Dr. Varela treated my Mother with excellent kindness. She had 2 surgeries in one day. He treated her like an individual and not a number. Knowing my Mom was in such great hands put my mind at ease.

Doctor Varela treated my husband during a long illness. Because my husband's illness was extended we had a lot of contact with him. He was always patient and went above and beyond what a surgeon normally does. He made sure my husband had the resources he needed to have a chance to get well. He performed three surgeries on my husband. My husband and I both found him to be an excellent surgeon and a very good person on top of that. He gave us hope during a very difficult time.

A Doctor that truly knows his job and is fantastic at it! From the first appointment to the follow up after my surgery I am happy with him and his team. Side note I wanted to also say that I just love the girls at the front desk, they are so sweet and truly wonderful people

From the first appointment to the many follow up appointments Dr Varela has been very helpful, caring, knowledgeable and comforting. Response time was great. I'd definitely refer him to family.

Dr Varela is a little bit strict but he does an excellent job with surgery. I had 4 inches of my colon removed for colon cancer. He saved my life. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a surgery.

Not very personable at all. Dismissed all my concerns straight away. Nothing got done. it was a pointless appointment. I will never recommend him nor will I be returning. I originally did not want to make an appointment with him, I originally wanted dr moesinger. but felt forced into it by the male receptionist that schedules appointments. Dr moesinger was a couple weeks out and tried telling the receptionist I want to look up reviews on varela but he seemed very pushy in me scheduling with him

Dr. Varela told me he didn't believe me when I told him what the Instacare Doctor had said about my condition. He also didn't believe that I had an allergy to adhesives, and wanted to use my surgery to prove that it was just in my head. He showed absolutely no remorse when I showed up to my post-op appointment with a horrible rash that required a topical steroid (from my regular physician) to contain. He seems very arrogant and I felt like he was talking down to me at every interaction.

Not personable. Asked me what I wanted to do but did not give me options until I asked for some. Kind of rude. I felt like he talked down to me. I will not see him again.
