Ranji Varghese, MD

Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“I believe that the cornerstone for healthy outcomes begins with a solid doctor-patient relationship. This means that the doctor and patient are respectfully aligned as partners to explore the reasons for feeling unwell, and work together to find the most appropriate approach for wellness.”

Clinical Expertise

Dr. Varghese’s interests in neuroscience and consciousness drive a passion to understand human behavior in its relation to sleep and mental wellbeing. While using up-to-date, evidence based data to formulate balanced treatment plans allows for positive clinical outcomes, he firmly believes that personal transformation occurs experientially through the trust of the patient doctor relationship. And thus, he sees himself simply as a guide.
