Verified Patient Reviews
I was seriously impressed by the efficiency of the office!!
Extremely friendly and helpful staff also!!
Dr. Argo is ALWAYS the best.
Dr. Argo is wonderful. He's knowledgeable, personable and puts his patients at ease. I never hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Overall I really like Dr. Argo, I think the front desk wasn’t as friendly I signed in because there was someone before me that was speaking with the receptionist. But not once did she greet me or say hello or I’ll be right with you. A lady that came in about 5min after me was giving paperwork and seen before me I just didn’t feel welcomed from the front desk! I felt invisible until she called my name to fill out my paperwork.
Doctor is very skilled and knows what he is doing and I trust him.
Dr. Argo is absolutely wonderful. This is not the first time I have been to him. He fixed my shoulder last year. I have never had a long wait in the waiting room. His staff is very attentive and very nice. If you are looking for the best, you are looking for Dr. Argo.
Dr. Argo has been our "family ortho" for many years... (how pathetic is that... the three of us have separate family doctors, but we have a family orthopedist!?!?) Myself, my wife, and my son have always received the best of care and a truly personal touch.
Very nice. I Felt comfortable asking questions and he took the time to answer them, without making me feel like he was in a hurry!
I had one of his assistants and she was great.
Very professional. A well run office. Explained my issue to me so that I could understand it.
Dr. Argo is always very professional and knowledgeable. He is confident is what he is doing - along with his assistants and staff.
I highly recommend Dr Argo
I was pleased with Dr. Argo and would recommend him to others.
Dr. Argo always greats his patients in such a pleasant manner that he instantly puts you at ease. He's very informative offering you all the options to treatment that it enables the patient to make an informed decision about their own treatment. I would strongly recommend Dr. Argo and Beacon Orthopaedics to anyone needing orthopaedic treatment.
Dr. Argo seems more concerned with getting to the next patient than he is with making sure you understand the process.
Visit was great! Problem solved. Staff was efficient and courteous. The wait was not an issue for. Same day appointment.
He was warm, friendly, kind and listened to everything I said. He explained everything I asked thoroughly. He showed concern and compassion. I recommend him to anyone seeking orthopedic help.
Very professional and explained everything to my understanding.
Excellent patient care delivered with a positive attitude!
The visit went very well. He was very nice and helpful. I would recommend Dr. Argo.
My wife has been a patient before and we are very pleased with the outcome of seeing Dr. Argo and his staff.
In and out with efficient, friendly and personable service!!
He is a knowledgeable surgeon. I would recommend his skill and expertise to anyone who is looking for an orthopedic surgeon. He explains procedures so that they are easily understood and will answer questions without hesitation.
The visit was handled well from the start. Wait time was minimal, and Dr. Argo explained all my options after reviewing my x-rays. He spent plenty of time to ensure we knew his finding.
Very friendly staff and a great Dr. Highly recommend if you want to get in for your appt and out in a timely manner.
I? had my first appointment with Dr Argo today and he was great. Very friendly, professional, and courteous.
I felt Dr Argo was very professional, helpful and I had such a better understanding of what was wrong with my knee. Highly recommend his Office.
Dr. Argo and assistants were very helpful with explanations - from how to navigate the facilities to diagnosis and treatment options - and were courteous and upbeat. The facilities were top notch, so even with the slightly longer wait to see Dr. Argo, time passed quickly thanks to televisions in the waiting area and in the appointment rooms.
This operation is a well oiled machine. The care I received today was exemplary!
Knew exactly what was wrong and how to fix the issue with exercise and surgery.
Very professional staff. They are all friendly, informative & efficient!
Nice bedside manner, confident, great memory, always positive.
Very professional, quick X-rays, evaluation, and assessment of problem. Caring and pleasant staff.
It was a good experience but I saw 5 different people. I saw Dr. Argo, who seemed nice, for only 3 minutes. I am not an athletic person and I am sure he is use to seeing athletes. I do not even know how I fractured my foot. He was in to read the x-rays, told me it was fractured and would need a boot. He was gone and I never saw him again. I saw just a nice lady who showed me how to use the boot. I asked her if I could find out more about my foot. Instead of Dr. Argo another lady, who was very nice also, came in and wrote down what was wrong with my foot. I basically still do not understand. I think it is quantity of patients over quality of time with patient. I do want to say they were all nice.
Great experience. Diagnosed the proble right away and provided easy non surgical solution.
Dr. Argo is a great doctor. He always listens to the issues I'm having and works with me on creating a plan to fixing it
I am a 76 year old retired RN and have never seen a practice so well run. The staff was efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. Even though a lot was going on, everyone seemed to know what to do. Dr. Argo explained things clearly and in less than an hour with x-rays taken, I came away with a plan for follow up. Great experience!
