      I was dealing with a knee problem and asked my orhthopedic about foot pain that had been occurring for over two years. He referred me to Dr. Varner. I was very pleased with the professionalism and friendliness of Dr. Varner and his staff. Numerous persons have told me that I was seeing the best doctor for foot surgery. My neurectomy was scheduled promptly and occurred earlier today. I have minimal discomfort and no need for any pain medication. I highly recommend Dr. Varner.

      I've had two ankle surgeries with Dr. Varner (arthroscopic & OATS) and I'm going back for a neuroma surgery. He is EXCELLENT! Very caring, knowledgeable and professional. With that said, it takes a long time to get an appointment. Once you have the appointment, plan on it taking a very long time to get a parking spot in the garage. His support team is great, but they also take a long time to get back to you. It's just the cost of going to one of the best docs, since he has so many patients.

      I had bunion surgery with Dr. Varner and I have been extremely pleased with the results. It was such an easy surgery and I recovered extremely quickly. I have already referred Dr. Varner to many friends and family members.

      I arrived for my first apt. 20 minutes late because valet parking was overwhelmed. Receptionist informed me my appointment was cancelled. I spoke on the phone to Teresa, office manager. She said I should have self parked. I explained that I was a disabled senior citizen and only used valet. She informed me that cancellation was approved by Varner. I believe that she was overstepping her authority and asked to speak with him. She refused. I will not return and go to Texas Orthopedic Hospita

      I recently had bunion surgery with Dr. Varner, and he was excellent! It has been less than a week, and I am pain-free.

      Dr. Varner performed surgery on my son's foot. He is a competitive athlete at the University of Texas so it was imperative that we this issue was taken care of or his athletic career was over. Issue was a Navicular stress fracture. Dr. Varner is the best...hands down. Surgery was over one year ago and foot is perfect and pain free.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
