About Me

Care Philosophy

I believe that vascular operations should be presented to a patient in a compassionate, ethical, & responsible manner. Instead of going to the operating room with anxiety, I believe a patient should go to the operating room with 100% confidence.

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.
