  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Why We Left This Practice After 10 years ...

In recent years I had been a bit put off by Dr. Vargas' change in bed-side manner. He has lost his zest for caring for children and now it is all about the money. After watching four doctors leave his practice, most lasting about two years, I began to wonder. At a recent visit, when I did not want my daughter to have the HPV vaccine Dr. Vargas ARGUED with me over my choice. He even went so far as to LIE to me stating that HPV can be transmitted via a toilet seat! He obviously was looking for the kickback from the pharmaceutical company for the vaccine. We have since left the practice and he is refusing to give me the medical records that I am requesting for one of my children with a genetic disorder. Even after I offered to pick them up over mailing them.
