I'd like to thank Dr. Agarwal and her assistant Tracy, for making my visit on January 12 a pleasant experience. I was apprehensive, but she put me at ease and I feel that I'm in good hands now.

DO NOT waste your time seeing this doctor! Look through all the reviews and read the ones that are 1 star and judge for yourself. I have never been more disgusted, frustrated and let down this much in my life by this doctor and by the staff she employs. There are NO health and safety procedures being followed here. NO temperature checks and NO questions in regards to your possible or actual exposure to COVID. Just hello, do you have your credit card so we can make it easier to process payments? Dr. Madhu R. Agarwal has no bedside manner, no empathy, no personality and must be a money hungry person fueled by greed. Look at what other people say about how she bills people! Her staff are no better and are liars. After weeks of waiting to get an appointment, we showed up right on time at 7:30AM only to he told, oh sorry, we cancelled all appointments today. We called one time and sent an email was their justification. Did they pay me a missed office fee for taking the day off work an

Not willing to see beyond her specialty and sending me out for costly analyses when data from the office already pointed out the issue.

Just an amazing doctor. So compassionate and caring. I felt completely comfortable with her from the start. She works with you to diagnose and treat. I could not be more grateful for having found such an incredible doctor.

If you’ve been recommended to see her , run don’t walk. She is amazing. Just had my follow-up after surgery, results exceeded my expectations. Great bedside manner. She made the procedure understandable, the expectations realistic.

Today is the 17th of December and marks two months from when I received strabismus surgery from Dr. Madhu Agarwal on my right eye. I wish I could give 100 out of 5 stars to her and the team! I had esotropia strabismus (inward turn of the eye) in my right eye all my life and it was consistent. I would not say it held me back in life, but it definitely lowered my confidence. Having done my research on the surgery and everything involved, I met with two doctors. I do suggest meeting with more t

Love Dr. Argawal. She is an excellent physician and made me feel very comfortable in her office. She is very straight forward and tells you like it is, but is also very kind hearted. I drive from Riverside to Newport Beach because she is worth it! :)

I traveled from out of state to see Dr. Agarwal after reading all of her good reviews and reviewing her website. She was not compassionate to me and my visit was less the 10 minutes maybe less the 5. I was in shock after expecting a warm compassionate doctor.
