I made an appointment to see Dr. Verma for a second opinion and I am happy I did. His office staff is friendly and efficient. He is very knowledgeable and very personable. He carefully listened to my situation before the exam and clearly explained my condition and treatment. I feel very comfortable being treated by him and highly recommend him.

Excellent doctor! He took time to explain things to my son and also distract him with tennis talk while sending the tube camera down his throat...

Dr Verma rebuilt my “vocal cord” six months ago. The result was amazing to my friends. After two follow-up visits I am confident he will keep me talking. I have absolute confidence in him!
