This week, we’re joined by Dr. Vigel Varkey of Varkey Medical for a discussion on weight loss.
Born and raised in NYC to immigrant parents from Kerala, India. He started his higher learning by attending Rutgers University. While attending Rutgers, Dr. Varkey was made aware of an opportunity to study medicine in Europe which sounded like a fantastic opportunity to begin his dream of becoming a physician. He left Rutgers to attend medical schools in Debrecen, Hungary and Katowice, Poland where he received his MD.
On his return, Dr. Varkey did both his internship and residency with St Vincent’s Catholic Medical Center (Brooklyn-Queens Program). He spent the next year working in Long Island area before deciding he would pursue better opportunities in the Tampa Bay area. Dr. Varkey spent the next 9 years working for a large primary care group in the New Port Richey area.
Knowing the needs of the area, he decided to open his own practice and treat his patients with this in mind. He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine. Dr. Varkey also has some proficiency in medical Spanish to communicate with the Spanish speaking population.
Inspiring better health and a strong patient-doctor relationship are fundamentals of what he is trying to create. We welcome you to become part of this team and join us on this fantastic adventure.
