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'mspread 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.

She was quite knowledgeable and made me very comfortable. She went over what my insurance covered so I wouldn't be surprised in the future. Her staff was very accommodating and the wait wasn't bad at all. I definitely recommend!

Staff members tell you misinformation and then argue with you about it. Won't just take a pregnancy test, forces you to get birth control while you are on your period. Previous doctors have not done this, they just take a pregnancy test.

I like this doctor very much because she is very thorough and takes time to answer all of your questions, which might be the reason other patients have an issue with this office keeping their appointments on time. However, for me,I find it good to book my appointments either the first available or last available times or on the weekends. I think the front desk staff leave a little more to be desired, as I think there are language barriers here, but overall, I like the doctor and believe that the hour drive I make to her yearly is well worth it. Dr. Varshney is great at what she does and is very honest in her opinions. I wish she had an office in DC, but nevertheless, the hour drive is well worth it for me to have a quality doctor who is professional and has an excellent way of dealing with patients. I trust her 100%.

I had a great experience with Dr Varshney. She was very friendly and caring. She answered every single question/concern that I had regarding my pregnancy, and she took her time to guide me through everything that needed to be done. Idon't feel rushed at all, even though my appointment was on a Sunday, which I asked and was told that it would normally be one of the busiest days for both Dr Varshney and the staff. Reception staff are friendly and helpful, too. I waited for only 10 minutes. Everything was quick and easy. Thank you, Dr Varshney!

The office is very disorganized and the front desk staff aren't very clear or helpful (you have to ask a few times to understand what they expect of you), but Dr. Varshney is wonderful. I got my IUD through her andshe did an excellent job -- I only experienced minor discomfort (of course, every body and every body's experience is different), and the whole process was pretty quick and painless. Great bedside manner, and despite my being nervous about the procedure, Dr. Varshney was very understanding and gentle. Definitely recommend her for IUD consultation/insertion or general women's care.

The doctor was polite but did not help me at all. I still have the same issue and no help. Her diagnosis seemed very weird. I will have to go to a different doctor. Also, I was told they can onlydo one thing at the time, meaning I can not have a pap smear and general exam at once. I also had to to call several times for results.
