Dr. Varela founded Northwest ENT and Allergy in February 2007 to provide easily accessible, community-based ear, nose, throat and allergy care for the entire family. He enjoys seeing a wide variety of general otolaryngology problems, and his particular interests are pediatric and adult allergy, sinus, sleep and swallowing disorders.
In his free time Dr. Varela enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters. They enjoy spending time in the outdoors and all the great food, music and cultural events the Portland area has to offer. Playing guitar, traveling, beer home-brewing, college sports, and gardening are some of his other interests.
