Felt like a number in this practice; collect copay, glance at CT scan from referring doctor, and recommend expensive tests while disregarding the info on the reports done previously. There was no questioning on prior medical hist
Not only was Dr Arguello and his staff very time efficient, but he was thorough in the extreme with my examination. Rather than just examine me, he quickly identified a condition that could be causing my issues and this was something that up to now had never been brought to my attention by any other doctor. He then built out a road map for investigating and correctly identifying my condition, and then the subsequent treatment. So yes, I would absolutely recommend Dr. Arguello.

Very good, obviously caring and professional doctor. Really seemed to be concerned about the pain I was experiencing and really laid down a plan of action to make it better.
