Always a great experience once you see the doctor. The only negative is the consistently long wait time (45 minutes to an hour and 45 min) after the appointment time.

Dr. Varlotta is honest, caring and spot on with his diagnosis. He took time to listen. I was his patient about 5 years ago. He took great care of me then. With my current condition, Dr. Varlotta was the first and only doctor I thought of seeing.

I went to Dr. Varlotta 6 or so years ago and he is just as professional, understanding and (I'm sure) as competent as he was then. I look forward to a quick recovery with therapy as happened before.

Never gives up! If one treatment doesn’t make me feel better Dr Varlotta will keep trying other methods until he finds what relieves my pain the best. I’d never switch. There is no one more dedicated !

Dr Varlotta’s commitment to my care has helped me find hope in the darkest time when other doctor’s overlooked my symptoms. He didn’t give up until we found a solution that helped the pain I have learned to live with. He has given me a new lease on life and I cannot say where I would be without Dr. Varlotta. I highly recommend this practice.

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."
