Dr. Vijungco and his staff are remarkable people to me. I have had swelling leg andd ankle problems for several years now. I was seeing a vein doctor in CO and she just sent me to a therapist. After much testing by Dr. Vijungco and his staff, they found an artery blockage above my left knee and I am awaiting surgery. Now at least I know what my problem is. He went very in-depth and was very thorough as was his MA, Nicole. Thanks you guy.

Dr. Vijungco is THE BEST. If any “improvement”, it would be to be more relaxed when communicating with patient. The technicians are very qualified and office in general is efficient. The P.A. (Nicole) is fantastic! Any improvement needed? Yes. The scheduling gal seems TOO BUSY. It used to be Vicky would be on top of it all! Now, it’s almost a week since post-op clearance, and I still have not heard from Kaylee. But I am so very pleased that Dr. Vijungco is my Vascular Surgeon!

I would highly recommend Dr. Vijungco for vascular issues. He is knowledgeable, compassionate and listens to his patients. His staff is phenomenal. They accommodate your needs and I am not waiting a month to have an issue addressed. They are all competent, concerned and friendly. My wait time checking in is less than 1 0 minutes.

Dr V shares his medical knowledge of my case in layman terms for my better understanding.

Our relationship has built my trust and confidence in his ability to treat and care for me as the best vascular doctor and surgeon in the area. His dedication is reflected in his tenacious efforts to help me be the best I can possibly be.

Dr. Vijungco performed a 7 hour operation on my father many years ago, saving his leg. Sometimes we get a call to reschedule our appointment, but I completely understand because he has to go save another patient's leg. I would not have taken my father or anyone in my family to anyone else.

My husband had a horrible experience with this surgeon. He is very arrogant, blunt and highly defensive if questioned about his surgical ability and experience. Not very comforting or personable. We would never recommend him to anyone.

I would NOT go to any of these offices!! The surgery scheduler Kailey never gets back to you, I have waited 3 mo for a procedure that should have only taken 1 mo. They schedule surgeries with NO authorization just because they want to fill up the schedule! Then you get stuck with a $15,000 bill!! They leave you on hold for 20 to 30 minutes at a time because they are always so short staffed!! This place is awful and Dr. Vijungco is rude and never makes time for his patients!! Nicole is AWESOME!!

Arrived to see man (80s) sitting in wheelchair in sun (100s). He didn't want to be in freezing AC & was left unattended in sun instead of shade. Staff x2 never introduced themselves - name or title - asked elderly pt with dementia what he weighed. Told unknown staff person not to chart, he doesn't know you need to weigh him. She responded, "It doesn't matter I just need to put in something." Which reflected 11 lb weight loss in 7 days. NO washing of hands before/after, no wound assessment etc.

Dr. Vijungco is a great Doctor with a wonderful staff at the Mesa location, but with the exception of Jackie, front desk clerk at the Chandler office. I interacted with Jackie on several occasions and she always sounds irritated and annoyed... she appears concerned about your situation, but will not follow through or call back patients when she clearly says she will... Not very trust worthy!

Dr. Vijungco is a great doctor! I was referred to him by a foot doctor. Vijungco examined the dark spots on my legs and explained it. He said to wear compression stockings whenever I am up and out. One of his nurses got my sizing and gave me stockings (which can be ordered either through his office or on Amazon). The stockings have significantly faded the dark spots. He suggested that I have the surgeries since I am young. He is serious and straight to point. I spent more time with his nurses.

Dr. Vijungco explained the procedures to repair a large abdominal aortic aneurysm, found during a routine CT scan by my primary doctor, and put my wife and I at ease before the procedure. After the endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair I am recovering very well thanks to their excellent care. Thank you Dr. Vijungco.
