Verified Patient Reviews
I had an efficient and comprehensive annual physical with Dr. Varghese. She is a great listener and is very protective. I enjoy seeing her because she seems to take great notes and therefore remembers important details and simultaneously thinks big picture and weighs the details.
Very knowledgeable and thoughtful. Entire experience was great.
She was so caring and welcoming! A great first doctor visit here in NYC
Dr Varghese is excellent. She correctly identified my problem and her suggested fixes were spot on. I've been to her three times and every time is good experience.
Amazing staff at this location! Dr Varghese and her staff were extremely sweet and knowledgeable. Both assistants that I spoke with were friendly and explained everything they were doing. I came to this practice after a horrible experience elsewhere and I am so glad i did!
Dr. Varghese is an excellent doctor who takes the time to listen and discuss all of your concerns. She is very knowledgeable in her field.
Dr. Varghese was professional and addressed all of my concerns. Her staff was courteous and professional as well and provided all the help I needed.
Betsy was very professional and took the time to answer all of my questions. Really nice office and very nice staff.
Dr. Varghese is an excellent healthcare provider. I recently moved to NYC and have not had an annual physical in 5+ years. She took the time to listen to my medical history, answer all of my concerns, and fully explain her diagnosis. I also have a terrible phobia of needles and unfortunately needed blood drawn. The gentleman who took my blood was very sympathetic to my fears and provided a painless experience. I could not have asked for better care. The office staff was friendly and the space was clean. This will definitely be my primary care office moving forward!
She was amazing! She took a lot of time to sit down with me and made me feel incredibly supported. I was also seen before I even had a chance to fill out my paperwork! Super fast service!
Dr Varghese is the real deal when it comes to primary care physicians. She is professional, courteous and clearly cares a great deal for her patients. Despite the fact that her schedule is always fully booked, she never makes your appointment feel rushed or inconvenient.
I felt that I was in perfectly great professional hands. Dr. Varghese is patient and through - she asked appropriate questions about my health and gave me time to ask questions. She listens! Perfect calming manner and highly approachable...greatly important of a good doctor. I am so pleased and assured that I found her.
The doctor and assistants were all very kind and attentive. They actually called me 5 minutes before my appointment time! Dr Varghese treated me like a person, not just a patient. She was calm and detailed and took her time. I didn't feel rushed at all. Her assistants were each polite and non-judgemental and knowledgeable. Loved this location and the staff.
Dr V was wonderful and answered all my questions and concerns. Wait time was a little long, so plan for that! Still worth the wait.
She is just the most fabulous and professional doctor i have gotten the pleasure of having. She is a true delight. She makes sure all of your concerns are answered and she is the best.
Overall just a very good experience. Would highly recommend Dr. Varghese
Very personable. Overall good experience: quick, easy, painless annual exam.
She was very thorough in her explanations and took her time. It's like she sensed that I left my former doctor because he was always rushed and impatient, and she was opposite of that. Very glad to have found her!
Great visit! Recently moved to NYC and was looking for a doctor. Dr. Varghese was very friendly and patient. I felt very comfortable during the appointment. Would recommend.
Besty was incredibly thoughtful, professional and knowledgable. I did not feel rushed at all, and Betsy spent a lot of time getting properly up to date with my medical history and concerns. She was efficient, eliminating a number of tests we didn't need to do, but at the same time very thorough and I felt like she took every precaution.
Recently moved to NYC so I needed a primary care physician, preferably a woman who could relate to a young adult - Dr. Varghese was a great find. The appointment was very efficient but she was very present and willing to take the time to answer any questions I had. She was super sweet, knowledgable, and informed me that she is easy to contact if I ever need anything. The staff at Dr. Varghese office were also great - I had to change my appointment date and it was not a problem at all, they actually were able to take me a few days earlier than my original scheduled appointment date!
Dr. Varghese was kind, professional, well informed, and pragmatic. She listened, asked thorough questions and was forward thinking about specialists/next steps. I didn't have to wait at all for my appointment and felt like Dr. Varghese was efficient, yet comprehensive. The nurses and staff were also warm and competent.
