Excellent physician. Very caring. Good explanations. In tandem with my oncologist (with whom he meets every Monday), gave me a course of treatment for breast cancer, allowing me to decide which treatment to begin with first after discussing together the pros and cons. Called me at home twice. His staff stayed in close contact, as well. I don't place complete trust in doctors very often; I feel comfortable doing so with Dr. Vargas. Would recommend this surgeon in a heartbeat.

He told me my course of treatment was up to me. Then he changed his mind and waited until my pre-surgery visit to tell me. Worst experience with a doctor I've ever had. Condescending manner. Would not recommend him to my worst enemy.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
