Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Spoke with staff making appointment. They were very clear about instructions and financial policies. Very professional. The doctor was very kind and explained things clearly. She said she was now "my mama bear" and would plan my treatment accordingly. Glad someone still cares about patients in 2022.

I came to her with a weird eyelid bump and she removed it. She also proved my tear ducts were normal- she is not trying to do surgeries that are not necessary. Much appreciated.

Bright star on a rainy day! Had significant trouble with my double vision and feeling very blessed for the clear understanding. This is a complex topic, drowned myself googling. I had a full workup by Dr Agarwahl and she made sure I was safe! I am so pleased that I am improving, and very grateful to Dr A for doing the whole workup. Glad I dont have anything nasty. On my way to recovery and appreciate her explanations.

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

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
