1st time I was here it took 3 hours I was told that wasn't the norm and now I'm here for 2nd visit was told my 9am appt was the first of day arriver here 845 and 9 people waiting. They tell me he's always late and there's always a wait. Receptionist tells me he's not even here yet it's 920 and she assures me that my wait won't be long. I will wait briefly to see if I get in to see him or if I need to find another doctor. Had MRI last week I called office for him to review results no call back

North Bellmore – Feb 13, 2019
He is very busy. Always busy to cover as much patients as he can. Therefore, he does not have time to answer questions of his patients. Actually, he don’t even care to answer. You ask him a question and will leave your cabin with half answer because other patients are waiting for him in other cabins. That’s very rude, unfair and could be dangerous . I had a worst experience in Jericho location. Appointment time 10.30 took me in after 1.30pm. 210 minutes (three and half hour) of waiting.

Dr Varma has been a fabulous pain management Doctor. Unlike many of the other Dr's I have seen, he takes the time to listen to me and is actually familiar with my injuries. When I have had problems filling meds, his office has worked with my insurance and pharmacy to rectify situation. He also treats my migraines, so his cross degree in neurology is extremely helpful. I highly recommend him for pain management as well neurological needs.

Dr. Varma has been treating me for a neurological chronic pain condition for almost two years. He is knowledgable, caring and professional. He discusses all options of treatment with me and answers all my questions. He takes the time to get to know his patients. I would recommend Dr. Varma to anyone with a neurological concern and have been very happy with the treatment I have been receiving.

I had encountered terrible Dr.'s. in the past. I was very sceptical in searching for a new Dr. However, after looking for a new pain management Dr., Dr. Varma and his staff were very pleasant to deal with in their office. Dr. Varma took the time to explain my options before treating me. He made sure that I was very comfortable in the process. This is exactly what I needed. I wanted to feel comfortable . I felt like I made the right decision w/ dr. Verma :) .

Dr. Varma is one of the best doctors that I have ran across in my life. He is truly a god send. When I run across people with server pain and ready to give up, the first thing I do is to tell them about Dr. Varma. I let them know that he is the type of doctor who listens to his patients. Not too many doctors these days do that. I have been with Dr. Varma for many years and he has always helped me through my painful times. And for that I'm so grateful. Thank you so much.
