I liked the physician. he had very good bedside manner and I felt like we were heard. he's definitely meant to work with children.
I have always had good experiences.
Dr Varley is very personable and listens to what you have to say when you have concerns about your child or any questions.
was able to get an appointment quickly for my sick child
Dr. Varley is EXCELLENT! He has a great way with kids to make them feel at ease.
My son is nine and wasn't really happy with going for a check up. Dr. Varley related well to him and made him laugh. I think he enjoyed having a male as a doctor.
dr varley is exceptional! he is always so personable with my daughter and makes her feel comfortable during exams.
Dr. Varley in my opinion is one of the best pediatric doctors out there. He listens to what I have to say about all 3 of my children and gives me an honest answer. More important he addresses my kids, he makes them laugh and feel more comfortable being at a doctor's office. I would recommend him to anyone of my friends or family.
Dr. Varley is the BEST. I have complete faith in him =. He is always thorough and talks directly to the child and makes the child feel comfortable. He is always willing to answer questions.
We love Dr. Varley. He is great with kids. He always makes them laugh. He always answers any questions I have and is thorough with his check up.
he took time to ask some extra questions to the child others than the health about school and the sport
Dr. Varely is a wonderful pediatrician! My son is comfortable speaking to him and couldn't stop talking about how much he likes him after his appointment - having a provider that relates to and speaks directly to the child is wonderful and so important - thank you Dr Varley!!!
Dr. Varley is awesome! We recommend him to all of our friends and family.
Dr. Varley took the time to talk with us in detail. We did not feel rushed and truly felt as though he cared.
Dr. Varley has always been an exceptional service provider- he listens, takes his time with both me as a parent and my children. He is patient, he does not rush through visits and is very thorough. He also goes beyond assessing physical needs, but approaches my children's health globally with respect to socio-emotional development and educational progress. Additionally, he facilitates coordination of care from participating agencies if needed or recommended.
We have seen Dr. Varley in the urgent care as well, and have been very pleased with his care!
We love Dr. Varley!
Always a good experience at the office
Dr. Varley is a great doctor. He puts my sons at ease and explains things in a way they can understand him.
love Dr Varley!
Dr Varley is the absolute best!
Dr. Varley is the best!
We were seen on time ( maybe a few minutes early) everyone was pleasant, professional, and helpful.
If I could give Dr. Varley an 11 I would! Our son loves him & we have zero complaints. We trust Dr. Varley and he addresses all of our concerns and we never feel rushed with him. He always gives us advice that makes sense and is very helpful.
I did not realize my child was as sick as she was until the Dr. told me to take her right away to Children's Hospital. The doctor did listen to what I thought was the cause and it turned out to be correct.
my son has profound autism/IDD. he usually sees Dr schott, but he saw Dr varley as a same day appt. my son was very anxious, but Dr varley's bedside manner was great. not all clinicians are like this.
we love Dr. Varley. He is so great with the kids.
We are always satisfied with the care our children receive at CCP Monroeville. The physicians know exactly what our children's needs are because they understand our family history. All staff at CCP Monroeville are knowledgeable, kind, and exemplify a sense of urgency during particular times when our children have been in dire situations.
Dr. Varley is wonderful. He is so good with my kids and is always very nice. He is very knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease.
Dr Varley is excellent! His bedside manner with children is amazing and puts my kids at ease as soon as he walks in the door.
Dr. Varley is amazing!! he goes above and beyond!
Dr. Varley is great. Wouldn't take my son anywhere else.
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!
love Dr. Varley. he is excellent with the kids and also the parents!
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 !
appreciated the referral for a specialist to make sure we were being proactive with her medical condition.
Dr. Varley is great and takes his time, answers all questions, is very friendly and is great with the kids!
We have seen Dr. Varley for the past 23 years and loved every minute! He is a wonderful, caring doctor that is working in a great office. I would recommend him and the practice to everyone!
I think Dr Varley is amazing. He is extremely kind and helpful. He spends time with his patients and does not make me feel rushed. My kids look forward to our well visit check ups because of how he is with them. I cannot thank him enough for everything he does for our family.
very personable, calming for my child, caring, and professional
we love Dr Varley!! Best care ever!
Dr. Varley is an excellent doctor. My son has been seeing him for years. He is very professional, courteous, knowledge, helpful, and friendly.
Dr. Varley has been our family pediatrician for 22 years. He is awesome.
Great provider, extremely pleased by his demeanor and respect for my husband and me. Addressed every concern/question calmly, with helpful info, and without judgement. Mood was light and stress-free. will be seeing him again as our newborn's primary pediatrician going forward.
Dr. Varley is an excellent doctor!
All good. Dr, Varley and all the providers have always been very professional and helpful.
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
very nice, down to earth, easy to talk to provider.
Dr. Varley is excellent and one of the best doctors I have met in my lifetime.
Dr. Varley seemed very competent and professional. Very friendly and personable also.

Dr. Varley shows compassion and care to my child to ensure his comfort ability. it makes for a more informative well visit. Dr. Varley listened to each of our concerns. Dr. Varley is the best doctor!!!
Dr. Varley has exceptional interpersonal skills - my children feel at ease when seeing him. he is great at having difficult conversations and does so in a comforting and supportive way.
Dr. Varley was very interested and knowledgeable about my son's health. He didn't hesitate on questions I asked and he was very friendly to me and my son. he washed his hands before and after the visit and knocked on the door before entering and made sure my son's privacy was intact!! I would definitely recommend Dr. Varley to any parent. He knows his field and is great with kids!
office wait time way too long. after getting into the exam room - we waited for 30 minutes to see the dr.
We always get the best of care from Dr. Varley.
dr Varley is the sweetest man in the world. He talks to the kids in a fun way and has cute little nick names for each girl and my girls love when he says he sees Mac n cheese in their ears. so caring and so nice. we love him!
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.
Dr Varley is the absolute best !!!
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!!
Monroeville CCP is the best. As always, thank you.
visits are always pleasant. the staff are wonderful and kind. we cant say enough good things about this practice. we always get thorough answers and explanations, and are never left feeling as though something has gone without being checked.
Dr Varley is excellent with our son! He makes him laugh and feel safe.

Dr Varley is exceptional every single time.
We had a great visit! Dr. Varley is always so knowledgeable and nice!
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.
This is the first time we saw this Doctor and he was Amazing!!!

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.
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.
The doctor was friendly and patient with our loquacious five-year-old,good experience overall.
very nice, concerned and informative
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.
We love Dr. Varley!! He's wonderful with my daughter and she's familiar with him. Personable and friendly! Overall, a great doctor!

We LOVE Dr. Varley! He is very knowledgeable, has a great rapport with my child and myself, takes the time to answer my many questions. I dread the day my kids are too old to go to Dr. Varley's practice!
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 wonderful with our daughter. He makes her feel comfortable and makes the appt enjoyable for her. Can't say enough good things about him!
