Yikes - steer clear of this whole clinic. Dr. Varhola misdiagnosed me with a serious disease I didn't have because she didn't follow proper CDC testing guidelines. She just didn't know what she was doing, and she never took the time to research further. She treated me for the disease, and for three weeks I was scared and upset and she couldn't answer questions about why my test results weren't making sense. I went to a disease specialist who looked at Varhola's records and said it looked like my diagnosis and treatment were "totally bogus and misinformed." She tested me properly and determined that I'd never had the disease in the first place. This second doctor was so put out by my misdiagnosis and mistreatment that she called the county to report it and told county investigators it was an egregious example of what can go wrong when doctors are misinformed about testing protocol. This is now a legal case. I understand that doctors make mistakes sometimes, but the fact that Varhola knew test results weren't lining up and just shrugged and said she didn't know repeatedly - instead of doing the right research, means that she's lazy to the point of putting patients at risk. Proper CDC testing protocol was just a Google search away, and she let me suffer for weeks with questions unanswered. Not to mention the fact that I had to endure getting ridiculous big injections three times (and side effects) for a disease I never even had. She's horrendous! Steer clear of this lazy, uneducated quack.

Amazing doctor. Had my daughter in May of 2013 and during my pregnancy I had 3 eye surgerys. She was so great that she kept in contact with my eye doctor/surgen just to releave any unwanted stress. She is such an amazing doctor I would recommend her to my friends and family. Thank you Dr. Varhola for being so awesome

I was very blessed to have Dr. Varhola deliver my baby (May 2012). She was very supportive during my pregnancy and always went the extra mile to bring me comfort as I was experiencing a lot of paranoia after having a previous miscarriage. Dr. Varhola was very respectful with my pregnancy/labor choices and never pressured me into anything I was not comfortable with. I was greeted with a smile on every appointment and her bedside manner was outstanding. She gave me great encouragement during labor and pushing and was very knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend Dr. Varhola to all my family and friends. I had a very memorable experience and I'm very thankful.

I would not reccommend Dr. Varhola. She is unexperienced and didn't seem to care about my well being. I was 7 months pregnant, experiencing pre-term labor contractions and she didn't care about the pain or risk to my pregnancy. After asking her countless times to be placed on disability, she refused to acknowledge that I was having pre-term labor contractions. She was to lazy to fill out a form so that I could be placed on leave, instead, she required that i continued to work until I delivered. She was so inexperienced that she didn't even know my baby was breached. Ultimately, i fired her 1 day before my water broke. I ended up delivering 6 weeks early and my baby was a premie. Luckily my baby was healthy, although a bit small. If anything would have happened to my baby, i swear i would have filed a malpractice lawsuit against her. STAY AWAY FROM HER.
