in Spreckels, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Varav for an epidural for extreme lower back pain and I must say that I have never had such an informative appointment before. He took the time to review all of my recent scans and x-rays, and explained to me the exact reasons that I have so much pain and why there is nothing more that can be done other than pain management. I found Dr. Varav very personable, and very clear and concise in all of his information. I would certainly recommend him to anyone.

I was wheeled into Dr. Varav's office with the (severe) acute pain in my back. After reviewing my MRI he scheduled me for an epidural within 3 days. I am walking again and will always count on Dr. Varav to be there for me if the need arises again. My name is Kathleen Moore I consider him to one of the best Doctors I have ever been to.
