    I believe Dr. Verela has gone above and beyond what his job asks to provide me with great care

    Experienced on Apr 04, 2018

    Dr. V. was awesome. He calmed my fears about the surgery and was very personable.

    Pretty impersonal interaction.

    Experienced on Dec 18, 2017

    He needs to be more aware of what the patient is saying. I didn't feel like he paid attention to anything I was saying or how I felt. And he was just very disrespectful and he really did not listen to any of my concerns or any of my problems with my health.

    I was really impressed with this young man, I trusted him immediately, I wish he could be the surgeon for my surgery but if he can't make it over to salt lake, thank you bye.

    Experienced on Nov 27, 2017

    He was great. He listened, he was there on time. I didn't have any problems. He made me feel very comfortable. I don't have any complaints about him.

    Experienced on Nov 06, 2017

    I really think this survey you're taking right now is too soon! Because all I had was a short consultation, and I, he hasn't done any surgery on me yet. So I think it's a little too soon to make any of my comments terribly useful. Thanks.

    Provider seemed a little bit disinterested in what he was doing. A little distant from the situation.

    Experienced on Oct 04, 2017

    Dr. Varela was very helpful in treating my daughter ,period. I was very happy with his service, period.

    Experienced on Sep 18, 2017

    I feel that he did a very good job operating on me and I'm very grateful.
