I felt very rushed. I waited 40 minutes and the doctor didn't even sit down. She was in and out in less than 5 minutes without answering all of my concerns. She didn't even collect the diagnostic questionnaire her staff assignedme. I got blood work done and the room was disgusting, with food and beverages all over the room. I took off of work and paid good money only to not have most of my questions answered and to feel like I was nothing more than a means to get paycheck .

Dr. Vargas is a perfect example of what a doctor should be: friendly, personable, attentive, and compassionate. She listens to your concerns and offers recommendations to help. She's a wonderful primary care physician and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring and attentive doctor.

Staff needs more professionalism. They seemed more concerned about their catered lunch than the patients. I had completed all the paperwork already online and I still had to fill out more forms at the office once I got there. A nursetook blood samples and I ended with me having blood stains allover my shirt and pants. Nurse asked me if I was anemic and I responded by asking her that's why i needed to come in to the doctor's office in the first place. She would be in a better position to determined if bleeding that much was normal or to let me know if she thought I was anemic. I will not return to this place not because of the doctor but simply the staff did not seem attentive, professional, or courteous enough.

I was very unhappy with the medical assistance that are working with my doctor. They are not organized at all. Even after my second visit, the MA was very off in her routine. Then to call abnormal things on my recordin which if I didn't have the app, I wouldn't have known. I never got a call about labs at all. When I called for the information, someone told my dr. already called in a prescription which was untrue. I wait at least two weeks after my appointment to finally have my prescription called in properly.

I have been Dr Vargas-Morris' patient for over 7 years and she is a wonderful doctor and person. She really listens to whatever issues you are having and genuinely cares. She is my PCP and she is over 80 miles awayand worth every mile I have to travel to see her! If you need a general doctor, you can't do much better than her!

She was funny and engaging yet professional. I went in for my knee and she did a referral, but still no real resolution on my knee. The office need upgrades as computers instead of yellow sticky pads and the office inthe back seem bleak! The initial interaction with staff was ok, but after once I was being seen, they were professional yet seem to really care about my well being, they were personal and they listened.

The office was clean, but the staff was not super professional, people were ordering chick fila and interrupting the nurse checking my blood pressure to sort out breakfast. The nurse also made me feel bad about my previous media history andI was left in the doctors office undressed for 40 mins waiting on blood work. I finally realized they left me there. The actual Dr. was fun loving and made me feel less nervous about the visit but it was not a smooth time.

Dr. Morris was polite and professional but I spent more time talking with the nurse than I did with the Doctor. She didn't even give me a full exam, which is what I came in for.

Dr. Morris was very pleasant but several things were not acceptable to me: 1. As a new patient she was not at all interested in my medical background. I finally forced it on her, as there are important things that myprimary care doctor needs to know. 2. She was way to eager to say "So, what meidcaitons do you need? Do you need refills?" Again, see #1. 3. I also had a pap smear. I asked the nurse if I could meet the doctor before taking all my clothes off. She asked the doctor, the doctor say no, she was too busy that day. So I met her with no clothes on. :( It doesn't matter how old you get, this never is fun and should never be the norm. 4. Months later, I called desprate to get in for an appointment. No one answered the phone, so I left a message. After 24 hours I called again and no one had even listened to my message. When I asked why, they said they were busy doing paperwork that day. I was livid. Mind you, there were doctors seeing patients that day, but by the time I got in touch with someone it was too late for me to get there. That should sum up why she will never be my doctor.

I really walked away from my appointment feeling like Dr. Vargas Morris took the time to hear my concerns, was patient in explaining my options and things that I did not fully understand. She was tentative...and "real". Sometimes as patientswe forget that Dr's are human too and that they go through some of the same things we go through. It was my first time in this office and I was extremely hesitant as anyone would be. The last Dr that I saw was very ..."disconnected" and I left that appointment with more questions then answers. Thank you Dr. Vargas Morris!!

Love her! It was like talking with my sister. I've never connected with a doctor like I have with her. Her pleasant and calm demeanor put me at ease but it was her ability to listen and provide medical options thatgave me hope toward a healthier future that totally won me over. I didn't think doctors like her still existed. Thank you...
