"Dr. Sue Varma is a compelling and articulate speaker. She brought tremendous insight and knowledge to our discussion of various issues relating to motherhood."
-Gwen Gowen, Producer at ABC News
“I spoke with Dr. Sudeepta Varma this past summer when NPR produced a feature report on the growing phenomena of ‘staycations’. Dr. Varma helped me shape the story during pre interview research. Her thoughtful and expert advice was particularly helpful. As a result of this pre-interview, I had new and fresh angles on my story which I later discussed with Dr. Varma in more depth during our interview. Dr. Varma graciously came to our studios in New York City and spoke with me for as long as needed. She was clear, simple, informative and enthusiastic. This is particularly important, of course, in broadcasting where simplicity and tone can make all the difference in whether listeners are engaged, or not. And, ultimately, our listeners were. We received a number of e-mails and telephone messages, with listeners expressing their interest and concerns about ‘staycations’.”
-Patricia Neighmond, National Public Radio, Health Policy Correspondent
“I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Sudeepta Varma on an ABC News piece depression medications during pregnancy. I found her to be articulate and insightful. She could address both sides of an emotional and controversial story. What I also appreciate is her ability to boil down complicated subject matter into concise language a general audience can easily grasp. I think she is a terrific editorial resource on mental health issues and I intend to call on her expertise in the future.
-Felicia Biberica, Producer, ABC News
“I was put in touch with Dr. Sue Varma through the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Varma is a reputable and knowledgeable expert on post-traumatic stress disorder. She discussed difficult and complex issues in a conversational, easy-to-understand manner, and truly connected with viewers. She was always professional and was a pleasure to work with. She was also available to answer any last-minute questions…and made sure I had the most accurate, up-to-date information for my television news story. I look forward to working with her again in the future.”
-Kerri Winick, Senior Producer at NewsProNet

"Dr. Sudeepta Varma was Newsday's Sheryl McCarthy’s guest on CUNY-TV’s “One to One”. It is a half hour program. Dr. Varma was not only informed, informative, but engaging and articulate. She is enthusiastic about her work and open and curious about not only her subject specialty, but I would hazard a guess, pretty much all that life has to offer. You will be fortunate to have her on a panel."
-Doris Bergman, Producer “New York Times Close Up” for NY1 News and Consultant “One to One” for CUNY-TV
"I had the pleasure of having Dr. Sudeepta Varma as my guest on the new Doctor's Radio Channel on Sirius Satellite Radio. Dr. Varma was my guest on the psychiatry "Frames of Mind Show" and she and I spoke for 2 hours on the air about PTSD and her work with 9/11 victims. She was a relaxed, thoughtful, humorous, and easy guest and I recommend her to speak o any topic she so chooses."
-Dr. Michael Dulchin, Unit Chief and Director of Inpatient Psychiatry, NYU Langone Med Center
Dr Varma was a huge help for a story I was working on for Women's Health
Magazine. She answered all my questions clearly and in a timely manner. She was very patient with all the follow-up questions I asked her, and took the time to make sure I understood everything. She was a fantastic source!
-Loren Chidoni, Editorial Assistant,Women's Health
“Your input was not only very informative and precise, it was - equally important for lay readers - totally clear and illuminating, in non-medical language. You offered insights that were not only "expert," but that simply and directly addressed the concerns of just about every American. For that, thank you.”
-Reporter, Associated Press
“Dr. Varma is one of the most talented, bright and dedicated psychiatrists I work with. She is dedicated to providing valuable educational awareness to the issues of mental health. Her strong background and experience working with the press is a benefit to the public understanding of mental illness. She is very relatable and credible as a media spokesperson and would be a valued addition to any outlet seeking a medical/psychiatric contributor. In addition to her excellent interpersonal abilities, professionalism, and positive attitude towards public outreach, Dr. Varma is a wonderful, enjoyable person to work with.”
-Rhondalee Dean-Royce, Media Relations and Communications Specialist, American Psychiatric Association
“Dr. Sudeepta Varma is a multi-talented psychiatrist. She has both clinical strengths, leadership and administrative abilities, and is a creative writer and teacher. She works extremely well with others. She is able to ask for help when needed as well as provide it. She seeks challenges and rises to the occasion. I believe Dr. Varma will deliver outstanding contribution to whatever position she seeks. I highly recommend her as a dedicated, competent psychiatrist.

"Dr. Varma was an articulate, passionate and compelling guest. She clearly described not only how stress, anxiety and other issues can prevent jobseekers from getting hired, but she provided extremely useful tools and advice on overcoming barriers so jobseekers can maximize their chances of success now. Dr Varma is a great communicator, and I look forward to having her on our program again soon."
