Dr Vargas is the best she is so knowledgeable. I was a patient before I got pregnant and she was excellent during my pregnancy. She was very knowledgeable on where to keep my dose to make sure my newborn came out healthy.

Dr. Vargas is an astute, professional, and wise physician. She is aware of the importance of mental health playing a major part in physical health. Let her do the talking, don't interrupt, listen, and take her advice to heart. Don't be afraid to ask questions or have her explain bloodwork results in detail. She is one of the best physicians in Norwich, in my humble opinion.

Dr. Vargas has a no-nonsense, straightforward approach to dealing with patients. She presents the facts precisely and does not hesitate to let you know where you're falling down on your end. Some people find her "bed-side" manner somewhat rough, but she has always communicated with me very well. When I leave her appointment, I understand, as much as we can work out together, exactly where I'm at with my treatment. Mine is a very complicated situation which she tries to help me understand.
