Went to consult for a nagging back issue. I was the first one post lunch so took me right in. Listened carefully and then sent me for an x-ray. Showed me the x-rays on screen and helped me understand the diagnosis.Gave me referral for physical therapy and sent me on my way. Spent about 30 mins at the center.

He was knowledgeable and proficient. After my MRI, he was impossible to reach (over a week to get the results). When we finally met face to face again, he didn't seem recall anything about my case.

Definitely very intelligent and no non-sense personality. He gave me clear responses to my questions. I will definitely go back to him in the future as my degenerative disease progresses.

I have multiple spinal issues. Doctor Varma listen to my very long list of issues as well as the variety of prognosis I have received from various doctors. He decided to look at MRI for himself and get to his own conclusion. I couldn’t be happier :)

Good. He gave me a thorough exam, diagnosed me clearly and listened to my concerns, and made good recommendations for my care.

Horrible bedside manner- he rushes you in and out. Front desk staff is rude and unhelpful, they take days to return your call. Would definitely not recommend.

Really nice staff and clean, modern office await was 2 hours, but because they said my zocdoc appt didn't flow through to their system. If you make an appointment through here, definitely call the office directly to confirm.

Came about 15 min before my appointment as recommended, but got to the room 40 min later and waited in the room 10 min for the doc. Spent a total of 3 min with the doc for a quick reflex andstretch test then was sent out to X-ray, came back in the room for a 1 min talk. Didn't get a chance to ask any questions. Wish I had a chance to actually explain how I can get better and try to figure out what was happening
