What People Say About Dr. Robert Varipapa Sr, MD

I agree Dr Varipapa seems detached and uninterested in helping his patients. I told him I could not take NSAIDS due to my stomach problem, but he gave them to me anyway. It took 4 days for my stomach and intestines to go back to normal. On my follow up visit he said you look good have a good summer. He seems to think that if you look ok you should feel ok. I told him how I look has nothing to do with how I feel. I recommend Dr. Penny, he's GREAT. He listens to his patients.

He seems uninterested in the patients. He has chosen to ignore 90% of my symptoms and chose to focus on 1 even after I explained it is not causing the worst or most frequent pain, after 1 MRI. I need a doctor who at least acknowledges symptoms more thoroughly before deciding on a diagnosis. Also I have experienced, and witnessed with other patients, a strong tendency with the doctor and their staff to disregard or discourage patients asking for more information about treatments & diagnoses.

I developed a condition that had neuro side effects along with pain (RA). Had an abnormal MRI Brain which he ordered a slew of tests which did not resolve the abnormality nor identified it. Still has it. He has no problem ordering tests and MRI's even though there is no change. When I questioned why he basically said don't worry about it, last visit I had new side symptoms, he blew off my questions, said you look good have a good summer. I left there in tears. Staff was like nothing to cry abou

He is detached, uninterested, doesn't put in a real effort and makes decisions without consulting the patient. Had me on meds that were helping my ms symptoms, then took me off them and said go to a therapist to get them? will not go back.

He did not care to see what was wrong with me. He spoke to me as if I were a toddler and made me feel as if what I was experiencing was not worthy of his time. He only agreed to further my treatment if it would make me feel better. As if my concern for my health was not warranted. Horrible experience, so fortunate I never have to see him again.

Seen him 2 times. Will not go back. Could not figure out problem. Seemed to get angry with me because He said I shouldn't have pain where I do after doing 1 MRI. Did no other tests. Very cold, no compassion, no patience. Does not want to 'find' problem. Too much work for him. Appears to be in it for money, not the patients. I say this because he complained to ME that my insurance, Aetna, does not pay him enough for his time and tests. That should not be his or my concern. My health should be.

From what I've read in other reviews and my own experiences it seems that if He is treating something that has a cure, or at least a treatment that works to help manage, people consider him mostly a good doctor. As for everyone who has a problem that has no cure or no definite treatment, then I've noticed in their reviews the same experience we received. He is detached, uninterested, doesn't put in a real effort and makes decisions without consulting the patient or family. Wasting any time left.
