What People Say About Dr. David Vargas, MD
Reply
Not fun when you get an email from your gastroenterologist. Especially when you have 1 1/2 more years before you have to see him again. So I breath deeply and open my email...to see a HAPPY BIRTHDAY message, and its not even my birthday! I almost pooped myself, pun intended! Thank you Dr. Vargas for the birthday wish 3 days early!
