Patient Comments (6)
Noblesville, IN |
Did extensive rotator cuff repair. As it became apparent the outcome was not going to be positive Dr. referred patient to neurosurgeon for neck pain. Neurosurgeon did testing and scoffed at this referral and said there was no problem with neck. Haven't gone back since, shoulder still has pain and poor range of motion. Would NOT recommend.
in Indianapolis, IN |
Dr. Agrawal and his staff were the most attentive, concerned and at times funny which put you at ease. They listened to my concerns and addressed all the issues I was having. I would recommend him for anyone having shoulder issues with a quickness. They are the best.
Does not listen or treat patients with respect and it is a get in, get out as fast as possible practice.
in Carmel, IN |
Dr. Agrawal repaired my right shoulder in 2012. The experience could not have been better and the results have been outstanding now approaching 4 years out. He'll be repairing my left shoulder this year. Dr. Agrawal referred me to other brilliant physicians for tests and prerequisite procedures he recommended and I was equally impressed and happy with them and the results. When it comes to shoulders, you're not going to find anyone better.
Greenfield, IN |
He did an excellent job diagnosing, recommending conservative treatment vs. surgery. Referred to an expert physician (not a technician) for nerve and muscle tests prior to surgery. Surgery with uncomplicated recovery - honest about length of time for recovery. Highly recommended

2 shoulder operations (rotator cuffs on each side) with Dr Agrawal. He included allogeneic graphs to attachment sites that were not covered by Medicare, but were the right thing to do to ensure secure attachments. Outstanding!
