Dr. Argoff was treating me for both migraines and fibromyalgia. He would not let you discuss both issues at one appointment. You needed separate appointments. That's some disgusting money grubbing. Look up the amount of drug company money for yourself and ask yourself if he can possibly treat you in an ethical and unbiased way. I left after a year. Of failed treatments, I might add.

EXCELLENT!

Can't get any better dr. then him!!! I've been seeing him for a LONG time now, like OVER 8 yr. He's helped me tremendously and I KNOW he KNOWS what he's doing UNLIKE some of these other quacks out there!!! I'd ALWAYS recommend him to ANYONE! I LOVE his sense of humor and he perks me up when I'm not well. He does NOT like to give out Allot of meds and I'm VERY HAPPY about that! I think many want to see him just to get meds! This is NOT the approach he takes!!! So if you want that, then try another dr. as you Won't get that from him!!! I think he's an awesome dr. and I'd go ANYWHERE to see him for my health issues!! He SURELY KNOWS what he is doing for a dr.!!!!! His knowledge on things is phenomenal!

Wonderful, Listened to me, Came up with a solution..

I have to say after reading all the bad reviews on Dr. Argoff that i was unsure if i wanted to go to my appointment today but i did go and i am thrilled that i did. He came in was very nice, introduced himself, He already looked over all of my my medical problems and medicines i am on so he had a good overview of what was going on with me.. He came straight out and said he wasnt comfortable with putting me on more medications for my problem, I told him i didnt want to be on any more med's , I was looking for a different approach for my pain. We talked about the Botox approach and we both agreed that it was right for me and now i go back next week for my first injections. I am very pleased.. Personally i don't have a clue why there are so many 1 star ratings but maybe because there are people that are looking for pain meds for their pain and Doctors are not as willing to give them out and now want to use other methods. I believe the other methods are better personally.. I would recommend him to anyone currently, I go back in a week and then i will adjust this if needed..
