Great Doctor, he is honest, but doesn't hit you with a bag of hammers. Asks questions about you, your environment, changes to routine, etc.; not just the standard , "How you feeling?" Staff a little slow on processing prescription refill requests from pharmacy (seems you have to refax 3 or 4 times and personally follow up with a phone call), but overall a good group.

Great endocrinologist

Dr. Argento is an outstanding specialist. He spent as much time as necessary during my appointment(s) in order to make an accurate diagnosis. He helped solve an issue in short order that has been bugging me for over a year.
