Dr. Varshney was so professional , compassionate, and listened to all my concerns. She knew that I was worried about myexam and took the time to make sure I was very comfortable the entire time. She was on-time for the appointment, and her staff was very friendly. I highly recommend her!!!

Doctor was very warm welcoming and sweet I really liked her. I would for sure recommend. But the staff is kindof rude and money minded.

Waited over an hour for my appointment. I asked how much long after an hour over my appointment time, they stated that there was another patient before me. After I asked for a refund of my copay, the doctor then comes and tells me she can see me. No apologies were given to me.

She was a lovely doctor and put me at ease. However the only down side was the receptionist. She wasn’t very polite or well mannered. Past that it was a wonderful visit.

She is a good doctor but is never on time for appointments. It doesn’t matter whether I book first thing in the morning or a Saturday she is always late. I have waited almost 2 hours a few times. Her office staff are useless at keeping patients informed of wait times. I have had them ask me “Do you have an appointment “ at 9am when they confirmed by email tbe day before. I can’t recommend this office for a busy woman just trying to take care of her annual pap smear. Not worth the wait or frustration.

Despite getting to the clinic early for my appointment, I waited 30 minutes before being seen. Form overhearing bothers waiting to be seen, I quickly realized that several of us had appointments booked for the same time. Once I was called back, the Dr. barely greeted me and left me waiting without a word to stop others from leaving. She then spent a quality 5-7 minutes interacting with me. Even when giving me important news, she was very quick to brush over it, not explaining any education/prognosis/medications/side effects/options. It was very clearly that she just wanted me in and out. Absolutely zero quality, professionalism, and respect for patients.

Dr Shalini is the best. She is so patient and listens carefully. She’s very friendly too. Yes the wait is sometimes long at the office but it’s worth it because she wants to help you and discuss all your concerns in a careful and kind manner.

I went in for a cervical biopsy because of abnormal cells. We were only a few moments into the procedure, she'd already cranked me open with the pterodactyl (what I call that metal thing they use). The nurse walks in, I'm spread open on the table. and she leaves the door ajar (the doctor had to tell her to close it). She told the doctor there was a phone call for her. The doctor then proceeds to leave me laying there cramping and uncomfortable wide open, catching a breeze, to take the phone call In the room. The nurse stood there and staring at my privates as the doctor talked on the phone for at least 2 minutes. The whole procedure lasted about 45 minutes. It was very painful and she kept stuffing me with gauze to stop the bleeding from the biopsied areas. I can say with much certainty that being stuffed with gauze is not pleasant. This was my third visit with her. Despite the long wait times I'd liked her and came back for the procedure. I will never go back again.
