I went to see Dr. Varraux do to some problems with my breathing and chest discomfort. He was real nice and thoughtful about my symptoms and explained everything to me in a very courteous and professional way. The thing that impressed me so much, is that he was looking at me and not at the computer like most of the doctors used to do nowadays. I felt at ease and much, much better after talking to him. I've been working in a medical field for so many years and know when I'm talking to a good Dr. and he's exceptional, a real gem. I'm so glad I found him and I recommend him to anybody who needs real professional care. I'm really impressed by his bedside manners. Thanks so much to Dr. Varraux and his personnel for their amazing care!!!

He saw my mother at the hospital after she had been there for two weeks. He started my recapping what my mother had been through in the last week. Came at 940pm one night and 9pm the other. I felt like he wanted to make sure he was in on putting his name in for Medicare. Pass on this guy.

My husband his first appointment on 07/09/2018 with Dr. Varraux, and noticed that the bedside manner was very professional. He was willing to sit and talk with my husband for a few minutes. The only down side is the wait time to be seen but the staff is very personable and professional. They take the time to make sure all the patients are seen and taken care of.

This doctor almost killed me. I had to go to the ER because he gave me medication that I was allergic to and I almost died from a severe asthma attack. His staff is rude and he has the bedside manners of a Cyberman.

I was beyond impressed with my experience at Dr. Varraux office. My first contact was with the receptionist and I was completely blown away with her helpfulness. A lot of doctors don’t realize how important it is to have great administration. The first point of contact is crucial! My appointment ran a little late, but Dr Varraux was really knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable throughout the appointment! It was with out a doubt worth the commute and wait!

Waited over 2 hours for my appointment. I was scheduled as the first appointment of the day. The office staff said Fr Varraux never comes in on time. In addition, Fox news was blaring (very loud) in the reception area the whole time.

This is my 2nd review and I wish I could take back my 1st review. Dr. Varraux prescribed me 11 new meds all at once and now I'm dealing with more health issues than before due to side effects and interactions with all the meds. I stopped seeing him in June and will never go back. He did more harm than good. I ended up in the hospital due to one medication that left me with a serious potassium deficiency that could have killed me. I'm done with this guy!

Had I known about the excessive waiting times and the unresponsiveness of the doctor and his staff, I would NEVER have started treatment here. The wait is ALWAYS three hours or more. That's absolutely nuts.

Four hour wait in his office only to learn he decided not to come in to the office today. Took two weeks to review pulmonary tests and did so only after my complaint.

Well,I'm a brand new patient and I have to be honest, I absolutely hate waiting 3 hours to see any doctor, but I'm glad I did! I was struggling every day to breathe and waited patiently out of desperation. There is a long wait because he is a good doctor that actually talks to his patients and listens to what they need. I would have waited twice as long to see him. I saw Dr. Varraux on a Monday and by Wednesday I felt like a new person! I'm very grateful and will definitely see him again.
