I had seen Dr. Varela as a pain management doctor but she said she couldn't prescribe me medications without a recent MRI. My MRI had been 4 years old. I jumped through all the insurance hoops to get an MRI which they rejected of course until I first received physical therapy. After a few PT visits, my MRI had been approved. Back to see Dr. Varela and was then told she doesn't prescribe these medications and offered to give me an epidural shot. A liar and a complete waste of time. 2 hr wait.
