My experience with Dr. Aggarwal and his team has been extremely positive. This procedure is more than about a singular person but rather the team they have assembled so we can achieve the best possible results. From the first interview through post surgery follow-up, Dr Aggerwal and his team were knowledgeable, compassionate and thorough. Any questions that came up both pre and post surgery were all promptly answered. Even to the extent of his nutritionist answering one of my questions concerning calcium chewables while I was at the store. I my opinion, Dr Aggarwal was the best choice for this surgery.

I am very happy that I chose Dr. Aggarwal to be my surgeon. He is a friendly, funny, and thorough doctor that made me feel comfortable with my life changing decision to have the gastric sleeve surgery. When I first met him at a WLS seminar, I felt confident that he was well-skilled and that I could trust him with my life. I am 7 weeks out, and I am so lucky to have Dr. Aggarwal and his staff as my support team during this experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Aggarwal if you are considering Bariatric surgery.

Hi, I had vsg surgery on 7/30 and left the hospital on 8/1/19. Dr. Aggarwal came to check on me SEVERAL times each day and that made me feel really good emotionally despite how i was feeling physically. I've spent so much time in/out hospitals and rehabs with my parents and their doctors never came more than 1x a day to check on them. I appreciate my doctor for making me feel cared for. The entire surgical and nursing staff were amazing as well.

Dr. Rajesh Aggarwal took such wonderful care of me, explaining things carefully to make sure I understood everything. He couldn't have been nicer or more professional. He's smart and kind. I was very pleased with my experience. It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. When I say the doctor and all the other employees made me feel that I was in safe hands and even made me smile when I left, then you can believe they are the best. I am truly grateful and appreciative with their follow-up and willingness to answer questions. I was truly impressed with your nice facility and the caring staff and friendly can do attitude and smiles. All this adds up to customer service you rarely see these days! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!!!

To start, Dr. Aggarwal was AMAZING! When I 1st decided to have the Gastric Sleeve done I didn't know where to turn. I blindly chose Thomas Jefferson hospital. When I tell you that it was the best decision I have ever made in my life. Anyone who wishes to have this surgery should look to Dr. Aggarwal. He's patient, gentle, informative, understanding, and kind. He never leaves room for unanswered questions. Procedure was pure success. Glad I chose him.

I would recommend Dr.Aggarwal in a heartbeat he was great! He was very kind he also came to check on me 3 times after the surgery I thought that was impressive because I know he’s a really busy guy. I stayed in the hospital for 1 night went home listened to everything he told me and I couldn’t be better. I’m 21 days off to my second chance at life. Thanks to Dr. Aggarwal. He even remembered my cousin taking care of me. He used staples and glue and you can’t even tell where I was cut at . Thanks!

I highly reccomend Dr Aggarwal to anyone who is considering VSG. I actually "shopped around", before deciding which surgeon wiuld be the best fit for my needs. He is very thorough, and he takes care to ensure that, as a patient, you are not experiencing any adverse side effects of the surgery or medications. He actually rolled me into the OR and he checked on me throughout my hospital stay. Having said that, it would be great if he offered more availability.

I am almost three weeks post sleeve surgery and I couldn't be happier than my choice of Dr. Aggarwal! He is professional, caring, knowledgeable, and has an excellent bedside manner. He kept me and my family informed at every step of the process. He visited me the night of my surgery to check how I was doing before going home, mind you after being at hospital for over 12 hours. I would recommend him to anyone and EVERYONE considering bariatric surgery.

Dr. Agarrwal is a very warm and kind doctor who has his patient’s best interest at heart. He is a well-trained and highly skilled surgeon. Having this surgery has helped me tremendously. I am only 6 weeks out and I feel so much better already. I would highly recommend Dr. Agarrwal if you are considering Bariatric surgery.
