20/06/14 5 5 5 5 I have no words to describe him, no one is complete and perfect, but Dr. Vargas is complete and perfect. Trust him with all your problems and he'll find a way to make you feel better. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer (Stage 1-2), it was very hard to accept this fact and stay calm, but with Dr. Vargas's help and all the attentions we went through everything and now its all good. Also, his staff is amazing. Thank you for all the help  Respond

He keep that friendly smile that make the patient feel calm and relax. Because of his medical knowledge, the patient feels more confidence about his ability to perform the surgery. I recommend him for any breast cancer surgeries.

16/05/12 5 5 5 5 When you are diagnosed with cancer, you not only want a surgeon who is the best in their field, but someone who you can trust and treats you with kindness and sensitivity. Dr. Vargas is a great example of this. Having seen many doctors for breast cancer, I can tell you he is one of the best--with expert knowledge, technical skill, bedside manner, and just being there to help you through the process. In addition, both the medical and administrative staff is beyond compare to any other office I've dealt with. As upsetting as a cancer diagnosis can be, if you have it and need a surgeon, working with Dr. Vargas makes it easier to deal with. He's the best!

15/02/12 5 5 5 5 Having received my breast cancer diagnosis and not knowing where to turn, a friend highly recommended Dr. Vargas. He showed genuine concern not only for me, but also for my family going through this difficult time. He was very patient with all of our questions and made sure we understood everything. He made me feel like I was his only patient. I was most impressed with his timely call backs with results and the fact that he made these calls himself even late at night. His compassion and care made going through this diagnosis and surgery so much easier!

27/02/11 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Vargas 7 days after my diagnosis for breast cancer. He was compassionate and laid out the course of treatment for my husband and I. He made me feel comfortable the day of surgery since he knew it was my first surgery. I had complications after the first surgery with a massive hematoma. Rather than pass me off to an unknown surgeon, he performed this second surgery himself. I was really impressed with his bedside manner and his caring for his patients.

14/05/10 5 4 5 5 Dr. Vargas defies the stereotype of the arrogant male surgeon. He doesn't rush you, he listens to your concerns and shares his tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge. He is also a highly skilled surgeon who minimizes discomfort during biopsies and similar in-office procedures. If you must have breast cancer surgery, see Dr. Vargas.
