      I am shocked to see the negative reviews. Dr. Argoud and his daughter Maria are two of the most caring doctors I have ever had. Their office is bright and cheerful with an ocean theme. It smells fresh and inviting. The staff is always kind and friendly, willing to do everything they can to accommodate my schedule. Dr. Argoud has been my doctor for 5 years now. I am so pleased to be his patient.

      Was seen by his daughter who is a PA in his office. She was extremely sexist & condescending, utterly unprofessional, implying hormone issues related to hot flashes & night sweats, were in my mind & caused by anxiety, without every doing a blood draw or measuring my levels. I will never go to this office again.

      I was referred to Dr. Argoud's office Dec 11, 2019, but I didn't know the referral had been submitted since they never called me. At the end of December, I saw the referral and decided to wait to call until the end of the holidays. As of Jan 3, 2020, I have never received a call from their office. After looking at his reviews, I called my Dr. and asked for another referral, which I got. I called Tricare to get the Dr. changed, and that's when I found out Dr. Argoud's office had been faxed my referral at the beginning of December. No thank you!!! I ended up with peripheral neuropathy the last time I didn't check out a doctor, plus his reviews are not good with respect to patient's time. Nope!

      Only got to see the doctor once and then was shuffled off to the care of nurse practitioners who weren’t given any protocol for my specific disease. I took it upon myself to read medical journals , because my symptoms were not subsiding with the medicine I was prescribed by Nurses . I requested to see MD again and try to get to the bottom of it, and was told that it’s his policy to only see new patients. I learned by reading about my disease that I was not getting the specific blood tests that are required to get a full picture of how to properly proceed in my care. And also the testing should of been done much more frequently due to the aggressive nature of it. I finally got fed up after I learned that I knew more about my medical condition then the people in charge of me. I got a new referral after calling my insurance and was told I am not the first one to complain. New Doctor reviewed my case and I was getting 1/2 the dose, I had been needing all along. And wrong medicine type.

      Dr. Argoud is so impolite and he doesn't care about his patient at alllll he never answer any of my questions and he kept ignoring me because he was on his computer and he forgot that i am the patient and he needs to listen to me and do his job by diagnosing me. The medication that he gave me don't do any good, and when i told him that he said he cant do anything about it, he didn't even consider to try or request any other solutions. He is extremely rude and very unprofessional. STAY AWAY

      Dr. Argoud was extremely impolite to the point where I was in tears as soon as he left the room. He wouldn't even look at me when I tried talking to him. I felt like he didn't even see me as a person but just some paperwork he had to do for the day. He didn't explain to me what lab work he wanted done. I would have been fine with that if he at least gave me the paperwork to give to the lab. I tried asking the receptionist if she knew what he wanted. She was kind enough to ask him but wasn't able

      Dr. Argoud’s staff does not care about the health of their patients. The staff continually is making mistakes with prescription and lab orders and they are never available when you need them

      He was so rude to me and my mother. He interrupted us multiple times. He had terrible bedside manner and no knowledge of my endocrine condition (that has since been diagnosed by another specialist). When I tried to tell him about the three years I've spent going doctor to doctor without answers to my illness, and told him all the things I've learned and the research I've done, he said, "No, I'M the endocrinologist." Your limited knowledge is wrong and outdated.

      I have been a patient of Dr. Argoud and his PA. They have zero bedside manner and tell you the worst case scenario first. He spends most of the time on his computer instead of taking the time to talk to you as a person and thoroughly go through all aspects of your condition and what steps can be taken. I would NEVER suggest this doctor and I am beyond surprised that he is affiliated with SHARP. Please beware.

      He let an ongoing prescription laps and did not inform me why. When I tried to get a hold of him multiple times, I was put on hold, sent to voice mail, sent to get blood work to addresses that didn't exist, left in the lurch until I found a new doctor that would fill my diabetic prescription. Terribly unethical and incredibly bad communication.
