Dr. Varma spends all of our appointment time reviewing labwork. She repeats the same information at every session. She has ridiculously long wait times that can be hours after your appointment. Her office staff are standoffish and unfriendly.

Wait time=2hrs+. Uniontown staff is polite, but make excuses for the Dr's tardiness. Waiting room is a non-climate controlled foyer! Appointments are scheduled in office but not always put in the system, resulting in a closed office when you arrive. Unable to provide patient records after 2...Read More
