What People Say About Dr. Vigel Varkey, MD

I've had some horrible experiences with medical professionals since my accident. Dr. Varkey was a wonderful exception. He listened without judgement. He helped where he could. He offered options, but let me make my own decisions. He didn't push me to get tests I didn't need. I now live far away, which is the only reason he isn't still my PCP. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Varkey is the primary for both my husband and I. He is always kind, knowledgable, and patient. Both my husband and I deal with some lesser known medical conditions, and he has made it a point to not only educate himself thoroughly, but to learn from us and our experiences as well. He is always available when the circumstances are difficult or time sensitive, even going so far as to call in a prescription for us when he was on vacation in Hawaii! Best doctor we've ever had!

I couldn't be happier with Dr. Varkey and his staff. He is knowledgeable, friendly and takes time with his patients. I've had other tests and procedures at other facilities and he always calls to review the results even if I have already received them from the facility directly. I've relocated and live about 45 minutes from the office but commute to see Dr. Varkey.

If I could give more stars I would. Dr Varkey is a rare doctor these days that really cares for his patients. Every time I see him he takes the time needed to be very thorough and proactive with my health. He makes you feel at ease and educates you. I have had to call off hours and calls back so fast even when he does not need to. This is the type of doctor my family and I were always looking for!

Dr. Varkey is an amazing doctor. Nowadays it is very hard to find a person that is honest and takes time to explain every detail. He went above and beyond what I expected. I haven't been to the doctor for quite some time because it seems like whoever I go to, they will never take the time to explain anything. Dr. Varkey explained everything the way it should be explained! I will recommend everybody I will know to him. Thank you!!!!!!

Dr. Varkey and his staff are amazing. He went above and beyond to help me with my medical issues and actually took the time to listen to me and ask questions about my health. My old doctor never did any of that. I finally feel like I have found a doctor who truly cares about his patients and my health issues have gotten so much better. Thank you so much for your help Dr. Varkey!

I thought he was a little too into hearing himself talk. He knew I was there to get a DOT for my job as a school bus driver. He knew two other doctors passed me and he did as well. All it took was the doctor who sis not pass me to give him her opinion, and he rescinded the DOT he gave me and I am no longer a school bus driver. I can't believe he was so easily swayed. Lost all faith in his opinion. He helped to take my job from me.I will not recommended him.
