Dr. Roslyn T Varki has the following 2 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

I absolutely loved Dr. Varki. She is just plain lovely. Everything, from her bedside manner, to her knowledge, to the way she explained my son's issue. She's physically beautiful and sweet. I'm quite choosy about my children's physicians, (my husband says I'm overly critical), but not here.
Dr. Varki is, by far, my child's and my favorite Dr. She spoke directly to my child in a friendly and engaging manner, answering all questions and was, in general, lovely and personable and very, VERY, reassuring. It is (unfortunately) rare to feel such an immediate personal connection with a medical professional, leading both my child and I to wish we see Dr. Varki for all her medical care!
Dr. Varki was happy to see my children - easy to get an appointment, spent a lot of time, but when it came time for billing, WOW! $700 later, i find bogus diagnoses so that she can get more money, and my insurance company refuses to cover given that it was not the well visit that they would, and that I had indicated when I booked the appointment AND when i filled out all of the forms as to why I was there for my kids age 12 and 14. The diagnoses that she made up were acne for my 14 year old (she has fewer pimples than i do and i am 48, and lesions for my 12 year old who has moles that I just wanted to make sure we had a base view in case they change over time... who doesnt have moles? By the way, the 14 yera old has moles too, but i guess acne is a better diagnosis for Dr. Varki's pocket. Now, of course, after 5 calls into her, no calls back, just collection letters... Worst Doctor I have ever seen in my entire life, including those for my kids. What a quack
We brought our daughter who at the time was only 3 weeks old to Dr. Varki to have numerous small hemangiomas looked at. By the end of our appoinment, we had a script in hand to have an ultrasound done on our daughter. We feared that the many hemangiomas that were growing externally, could mean that something was happening internally. Sure enough, our daughter had 7 hemangiomas growing on her liver as a newborn. Within a week, our daughter was hospitalized at Dupont and started on a miracle drug called propranolol. We owe all of this doing to our wonderful pediatric dermatologist, Dr. Varki. It has been 3 months since our daughter first started the medication and it has literally saved her liver and her life. We are so thankful for Dr. Varki who helped get everything underway to help our daughter. We always look forward to our follo-up appointments with her because she is always friendly, welcoming, caring, and really takes her time with us. Not to mention, we drive over an hour from New Jersey to see Dr. Varki. It's definitely worth it!
