Patient Comments (5)
Austin, TX |
Her office staff is the rudest I have ever experienced. They just told me I was the rude one and hung up on me. Dr. Varga does NOT have good bedside manners whatsoever. She and her staff are rude and I cannot believe she is in a field with patients with Parkinson's Disease that deserve a kind and loving Dr. She is not that for certain. She requested certain testing on me and has had the results for over 10 days and I have not heard a word back. She told me I should go somewhere else. I will

I also agree with the other reviewers about the unprofessional and rude behavior of this doctor. I tried to explain something in a normal calming voice and was shocked to her reaction. Not only did she yelled at me and raised her voice and interrupted me NUMEROUS times, she threw her hands in the air and rolled her eyes. Then she took a phone call during our visit and had a personal conversation. UNBELIEVABLE. I will not return to this clinic, nor would I EVER recommend her to anyone.

I am still shocked about the way she treated me yesterday. When I started to tell her about seeing the Physical Therapist, I was interrupted and told to be quiet. She screamed at me at length for something the PT had done. I continued to tell her that I messaged her on Patient Portal, only to hear from her that she don't have time to read this. Never in my life have I experienced a medical professional act in this manner. Her behavior was unbelievable rude, verbally abusive, unprofessional.

Condesending, patronizing, verbally abusive. I have never witnessed a professional act in the way this woman acted. She yelled at my grandfather for misunderstanding her and standing up when he should have sat down. This is a man with Parkinson's who did not deserve to be berated in the manner that he was. I asked to be contacted by Dr. Varga upon leaving the clinic and never received a call or so much as an apology. Her assistant was even in shock from the abuse of Dr. Varga.

Dr Varga saved my life. Quite simply I had been diagnosed incorrectly with Parkinson's by Dr. Robert Izor in 1997. His treated me with heavy doses of both Parkinson's medication and other medication to alleviate the side effects of the medications. In 2012 due to severe decline in my health Dr. Izor recommended DBS surgery. After going thru the brain surgery I continued to decline. I sought a second opinion to stop the decline. I DID NOT HAVE PARKINSON'S. I WAS BEING POISONED.
