About Dr. Vardakis, D.O.

Why Gastroenterology?

To be an excellent gastroenterologist, you have to be an excellent internist. To figure out what's going on with the patient, you need to know the patient's co-morbidities, which influence the differential diagnosis. You also need to know what's going on from a mental standpoint, as there is a significant mind-gut axis. In addition, I like the procedural aspect of GI, as it allows me to be part of a team that can help save lives from life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeding, bleeding, biliary obstruction, etc. And lastly, even though it is the hardest part of my job, it allows me to let patients know in a very compassionate way that they have cancer. I don't think my profession is a job but rather a calling I have been privileged to be a part of for over 30 years.

What Can Patients Expect?

I will not be seeing patients in the office. I will only be performing outpatient procedures. Any follow-up office visits will be scheduled with either a physician or nurse practitioner within the practice.

Interests outside of Patient Care?

  • Family
  • Grandkids
  • Golf and all racquet sports (tennis, racquetball and pickleball)
