Dr. Varela was awesome. I came from another local doctor who was no longer in my network but that I also had a so-so experience with. Dr. Varela spent 40 minutes with me, talking through what he saw on my scansand answering questions. He seemed genuinely interested in helping me think about my medical concerns and was not in a rush to leave. He left me with a couple options and offered to discuss next steps after I had a few tests done.

I think he's great! Very easy to talk to. Not a typical doctor that acts like he just knows everything and you are lucky to be there. It was my first visit but so far I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Very good, No rush, and wonderful customer service. They are great at describing everything thats good for you. There is no rush but you go at a fast pace but in a slow pace at the same time. So thats whatmakes it wonderful its fast but not too fast. Plus they go through all the procedures necessary and it's all for a low price.
