Patient Comments (1)
in Sulphur,, LA |
I began seeing Dr. Varghese in 2007 after I found I only had one functioning kidney and it only functioned 28%. Dr. Varghese reviewed my medications and changed and adjusted them. My function went up to 40% and has remained in that range since. He is thorough and knowledgeable and I am very thankful I found him. His staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I never have problems with rescheduling when needed.
