Dr. Vargas has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've visited. He spends as much time as needed with each patient and you never feel rushed. He is kind, caring, and reassuring. He has lots of experience and is very knowledgeable with current technology and practice. His nursing and office staff are also very kind. My waiting times have ranged anywhere from over an hour (due to equipment malfunction) to just 5 minutes. I have to say though that whatever the wait is, Dr. Vargas is well worth the wait!!
