I would have had a great review for this doctor if she didn't leave me wondering the status of my pregnancy. Told me I may have a medical emergency, yet seems to have left the office today without updating me onmy results. She told me to call her office for results to be told they are available but she is unavailable to tell me what they are and that she would call me to go over them today. Now, I am here losing my mind for the weekend. Her mailbox is full and there is nothing else it seems I can do but leave this review right here. I am literally scared for my life.

Ruchi is the absolute best. Takes time with you, asks questions, and listens to any concerns you may have. The doctor in training that was with her was also a delight. My only feedback is that the physical space of theoffice leaves a lot to be desired, but I'm not there for gorgeous vistas -- I'm there to meet with a kind and knowledgeable doctor. Highly recommend Dr. Agarwal!

Through with questions and physical exam. The Pap smear was uncomfortable (I mean it is a Pap smear, and my first one), but she helped me relax, was quick etc. wait time wasn’t too long, but the building looks a littleold on the inside, so it might look sketchy to some people, but it is clean, and looks like any doctors office would. Would recommend if in the Bronx area.

A friend recommended I see her after sharing how unhappy I was with my recent experience with my usual OBGYN. I am SO happy she did. Dr. Agarwal was so patient with me and answered all of my questions with responsesI could understand. She didn't make me feel rushed or bad for coming in with so many questions. I would highly recommend her and am so happy to have her as my OBGYN now.

Unfortunately, I found her very abrupt and cold. I prefer to have a different type of relationship with my gynecologist. Honestly, I do not know if I will return for my annual next year. Probably not.

I thought the doctor was nice until I asked her for blood work because I am a person who did not follow traditional medicine when it came to treating cancer because it made me violently ill. I have done a lifestylechange and am working with practitioners who support that decision. I went to this doctor to make sure I was in good health and requested from her the panels I do to watch my markers and various blood levels and values. She refused to give me these tests and instead referred me back to my oncologists, who by the way won't work with me because I refused treament. I was not asking for anything extreme. She said she would not know how to read them. I know how to read them and I'm not a doctor. They are pretty simple to read. She said she would not know what to do about it. I know what to do. Doesn't the individual get credit for knowing what to do with their values. She could have given me a prescription for them but refused. And if they came back abnormal her only obligation was to refer me out.

I recently moved to a new location, and was nervous to see a new doctor. After reading the reviews, I thought I'd give Well Care ObGyn a try, and I was not disappointed! All of the staff there were very friendlyand helpful. I did wait a little bit, but didn't feel like the wait time was unreasonable. She was very efficient with procedures, yet it didn't feel rushed. She made me feel comfortable and cared for, and answered all of my questions patiently.

I had written a glowing review the last time I had visited, but unfortunately had a different experience today. I had a more invasive procedure done this time and the doctor did not seem to have patience with me during it.Her curtness heavily added to how uncomfortable I was during and after the procedure. The nurse and medical student did a fantastic job de-escalating throughout the process and I would highly recommend having them in the room with you if you feel uneasy about gynecological procedures.

I get nervous with gyno appointments because in the past, I never had much luck with finding a doctor I felt comfortable with. I was so happy with my appointment with Dr. Agarwal! She is kind, really goes through your medicalhistory thoroughly, has good bedside manner, and did a painless, quick exam. I will definitely be sticking with her!

I love Dr. Agarwal, I've been going to her for about 4 years and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I went to the Bronx location, and the wait time was longer because other patients don't come to their correct appointment times--It'snothing on Dr. Agarwal's part. The east side location has way less of a wait time. Dr. Agarwal always answers all of my questions, is kind, takes her time to help the patient out, and always makes me feel comfortable and reassures any worries or concerns. Highly recommended.

Dr. Agarwal takes my pain seriously, which can be hard to find in a doctor (even in female GYN's) as women's pain is often undermined. I really appreciated her taking me seriously, thoroughly reviewing my previous medical records, and layingout for me several possibilities for what might be going on along with next steps.
