Patient Comments (5)
in New York, NY |
Though consulting dermatologist in New Orleans and New York for serious problems with itching, mostly at night, I found little help. A few months ago I consulted Dr. Varghese. He prescribed a new pill, and a new salve. I was not expecting any miracles, but looking for whatever relief I could get. But the relief was, to me, quite miraculous. For the first time in many years, I sleep through the night and the itching is largely a thing of the past. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Varghese.

I was seen by Dr. Varghese several weeks ago. The office staff was efficient and pleasant. Wait time was minimal and the doctor assessed and addressed my medical concerns appropriately. He provided sufficient information about his diagnosis and treatment plan which allowed me to fully participate in my care and make an informed decision. He was not warm and fuzzy, nevertheless, he was professional, practical and efficient. I plan to return and would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Varghese is a well trained Cornell Dermatologist, which is to say that he egregiously violates patient privacy, by denying patients a private dermatological examination, without the indignity of having a third party present. This unethical behavior will be defended on the grounds that Cornell is a teaching hospital, but this argument is mired in hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy, as this practice represents a profound breach of trust, and causes the patient to be treated as a mere commodity.
in Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Varghese only spent about 5 minutes with me during our consultation. He never looked closely at my skin or touched my face at all. He was dismissive and seemed uninterested in helping me when I came in for a consultation about acne scars. I left feeling a bit sad and helpless. Even though the acne was hormonal, they considered this a cosmetic consultation and would not bill through my insurance so the appointment was also expensive.

Not being a physician, I can't evaluate Dr. Varghese's medical knowledge, but he seems to know what he's doing and his treatment of me thus far has kept me healthy. He stands out for having a wonderfully friendly open manner. It's genuinely a pleasure to be his patient. He explains things very clearly and is extremely friendly. I would put him forward as a model of how a doctor should interact with patients.
