Verified Patient Reviews
Everyone is great as usual
Friendly, professional staff. Dr Agarwal answered all of my questions and gave me recommendations for my symptoms. This was my first visit with Dr.Agarwal and She was professional , caring, and put me at ease during the exam.
She was very warm and easy to talk too. Over all a pleasant visit.
Dr. Agarwal was very informative, knowledgeable, and professional. The entire staff was very friendly.

Dr. Agarwal and her assistant made me feel super comfortable throughout my visit. She was very helpful and professional.
I love Dr. Agarwal and her team! You feel welcomed as soon as you come in for your appointment. She truly cares for her patients and is informed of advances made in woman's healthcare. If you want someone who genuinely cares, is informed, and has your best interest at heart please go see Dr. Agarwal!!!
I love her, she’s honest and just absolutely awesome!
Very easy, fast visit and Dr. Agarwal and her team were so friendly!
Dr. Agarwal was very professional and made me feel at ease during my appointment. Would recommend
Office is in need of update and visit from a health department. Exam rooms so close to waiting room I heard another patient’s entire exam, while seeing a medical assistant walking around on a cellphone wearing gloves. In my own exam room, I observed an open bucket containing speculums in some sort of cleaning solution next to overflowing blood-tinged sharps container. Standard modesty draping during visit not observed. Physician provided limited verbal information during visit re: what procedure was next, what to expect during exam. Will not return. Shocking that Zocdoc listed so many positive reviews - legitimacy questionable at best.
Dr Agarwai restored by confidence and respect for the OB/GYN practice. She took time to answer my questions in a simple and direct manner, making medical connections clear unlike my previous Doctors. Thanks Doc!
I am so fortunate to have Dr. Agarwal as my doctor, she is the absolute best you can ask for in a doctor. No matter how busy she is, she always makes time for her patients, and is caring and compassionate. It is so hard to find someone as dedicated to their practice as this lovely doctor. I have been seeing her for many years, and hope to always continue.
I adore this doctor. She is kind and helpful and professional. Her staff is wonderful and always cheerful. I would never go anywhere else
She very patiently and thoroughly answered all the questions I had about my different options (the pros and cons of certain medications and how to go about it with my insurance). She was overall friendly and informative and I was very pleased with my experience in her office.
Very professional office. All staff members were very nice and efficient.
Dr.Agarwal and her entire team were great. They made me feel comfortable. Very professional environment. She definitely knows what she is doing and is very passionate about it. She also gives great suggestions and is very understanding and respectful of your decision.
It was quick just needed a referral. And get my results
I love Dr Agarwal service she is wonderful and so helpful. I recived pleasant service from all her staff as well! keep up the good work guys see u soon!
So nice and personable! Super helpful and attentive to all my concerns. Definitely would recommend her to others!
Very personable and understands my questions. Always reassuring
She’s extremely friendly and is great at what she does!
She seems like an excellent doctor. Very nice bedside manner. I'd happily see her again.
Dr. Agawal is great, I'd highly recommend. Always timely, patient, and extremely helpful.
What a caring and reassuring doctor. Covers all bases, thoughtful, insightful a true blessing.
Honestly it was my first time there and they were amazing , the paper work was quick, the staff was quick , the doctor was amazing very nice and sweet.
Love Dr Agarwal! Is practical, to the point, and easy to speak with. Made me feel very comfortable
Dr. Agarwal is knowledgeable, thorough, & caring.
She is a professional Doctor . Very nice. The office was great.
Patient, calm, informative.
Doctor Agarwal was great! I waited less than 10 minutes to be seen and was in and out very quickly. Dr. Agarwal is very nice and makes the whole process very easy. I definitely recommend!
She is very nice and shows that she cares. I have nothing bad to say . She seems very knowledgeable and the staff is very helpful.
The Doctor herself was great but I wasn’t seen until an hour after my appointment time. It is a small place with one doctor so I give the benefit of doubt and will return again. My appointment itself was quick and the staff was very supporting!
Dr Agarwal and her staff are great -- I recommend. I'm not sure how I feel about the metal, non-disposable speculums used at this practice. Probably less wasteful, but I'd feel for more at ease with the disposable plastic ones that I've more commonly seen use. I however trust they know what they're doing! This detail /qualm aside, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this doctor.
the nurse who asked questions and drew blood was so down to earth and really made me feel comfortable. unfortunately, i went in bc i recently found out i am pregnant, but it turns out the doctor is no longer an OBGYN. she is now just a gyn so no pap was done. just some blood work. zoc doc still shows she is an OBGYN so that should be changed so no more women waste their time. i made another appt for an obgyn for tomorrow. other than that, the doctor was nice and made me feel comfortable as well.
It was a great experience overall. Dr. Agarwai put me at ease and answered all of my questions. Will definitely be returning!
I've been to many OBGYN and I truly respect her patience and care for the patient.
Dr. Agarwal is wonderful. She's sweet and knows what she's doing. But I do wish the office were slightly cleaner.
Dr Ruchi Agarwal was nothing short of amazing! She made me feel so at ease, had a wonderful bedside manner and was very informative on certain health tips/advice I had not been previously aware of. I am very happy with my visit and will continue to go to her.
