Waynesville, NC |
without going into a lot of history, this doctor should have hr license revoked. I was treated like a drug addict looking for narcotics, when I explicitly said I was looking for alternative treatment. I tried to see her again for osteoporosis treatment and she wouldn't even consider seeing me. Don't see this doctor!

Dr. Vargo listened to complicated history,did thorough history and examination, explained tentative diagnosis with prognosis, prescribed medications, did x ray and labs on site. She spent time answering questions and developing treatment plan. The only problem is she is so busy that a follow up appt could not be made by front staff and would be handled when cancellations occur...assurances were given that timely follow up would occur.
