Mariela Varis, M.D
Physician - General Practice
Family Medicine Department

Dr. Varis was born and raised in Redlands, California, where she participated in the Great All-American Youth Circus and Kimberly Juniors, as well as her high school honors theater troupe. She then moved to Ohio to obtain her bachelor’s degree in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville while pursuing her pre-med requirements. During and after college, she fostered a love of teaching through formal tutoring as well as organizing study groups. She values the importance of explaining to patients the complex issues they often face, as well as their options for treatment. She attended the University of Florida College of Medicine (Go Gators!) where she thoroughly enjoyed being much closer to her Cuban roots and extended family, before coming back to California for family medicine residency at Ventura County Medical Center. She completed her training in 2021 and joined Rose Ave the same year. While she has many interests within family medicine, she finds the most joy in coaching patients through lifestyle changes, as well as educating and empowering women through instruction on fertility awareness and natural family planning. She looks forward to helping you achieve and maintain wellness, in all its forms!
