I have never had a doctor who I look forward to seeing except Dr.Verma. Not only does he listen to me, he hears me. He remembers little things that, later on, might contribute to something bigger that I may be dealing with. His staff is pleasant and accommodating. I have never once felt judged and I have never felt embarrassed to tell a person things that I would never tell another person. Dr. Verma has created a safe environment that would accommodate any range of growth and healing.

Dr. Anil Verma diagnosed my ADHD as an adult.. As a mom with 4 boys, 3 of which were also diagnosed with ADHD of which I believed they were behavorial issues... Since being diagnosed and being on medication my life has changed for the better. The differences are amazing and I now understand my children as well. That could not have happened without Dr Verma., it was because he paid attention to my behavior, listened to me, and saw my potential.

I have ADHD and Anxiety, I got in immediately for an appointment and my issues are now maintained with medication. He listened to what I was saying and I am very happy with him as my provider. He also worked with me and my insurance.

It's difficult to find a doctor that actually listens to you instead of "how are you? Great, here's medication." Dr. Verma actually listens to me. I've been seeing him for a couple months now and he's helped me tremendously in that amount of time. I highly recommend this doctor.

Dr. Verma does not listen to the patient. He is not compassionate.
SHAQ is not known to my patient. -- Anil Verma, MD
