Great Doctor. Very caring for her staff and patients. Very thorough and takes her time with the patients.
in Pittsburgh, pA |
I have already done so, with one major caveat. Dr. Varma is extremely thorough and insightful and really cares for her patients, but likes to spend time with them and always runs late as a result. So, all of her regular patients learn to call ahead of time before they leave for the appointment to find out how far behind she is running. She really should just schedule more time with each patient, even though that would mean longer to wait before getting an appointment, but....

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 requests. PHG office phone staff is the rudest I have EVER encountered = blame YOU for their scheduling mistakes, accuse you of lying & offer NO apology. Dr is good, but unorganized. NOT worth the aggravation
in Bridgeville, PA |
Wait time was almost 2 hours. She prescribed several brand name meds(that I can't afford and for which I wasn't there) and said very little about my thyroid nodules. Gave me a bunch of samples and a referral for a biopsy and ordered a sleuth of blood tests for diabetes etc. I have a PCP for my diabetes and other things and just wanted to know if a biopsy was needed. Also saw 3 pharma reps come and go and felt costly medications being pushed on me. I will never go back!
The wait was over 4 hrs.and I was told that is normal. I only saw dr for 20 min out of that time. She would ask me questions but then answer them for me. And would talk over me if I was speaking

Does not listen to what the patient is saying. She doesn't believe the patient. Left her for primary care doctor who treated thyroid issue and I've lost 102 pounds. My primary listened and believed what I said.
