My wife had an office visit to Dr. Verma recently. The visit took no more than 15 minutes. During the visit, Dr. Verma performed Laryngoscopy on my wife. The procedure took no more than 2 minutes. Today I received the bill. Dr. Verma charged us more than $700 for the office visit, and more than $800 for the Laryngoscopy. With the insurance adjustments, we still have to pay about $1,300. I find it very hard to justify this price for the medical service provided.BTW, Dr. Verma did not cure my wife at all.
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.
