Dr. Vargas is so patient, listens and understands! He is very knowledgeable of depression and other illnesses that can cause depression. He is very knowledgeable about supplements and things that are good for your health. I have learned so much from him and have changed my life for the best! I would recommend ANYONE to come to Dr. Vargas as I think he is the best! My sister introduced me to him as she is his patient and her health was improved greatly so I decided to seek his wonderful care.

Dr. Vargas is very demeaning and actually made me cry while I was in his office. He seemed very annoyed when I was being honest about my life experiences. After a while, I started to sugar coat my true emotions just so that he wouldn't make me feel bad during the appointment. I ended up switching to another doctor because I couldn't handle it anymore.

Dr. Vargas is a very caring and compassionate man. He is extremely knowledgeable and I feel he takes excellent care of his patients. Dr. Vargas really listens to his patients and their needs. I have been seeing psychiatrists since 1986 and he is the BEST one I have ever been to see. I have recommended friends to Dr. Vargas and all of them have been very pleased also. As long as Dr. Vargas is practicing I will be his patient.
