Dr. Agarwal is my regular Ob-gyn and she’s consistently awesome. She knows her stuff and listens to her patients, but she’salso sensitive and empathetic — she understands that certain visits or situations can be uncomfortable or stressful for some people and she’s great at calming your nerves. I had to use another doctor when Dr. Agarwal was booked up and it was pretty eye-opening as to how great I’d had it with Dr. Agarwal. Glad I found her!

Dr. Agarwal is just lovely, and has the experience, as well as a great memory to back it up! Iwas overdue for a check up and she remembered so much about me, after only having seen her a few times in 2018. She makes me feel like no time he passed between visits and is a careful listener. I could not recommend her more highly.

I really like Dr. Agarwal. She has a great bedside manner, gentle hands and is thoughtful about her treatment plans etc. Her staff is friendly and nice. The wait time is long, though, and the ambiance is not great in the waiting area-- the office could do with a refresh and face lift, it feels a little grimy on the edges. I would give higher review stars if it wasn't for the wait and the office.

I love the office - very neat, orderly, kind staff. I am always in and out pretty quickly. Dr. Agarwal is direct and open with you, always straight to the point and will walk you through all the information at hand. She always errs on the side of caution, which duh, I appreciate when it comes to my body and health. I can't get enough of her staff. Mostly younger women, they are always SO kind and make me feel at ease. Cannot recommend this doctor/office enough.

After reading all Dr. Agarwal’s fantastic reviews, I made an appointment at her Bronx office. I live in Long Island and It took me an hour and a half to get there , but it was well worth the trip . Dr. Agarwal listened to all my fertility concerns and addressed them all without judgment, as well as a plan of action for me to follow. I’m actually looking forward to my next visit, which has never happened before!

I’m really surprised by all of the glowing reviews here. Let’s start with the receptionist, who was very cold. I will give the office credit for taking me right away. There was no wait time at all. The nurse practitioner was really sweet and professional. Dr. Agarwhal also started out being pleasant, but then she performed my Pap smear. It was very painful. I’ve had dozens of Pap smears and most of them have caused me only minor discomfort. When I reacted to the pain, Dr. Agarwhal acted as if I was bothering her. She said, “what is going on here?”. She acted as though I were being a drama queen about it. Also, she didn’t give me a sheet to put over my legs for the sake of modesty during the exam. I probably won’t be returning to her next year. BTW, thank you to the people who posted who mentioned the lack of sanitary practices. I didn’t notice that, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not happening, and patients should be made aware of it.

I highly recommend Ruchi as a caregiver. She is informative, to-the-point and very patient to make sure you understand your care. I also feel like she was more thorough than other practitioners to make sure we checked all the boxes before making a decision on how to move forward.

Dr. Argarwal was great. The office staff could use a little more training. The girl at the front desk charged me a co-pay when she wasn’t supposed to. Not a big deal but being a little more informed and aware of patients would help.

The issue I have w/ this office is that they are impossible to get in touch with. If you call the phone number, you get a "voicemail is full" message. There isn't even call back service! What if I were pregnant and needed to speak to someone right away? The doctor herself is fantastic and what I like about her is that she is direct, while still maintaining good bedside manner. She always makes me comfortable. The (2nd ave) office, however, and their management system really needs overhauling. It's outdated. And calling the office on the phone shouldn't be impossible.
