Varun Verma, M.D.
Board-certified Internal Medicine Physician
I believe in healthcare access, justice, and improved quality for all.
I always felt that the field of medicine encompasses many aspects that are personally important to me: being a healer, scientist, activist and advocate for the poor. Despite the prevalent ‘skunking’ of previous generations of doctors who lament the paperwork, insurance reimbursements, bureaucracy and whatever else – I still believe healthcare is wondrous, and being a physician a sacred honor. No other field gives one such an incredible opportunity to connect with fellow human beings. I firmly believe that if doctors actually stood together and focused on the patient’s benefit rather than talking about their own grievances – we could unite together and reach the nirvana in healthcare of which we have dreamed. As someone once said: When ‘I’ is replaced with ‘We’, even ‘Illness’ becomes ‘Wellness’.
