What People Say About Dr. Alfred Vargas, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Vargas was did a wonderful job proving care for me during my recent issue and surgery. Did a great job with my surgery and follow-up. The only issue I had was the office staff not doing there job in a timely matter. Having them fill out FMLA paperwork for my employer was a joke. It took several calls and promises from them it would be filled out and it wasn't. They had paperwork for almost 20 days before it was completed. Not to mention they charged me $25 fee upfront to process and still had issues. Wanted to call credit card company and reverse the charge. Was not impressed with the office staff and some of the employees. Was told by one she did not have time to fill out paperwork and will get it done someday. Another 20 days I asked?

Very knowledgeable, explains diagnosis and treatment options fully, listens carefully. I escorted my father and was very impressed. His entire staff from front desk, lab tech, assistant and scheduling are all well-trained. Each person we encountered was friendly, efficient, and kind Kudos
