Dr Varma is a wonderful doctor! She has helped my husband tremendously. She is very thorough with getting all medical history and has a great sense of humour to boot! She is a very caring and compassionate doctor. I would definitely recommend her.

Dr Varma is a compassionate, empathetic and dynamic psychiatrist. She helped my son and our family through a difficult 7 months guiding him from severe depression to a successful recovery. She is knowledgeable about current medication research and keen to ensure safe practice and care with medication changes. She provides lots of supplementary information about the health condition and options and works with your child and you to make decisions that you all agree with. She had great rapport with my teenage son and he found he could confide in her without judgement. She is holistic in her approach and looks at the whole picture- taking a practically focused, problem solving therapeutic approach. She communicated effectively with other professionals involved, and knew when my son needed to step up his care to hospital services. She was easy to contact at all times and responsive to queries outside of appointment time. Her office staff was also excellent- very kind and well organized.

Dr. Varma's office is great. Communication with patients is clearly a high priority -- if you're looking for a sense of understanding and personal connection with your psychiatrist, or even just a straight answer from Dr. Varma or her office staff, this is the place for you.

Dr. Varma and her staff are accommodating, pleasant, and thorough. Not only was Dr. Varma able to help me, but she did it without making me uncomfortable. Easy to talk to and very approachable.

Thank you for the time that my daughter was able to meet with you. It was definitely helpful. She is still using strategies that you suggested. She just brought you up as we were trying to make a crowded flight home and her anxiety kicked in. She recognizes that she will have to continue to navigate through her anxiety and being an introvert in social situations. She is on a good path to continue to work through her problems.

Very welcoming office. Not clinical at all. Dr Varma really helped our family with our lack of communication and we are in a much better place now.

I first want to start by saying Dr.varma is a very personal doctor. She listen to my entire life story on first appointment and was able to help me focus on me, which I haven't been able to do in a long time. She was the first doctor to look at my situation as a whole and is helping me with my day to day struggles with life, work and any other things that affect my mental health.

I am grateful to Dr. Varma for keeping me at my job. I was about to be fired but she helped with FMLA paperwork and getting me better. When I had problems with the medication, she was easliy available to switch medication.

It''s obvious to me and my family that I have suffered with bi polar disorder my entire life but went undiagnosed and untreated. Today, I'm free of symptoms. The doctor, through years of compassionate and ethical treatment, has put me on a path to a new life free from worry about depression and anxiety! Granted, I put my own work in but she showed me the way and provided me with the means and support to make it happen. Absolutely priceless.

I feel fortunate to have found Dr.Varma. She was referred to me by a co-worker. She has affected my life dramatically and really cares. I went untreated for depression and anxiety for many years. I struggled without knowing. I am now being treated. I feel I am on the right track now because of her and have felt a tremendous amount of relief. I couldn't even talk on the phone at the beginning of treatment due to my anxiety. Dr Varma helped me with meds and assignments. She talks at my level to me, not at me. I would highly recommend her.
