About the previous comment-"Dr. Varma -Anonymous in Old Bridge, NJ | 07/15/2016" It is the law that results cannot be given out to anyone in patient's absence and without patient's consent. Being persistent and demanding about it will not make staff diverge from the law.

Dr Varma is rude and unprofessional. My husband was diagnosed with lung cancer. We had a scheduled appointment at 2:30 pm. My husband was not feeling well for initial consultation and air quality outside was poor and he was unable to attend. The doctor made me wait over 1 1/2 hours in her office and then told her staff she refused to see me or answer my questions about his treatment based on biopsy results. Just had her staff hand me a prescription told me to get a Pet Scan and come back in week
