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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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 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.
