Review of Dr. Varon

- in Del Mar, CA |

I recently had a myomectomy ( 20 plus fibroids) with Dr. Varon. As a R.N. myself, I went into our initial consultation with a lot of questions and concerns. Dr. Varon spent a lot of time answering my questions and provided me with realistic expectations. I never felt any pressure to undergo surgery. She educated me regarding the pros and cons of surgery and answered all of my questions. Dr. Varon and her staff ( including Dr. Melber) made me feel so comfortable on my operative day.

Review of Dr. Varon

- in San Diego, CA |

Dr. Varon did a laparoscopic myomectomy on my huge fibroid. I didn't want to have hysterectomy and Dr. Varon listened to what I wanted and just removed the fibroid from my uterus laparoscopically. I have just a few tiny scars and they are already barely visible after 2 weeks. Recovery has been fast and easy. I consider surgery to be a success and very thankful to Dr. Varon for doing a great job. It's been only 2 weeks after my surgery and I already feel much better than I felt in years.

Review of Dr. Varon


Dr. Varon is an excellent doctor and it’s no wonder that she’s always booked. Despite having to wait two months to get an appointment with her, her standard of care was worth the wait. She successfully removed my ovarian cyst that my previous OBGYN had left behind. Moreover, she diagnosed me with endometriosis and removed surrounding tissue (both of which my previous OBGYN had failed to do). I trust Dr. Varon and it’s easy to see that she’s very knowledgeable and skilled in her expertise.

Review of Dr. Deak


Dr. Deak was unbelievably professional and courteous. She made me feel comfortable from the moment she stepped into the exam room. The entire staff, from the front office to the doctor, was amazingly helpful. I'm grateful to have found such a great doctor!

Review of Amanda Becerra

-La Jolla, CA |

I was with the UCSD midwives for my first pregnancy, and while all of the midwives were amazing, Amanda was my favorite. She is patient, kind, knowledgeable, and caring - really a great midwife.

Review of Dr. Varon

- in San Diego, CA |

I had fibroids and did a lot of research to find a competent physician / surgeon to have it removed. I interviewed a couple of physicians before I found Dr. Veron at UCSD medical center. Dr. Veron did all the neccesary tests before recommending surgery. She is caring and listens to her patients and their concerns. My fibroids were very big and Dr. Veron did an amazing job removing them. The scars on my body is barely noticeable. I highly recomend Dr. Veron.

Review of Dr. Varon

- in San Diego |

I was originally referred to Dr. Varon a few years ago because I had a large fibroid that I needed removed, which is her specialty, and I hadn't liked either of the first two surgeons I consulted with. She did an excellent job on my surgery and I've kept her as my general gynecologist ever since. She's very responsive and has always been good about listening to me and tailoring her recommendations to meet my needs and address my concerns.

Review of Dr. Leek

- |

Love Dr. Leek! We were bummed when she switched practices and we were going to follow but had to switch to Kaiser insurance before our little guys 3 year old check up. We switched to her from a previous pediatrician who was very rude and wasn’t very good with little ones. But when our son met Dr. Leek it was obvious he felt much more at ease with her. She is calm and patient and equally knowledgeable and kind. She knows her stuff but is very relateable and personable. She is our favorite!

Review of Dr. Mostamand

- |

I had a horrible experience with this doctor at the UCSD ER. He was extremely rude and dismissive, scolding me when I told him my symptoms and asked why I did not seek care from my primary. My insurance only works in my hometown and I am not from San Diego, also it was an emergency (obviously). In the end, he told me he would give me a referral but it was not his problem that my insurance would not pay for it. In the future, I would rather make the trip home then see Dr. Mostamand.

Review of Dr. Varon

-San Diego, CA |

I chose Dr. Varon to be my surgeon due to her expertise in fibroid surgery. I had a full hysterectomy due to extremely large fibroids that were causing pelvic pain, frequent urination, heavy menstruation. My surgery went very well. I was at UCSD Medical Center two nights and had no complications. I am now six weeks post-surgery and I feel so much better! Thank you Dr. Varon !
