When My Fathers original Cardiologist had given up. Dr. Varghese said we can fix this. My father died on April 6th. He was brought back. Even at 84 years old, Dr.V has given him another chance. I can not praise this man enough for what he has done.

He is the type doctor I am looking for he is willing to listen to your issues. He knows your history and those expensive test is not his gold standard. The last time I was in heart trouble he found it before damage and when other ignored my issues and they look to test which are far from 100 %. I proud he is Abilene Tx

Hi my name is Debra C. I only met Dr. Varghese today after my husband went in for a heart cath procedure that was explained previously as an in and out 30 minute thing that would determine the next step. Okay. After 2 hours in the procedure room Charles was done, there was more that needed immediate attention including 4 stents to open up the blockage from a previous heart attach that he didn't know had happened. Thank you Dr Vargheses.

Was referred from my Lung Specialist. He is very considerate and listens. He's running every test to see why I have pain. His staff was very friendly and informative. They seem to have great knowledge of what is being asked from them. Happy that I was referred to this office as Inwas told he's one of the best!
