What People Say About Dr. Ravinder Agarwal, MD

He did a good allergy test on my back. Then came in and took a pen and scraped down my back twice. And it hurt too. Then he asked to see my phone and took pics. Then said he wanted to do blood test. So I had both done in same day. He was the worst I’ve ever seen. Just moved to Iowa and was looking for good allergy dr. I have so many food allergies in the past 3years that I get tested once a year. He was rude I had my feeling to get up and walk out. I wish I would’ve. He does not listen to patient and I was so upset when I left there I was inTears. He did not even measure each puncture. Just took the pics. He decided it wasn’t that accurate. If I could post the pics on here I would. Will not go see him again!

He failed to diagnose my wife's allergic reaction, it was diagnose later with the same symptoms. He made her come in again after testing so he could bill her one more time, only to get results, rather than calling her to tell her the diagnosis. He has the worst bedside manner I've ever experienced. Border line unprofessional

I was referred to Dr. Agarwal for constant itching (without hives.) As part of is exam, he palpated my stomach, asked me a couple of questions, then ordered a blood test and chest Xray. Upon receipt of the latter, his office called and told me to see my GP as soon as possible. She then referred me to my gastroenterologist. I had a massive hiatal hernia. I was then referred to a surgeon. I will be having surgery later this summer. I can't thank him enough for recognizing something was wrong.

I suffered with dermatitis on my hands, arms, legs, and face. I saw three Dermatologists who all said that it was a form of eczema from hand washing. Dr. Agarwal recommended patch testing because he believed I had a contact allergy. I had a sensitivity to the chemical accelerators used to manufacture surgical/exam gloves. I made a switch to accelerant free exam and surgical gloves and I can thankfully say that since May 2017 I have not had any type of dermatitis. Thank you Dr. Agarwal!