I thought the visit was great! Once we got into the examining room everything went very quickly. Dr. Argo explained my daughters knee complications, cause and the therapy needed to fix it very well. He explained everything so that both my daughter and I knew exactly what was going on and what is needed to correct it. My only problem was actually with myself. We received so much information I forgot to ask questions before he left the room. We never discussed whether she was cleared to go back to practice and game play before her therapy was completed.
The office works like a well oiled machine! Everyone was personable and efficient.
Dr. Argo is great with kids!
Dr. Argo saw me regarding an ankle injury and did an excellent job addressing my issue. He reviewed my x-rays, performed a physical exam and quickly diagnosed my injury. He patiently answered my questions about my specific injury and recommended a treatment plan to get me back to normal.
Dr. Argo was pleasant, thorough and honest. He made suggestions based on my symptoms and offered feedback as to what next steps would look like.
Top notch !
Dr. Argo is very professional. My boys have seen him for years and they love the care he gives them.
It wasn't a very long one but very nice Dr.and associates.
Dr. Argo is a very experienced, thoughtful doctor and surgeon. His vast experience enables him to diagnose and treat your condition quickly and effectively. An excellent doctor with great bedside manner -- a difficult combination to find sometimes.
Thank you Dr Argo, Jamie, and Joe for you time and patience. You explained everything to me, and made me feel comfortable. You didnt just dismiss me, and looked further into my problem. Thanks again, and Im sure I will be seeing you again soon.
Always great to work with Doc Argo. My entire family sees him when needed.
Dr. Argo is very professional, pleasant and knowledgeable. He addressed my issue and explained everything to me. His staff is exceptional.
It was easy and fast and in my busy life just what I need.
He has a n excellent way of explaining my option and what was involved.he took the time to explain each option, and what to expect with them. He made my choices very easy to make.
Very friendly, professional, and informative. Would definitely recommend Beacon and Dr. Argo!
The staff was wonderful!!!
I had to pay a lot and waste a lot of time at other Ortho/Sports med groups before I finally got taken care of properly by Dr. Argo. He really helped me.
Great doctor been going to him for years!
Great! Very glad to be a patient of Dr. Argo's. Always very thorough and caring about my concerns and the quickest way to get me back to being active again.
As always wonderful
The phone call to schedule the appointment and to determine what the cost would be as I am a self pay person was excruiating. The people were rude. As were the people in MRI when I asked them that question. The front desk people were extremely unhappy and annoyed to be at work that day also. does anyone smile at customers anymore?!
Great doctor, quick , efficient but caring at the same time.
Loved Dr. Argo! I saw him for a second opinion and he listened to my concerns and offered good advice while also being respectful of my first doctor's diagnosis, even though his opinion was different.
Love that Dr Argo asks questions listens evalutes and gets results
The Beacon doctors are awesome!
Great visit with Dr. Argo. He remembers your previous visits, friendly, professional. A pleasure to see.
Always a pleasant experience visiting the office of Dr. Argo.
This office has to be the most efficient office I have ever been in. All personel are very friendly and effectively accomplish the job at hand. Need additional X-rays? Within seconds you are exported down the hall for x-rays. When you are back in your room the results are immediately uploaded into the computer for the doctor to see. Need an MRI? On your way out the door you schedule it and are informed you will be seen within 24 hours to review results. Dr. Argo was very punctual, personable and knowledgeable. His confidence in his diagnosis put my mind at ease.
Dr Argo knew exactly what was wrong with my knee. Very professional and caring doctor.
Very professional and personal.
Feel the doctor could have spent a little more time.
I like Dr Argo because he is straight forward, and seems honest. I know he's very busy, just wish he could spend a little more time. Didn't feel like I had time to answer all my questions and had to ask the tech who asked him what I could keep doing. Still feel confident in him.
Dr. Argo has always made me feel like he was my "family" doctor. He talks to me like he is my friend yet approaches my medical issue in the most professional manner.
Love Dr. Argo. Straight shooter but empathetic. Looks at all options to help you choose what is best.
Office is super organized. Had xrays, exam, bloodwork and was done in 45 minutes, including them having to push me out to my car in a wheelchair!
Dr. Argo and his support staff are efficient, effective, and responsible in the execution of their professional roles. His manner is friendly, direct, and marked with an air of partnership. Moreover, his physician's assistant and intake workers are friendly and professional. His is a very well-oiled operation that respects the patient's time. I was referred for X-rays and an MRI and that portion of Beacon's operation is also stellar.
