I found this DR to be a most patient and understanding physician and person. Following a 35 year relationship with one Dr who is now retired, to find a new person with whom to experience an immediate level of comfort andconfidence is most appreciated. Dr. Arguedas is certainly my new and trusted man.

Dr. Carlos was great! He spent a lot of time informing me on ways to lessen the amount of cold sores I get a year, as well as gave me tips on practicing better posture since I am having back pain.He could've easily spent 10 minutes to give me a prescription for my cold sore and have me bounce, but he didn't. He really took the time to get to know me, and his receptionist was so friendly as well. Definitely recommend! A doctor & a life coach :)

I went in for a routine consultation and check up and did not have any specific medical complaints or problems. I thought I would see the Dr. for 5 mins but he spent at least an hour with me asking aboutmy life, my healthy and unhealthy habits and offering insight and suggestions for boosting and maintaining good health. He ordered lab work and the lab is in the same building so I was able to it the same day and received results within a week. Even though I was given a clean bill of health, Dr. Arguedas said he wanted to see me for a follow up 3 weeks later. I liked this because it gave me time to absorb things we discussed and put some of his suggestions to work and then report back to him. You can tell he likes what he does and he really cares.

I have visited Dr. Arguedas 3 times, and every time he was patient when I came to him with a hundred questions. He answered all of them in a thorough and easy to understand way, even using visual aids. He isfriendly and authentic; he really wants the patient to understand how their body works, along with the ins-and-outs of their current health issue. There's no way I could not recommend him to anyone. The rest of the office staff are great too!
