Yucca valley, |
I miss this doctor so much. I've not been able to establish the same rapport with doctors in this area since I had to leave her as she no longer accepts my HMO. She is really personable and knowledgeable. Her medical skills were the best and I always left her office feeling respected and understood. I have three chronic health conditions requiring frequent monitoring. She was on top of it! Unlike the two doctors I've tried since she never made me feel like she couldn't be bothered .

Dr Agarwal .... it's always good to see her, even when you are not doing well , which is the point in case ;) !!! She is wise, knowledgeable and compassionate. I love her cool sense of humor, not to mention the cute dimples that go with the name! Liked her from day one and happy to have her as my doctor.

Dr Agarwal is an excellent physician. Very caring and always reachable. She has a good sense of humor and is personable. She explains medical jargon in a way I can understand. Highly recommend.
Palm Springs, CA |
I visited Dr. Agarwal and her staff recently. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. From a very short wait time to the efficiency of Doctor Agarwal, it was an overall pleasure. The doctor and her whole staff really care about the patients needs. I will definitely be returning to this doctor.

Dr. Agarwal is amazing! She is very understanding and very well informed. Probably the best internal medicine practitioner the valley!
in Palm Springs, CA |
I have had the opportunity to visit Dr. Agarwal's office on many occasions and my experiences with Dr. Agarwal have been outstanding. She is extremely knowledgeable, skilled, kind, and caring. Dr. Agarwal is very professional and takes the time to answer all of my questions. The office staff have always been helpful and nice. I highly recommend Dr. Agarwal to anyone looking for a great doctor.

Dr. Agarwal is an exceptional doctor. She is patient, knowledgeable, listens, answers your questions, resolves issues, gives great specialist referral doctors and her staff is efficiient, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Terrific doctor and office. I am extemely impressed with her knowledge, concern for my health, and especially the time she has spent with me. She is clearly concerned about overall wellness issues and not just a current problem. I would recommend her without hesitation.

very nice doctor

Came in just for an annual visit as a first time patient and walked out with a list of things to do. Very grateful. This doctor took her time with me, I even had a student NP who took interest.
in Menifee, CA |
Immediately ask for a new doctor if you get this lady. She shows no concern for her patience. My mother-in-law has been in the hospital for the last 4 days and we still can't get any answers on the results from all her tests that were done. When you ask the staff when Dr. Agarwal will be in, their response is "I don't know, it may be this morning, tonight or tomorrow we actually never know." Your loved ones will not receive the proper care from this lady. She should be ashamed of herself.
I'm sorry it takes a small community hospital that long to get the results to share with the patient's family
in Palm Springs, CA |
Dr. Agarwal is the best doctor I've ever had, both her and her PA are excellent in all areas. I have never felt rushed, she spends whatever time she needs to understand fully what is going on with you, and delivers care/instructions in a clear, concise fashion. I have never left her office feeling unsure of her diagnoses or treatment recommendations. A doctor is only as good as their front office staff, and Rhonda, her office manager is hands down, the best on communication and follow thru.

This lady should not be aloud to practice medicine ever again. She is rude unprofessiinal, came into my mothers room and hadn't read her chart. Next time we never saw her for 27 hours,came in trying to say my mother had COPD which was false, she has Sarcidosis, similar signs and symptoms but different. If she had only read the chart. questioned her on it and she stomped out of the room saying you need to get another doctor. Pathetic to say the least. Don't let her treat you.Hate to give one star
I'm sorry. It is always a difficult and emotional situation having a family member in the hospital. It was also very difficult to deal with so many family members who where derogatory and yelling expletives as soon as I walked in the door. I hope your mother is continuing to do well!
in Cathedral City, CA |
The most arrogant, indifferent, dismissive doctor. But let's back up a bit. The waiting room experience alone is SHAMEFUL at best. Listening to the front desk staff speak so disparagingly about patients is how each appointment starts off, no joke! The doctor is among the worst of the worst. No formal or ANY medical education to even practice in the US? This must be a joke! Sadly, it is not. Her bedside manner, complete lack of concern, ZERO empathy and only there to humiliate you, I say, AVOID!
I'm sorry that a denial for an early refill for narcotics causes you to think that I am a bad physician, but I have to follow the DEA licensing regulations.
