Patient Testimonials

"As an avid boxer and weight-lifter I've had my share of joint injuries. Whenever an injury is severe enough to warrant seeking care, I am always frustrated by how hard it is to find a physician who truly understands the needs of an athlete and the fact that my objective is always to return to optimal performance not just to be pain free. As someone who works with many pro athletes, Dr. Varlotta is one of the first physicians I've worked with who really understands this. He is professional, pleasant, and thorough and very well connected with other top doctors in NYC. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Varlotta to anyone seeking an expert diagnostician who operates in a nice and clean facility with professional and courteous staff."
