I have Hashimoto's (autoimmune hypothyroidism) and have been coming to Dr. Varanasi since he took over my previous endocrinologist's practice a number of years ago. I have found him to be very thorough and he helped with an issue that had been ongoing prior to his taking over the practice. Tests had not shown a parathyroid issue - but this turned out to be the issue and I ended up requiring parathyroid surgery.

Had an excellent experience with Dr Varanasi!! I was diagnosed with pituitary problems and was seen as the Mayo Clinic and couldn't get my numbers right!! I am finally on the correct dose of hydrocortisone which seems to be working!! Very thankful

I have brittle diabetes for several years and have had several endocrinologists in the past years. Recently I have been seeing Dr Varanasi and he has been tremendously helpful in bringing my sugars under control. He is uptodate with the latest studies and has been spot on with his recommendations! Will recommend him highly.

I have Hashimoto's (autoimmune hypothyroidism). Dr. Varanasi provided no additional information (like once you have one autoimmune disease, you are at a much higher risk of developing another). He spent 5 minutes with me, was dismissive of the fact that I was still having a lot of symptoms (I don't convert T4 to T3) since my lab results showed I was within "normal range." People are more than lab results!

Taking 3-minute examination, do you think is real doctor? and not listen patience is absurd.
I have recently been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism Graves' disease! Dr Varanasi was recommended to me by a friend!! I have been seeing him for the last 6 months and have had excellent control of my symptoms!! Dr Varanasi was extremely knowledgeable in this area and was able to answer all my questions, I would highly recommend him
