Dr Varnavas took the time to examine my condition, laid out the options available and I chose for him to perform a lamectomy on my L4 in July 2016. He is very professional, his staff and the hospital were great. I would highly recommend Dr. Varnavas to family and friends
Lee, Thank you for the positive review! We appreciate the feedback and are pleased to partner with you in your healthcare. Sincerely, Dr. Varnavas and staff

My husband is a 'no nonsense', matter of fact type person. He appreciated this physician's directness. Surgery went extremely well, recover was quick. Home the day following surgery..minimal pain. Over a year since surgery and continues to be pain free.
in Yakima, WA |
Was good till after surgery with something didn't feel right. When I asked him he rushed me out of my appointment with him. Now I'm suffering even more then I did before the surgery and now have scoliosis because he didn't do my surgery procedure all the way to make sure my spine was fully supported
We strive to provide excellent service and patient care. While we haven't been able to contact you personally and learn more details, given the opportunity, we would like to learn more about your experience. Please reach out to the office at your convenience. Sincerely, Dr. V 855-260-2225
