Great doctor and surgeon
Dr Agarwal performed my colonoscopy and was absolutely fantastic. He made me feel very comfortable as a medical professional. The day of the procedure, he checked in prior to and after and gave me my results. He was amazing and I highly recommend him.

Got operated and left incontinent under Dr. agarwals care. I should have seen the red flags from the start but went with him because he was recommended by a good doctor. He blamed my previous doctors from the beginning and after the surgery when I developed fecal incontinence he promptly handed me a flyer for another surgery and treated it nonchalantly. He messed up and continues to blame previous doctors even though I was fine before he operated. Don't see this guy if you can avoid it.

Dr agarwal saved my life! He did an excellent job of my colon resection and while there was surprised by a leaking abscess but took care of it and me in great fashion. He’s all business, and very busy and much in demand, but he is kind and caring and very skilled. He is my favorite doctor!

I can't understand all of these glowing reviews. Dr Agarwal put my health and well being at risk by failing to communicate and provide me with a post-surgery medical kit of supplies and prescriptions that led to undue pain and suffering. When presented with my issue, I was treated very poorly and there was no remorse, concern, or solution offered by Dr Agarwal or his staff.

Dr. Agarwal corrected my colon/rectal problem with surgery. During my initial office visit he listened to me, examined me, and explained what needed to be done. During my post-op visit he explained exactly what he did during surgery and what to expect going forward. His surgical work and expertise were superb. Post-operation recovery was much more easy than expected, and my problem is gone! Thank you Dr. Agarwal for your fine work. I'm very, very happy with the outcome.

Dr. Agarwal was an absolute life saver!!! My husband was undergoing severe and chronic stomach and colon issues for five consecutive months. Since he is a cancer patient no one felt comfortable in addressing or correcting his problems. “Lo and behold” we found the best colon rectal doctor! He is knowledgeable, thorough, confident and decisive and wasted no time in addressing the issue at hand. He is warm, compassionate and has great bedside manners! From the moment we met him we felt we were in the BEST hands! We highly recommend Dr Agarwal if you should ever need a doctor in this field. We thank him and his staff for their excellent service and support ! THANK YOU and God BLESS!

Dr. Agarwal is knowledgeable, very well prepared and extremely through. He usually manages to answer all of our questions before we can ask them but always takes the time to make sure we have the information we need. He is a talented surgeon with a bedside manner that has been very comforting to me. I am so thankful he is on my team. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone dealing with colorectal cancer.

I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon or team to have by my side. My experience far exceeded my expectations and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that needed his care. From day one of deciding surgery was my best option to follow up afterward, it was always very clear that my future and feeling better was the ultimate goal!
