Dr. Varma was very kind and knowledgeable. My child and I felt very much at ease during our visit with him. He listened to all of my concerns/comments and spoke to us in a way that was easy to follow.

The nurses did a fantastic job, but Dr. Varma even though he did his job in evaluating my son and then ordering the tests that he needed, was not friendly, was cold and distant. He asked me if I had any questions and then when I asked him about what could have caused my son's seizure, he acted a bit arrogant and said " that is why we are doing tests" in a condescending tone and left the room as if my work here was done. He did not like my question at all. As a parent of an non verbal autistic child, I have a lot of concerns about my son's care under this new scenario of seizures. Again he did his job but he needs to work on his treatment of the parents. He needs to be friendly and approachable.
