What can I tell you about a good doctor and the staff*. I guess the doc drives the culture of their practice. First: Very professional, knows his area and takes time to explain it. Second: When you see Dr Agarwala the first time, he might appear to be a very to the point person on his answers. But when you are in the patient room behind the closed door, he will to open up with you. Takes time and will discuss anything that may or may not be directly related to cardiovascular and will give you advice. Third: You all know this, we call for a refill. The office tells you that you have to make a visit first. I didn’t have this experience. I got the refill and then scheduled the appointment. Fourth: *Staff: Let’s distinguish the people on the front desk vs staff who actually run all the tests and take care of you. OMG the folks inside running tests and taking care of you are amazingly great. Now the front desk can use some guidance. May be they are under staffed or lost in the detail. The

Very knowledgeable and pleasant physician. Stayed on top of everything related to my care. I owe my life to him. He explained every procedure as I was well aware of my plan of care. From Cath lab, stent, wearable defibrillator, chest with palpitations, to ICD, I'm alive today because he cared professionally. I would recommend this cardiologist for everyone of my family members and friends.
