This doctor is a magician!!!! I’ve had my varicose veins for over 12 years and ever since the day one I didn’t put on the dress. For a young person like me it’s a tragedy! So i decided that’s it timeto have them gone! Guys, you won’t believe the results! Dr Chris made my legs brand new! With the veins removal he made me feel confident and pretty again!!!! In Ukraine we call them doctors with gold hands! He is attentive,responsible and the most honest person! He has gentle hands that you won’t feel anything they are doing! He walked through the whole process with all the details! During the procedure he made sure I was feeling as comfortable as possible, he made sure i didn’t feel any pain and so on. After the procedure him and his assistant were checking on me even after their work hours!!! I can’t thank enough for the magic he created! Honestly I was crying because I was so happy to see my legs the way I remember them 12 years ago!!!! The way to go Dr. Chris! Thanks again and again!!!! Wish you the best of luck! You are my hero! You do make difference in this world!!!

Dr. Varughese is an amazing doctor. I chose him based on his reviews. They were spot on. He explained everything to me in great detail. He has a warm and pleasant demeanor. I had visited a different doctor previously and Ifelt worse after that visit. After being seen by Dr. Varughese, all my anxieties were gone. He has an excellent bedside manner. Additionally, Dr. Varigese’s staff are equally as professional and pleasant. Together it made for a pleasant visit.

Hes a young doctor who was nice and very thorough. He was in and out of the room, letting his techs do their job but came back often to see if i was ok. When i was done with the testhe came in the room and talked with me again! You dont get a doctor who is willing to sit and explain everything to you anymore. I recommeneded him several times over already

I definitely have white coat syndrome so I rately ever have positive reviews of doctor visits. However, Dr. Varughese and his entire staff were amazing and made me feel completely comfortable. They were so friendly and conversational I didn'teven feel like I was at the doctor. Most importantly, though, it was clear that Dr. Varughese is exceptionally knowledgeable and competent in his field. He also took the extra time to teach me about my condition down to drawing a picture for me. If you are looking for a cardiologist, I highly recommend Dr. Varughese and his staff.

Exceptional treatment and outstanding professionalism. The doctor is highly attentive and informative. He took the time to listen to my concerns and questions. He answered all of my questions and walked me through each exam/rest step by step,and then further took the time to explain and show me the all of the test results. He is by far, the best doctor I have ever visited - and his staff are well informed and lovely to deal with... What a positive experience!!!
