Dr Varghese is one if the best doctors i have every been to. After meeting him and telling him about my problem he truly seemed excited to help! I have had severe atopic dermatitis and could not believe how amazing myskin started to look and feel after just a few days of following all the instructions he had given me. The nurse took her time and explained how to use all the medications and how to do wet wraps. I highly recommend Dr Varghese

I've been coming to Dr. Varghese for many years now and it's always been a good experience. This was the first time I visited the UWS office in Manhattan and it was super easy to get to, even from the financialdistrict. It's a short walk from the 96th street stop and right off broadway. I had an appointment at 2pm and was seen 5-10 mins later. All of the nurses and Dr. Varghese himself were such a great help and were able to prescribe the correct medication for me to get over the very annoying post-nasal drip I had. Better yet, the office was thorough with their followup to make sure I was feeling better and that the medication worked as expected. I've recommended Dr. Varghese's office in the past and I will continue to do so with this location in the UWS.

I started seeing Dr Varghese a few months ago for hives. They were all over my body and happening at all odd times. There was no rhyme or reason why they would come. I went to the urgent care twice andonce to my primary doctor. They gave me steroids and Benadryl. Which helped temporarily. I found this doctor and decided to see if there was anything that could be done, like maybe a food I was eating. My first visit was very thorough, the doctor and nurses spent over an hour explaining this condition which I had never heard of, chronic urticaria which he felt that I had. He explained it was not related to food or the outdoor allergies but something happening because of immune cells in my skin. He gave me handouts to read and wrote me a prescription plan. The first few days after the visit I was still having hives, despite taking an antihistamine in the morning and evening. I called frantic and wanted to know why the treatment wasn't working. The doctor told me to come right in and examined me. He was very patient and heard me out totally which is something I usually don't get in my doctors. He asked me to double the evening dose of the prescription antihistamine and to see if I was better. He also sad he would apply for Xolair. An injection that helps with hives. But that it might take a while for the insurance to approve it. I felt a little better after a few days and went back the week after. He informed me had a sample of Xolair, which rarely comes available and was willing to give it to me. I was feeling better with the new medication but still was breaking out. Xolair helped but it took a few attempts and a lot of patience that Dr Varghese clearly has to talk to you and find the right treatment plan. He really works with you and his nurses are great. They're always available to answer questions. They help you every step of the way, no question is too dumb and they doesn't mind sitting with you and discussing treatment options together even when there are setbacks. He really cares about what he does and you can definitely notice that every step of the way.

I was so sick this weekend and Dr. Varghese made sure to take his time and diagnose me correctly and treat me properly. I’m not feeling almost 100% better and couldn’t be more satisfied with my visit!

I have had several appointments with this doctor, and after my initial visit they have become increasingly unsatisfactory. On my most recent visit, the doctor and staff were disrespectful of my time and dismissive of some of my concerns. I waitedover 20 minutes outside in the hallway with another patient because the nurses were at lunch and were late coming back (my appointment was at 2pm). When they came back, they didn’t even apologize and the doctor did not apologize either during my visit (he knew they were late because the other patient had texted him and that was how we found out the nurses were at lunch). During my visits (other than my initial one), I felt like the doctor was more interested in moving along to do something else than to listen to my experiences with what he prescribed and my hopes for how I would feel going forward. The doctor only interacted with me briefly (2-3 minutes) on each visit after my initial visit. I would highly recommend finding a different doctor.

This is my fourth visit with this doctor. When I first went to see Dr. Varghese I was having very severe eczema, which I've had all my life. It had been bothering me so bad, I would wear clothing that wouldhide it when it got worse. I was given creams by derms I went to see and had tried OTC medications with some help but it always came back. The doctor told me eczema is something that is cause by my cells in the blood that are not functioning as they should and that I should treat my overall allergy. He told me that my nasal symptoms I had been dealing with were related to my skin. How, he told me that when one area of the immune system gets affected the others will be too so he told me that we should treat the overall person. During the first visit which was well over an hour his nurses performed allergy skin tests which showed I was very allergic to pollen and other indoor allergies. They also did a breathing test which showed my lung was not putting out air like it should. The doctor reviewed everything and treated me for my nasal and what he thought was asthma. Which I didnt even know I had. For my eczema, he told me to do wet wraps which the nurses explained to me in detail. It took 2 or 3 days but I felt better not just for my skin but my breathing. Everything improved over the next few weeks. My skin cleared up and I woke up more refreshed now that I was breathing better at night thanks to the nasal spray and inhaler he prescribed me. I also started allergy shots and am really excited to see how they will help, everything else already has so much. Great doctor and office. Highly recommend. Thanks Dr Varghese and nurses.

Dr. Varghese is smart and emphatic professional. He and his team are quite organized, swift, congenial and smart. I have seen lot of improvements in myself without taking stronger doses/drugs/shots which my earlier doctor use to recommend.I like his medical plan for myself and he recommends to see you if thinks it is required. I think he really cares for his patients and his staff helps him to take care of them promptly. They recently renovated their north bergen clinic and made it more spacious and accommodating. Lot of rooms for examination and tests.

Dr. Varghese cured me! I had what I thought were colds year-round. They were actually allergies to dust and pollen. I recommend Dr. Varghese to everyone I speak to about allergies. He is everything you want in a doctor - courteous,enthusiastic, helpful etc. The office staff is super friendly and helpful, as are the nurses, who are extraordinary knowledgeable. I never have to wait long for my therapy, and if I have an irregular appointment, the doc is always on time.

In mu case I have a VERY rear medical conditionthat he was not familiar with. Instead of rejecting me, he assumed the challange to learn with me. How he is an expert on my medical condition, being able to provide me witj tje best guidance and to keep me under control. I fully recomend Doctor Varghese. He also see my kinds. I called him my primary doctor because I don't want any other doctor to see me.

I have been a patient of DR Varghese for many years, I became a patient after being referred by my Primary Doctor. The office was very small at that time. After only a few visits, I told DR V someday hewould need the entire building for his practice. My prediction in on its way to become reality. He is one of the best Doctors I have ever been a patient of. He is a true Doctor, He will do whatever is necessary help His patients, He has helped me tremendously. I have referred many people to Him and will continue to do so, May He live A Hundred Years !! Nicholas F L
