“I know the importance of having a good relationship with your physician. Dr. Varlotta is always there to assist you. I truly value his expertise.”
“Dr. Varlotta, Amazing to think that just one year ago I had herniated 2 discs!! Well, I won a bronze medal at Taekwando Nationals this spring in my division. I could not have done it without your extraordinary medical care and total understanding and appreciation for the needs of athletes. I am forever grateful. This medal is in your honor.”
“Dr. Varlotta and his staff were professional and courteous. I thank Dr. Varlotta for helping me during the season and keeping me on the field.”
First let me say that Dr. Varlotta is super sweet - which goes a long way in my book. But what's more important is that before I met him I had been living with terrible neck pain for what seems like an eternity. I assumed it was a permanent condition. I've now been pain free for several months and feel better than ever! I also love that his new office is in midtown. Thanks Dr. V - there are no words!
As an avid boxer and weight-lifter I've had my share of joint injuries. Whenever an injury is severe enough to warrant seeking care, I am always frustrated by how hard it is to find a physician who truly understands the needs of an athlete and the fact that my objective is always to return to optimal performance not just to be pain free. As someone who works with many pro athletes, Dr. Varlotta is one of the first physicians I've worked with who really understands this. He is professional, pleasant, and thorough and very well connected with other top doctors in NYC. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Varlotta to anyone seeking an expert diagnostician who operates in a nice and clean facility with professional and courteous staff.
I have been working with Dr Varlotta on knee arthritis and lower back pain. The treatments he has done have been tremendous in relieving my pain and getting me back to tennis and all my activities. I am very appreciative of his care and expertise. Love his new location. Much more personal attention.
I have been a patient of Dr. Varlotta for more than five years and he has always known the best, and most successful, treatments for my conditions. I highly recommend him. Even my cardiologist sees him!
