My son and I both think that Dr Vergara is awesome! He is no nonsense, direct and to the point. He also has a dry sense of humor which I totally get and appreciate! My son is an active athlete so we probably see him more than your average 11 year old because of various sports related concerns. He always listens and I never feel rushed when we're there. He always makes my son feel very relaxed and comfortable - I highly recommend Dr Vergara.

Awful. Totally dismisses your concerns and intuition. Bullies rather than explains on things like the HPV vaccine. Horribly arrogant. No bedside manner.

Went here as a kid. His office diagnosed me with pneumonia, treated me and ordered an xray. He ‘read’ the xray and said I was totally fine. I cried, saying I didn’t feel fine. He yelled that I needed a psychiatrist. Went to pulmonologist, who read the same xray; he saw a clear amount of fluid and treated me for another week or so. Another instance, he made up a theory that I faked foot pain to get out of soccer (i remember; i didn’t ). I’m in my twenties now, would never send my children to him.
