One of the things I appreciate most about Dr. Verma is his focus on me during a visit. He enters the room, sits down on the rolling chair and faces me while we talk. Only after we have talked through a few things, does he turn to his computer to make notes. Then he always ends each visit by facing me again, maintaining eye contact, and answers any other questions I have.
