My daughter is a work in process with trying to correct her vision. The provider has not only been incredibly helpful but also very encouraging with progress or things that need to be adjusted. Bonus she's really great with my daughter.

Dr. Varela was excellent. Despite my poor experience, she is the reason I will continue care with CCMC. I would highly recommend her.

The Dr was absolutely amazing as well. She was so informative and helped explain things to me that I didn't know. She also made my son feel very comfortable and was so patient with him and all his wiggles and questions.
