Very disappointed please don't go to see him. Don't make mistake to see him. Office staffs (Amanda, Amy, Jessica one guy)is worse than doctor.
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.

He is a caring Doctor. He listens and he speaks to you, not at you. Explains everything. He is not a pill pusher. At times, he is very funny
in Woodside, NY |
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.

Dr varma is a very very good doctor
in Queens Village, NY |
This is an assembly line doctor. He has a ton of patients that go in and out very quickly. He barely makes eye contact with you and literally spends one minute in the room with you while looking in the computer screen. He does not care about your previous conditions, medications or if you have test results with you he won't even go over them even if they show a diagnosis. If you need a really caring physician that will spend time on your case and treat you like a human being, go somewhere else.
in Flushing, NY |

in Astoria NY |
He is a very good doctor. He Is patient and very understanding and cares about your progress.
in Astoria, NY |
Waited over an hour for my appointment, when I did meet with him he kept leaving the room and seemed distracted. The office is very unorganized and does not get back to you. I had to call them 4x and both offices to finally get them to call in my authorization. If you are in pain and need assistance I would find a different doctor where you don't have to wait two weeks for them to call in an approval. Also the office was crowded with people waiting to be seen and smelled like a vet's office.
