It was and is still my worst experience with a doctor. I went in for a routine (covered) physical. I now have and am fighting a bill with quest diagnostics for nearly one thousand dollars, for which I never even receivedany results for! Dr Wargo did nothing but complain about someone that had recently done a bad job painting his office. Then handed me over to his NP took some blood and I have nothing to show for it than a lot of frustration and possibly tarnishing my credit.

I Love Dr. Wargo and would recommend him to anyone. He is very easy to talk to and he really listens to you (which is so rare to find these days). The only negative thing is that you usually have towait awhile in the waiting room. However, this is only because he doesn't rush through appointments, a compromise I am willing to accept. Another good thing is that it is fairly easy to get an appointment with him (not like my old physician who had so many patients he was booked for two to three weeks sometimes). Definitely a great doctor.

Dr. Wargo was awesome. Other than the long wait it was WELL worth it. I found him to be so easy to talk to and he really took his time to ask me all questions necessary to figure out my exactplan of treatment. Sure, he may talk a lot, but I loved our conversation as it was enjoyable to laugh with my doctor instead of having one who treats you as just another patient, writes whatever script you want and sends you on your way. I would suggest him to anyone who wants a doctor to put you at ease and really cares about his patients. I will definite

Dr. Wargo is the man. He listens to every word that comes out of your mouth and has the deepest concern for every one of your concerns. Makes the appointment very relaxed and always willing to help. He is very intelligentwith a touch of old school. As someone who works in the medical field, I value his expertise and would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a primary care physican or any medical issues.

I was very pleased with Zoc Doc itself. When the facility claimed to not have the paperwork that I filled out prior to my arrival. I texted Zoc Doc and they called me immediately to take care of it. It appearedthe secretary just didn't want to take the time to find the paperwork and Zoc Doc was Johnny on the spot to convenience. I probably wouldn't describe this facility as clean, professional or appealing to the eye. The waiting room and the patients looked like a government paid walk in clinic. Although I was pleased with the ability to get in so promptly. It was very nice to be able to check in, make an appointment, fill out my paperwork prior and walk straight in with little to no wait. The doctor himself was very nice. Down to earth and did his best to facilitate my needs. I was very sick with very confusing and frustrating symptoms and he did his best to give me his full time and attention. Although the bedside manner of his "friend" who checked me in, could use some attention. Perhaps he was having a bad day or upset he was having to do CNA work as a MD. Either way, regardless of his educational background or status. His condescending approach was not something desired when you are very ill and are trying to give information so that your situation can be diagnosed properly. The check in process with him wasn't something I would return back for or suggest to a friend. I would however Dr. Alex Wargo. Over all I feel it was the best I could do for a last min desperate need of a doctor. Undetermined whether or not I would use or suggest this as a long term primary doctor.

Dr. Wargo has an excellent personality and is very kind and knowledgeable. Pros -Excellent bed side manner -Put me at ease when I was nervous -Genuine realistic learning Cons Very long wait time despite appointment -Was interrupted by officemanager to sort out another patient's file, right in front of me. He should've stepped out.
