Tammy Vargas, M.D.
"Being a family physician gives me the unique opportunity to see each patient as an individual and as part of a family. I focus on my patient's needs with care and compassion and try to incorporate the standards of medical quality as they are appropriate".
To achieve her goal of being comprehensive in each patient's evaluation, Dr. Vargas uses a detailed medical history and a physical exam; she orders appropriate testing and coordinates the use of specialists when necessary, treating patient of all age groups from newborns to older adults.
She excels at maintaining continuity of care. Saint Vincent's electronic medical records system has increased the ease in which Dr. Vargas can deliver optimal care to her patients, which is better achieved by the integration among providers, hospitals, laboratories and imaging centers.
