Dr. Arguello is a New York transplant who now calls Texas her home. She was initially inspired to practice medicine by her father, also a physician, however, it was not until she served as a medical interpreter in Ben Taub hospital in Houston during her college years that she learned that it was her life's passion as well.
Dr. Arguello received her degree in Biological Sciences at Rice University in Houston, TX, then attended medical school in Loma Linda School of Medicine in California before returning to Texas to complete her residency at UT Southwestern in Dallas. Her professional interests include women's wellness, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and office procedures, as well as high risk obstetrics.
"What I find most gratifying about my job is the ability to empower women to take charge of their health and ownership of their well being. I'm most proud of the relationships I've been able to build with my patients."
Dr. Arguello is devoted to helping others. A co-founder of the Ministry for the Forgotten Children, a Texas based non-profit organization that has lead numerous efforts to provide healthcare in impoverished areas of Latin America, India, Kenya, and Tanzania, she has personally served in several community service projects in Ecuador (where her family is from), and also in mission trips to Guyana, Peru, and Mexico. She has also continually served her local communities through volunteering, mentoring, and tutoring.
Dr. Arguello is fluent in Spanish and conversational in Italian. "The next place I want to visit is Sub-Saharan Africa, and I would love to get involved in medical mission work there in the future."
