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.
