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)
