Dr Agarwal performed an endoscopy ultrasound biopsy on my dad to rule out pancreatic cancer. We were lucky, the mass was benign and, he found cysts on the kidneys, all to be closely watched and monitored. My sister had taken my father in for the procedure and had forgotten to as Dr Agarwal a few questions. I called & left a message even though it was long after business hours. Dr. Agarwal returned my call that same evening. He took his time answering all our questions, putting us all at ease.

We had a successful procedure today. We were very confident in Dr. Agarwal abilities to help us. Ann from his office is extremely efficient and prepared us ever step of the way. I really found the final report extremely helpful. It was clear to understand all the work done even though he explained it, having it in a report gave the patient an opportunity to see the findings the next day when he was more alert. Thank you Dr. Agarwal. 10 stars
