Fantastic care and information. Dr. Arguedas provides educational and utilitarian advice. His care is beyond compare.
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 and confidence is most appreciated. Dr. Arguedas is certainly my new and trusted man.
Dr.Arguedas is super excellent. He spent enough time with me and explained my situation in details and made it very simple to understand. Forgot to mention that he is highly respectful and friendly!

Efficient, informative,and caring.
I'm a new patient here first visit. Great customer service from the front office staff. Nice clean facility, Wait time less than 30 minutes. Doc has great bedside manner. Unrushed very detailed in feedback. Its about a 20-30 minute drive from my home but well worth it. Definitely satisfied.

Dr. Arguedas is always very helpful and thorough. He gives clear explanations of what is happening in your body and very wise advice on how to improve your health.
He was very kind and understanding.
Although i had to wait for long time.... he spent alot of time talking and listening to my concerns. I think he is the longest i spent with a doctor in a patient room ever.
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 :)
Dr. Arguedas approached the diagnosis of my condition holistically and spent extensive time explaining the possible causes and appropriate treatments, including recommendations for nutrition and exercise. His aptitude for teaching enables patients to understand the reasons behind their symptoms and the strategy to resolve even chronic conditions.
I found the Dr. to be more than polite and understanding with the issues I was bringing to him. He not only explained but had a way of having everything make sense in a way that any person could relate to.
Very thorough. Explained causes of ailment, remedies, and how to keep it from reoccurring.
Everyone here is so nice and welcoming!!
Great visit. Dr. Arguedas went through many aspects of my general health during my initial visit and asked questions and offered suggestions to continue living a healthy life.
Great visit once I was finally seen. Had a 1 hr 45 min wait from my appointment time (and I had gotten there early).
Dr. Arguedas is a very good primary care physician. He took an hour and a half to explain everything in great detail in regards to what I was going through health wise. I would say if you are in need of an excellent PCP, please go visit Dr. Arguedas
They have wifi.
Most educated and personable Doctor I have ever been too. He actually listened and cared about what I said. The front office ladies were so nice as well.
It's really nice when a doctor takes time to have a conversation with you and explains everything till you understand.
this guy is a pal a friend and a man who can take things apart and make you see things clearly. I look foward to many years with this great dr.
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 is friendly 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!
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 about my 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.
He was thorough. Spent 30 minutes - going over everything so I understood what was going on and in addition to medication what I could do to help my situation with food and lifestyle changes.
Dr Arguedas is thorough, informative and pleasant. His nurse, Fili, is a wonderful compliment to his easy demeanor and adds a great 'comfort level' to every visit.

Dr. Arguedas was amazing. He completely explained everything to my husband and I about any of his concerns
Excellent advise and professional care. I love his office staff.
Dr. Arguedas is a nice doctor if you aren't interested in alternative or holistic avenues, for the older "by-the-book" folks he will probably be a good fit.
The front office took an hour to even acknowledge me. I almost got up and walked out as a new patient. When I did see the doctor, he was excellent. He provided very logical input on my supplements and various concerns that I had. He has an excellent bedside matter and is very kind w/ his time.
I never feel rushed and like that I have his undivided attention during my visits.

It was my first time seeing Dr. Arguedas and I was the last patient of the day. Some doctors would hurry through the appointment so they can go home but Dr. Arguedas spent over an hour and a half discussing my various ailments with me and giving me valuable advice. I've never had a doctor so deeply invested in his patients before. I highly recommend him.
