Dr. Georges Argoud, MD
San Diego Coastal Endocrinology Group has a 15-year record of dedication to a personalized approach to the medical care for each of our patients. We specialize in the management of Endocrine disorders including thyroid conditions, osteoporosis, and diabetes. Our providers offer up-to-date approaches to diagnosis and treatment with an emphasis on applying approaches based on guidelines in the scientific medical literature. There is a focus on healthy lifestyle modifications and a team approach with investment from the patient and the medical provider to work toward improved health. We strive to develop a game plan for the patient. In other words, we recognize that especially with diabetes, successful outcomes will be elusive without a combined approach involving lifestyle modification as well as appropriately chosen medication. The practice has had an active Clinical Research program during the past decade. For patients interested in clinical research, there are opportunities to participate in trials involving thyroid nodules and new treatments for diabetes. The practice is staffed by Dr. Argoud, a board certified Endocrinologist, Maria A. Argoud PA-C, and Brian T. Marting PA-C. All three providers are dedicated to working closely with patients to achieve improved health outcomes.

Patient Comments (5)
in San Marcos, CA |
Went to Emergency room after his prescription it costs me over 8k $. Very unprofessional and uneducated seems very careless and irresponsible doctor. I'm going to sue him Be aware!
I am sorry you had an adverse effect. I do strive to obtain a medical history related to the Endocrine system , perform an exam, and review results of diagnostic studies on all of my patients. I apply my many years of experience to determine the diagnosis and treatment. My goal is always to try to help the patient find a path to better health and well-being.

Dr. Argoud is very knowledgeable and caring. He is a good listener and addresses all concerns. I highly recommend him.

Consider myself fortunate to have found him.
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.
The patient states that they went to "get blood work to addresses that didn't exist". We only send patients to the major labs in San Diego that have multiple sites (usually with a site close to a patient's home) and that are easily contacted by phone or internet to schedule an appointment or locate an address. We apologize that the patient did not receive the response they deserved and will redouble our efforts to provide excellent and timely service and medical care to all our patients.

Can't get to the dr. Appt with PA who is nice, but if you can't get through the office staff and get an appointment within an appropriate amount of time, what good is it??
We have three providers and two locations in San Diego and are committed to providing access to all patients seeking our medical care. There is a shortage of physicians in our specialty which sometimes makes it challenging to meet expectations for an immediate appointment. We are sorry that we were not able to address this patient's needs and will make every effort to improve appointment availability for our patients.
