What People Say About Dr. David Vargas, MD
Reply
I gave Dr. Vargas a poor rating due to the following 1) did not detect a hemorrhoid during colonoscopy which was present at base of anus, 2) had a visit with him a month later to confirm the hemorrhoids, which he did, then performed a hemorrhoid banding while still on the bed without any consultation. I had no idea what banding was. Had to do own research. From what I read this procedure should have been done after a cleaning process. Because this wasn't done I am now dealing with an infection.