I was seen by 4 medical practitioners prior to Dr. Argo for the pain in my back that has been a burden in my life every minute of every day. They all threw in the towel. I had several x-rays and MRI's taken along the way. Then, I made it to Dr. Argo via referral. His office took 4 more x-rays on-site. Within 5 minutes of him entering the room, he was able to identify the source of my pain, and refer my to a specialist whom will use minimally invasive surgery to alleviate the pain. He was the first doctor to identify the issue, and was able to point to the source of the pain. It was a relief to know that my search for help was finally over. I haven't seen the specialist yet, but Dr. Argo was amazing.
Dr. Argo and his staff were timely and pleasant. They each took time to sit down and go over diagnosis and treatment recommendations and explain everything in detail.
He was very thorough and does a great job????.
Quick, efficient. Love it !
They where to busy to spend enough time with me X-rays where not read to my knowledge and I felt rushed through
Dr Argo is a friendly and caring professional who makes going to the doctor nonconfrontational. A joy to know that going to the doctor can be a good experience.
he is a great doctor
Wonderful office. Always a good experience!
Everyone was super nice and friendly. Very knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions.
Dr. Argo is ALWAYS professional and caring. He takes the time to listen to you and then asks questions and evaluates your condition. I wish all physicians had his "manner" of dealing kindly and caring deeply for the patient and their difficulties.
Friendly, efficient. Convenient location, too. Dr. Argo was very nice and seemed very capable. I LOVE Zocdoc!
Dr, Argo has a special relationship with his patient - he cares about how well you understand what is going on. He has operated on my shoulder and knee and done rotator cuff repair on both of my husband's shoulders. Everyone I have referred to Dr. Argo has had wonderful outcomes. His staff is phenomenal. Amanda is compassionate and makes sure you are seen in a timely fashion. Joe is a wonderful PA-C. He takes his time with you and is as compassionate and meticulous about your care as is Dr. Argo.
Good but he never told me how to take care of my injury. I am getting an MRI . What do I do until them was never reviewed .
Dr.Argo is simply the best. I know that he truly cares about my feelings and my injury. He has performed surgery on me before and did an excellent job. I trust Dr. Argo so much that if my 13 year old son needed an ortho specialist Dr. Argo would be my first stop...
Always very knowledgeable and professional.
Long wait but good first impression
Everyone in the office is very nice. I first had to have xrays. Within 5 min later, Dr Argo came in the room. He was very fast & seemed confident of his thoughts. He just told me he had 2 suspicions but wouldn't be positive without MRI. Told me to get those & then see him again. I can't put down "excellent" because he didn't take more than 5 min with me to explain anything. And when he left I felt confused as to what might be wrong & what was in place to help. There was nothing offered for my current pain... I just felt somewhat confused. But Dr Argo was very nice & seemed very sure of what he thought was wrong. I took by that, he wanted MRIs... to confirm his thoughts & that he would give more information at my follow up appt. I hope so. .
Dr. Argo and the team at Beacon are always on point. Personable, professional and ready to help you with your orthopedic/muscle healthcare needs.
I spent a year and half with the wrong doctor before I came to Beacon and FINALLY got relief and answers.
I highly recommend Dr. Argo and Beacon. Not only was the wait time in the waiting room short but so was the wait time in the exam room. My friends and family were surprised at how my appointments and tests were all scheduled so promptly. Everyone was very professional and friendly. They answered all my questions and made sure I understood what our next step was and what to expect before I left.
I appreciated that X-rays could be taken on-site at the time of the visit. Dr. Argo was friendly yet straight-forward.
Service was very efficient. Determination that an xray was needed and taken right away followed with scheduling of an MRI the following week.
The staff is very professional. Good bedside manner. Very personable.
Great! Just had to wait almost an hour in waiting room...
He is very thorough
He is always professional and personable. He offers a variety of different types of treatment. I always choose him when I have an issue in his specialty.
Pleasant, accurate diagnosis, professional, caring, human.
Extremely thoughtful seemed genuinely concerned about my medical problem.
I was seen immediately, talking to a PA briefly before being ushered back for X-rays, then had less than a 5 minute wait before I spoke with the Doctor. The whole visit took less than 40 minutes start to finish and everyone I spoke with was very friendly and professional. Good bedside manner and a willingness to explain their thought processes for the different procedures they were requesting.
I had rt. Knee surgery 4 yrs ago with issues. Dr. Argo was very thorough in seeing my surgery through. Came back today for issues with left knee. Thoroughly satisfied so far with treatment.
