Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been going to Dr. Varghese for 20 years. He immediately diagnosed and fully removed my basal cell cancer after another dermatologist told me that there was no cancer there. Over the years, he has also removed several benign lesions at my request. None of them have left a lasting scar. I trust him.

When I called to make the appointment, they told me that my appt was with dr George Varghese; dr Mathews son. His office is on the Upper West Side, unlike hi father on the east side. So I get to the appointment and they tell me I need to leave so I quickly get back in the car, across town. I’m finally seen by the dr, I was appalled! His accent was so heavy I could barely understand him. He had a terrible attitude. Didn’t listen to any of my symptoms but would prescribe any meds! (Even unrelated)
