Love her!!!!
I’m completely in love w Dr Agarwal: she saved my life! I had recurring CIN III and piece by piece, she removed pie like pieces of my cervix until she found the lesion. Now, I’ve seen her several times and feel like I’ve come to know her; when she’s come to greet me before surgery, I’m always so happy to see her, as if she’s an old friend, and she also comes in w a big smile. Sure, the administrative staff could do a better job, but I’ll weather all that nonsense to see this woman

Awful, awful gynecologist. After we spent 1.5 hours traveling out of town for an appointment--which was wound up being a video conference, and Upstate never contacted us--she had absolutely no compassion. I was treated like an inconvenience from the moment I walked through the door. I attempted to switch doctors, and they wouldn't do it as not to "step on each other's toes."

I recently had surgery done by Dr. Agarwal. The surgery went wonderfully and my stay in the hospital was much shorter than I expected. Very little pain and my recovery is going smoothly so far. I appreciate her expertise in this field, and I think she is, by far, one of the best Oncologists in the area. Thanks Dr. Agarwal — Francine

Dr. Agarwal was recommended to me by my gynecologist because I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She scheduled my surgery quickly and explained fully the procedure, recovery and any risks. Dr. Agarwal did a wonderful job and recovery was very quick. I would highly recommend her.

I was impressed at the way she explained my situation to me and how she put most of my fears to rest with her directness and thoroughness. She even took the time to show me my CT scan results and explain what they showed. She never made me feel that I was being rushed.
