Dr. Varma is very stern but knows what he is talking about, never rushes my appointment, listens which is most important, Unlike other doctors he cares. My two girls at the front desk Karina & Megan are awesome! You will adore the two of them. I definitely recommend Dr. Varma and his office.

I've known Dr. Varma for a decade now and have referred numerous patients to him. All of which were satisfied with his services. Today I found the need for his services myself. I strained my low back working on patient. I called his office and they said they would get me in ASAP. Within two hours I am pain free. "Thank You DOC!" The professional services provided were performed beyond my expectations and the results even better. I returned to my office pain free and able to see my patients.

I am currently under the care of this wonderful doctor who is extremely thorough with caring for his patients. I wish I had come across Dr. Varma years ago! I am 75 years old with many issues caused by a renoun doctor. Trust me when I tell you being a patient of this excellent doctor will not be a disappointment. Be honest with Dr. Varma and he’ll be honest with you. Don’t waste time with another pain management physician! Be reassured that you will love Mary the doctors front desk staff.
