Dr. Argoud's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Argoud "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 (7)

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...more

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...more

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.
