I met Dr. Verras in my childbirth class at Northside Hospital where he addressed our class. I interviewed him and selected him to be the pediatrician for my first child born in 1989. 23 years and 2 more kids later I just took what might be my last trip to his office with my 18 year old baby for shots before leaving for college. In those 23 years I have moved from Gwinnett to Alpharetta and I still drive to Tucker to see Dr. Verras because he is the best. In 23 years I think that I have only had to see another covering doctor once because he is always there. He will come to the phone to talk to a worried mom and he must return calls between every patient because return calls are always prompt. Never have I been asked to wait until the next day to bring in a sick child. He is the most dedicated doctor and all three of my children have been comfortable with Dr. Verras. I would encourage you to check him out!!

I really like both Dr. Verras and Dr. John at Verras Pediatrics. I started with Dr. Verras, who is great, but Dr. John takes her time with her patients which is what I like about her. Both are very good pediatricians and have a fast response time when paged. I'd definitely recommend this office!

Now that my two are off to college I have to say it is truly a rite of passage to "graduate" from Dr. Verras. With a 22 year old and an 18 year old, it's time to grow up! We couldn't have done it without Dr. Verras. He was there when both were born and no one else has ever handled their healthcare needs. He was always available and always caring and responsive. Truly, everything one could want in a pediatrician. I hope you read this, Dr. Verras. You meant a lot to our family over the years and we will miss you very much. If only the whole medical profession cared as much as you. From our whole family - thank you.

Dr. Verras was my pediatrition when I was younger. I turn 27 next week and my wife and I just had our first child two days ago, while in the hospital my mother ran into him at the elevator and he came up to the room to meet my wife and brand new little boy. Since the introduction he's stopped by our room several times to check in on our baby and our current pediatrition has only been in once. Needless to say, we will be switching doctors next week. Not only is he a great pediatrition, he's a genuine person who really cares about his patients.

This doctor is a rare find! Whoever thinks he or his staff is acting preferentially because of insurance is incredibly mistaken! The majority of his patients are on Peachcare or Medicare. Those who are self pay only have to pay what Medicare would pay for a visit! They even work with you in difficult financial situations. That's awesome!! He is available to his patients nights and weekends - something that is almost unheard of these days. Plus he's there until 7 or 8pm! I'm not his nurse, but I am a nurse and I can really appreciate how hard he and his staff have to work with the amount of patients they see a day. Sick, screaming kids 10 hours a day are not easy to deal with. Dr. Verras specializes in hematology and picks up on a lot of things other physicians wouldn't.

Dr Verras is great, but his staff is the worst... extremely rude they make you fell like they're doing you a favor... they will not even look at you when you get to the counter... also when you call you need to be very specific and don't ask lot of questions... they just seem like they don't want to be there they just have to:(. I wasn't working and I am a single mom so I had medicaid and when I took my son for his 4 months check Dr Verras asked the nurse to weight the baby etc... guess what was her answer... I am already taking care of Ms..... baby she has insurance..... it was a slap on my face...if Medicaid doesn't pay why do you accept it??? anyways the first thing I did when I got a job and a great Group insurance I switched... and I wish that Dr Verras will chose a better people to represent his office....

Dr. Verras is the best pediatrician I have ever encountered. He knows his stuff and if he comes across something he is not sure, he will definitely do the research and get to the bottom if it. Dr. John is also a very great doctor. As for the front office, the majority of them are okay and somewhat friendly but for some reason they put the one with the worst attitude at the check in counter. But regardless of her attitude I still would not change pediatricians because Dr. Verras is very knowledgeable and truely cares about his patients.

If it wasn't for the front office staff, then I would rate Verras Pediatrics excellent. Dr. Verras and Dr. John are great. But front office staff makes me feel like I am back in a third world country where to get the smallest thing done, the person will want you to know that they have the power and control. I work in a healthcare clinic and my visits to Verras Pediatrics made me appreciate the level of service we provide to our clients. I guess maybe the front office staff have had bad experiences. But, nonetheless, I am not asking for a free service and when a customer pays, you treat them well.

We used Dr. Verras for several years when we lived in Norcross. He was wonderful with the children and very good at diagnosing a problem. I highly recommend him.