He was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable. What more could you ask for in your doctor? I would return and I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Argo is an excellent physician. His bedside manner is very professional and he has a great mastery of the knowledge of his field. I feel confident going into surgery that he will do the best job possible. His office staff were also all very friendly and helpful. I was in and out of the office in only an hour for a first time visit. Very impressed.
He was very attentive and listened to my concerns and helped come to a solution hat we were both satisfied would work
I would NEVER go to any other ortho surgeon except Dr. Argo....I love him, his staff, and his physical therapy department !! He has operated on my shoulder and my knee with the absolute best results both times ! I've now injured that same knee again and I know he and his team will help me through it again !!!
Great doctor - gave us options to try before any surgery. Has a good manner with patients.
I felt the practice is run very smoothly. The flowed from one team to the next with little wait time and everyone was informed about why I was there and their role. Dr Argo was quick and knowledgable and knew was able to converse to me on my level.
Very friendly staff and doctors. They are very knowledgable and you never feel rushed. Follow up is very good also.
Wonderful! Very friendly and informative from beginning to end. Great first visit
I was very impressed with Dr. Argo and his staff. After reviewing my x-rays, Dr. Argo took the time to explain options relating to my issue. He went one step further by calling someone else in who was very familiar with the issue I am experiencing. She was able to provide me with answers to questions I had. This made it much easier for me to make a decision as to which option I thought was best for me. Thank you for making this such an easy decision for me to make!
Very satisfied with his communication.
The wait time was not unreasonable. The staff was kind and very compassionate. Dr. Argo ' s bedside manner made me laugh and put me at ease. A 100% positive experience.
Dr. Argo is great at what he does. The only problem with that is that everyone wants to see him. I had to wait 20 minutes after my appointment time before I was called back but that's pretty typical.
Much improved wait time, only 10 minutes. Thanks.
Apparently the appointments were running 45 minutes behind and neglected to inform anyone...poor manners and the girl at the front desk seemed liked she hated her job. She wasn't very personable.
very impressed with the whole experience from the office visit to the mri
Very satisfied with the waiting room, timeliness of attention, courteous reception staff, organization, professionalism of medical staff. An overall good experience.
Not just Dr. Argo, but the entire Beacon staff is second to none. Dr. Argo is the best!
It was very professional
Dr. Argo is very efficient and professional, spot on, so once I actually get in to see him I am pleased with the outcome. However, you seem to either have an office process issue or are purposely scheduling individuals 30 minutes prior to an actual visit time. I have had 3 visits so far and each time waited more 30 minutes to see a doctor. The last visit I showed up early and ended up waiting 40-45 minutes. For me, I work so I am giving up valuable vacation time so it is somewhat annoying. I purposely schedule my visits way in advance so I can get the time I need to meet my schedule so it would really be appreciated if the same courtesy was given to me. It makes me wonder if it is better for me to plan to show up 15-20 minutes late so we are all on the same time schedule.
My experience with Dr. Argo was fantastic. He explained everything throughly and clearly and made me feel welcomed and important as any of his other patients. Overall, I would recommend Dr. Argo.
The whole visit including x-rays was less than 1 hour for a new patient. I didn't feel rushed and felt comfortable asking questions. It was a good experience.
Beacon upon receiving and confirming my reservation sent me the paperwork I needed to file with their administration. When I arrived for for my appointment, the admin accepted my paperwork and copied my ID and insurance card. That was it! Next move see the doctor. Before seeing Dr. Argo, I received an x-ray. Minimal wait time. Within a few Dr. Argo visited me within a few minutes upon getting to the examination room. He recommended me for a MRI. Although it was late in the day, the MRI technician arranged to book my MRI for the next day. Extremely efficient.
Dr. Argo was recommended to me by a local emergency room physician. He is very thorough, professional, and friendly. His credentials are impressive too!
It was great. In the office within 5 minutes of arrival, x-rays, and see doctor - out in about 1/2 hour, shortest visit I have ever had.
Dr. Argo was very pleasant and informative. I really like him.
Very clear and helpful with information.
Awesome as ever!
Dr Argos energy and knowledge is amazing. He has a wonderful way of breaking things down where his patients can understand. He's so personable and I'm not sure he has ever met a stranger. He's been my orthopedic for a number of years now and I wouldn't change a thing.
Very informative and efficient!
He was professional and knowledgeable and a good communicator I enjoyed the visit and thought I got superb care
I was very impressed with the staff at Beacon Orthopedics West. Everyone was prompt, friendly, and professional. Dr. Argo was great, and I would highly recommend him, and Beacon Orthopedics. It was so easy to make an appointment on line (self referred), and have the necessary forms already filled out prior to my appointment.
