"Dr. Varma has helped me in ways that no words can explain. I have been a patient for seven months. Dr. Varma has been very thorough in her treatment with me. I have many complex issues that together we have been working through. I have never met with a psychiatrist that takes so much time with their patients. The details, history, and present state of me as an individual is what she has worked with me on. Dr. Varma listens, gives suggestions, and follows through on all aspects of her care. I had a untreated condition since I was a child and by her thoroughness, I was properly tested, diagnosed, and treated with medication. I have come a long way in just seven months. I know it is because of therapy, medication, and Dr. Varma's care and knowledge. Words cannot express my gratitude to her for helping me. I would very much recommend Dr. Varma as a trustworthy, sincere, competent, and caring psychiatrist. She truly has been a blessing in my life."

See Dr. Varma on Fox 6 News discussing the impact of the economy on mental health issues:

"Dr. Varma has impressed me on many levels. She is not only very knowledgeable in her field of medicine but is a committed doctor who makes her self available. I had seen several psychiatrists for most of my life different diagnosis' but never seeing lasting results. Right away Dr. Varma wanted to look at the WHOLE picture of my health and with the simple order of a blood panel we discovered my true diagnosis. I feel better than I have in years. It's not just about the results but the effort she puts in to getting those results. She makes quick appointments, offers a good length of appointments, follows up and answers questions fully."

"Dr. Varma is a rare find. I have been through several Psychiatrists and Psychologists and finally found someone who I feel truly cares about my best interest. She has helped me tremendously. I appreciate the time she takes to listed to my needs and tailors treatments accordingly. It is refreshing to have an MD who treats the mind with more than just drugs. Dr. Varma takes the approach of treating the whole patients. She sends follow up emails, no wait time, and doesn't rush through the appointment. This is simply unheard of! I was reluctant to see a Dr. that was not covered on my insurance plan, but I am truly getting what I need and it is worth every penny. In just 3 months of seeing her, I am a new person!"

"Dr Varma has literally brought light to my life. I would and have told all my friends and family about how amazing she is. She is always there following up and making sure everything is ok. If its not we change what we think will best suit me. Thank you Dr Varma"

"Dr. Varma is a very good listener and has helped me a lot through a very difficult time. She has the specific experience I require related to chronic pain and even send me related articles outside of my appointments. She has very flexible appointment times and I would highly recommend her to my friends."

"I am a new patient to Dr. Varma. Immediately I was impressed with the fact that she answers her own phone, and is always available. She is so thorough and detailed that we were immediately able to get down to business to sort out what things could be done to help me in my present situation. I am just beginning treatment now but am very hopeful, because I have the utmost confidence in her. And she makes me have confidence in myself."

"Thank you again for all your help! So much has happened and changed in the last 6 months -I'm glad you were there to help. You really saved him in both spirit and health ."

"I feel like I have really benefited from having you as my Doctor and appreciate the time you've spent helping me. With you, I've accomplished more in the past four months than the past three years combined."
