Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Varlotta is always right on target with his diagnosis and recommendations. I had not seen him in 5 years but he remembered me as soon as he saw me and all the records I sent over were up on the screen and he had reviewed and we immediately set up a management plan!

I used to see Dr. Varlotta years ago, then a card came in the mail and reconnected. Dr. Varlotta has not changed over the years I didn’t see him, he’s still the same focused patient, take his time with the patient doctor I remembered.

Exam thorough. Looks at all records X-rays mris all the way back. Chats just enough to find out what’s really wrong. Prescriptions for remedies and future appts. Always feel positive when I leave even though I have serious muscular skeletal problems

If I could give zero stars I would. Staff is incredibly rude! They do not relay messages to doctor especially if it is an emergency. Waited 2 hours in the waiting room. Original appointment was at 3 doctor didn’t see me till 5 to give me a cortisone shot. Literally gave me the shot and kicked me out. After the fact I experienced excruciating pain instead of relief and tried calling the doctor for 2 wks with no return phone call.

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."
