Care Philosophy

I work with every patient as if they are my family member, and I treat them the way I would treat my own family. Every patient is unique, and I believe the best care plans are tailored combinations of techniques that may include: interventional treatment, medication management, physical therapy, aqua therapy, behavioral therapies, and alternative therapies including acupuncture. Improving the quality of life for my patients is what inspires me. I'm very focused on alleviating their pain and also improving their mental and emotional health. Suffering from regular pain can be incredibly stressful.Read more

Dr.Varma is extremely uncompassionate towards her patients and very unethical. American Spine saw me for twenty two months, then Dr. Varma ask me for medical to support my condition, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, which she list as her specialty, I ask her to check the temperature of her extremities, she refused. I find very concerning that a Pain Management Center prescribes medication to patients they claim they have no medical on.Dr. Sherlekar diagnosed my condition, C. R. P. S. Over 10 year
