Dr. Verma has changed my life. Last year I saw some quack that stopped my medication and I became suicidal. I decided to come back to Dr. Verma. He saw me twice and I went right back to my normal self. He is my Savior.

I went to Dr Verma for over a year. He is very nice. But..... he couldn't care less about your mental health. It's like a factory. In and out. I was a zombie the whole time I saw him . thank god I changed drs. I am a totally new person. Please beware
This patient was delinquent in paying her bills. This is in retaliation.

What a relief to finally be able to get compassionate, caring, understanding care from a doctor. Its been a very very long time that i felt i was able to speak to someone without being jugded. Many doctors look at mental health needs as some drug addicts seaking drugs. Someone finnaly understood that we just want to function normally and that our brains dont quite work exactly like the norm. I would highly recommend this office to anyone who would want to change there life for the better.

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.

Dr. Verma does not listen to the patient. He is not compassionate.