After waiting over an hour for my scheduled appointment, I was finally seen. Betsy didn't know what I was visiting for even though I signed up for a routine physical. She checked my breathing and blood pressure and took blood. She didn't look at by ears nose or throat nor did she check my eyes. Overall very disappointed in the professionalism and care. I will be contacting the medical office to make sure they do not bill my insurance.
I LOVE Dr. Varghese! Having moved my Maryland, I had to find all new doctors and this can be a tough task. I loved my old doctors and felt comfortable with them. I was happy I felt that level of comfort with Dr. Varghese as well. The one thing I was annoyed with is the wait time. I don't get why I have to be on time to sit for 40 minutes to be seen. I'm missing time for work, they could at least see patients within a timely manner.
Dr, Varghese was very thorough, extremely professional and listened to my concerns.
She was very nice and professional. A little lecture-y about my weight. I know I'm overweight I have access to mirrors and a scale and I am trying to do something about it, thank you. Otherwise she was good. I also liked that I was able to get my blood work done right away and the nurse who helped me was very good.
Betsy is excellent! Made me feel at ease and was attentive, never making me feel rushed. Would highly recommend
I was taken aback by how unassuming and warm Dr. Varghese was - I've rarely had a doctor who stepped into the room smiling! She took the time to listen and have a conversation about my health, and made me feel utterly at ease. The wait wasn't too bad - probably about 10-15 mins. I've definitely found my new GP!
Great! Easy physical, the doctor was very professional. Wait time was a little long, but not long enough to keep me from coming back.
Very thorough and personable.
She's amazing. She takes the time to understand what you need, really listens, and the appointment never feels rushed. She's is just generally amazing all around. 10/10. Highly recommended.
Dr. Varghese listened carefully to me as I described my symptoms, then asked many questions in order to find a clear solution to my medical issues. She did not rush the appointment at all, and did not end our discussion until we both agreed on a diagnosis and treatment plan. She was warm, yet highly professional and very thorough in her bedside manner. I trust her and would highly recommend her to others.
Dr Varghese is awesome! She is caring and definitely addresses your concerns in the utmost professional manner.
Very professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommended for people seeking a young, intelligent, reasonable doctor.

Listened to all my questions and provided clear informative answers. Good bedside manner and knows her stuff.
She was very personable and easy to talk with about any health concerns I was having.
Came in for my annual physical. Dr. Varghese (and Sorybel) were great. She was very attentive and took her time to ask me about my health issues and family history. I didn't feel rushed at all. I think I may finally found my PCP :)
Dr. Varghese was very professional and efficient. The wait time at the office took far too long. As a new patient, I arrived 10 minutes early to allow time for paperwork, which I completed by the time of the appointment. I was then told to wait, and was not called back for my appointment until 35 minutes after my designated appointment time. I was probably in the waiting room longer than I was in the actual appointment, which is unfortunate.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Betsy Varghese. She took her time to make me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. I was really impressed with her attention to personal history, nutrition and lifestyle. She really cares about treating your concerns by examining all factors that may be contributing to them.
She is knowledgable, helpful, and caring! Highly recommend,
I really appreciated Betsy's time that she spent with me . She took the time to understand my problem and did her best to comfort, and treat me . I am happy to know that I have a new Dr that cares about me and will do her best to help me get better!
Dr. Varghese is personable, practical and professional! Her office is convenient, clean and efficient. I would highly recommend her as a primary care physician to my friends and family.

I went in for my annual physical. She was very thorough with all her questions concerning my health. She also had a very cheerful demeanor and made the visit a pleasurable experience. Definitely would recommend going to her!
It was quite. Not a lot of ppl. Dr. Betsy was really professional and nice.
She was extremely friendly and knowledgable and asked a lot of questions to really get to the issues.
I don't do well with getting blood drawn. On the day of my appointment, I was feeling feint and the nurse couldn't draw enough blood, so I had to come back the next morning. The nurse that day was incredible. She was very sweet and calmed me down and ensured that I was comfortable and distracted. She turned my scary experience into something manageable. Dr. Betsy was very kind and listened to me and was thorough and professional. She suggested the best care for me, not simply standard protocol or things my insurance wouldn't support. For a new member of the NYC community, I think I may have found my PCP.
