Patient Reviews (2)
Poughkeepsie, NY |
I had two visits. I was very favorably impressed with the first, but less so with the second, because of a long waiting time and the fact that it was unnecessary. I had been notified by phone that my test results were favorable, and the second, expensive visit added nothing to that. I did appreciate greatly the phone call, but did not see the need for a follow-up appointment.

Dr Varanasi is professional, personable, detailed and direct. All the qualities our family respects and appreciates. When he needs to be serious he is serious, when there is time to chat he chats. I trust him with the lives of my brothers who are in his care. Dr. V will always give you an answer to your questions in a manner in which you can understand it. He is always astute, informed and professional. I trust him with my life.
