I was VERY impressed with Dr. Varley. he was so personable and knowledgeable with a wonderful bedside manner. it was our first interview seeing him, we will definitely see him again!
Dr. Varley always takes the time to answer any questions about my child. He always talks to them and I feel he knows my children. I feel very comfortable speaking with Dr. Varley because he knows our family history, he has been our pediatrician for over a decade. My oldest is now 23 and my youngest is 14. He knows how I feel about flu shots (not a fan) and he doesn't pressure me. He does try every year, but doesn't make me feel like I am a terrible person for saying "NO" to the flu shot. I am comfortable with Dr. Varley, but the most important fact is that my CHILDREN are comfortable with Dr. Varley. It is a running joke in our house about Dr. Varley will check to see if Batman and Robin are in the Bat Cave !
Dr. Varley is great and takes his time, answers all questions, is very friendly and is great with the kids!

Dr. Varley is an excellent doctor!
I waited 45 minutes in the exam room to see Dr Varley. I think one of the office staff should have updated me of how far behind he was. I also think he should have acknowledged that he was behind when he came into the exam room

Dr Varley is the absolute best !!!
Dr. Varley is fantastic. It was very important to me that I find a pediatrician who my child could get to know and see for all of his visits, as I did not have that. We chose Dr. Varley because of his great reviews and being within the UPMC network. We are so glad we did! We drive 40 minutes to our appointments, despite having a CCP located closer to us, just to see Dr. Varley.
We first met Dr. Varley when our daughter was born and from the moment we met him, we knew he'd be our first and only choice for our daughter's care. Beyond his medical background, he is grounded and personable. We can express our concerns and questions to him with ease and our daughter responds favorably to him as well. Dr. Varley is the BEST!
Dr. Varley is wonderful with all of my children. He knows each one personally and shows a true interest in both their physical and mental well being. He's the best out there!!

Dr Varley is absolutely wonderful with the children and makes sure the parent fully understands what is going on. We couldn't ask for a better doctor!
absolutely love Dr. Varley but every single time we see him the wait time is excruciating long-especially considereding he is a pediatrician and children don't have patience to sit in a small waiting room nervously waiting to be seen. I understand sometimes emergencies happen and there are times things get backed up but this is each and every time. Patients have to pay if they miss an appointment w/o calling within so many hour of their visit and if they are running late they may not be able to be seen that day because a doctors time is valuable but I think your patients time is just as valuable. Having them sit in a waiting room well past their appointment time doesn't show it.

We love Dr. Varley. He has been treating our children for twenty years. He and Dr. Falcon (at the same practice) have a very warm bedside mannner, they are thoughtful, kind, knowledgeable, and take the time to listen and interact with my children. They treat my children with respect and acknowledge their concerns. I wish my daughter, who has aged out, could continue at this practice.
Dr. Varley is the best! We adore him!
Dr. Varley is always very caring and attentive. He is very good with my child despite my son being very scared of doctors. He does run very behind though so we are generally waiting for a long time for him.
The doctor was friendly and patient with our loquacious five-year-old,good experience overall.
After expressing to a friend that I was going to look for another peditrician group, they asked if I ever saw Dr. Varley and I said no. I made sure to give it one more effort and scheduled my son's 10 year appt. with him. He is exactly the kind of peditrician you want.....humor, no rushing, patient with all the questions.....this is the only doctor I will request now. We moved here three years ago and I was just not impressed with being seen by practitioners and the other doctor.
very nice, concerned and informative

Dr. Varley is a top-notch pediatrician. We have moved a few times and have seen several pediatricians in the past 16 years. Dr. Varley, in my opinion, is the best pediatrician my son has ever seen. His judgement, communication skills and bed-side manors are exceptional. He gave very good life advice for me and my son as he is 16 years old and a young adult. I highly recommend Dr. Varley
Dr. Varley is probably the best doctor but seems a little rushed when I had the boys well check visit.

dr varley is a great physician
Sadly my oldest son passed away realizing this would of course affect the whole family informed me of a program to help. I also received a card of bereavement send to my family. That caring and understanding of the patient as a whole is what good doctoring is to me. I appreciate Monroeville Peds. they have been my pediatricians for 20 years.
Dr. Varley is excellent!

love dr varley....so personable and attentive
We have been coming to this office since my child was born. The staff and providers are always courteous, patient and willing to answer our questions. Our family is satisfied with the care our child receives.
We love seeing Dr. Varley. We're pleased we have someone who is both knowledgeable and kind to provide care for our children.
I called in because my son received quite a bump on the head. I spoke with the nurse, she said she'd speak to the doctor to determine course of action---3 hours later I called back and she said she was still waiting to hear from the doctor. These have been my child's doctors since they were born and I had to wait almost 4 hours to hear about what I should do pertaining to a head injury for my child. We were also taken into the examine room right away but waited almost an hour for Dr. Varley.
I enjoy going to this office, but I don't like feeling pressured into doing something I don't want to do ( mainly being pushed to get my kids a flu shot)
Dr.Varley is always friendly and demonstrates knowledge concerning the best treatment for my children. Any time I call the staff does their best to accommodate me in getting medical treatment for my children. This office has been outstanding in all areas.
Dr. Varley is the most compassionate man. I always feel like I have a family member taking care of my children...from the first time he meets them at the hospital through every visit with all three children over the last almost 8 years I have been a patient. It gives me great peach of mind knowing the health of my kids are in his hands!
