Dr. Agarwal could not have been more warm, reassuring AND thorough. She immediately put me at ease, took time to answer all of my questions and also respected my time with her efficiency.

Seems to have hired a new desk/office staff, which is much improved.

I have had only good experiences at Dr Agarwal’s office. I have been her patient for a little over a year now. I usually go to her New York office. The reason I only give 4 stars is because I usually have to wait a little while past my scheduled appt time.

Dr. Agarwal was incredible! She and her staff were very professional and kind. They never made me feel rushed or like I was a burden in any way. They went above and beyond to make sure I had a positive experience. They worked with me to help me understand what my insurance does and does not cover and made me feel confident about the decisions I was making. They use an efficient system for posting lab results and made me feel at ease in a stressful situation. This was my first visit and I can

I was very disappointed with my experience. The office was not especially clean, the receptionists were not polite. They did something weird with the paper work so that my insurance wouldn't cover it then I was billed for a number of optional tests that I did not authorize or ask for. When I called the office to discern why they had done the tests, the receptionists could not have been ruder, basically calling me stupid. Ended up being a very expensive way to rule her out as my Doctor.

I've liked her in the past. She made a big deal to contact me after being concerned about some test results and answered all my questions. I'm reading here and on ZocDoc that her receptionists are exceptionally rude and unprofessional. It's such a long theme over the years. Has she not seen these reviews? It's astonishing. Just making my appt was pretty stressful. Rude, impatient. Incredible, for something so simple as making an appt.

Dr. Agarwal was not remotely helpful to me looking for post-menopausal suggestions and even less helpful to my 18 year old daughter who was supposed to be there for her first gyn appointment. Plus, the extremely rude and loud receptionist embarrassed my daughter in front of everyone in the waiting room (Second Ave Manhattan office). I will never step foot in that office again and wouldn't recommend unless you are desperate for someone who will take your insurance.

Although Dr. Argawal herself is a good doctor, her receptionist at her Bronx location are unprofessional in every sense of the word. They are rude and talk down to the patients. They do not answer questions/are not helpful at all, and when they do answer questions, the response is not helpful and they are rude about it.

My experience with the doctor herself has been nothing but positive. She makes you feel at ease, is professional, takes the time to talk to you. Her desk staff, however, are horrible and unprofessional. I spoke on phone to Epy. As I explained billing problem, she cut me off, raised her voice, would not let me say another word, was rude and dismissive, telling me "I don't know what they billed you for". I said "excuse me" to try to get two words in and her response was a snarky "excuse you".
