Dr. Varghese is awesome. He narrowed down my skin symptoms in a matter of minutes and was able to provide both medication and alternate testing recommendations to get to the base of the allergies. Always professional and extremely knowledgeable about well-rounded approaches to dermatology. Would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a thorough/friendly dermatologist.

I had a great experience. The wait time was short and Dr. Varghese was attentive, professional and friendly in his conversation and interaction with me. I was there to have a mole inspected on the back of my neck. Dr. Varghese determined that the mole was of concern and should be removed. Although I was only there for a consult, he managed to take care of it it for me right then and there. I will absolutely continue all skin care needs with Dr. Varghese and I would recommend him with no hesitation to others.

Not impressed. Yet another messianic doctor from Cornell. After I received no less than 4 irritating texts on my phone to be on time or I would be charged, Dr Varghes was 25 minutes late and tried to argue he was only 15 minutes late which was odd to begin with. He also brought two “scribes” into the appointment room which he insisted had to be with him. And this despite the room being barely larger than a large closet, which was also completely uncomfortable for a physical exam. The only reason he’s getting two stars is that he was somewhat knowledgeable. I’m done with the arrogant, overly rude and messianic doctors and staff at Cornell which I have reviewed before. It also took three months to get this appointment which was certainly not worth the wait. Perhaps an etiquette class might help this doctor who has -0- bedside manner skills. An overall terrible experience to be avoided.
