Dr. Argarwal is simply THE best. She is very knowledgeable in all areas of mental health and very astute in medication if necessary. She has been my psychiatrist for five years. I feel so fortunate to be in her competent hands. No reservations in totally recommending this doctor. Paula

It's been fifteen years since I had to see Dr. Gardner. He's every bit as good as I remembered. He took his time with me, explained my issues and asked four times if I had any questions. He's the podiatrist to see locally. Outstanding experience. Father John Kennedy
