Good experience

I've had a couple of appts. with Dr. Virley so far. The first visit was nothing special, very average. However the last visit I had a physical, and I felt she went above and beyond. She spent a lot of time with me, discussed my health in detail, and made suggestions and recommendations. I felt like I was in good hands.

Great general practitioner, very trustworthy

I have been a patient of Dr. Virley's for many years and find her to be caring, candid and efficient. I am particular about my health care and she takes a few minutes to discuss any problems or diagnosis which I appreciate. It is easy to ask questions and she makes sure I understand what I need to do for myself.

DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE, OFFICE, DOCTOR VIRLEY OR ANY OTHER REFERRAL RELATED TO THIS OFFICE!!!! I cannot say this in strong enough terms. We, as a family with an older person that has been relegated to this lazy, incompetent and most of all, uncaring doctor, have never been subjected to such Stalinist tactics. ALL of the staff must have been trained by this Machiavellian doctor in the most efficient ways to alienate, insult, berate, discourage and finally oppose the very healthcare need of the patient. We are regularly subjected 9by that I mean every time), to surely, uncooperative, angry improperly trained staff that somehow manages to make their incompetence YOUR FAULT! You are made to feel that the very reason you came to the DOCTOR, was to, in some fashion, a direct insult to them personally, and that goes for Dr Virley as well. Tired, lazy, uncaring, rushed, unkempt, unclean, rude, antagonistic, completely deaf to the concerns of the patient and their family sums up my review of Dr. Virley and her staff. If you think this is unusual, read the reviews of others on this site!!!!!!!!

Best MD I ever had

Dr. Virley IS compassionate but does not suffer fools or noncompliant patients. She takes the time to research medications before prescribing them, and she continues beyond required levels of continuing education. While the staff can be difficult, Dr Virley didn't hire them. She herself is easy to talk to and genuinely cares about her patients. I would recommend her to anyone I cared about, as I found her to be extremely competent.