Fantastic care from Dr. Varghese, glad to have finally found a permanent primary care doctor.
From the front office to the vitals to the consultation to the follow up - excellent. Everyone was so kind and attentive. The facility is very clean and comfortable. They prepared referrals on the spot, and I got a follow up phone call within hours to help make a specialist appointment. Dr. Varghese is a great listener, knowledgeable, and focused right in on the most important concerns. I immediately felt I could trust her and was in good hands. What more can I say? Highly recommended.
Dr. Varghese was very helpful, asked lots of questions and listened to all of my concerns with her full attention. She didn't rush me in and out and I truly felt like she wanted to help.
Very thorough and kind!
Going to the doctor for whatever reason can be very anxiety-inducing but I always feel very calm and safe with this staff. Would recommend to anyone.
Dr. Varghese is wonderful! She takes time to answer my questions and give me all the information I need. She's an excellent choice if you're looking for a PCP.
Nice and knowledgable and was a great doctor. But the wait time was crazy. I waited over an hour in the waiting room and then a blood test and referrals also took forever.
Very friendly and helpful. Patiently walked me through my annual check up. Will keep her as my primary doctor.
Dr. Varghese was thorough, put me instantly at ease and has a great bedside manner. I have been searching for a new GP for a while and have found her. On another note -- the offices are bright, new and a really nice place to go for a doctor visit.
I would have liked a physical examination.
I have been looking, without much success, for a doctor I liked and felt comfortable with for the last 7 years in NYC. However I feel like I found he right person today in Dr. Varghese. She was extremely pleasant and quite knowledgable and answered all of my questions without making me wait forever for my appointment. It has taken a REALLY long time, but I think I've finally found a primary care doctor I will stick with!
A friend recommended Dr. Varghese, and now I'm doing the same. She was very attentive, thorough, and willing to walk me through any questions I had. Highly recommended!

Thorough and informative. Friendly. Great personality and attentive.
She has been the first doctor in SEVEN years to really try to help diagnosis me. Dr. Varghese is kind and through. She listened and asks follow up questions to really try to help you and she follows up with you personally. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is having a hard time trying to find a proper diagnosis.
Absolutely great experience! The women at the front desk, the physician's assistant and most of all Dr. Varghese were all very friendly, knowledgable and attentive. Dr. Varghese was very thorough in her examination and took the time to explain everything and answer all questions that I had. I will definitely be going back.

Dr Varghese went out of her way to answer and address all my questions and concerns. Excellent bedside manner, patient and charming. So glad I found her!
My visit with Dr. Varghese was wonderful. She was so pleasant, spent time listening to me, asking questions and re-reviewing all the details with me. Also, Dr. Varghese made sure I understood everything before our visit was over and had the proper paperwork. I did not feel rushed at all and felt that I could ask Dr. Varghese anything. The nurse & assistants were so kind as well they would walk into a room with a smile, super kind when greeting me, and made sure to say goodbye. I felt comfortable with everyone I met. I would 100% recombined Dr. Varghese.
The office is very nice and everyone who works there as lovely. The doctor was kind and patient and thorough.
My only complaint would be the (20-25 minute) wait between being put in an exam room (and having my vitals checked) and being seen by Dr. Vargese. Otherwise, great visit. I will likely see Dr. Vargese again
Very professional, thorough and comfortable doctor!
I've had a few horror stories in my search for primary care and I think I've finally found a home with Dr. Varghese. The staff was friendly and prompt, the doctor took her time and asked pertinent questions and I couldn't have been happier.
Extremely professional and courteous. She really spends the time to problem solve whatever ailments you are experiencing. Great staff and very modern facility. She lives up to all her great reviews.
She was extremely sweet and made me feel completely comfortable. I'd definitely go back to see her again.
She really listened to me and took the time to really discuss my issues.
Dr. Varghese was wonderful! She addressed all my concerns during the visit and gave me a follow up call the next day to see how I was feeling. She is very caring and compassionate I would highly recommend her,
