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."

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...more

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...more
