Absolutely horrible!!! They sell you tests they don't need and neglect to tell you insurance isn't going to cover them. When you call you only get the answering service and no one bothers to call you back. She does not show up for appointments - at least she didn't bother to show up for 2 of mine. Stay away. There are far better doctors out there. I'm so glad my GP moved and to be out of her office because if she hadn't I'd be looking for a new GP. Never going back there!

Stay away. They try to milk you from every possible angle passing you from one of their doctor friends to the next. I received charges for tests never taken and waited for 6 weeks with their billing department with no response. The office is creepy and looks like something out of a Dracula movie. They sell their multi level programs in the office. Also tacky. Always a long long wait for every visit.

Bad experience. Dr Varughese is very friendly, but I never waited less than two hours for an appointment.The last time I waited almost four hours. I left her practice after that. In addition, the office never returns a call, except for a very nice lady in the "business" office that picked up occasionally. Disorganized and inefficient. I just received my bill, which does not reflect the payment I made on July 19, in person, because I feared sending a check and getting no credit. Very disappointed
