    I had a really bad experience. Both George Vargas and Maria (his assistant) are third world MD healthcare practitioners providing third world healthcare service. Is hard to believe that kind of people are licensed to practice anywhere in the US; he does not only barely expeaks English but shows a total disregard for his patients' needs, needless to say he and his staff could not care less for delivering high level of service and customer satisfaction.

    Horrible staff - they never get back to messages, long wait times, unprofessional and very disorganized. Dr. Vargas himself is subpar and not worth the 1hr + wait and frustration.

    I?ve been a patient of Dr. Vargas for over a year due the him being the only one in my insurer?s network and one of very few in the West Pembroke Pines area. My overall experience has been absolutely terrible and I would recommend him neither to friends nor to family. Not only is he very unprofessional and edging the unethical side but his office staff is very rude and consistently show complete disregard for their patient wellbeing. They are only after getting your money as quick as they can.

    If you want to wait 2 hours in waiting room and another 40 min in the room to be seen this is the place to go. But mind you, they have a whole page in paper work for your credit card info to charge you $50 in case you miss your appointment or cancel it in less than 24hrs in advance. I think that says a lot about doctor. No respect to patients' time. No idea how to run a medical office.
