Great Doctor, Horrible Staff

I really like Dr. Varner. She is very professional and caring, and took plenty of time with me and answered all my questions. After seeing several doctors before finding her, she was the first doctor genuinely interested in finding out what was the source of my sudden health condition. The other doctors I'd seen before becoming her patient had either scheduled a bunch of tests and then when not able to give proper diagnosis said said it was all in my head, there was nothing else they could do, and I should just get use to my new normal; or told me they'd never seen my condition before and then prescribed medication to treat the symptoms, wished me good luck and sent me on my way. Although the wait once in her office was long I didn't mind because I knew she was giving her other patients the same time courtesy as she gave me. Aside from Dr. Varner personally, I was completely dissatisfied with her staff. Her nurse assistant is unapologetically horrible at responding or following up with the patients on every level. It literally took her 6 months and 4 messages before she called me back. The other office staff are very nice and courteous. However, Dr. Varner's appointments are booked 4-6 months out, so do not cancel if you can help it. Even so, my appointment was rescheduled 8 times by her staff due to her being out of the office, and the natural weather.flooding issues we had here in Houston in 2015 so they were trying to accommodate the patients that were scheduled on those days. So after two years or being rescheduled over and over, and never getting to see her. I ended up having to find another neurologist. So, if you can get in to see her....do it! Just be prepared for a wait (in office and to get appointment).

Dr. Varner's office - poor communication / follow through

I liked Dr. Varner, personally. But the lack of communication and follow-through was astoundingly poor. I had to get a new doctor.

First of all, you have to wait a decade to be seen, that is if you can ever get an appointment. Oh, and if you are so ever lucky to be seen by the one and only "Dr. Varner", and do get prescribed medication hopefully it works and doesn't cause your organs to shut down because of lack of monitoring/follow-up. She is way to busy to see anyone twice a year! So if you are looking for a long term doctor -who will follow-up, monitor your medication closely,she is not the one for you.

I just adore this doctor. I have been seeing her for 10 years. I even travel to the medical center just to see her since relocating her practice. She always goes above and beyond, no matter what it takes in order to find a solution to the problem. I can't say this with doctors these day.
