I had spine surgery with Dr. Agarwala on 4/17 It has been a week now and I have yet to get a phone call from him and never received a post op visit from him in the hospital.!!! I was in hospital 4 nights and he sent his PA in the 1st 2 days. I had many questions for him and NO ONE could answer them as they were not in the operating room. His PA could not answer either. That is totally unacceptable, I also left a message for him to call me at the office and nothing I am not happy, I guess he is too good to follow up on his surgical patients He didn't even leave a x-ray of my back for me to see. I have no idea what he did and I think his bedside manner sucks.(he doesn't have one)

He seemed extremely rushed. He arrogantly informed me I that he could only help me if I needed an injection or fusion - no other options were presented (as if I am ordering fast food!). He barely looked at my xrays. He didn't talk about my options in any detail, either surgical or non-surgical. He didn't order an MRI. I asked for PT. He was dismissive and rude. I would NEVER have this man touch me. I went to his PT and he caused further injury to my cervical spine. Now I do need surgery. AVOID!

My degenerative disc disease procedure led me to Dr. Agarwala. He is highly intelligent, extremely well trained, sets the bar very high for successful results. My condition required the same procedure 2X within 7yrs due to the nature of my disease. The team supporting Dr. Agarwala made post surgery, in hospital ,visits to monitor my recovery. Spinal fusion 2X, pain free 2X. Excellent surgeon and staff, positive patient attitude, have improved my quality of life. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Agarwala

Dr. Agarwala seems like a good Doc. He is attentive, responsive and caring, But, Both appointment times were delayed with extra time chair warming. His "team" really appears to be overworked, rushed and beat down so to speak. It Impossible to get any viable communication going via voice or email and if you happen to be lucky to connect, it's like a bad A.I. (artificial intelligence) response coming from the office. Like waiting for a reply from Voyager using a walkie-talkie.
