I would recommend against using Dr Varma. Not because of Varma himself. He was fine interpersonally. His saff is absolutely a disaster. I had to wait for one month to finally get my prescription filled. They also booked me to the wrong office for an appointment after 6years of going to the same office. Dr bailey his partner also doesnt look at you when you go to the office. He just enters info into the computer. I was being over dosed for six years until another doctor saw the side effects.

Come later that afternoon, I call back, and finally got a hold of someone who took my insurance information, who said I would get a call in 2-3 days. Well, 10 days later, I finally received a call, but when the girl called, she kept asking me the same questions that were asked 10 days earlier. She was stumbling and ask
