly was thorough with us individually and looking at our family wellness as a whole. My daughter did in fact have a strep infection and was able to get on antibiotics that night. I LOVE family medicine!

October 17, 2013

She was very proficient at administering the vaccination.

October 05, 2013

Again, with Dr. Kiraly I never felt rushed. I could tell the clinic was very busy that day but never felt that I needed to cut anything short because of that. When she needed to leave the room she was very clear with me the time frame and offered me the option to say that I wanted her stay and finish with me first.

October 02, 2013

Dr. Kiraly is the perfect combination of intelligence, experience and kindness.

October 02, 2013

Dr. Kiraly is wonderful. I have been seeing her for years. It is so nice to have a doctor who knows me beyond what is written in my chart- as a human being with a real life. It makes my life easier to know that she knows my medical and relevant personal history and understands how what I do day to day impacts my health. Having that sort of shorthand with my doctor allows us to spend our time in clinic talking about the things that really matter. With anyone else I would have to waste time explaining my normal so they could understand why this visit is different. Dr. Kiraly and I can use that time more productively because she already knows my normal and if something is different she knows why/how it is different.

October 01, 2013

always very helpful and good follow-up

October 01, 2013

I hesitate to recommend a Dr. to anyone, because my experience and communication with my Dr. is my own and another person may not have that. I am not quiet about my confidence in my Dr.

September 10, 2013

I love Dr Kiraly

September 10, 2013

Dr. Kiraly provided me the time I needed to make sure all of my concerns were met even though she was running behind. I really appreciated that.

September 09, 2013

Although I have minimal current health issues, Dr. Kiraly spent a good amount of time reviewing my past medical history to ensure that I receive follow up for some past conditions. As a RN, I truly appreciate that Dr. Kiraly speaks to me at my level of health literacy, and involves me actively in healthcare decisions.

September 03, 2013

I came in with a condition that I have had in the past. I asked for the remedy that has worked in the past. The doctor said I needed to wait for a week to see if it would improve on it's own. It did not. So I had to suffer for a week before getting the medicine that I needed to begin with.

August 21, 2013

I seem to be asking the same questions over and over and not getting any answers, or getting all the way home and realizing my questions still have not been answered. They seem to get you in and out of there very quickly. Always very nice, but I always go home just as confused as when I got there.

August 19, 2013

Although I have never heard from the physician about my lab results.

August 07, 2013

I recommened this facility to all my friends

August 02, 2013

dr Kiraly is the best doctor I've ever had

July 21, 2013

Health concerns were discussed and followup measures to be taken.

July 09, 2013

If I didn't already have a PCP who was not in the clinic on the day I called, I would choose the doctor who was able to see me. Dr. Kiraly was excellent in the professional way she answered all my questions and in taking time to consider both a range of causes, therapies, and prognoses.

July 05, 2013

10.--My experience is very good but I don't tell anyone I know "You should to see MY Doctor, she is the only one and you must see her" I have had that backfire, not because of my Dr. but my friends expectations. no more

July 03, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Kiraly to several people. She never rushes in our appointments and I always leave feeling like I received excellent medical care.

June 17, 2013

Dr. Kiraly is awesome - always takes her time and explains any concerns or thoughts she has.

May 13, 2013

Not my regular doctor since I came in on very short notice. She was excellent!

April 22, 2013

Excellent office visit. One of my best medical experiences.

April 12, 2013

MY Doctor is the BEST !!!! She listens to all of my worries....

April 08, 2013

I hesitate recommending any caregiver because my experiences with my care giver will be as different as any personalities are different. I feel like my own care givers listen and want to help me.

April 01, 2013

I was highly impressed with the doctor and felt she was the perfect combination of personable and professional. She was extremely considerate and efficient.

March 29, 2013

Dr. Kiraly is the best of the best. She is caring, compassionate, and informative. I always feel that she is on top of my health care needs and very thorough. I frequently recommend Dr. Kiraly to others looking for a quality care provider. In fact, my husband now goes to her and is very pleased with his care.

March 19, 2013

Dr. Kiraly should be commended for the time and patience she spends with her patients.

March 14, 2013

Dr. Kiraly took ample time to go through concerns and look at options to address each one.

March 07, 2013

The doctor and the PA are knowledgeable and thorough in their diagnosis, advise and treatment.

March 05, 2013

Dr. Kiraly is a great doctor, she listens to my concerns and answers all my questions.

March 01, 2013

Dr. Kiraly and her support staff provided the best preventative and routine medical care I have received in my 50 years on the planet. I called my companion as soon as I left the office and told her to switch her primary care physician to Dr. Kiraly. She is an amazing physician - I came on the recommendation of a friend and I now know exactly why she pushed me to choose Bernadette. Regarding item 7), I have a strong science background. I appreciated and was impressed by her ability to pitch our conversation at a level that tapped into my knowledge base. I really liked her style, start to finish.

March 01, 2013

WONDERFUL!!! Best experience I've had in a while with a doctor!

February 12, 2013

Dr. Kiraly is very thorough and caring.

January 31, 2013

Dr. Kiraly was wonderful in explaining that I had the Flu and what could be done to mitigate it.

January 28, 2013

Dr. Kiraly was fantastic! Very thorough and kind. She made me feel very comfortable.

January 28, 2013

Dr. Kiraly was less attentive than she usually is. She seemed rushed. What I thought was a fairly serious health problem, she said was minor and didn't seem to understand how much it bothered me. She isn't usually like that, so I think it was just a fluke, but still.

January 21, 2013

A good visit. Very pleased with Dr. Kiraly and her staff.

January 21, 2013

It was great to have all the medical people in the room . You all were nice as nice can be . You all took good care of me !!!!!!!!!

November 05, 2012

I have alot of confidence in Dr. Kirally and how thourough she is. A great Primary Care physician

October 31, 2012

I'm 58 years old, have lived in 5 states and this clinic and it's staff is the best I've ever encountered. Thank you for their great service

October 30, 2012

I hesitate to influence anyone else on their choice of Doctor only because personalities don't always mesh as well as mine has with Dr. Kirally. Even though my daughter or daughter-in-law are with me she talks to me. She also welcomes my girls views.

October 22, 2012

Dr Kiraly has provided me with excellent care.

October 01, 2012

Dr. Keraly thoroughly addressed my health concerns and followed up with her observations/advice.

October 01, 2012

All good!

September 24, 2012

We have developed a good relationship with Dr. Kiraly and that continued with this visit. It is reassuring and valuable to us to be able to stay with a physician over a period of several years.

The Dr. wasn't sure what caused my injury but did everything she could to find out.

September 10, 2012

August 08, 2012

Dr Kiraly was so sweet with my daughter and treated us like a family unit. She is everything a family practice doctor should be!

August 02, 2012

It can be difficult when a doctor does not know what is wrong. It makes me happy when a doctor will admit that they do not know and will do whatever they can do to work to find the answer.

July 30, 2012

I have already recommended Dr. Kiraly to some of my friends and/or colleagues.

July 27, 2012

July 12, 2012

Wow! Dr. Kiraly is fantastic! As a new patient, one always has a little apprehension when changing providers, but Dr. Kiraly erased any apprehension I had within the first 30 seconds of our interaction. She took the time to get to know me, and become acqu

She always seems to have time to listen and answer any questions I have.
