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."

I feel fortunate to have been referred to Dr.Varlotta who really listened to me when I felt there was a change in my level of pain. He was able to appreciate my symptoms and within a reasonable amount of time had developed a plan of care. I have referred him to colleagues who have also found him to be an excellent provider. His staff is very attentive and quick to respond to calls and follow-up visits.

This physician is a superior in every respect. Diagnosis, treatment, and follow up are far better than most of my other experiences. I'm fortunate to enjoy care from several excellent doctors, and Dr. Varlotta stands at the top of the list.

I was suffering from a broken facet cyst of my L4-5. It was Christmas, and all my doctors were on vacation. I was in horrible agony. I had spoken with the doctors office before, but they originally were booked and could not see me for weeks. When my pain got so bad I called everyone and anyone I could think of. I spoke with David Dr Varlotta's assistant and he could hear in my voice the terrible pain. He got me into the office that day, and I have been a faithful patient ever since.

I have a very complex body and many pain problems. Dr. Varlotta has not only sent me to the best physial therapists but has also been able to treat my neuromuscular pain problems when others couldn't.

Called the office and explained that I was in excruciating pain. I would be driving in from the island. Braved the trip only for the doctor to walk away and his rude office manager to tell me that he has a conference and is done for the day. Another time waited for 2+ hours in his office for him to have lost my records and his fix was to send me for more MRIs. After the MRI his office scheduled an injection, drove in from the island only to learn that he hasn't even reviewed the MRIs.

Dr. Varlotta has healed me when others had not been able to make accurate diagnoses or provide successful treatments. After my first visit, I was pain free a short time later. He listens, understands and synthesizes symptoms resulting in accurate diagnoses and useful treatment.