They never pick up the phone and I felt rushed off.
Dr.Ruchi was so nice! She made me feel very comfortable on my first gyno visit. Also everyone in the office was very friendly and funny!
I think Dr. Ruchi Agarwal, is amazing she’s very nice and understanding.
The staff was very friendly, I was seen immediately and Dr. Agarwal was very nice and I felt very comfortable with her. She will definitely be my obgyn for the long run.
The office seems a little dirty/sketch cause it is in the basement, but this is pretty standard NYC doctor's offices. Dr. Ruchi is fantastic, no fuss, very kind and nice energy and super informative and too the point. I'm so happy I found her!
The office is small and a bit dingy. There was no space for me to put down my things. Also, I had to fill out paper forms that asked me a lot of the same questions I had already answered on Zocdoc. However, the admin, nurses, and doctor I interacted with were very kind, supportive, and straightforward with information. Also, I did not see any men on staff which I appreciate in a gynocology office.
Dr. Agarwal is great! She was so quick and professional with my IUD removal. The first time I showed up 15 min late to my appointment and they still saw me within 10 min of my arrival. This time I got there 15 min before my appointment and again, they saw me 10 min of my arrival, even before my appointment time! I'll definitely be back.
Excellent first time experience. Staff excellent, doctor excellent!!! Very short wait time.
I feel so comfortable here. Dr. Ruchi Agarwal has such a calming air about her. Fantastic bedside manner all-around. Annual check-up's take no time at all. I really feel I could confide in her and trust her to answer all my questions honestly and without judgment.
I always dread getting a new OBGYN, but Dr. Agarwal was amazing. She made me feel so comfortable and was lovely to talk to. I'm honestly so glad I found her!
Fast & painless visit. Came in a bit early to fill out paperwork, then was seen right away at my appointment time when I finished. The MA, Amanda took a detailed history & was very professional. Dr. Agarwal herself was very knowledgeable in answering my questions and kept the visit short & efficient without feeling rushed.
Excellent! Very gentle and professional. I will definitely see her again.
Clean office, incredibly friendly staff, and wonderful doctor.
I have been going to Dr. Agarwal for the past 3 years and she is by far the best Doctor I have ever had. She has fantastic bedside manner and genuinely cares and listens to your concerns or needs. Highly recommend Dr. Agarwal!!
My visit was great but the medical assistant need to be a little more professional and not talk about outside lives while tending to the patient
I have been seeing Dr. Agarwal for 3 years and she is amazing. Very thorough, always listens to all questions and concerns, highly recommend her!
She’s so awesome straight to the point and makes you feel very welcomed
She’s very knowledgeable and straight to the point but I do think she rushes the appointments.
It was great.
I actually look forward to my visits with Dr. Agarwal and her staff- I've been going here for 3 years now. She always has great advice and makes you feel comfortable, she doesn't judge and just gets right to the point. Blood work is always quick and painless, coming from someone who freaks every time! Love her.
Great Doctor aka Bomb a** GYN doctor !!! First year with her and I love her because she very informative and cares about her patients!! This will be my present and future GYN especially when I do decide to have more children one day!! Great staff !!
Thought that Dr. Agarwal was unenthusiastic and rushed the appointment. I think this doctor could have tried getting in touch with me a bit more and practiced better listening skills. Won't be coming back to this doctor.
I was seen within 30 minutes of arriving, and the staff is very warm/ friendly! All of my questions were answered and I will definitely be seeing her as my regular doctor.
She has a lot of appointments so she was very quick and not super personable, but she did the job. The office is very cluttered.
She’s very attentive and a very good doctor
Really enjoyed my visit to Dr. Agarwal. I was quite nervous but her manner put me at ease. The nurse who took my vitals was super friendly and easy to talk to, and the girl who did my bloodwork after my visit with the Dr. was also great- I hated the idea of a needle but she was pro- quick and painless! Front desk staff was kind and wait time was only about 15 minutes.
Dr. Agarwal is excellent. Nobody really looks forward to having a pap smear, but her professional and pleasant manner made the process less uncomfortable. Office is clean and staff is friendly.
In her downtown location, although fsr it is vwry nice, i was in and our of thw ofdice withinf thw half hour of my aooointment time. She is very polite and straight to th point.
I was treated wonderfully by all the staff, from receptionist to doctor. I was really surprised at how quickly I was seen.
Dr. Agarwal is patient, smart, kind and attentive. She answers all of your questions, doesnt rush through anything. She is very professional and thorough. Im so grateful I found her!
Dr. Agarwal was friendly, knowledgeable and straightforward. She will be my new go-to for women's health issues.
She was very nice made me feel very comfortable.
I really liked the treatment I received my Dr. Agarwal.
She was very easy to talk with about things. I could tell she cared about my every worry.
It was a pleasant experience
Dr. Ruchi was very nice and knowledgeable. Her staff was personable, professional, and willing to answer questions about the process.
My first time visit. She has a great bedside manner! Very professional.
Again, Dr. Agarwal was open minded, listened carefully and gave us excellent advice and feedback.
Dr. Argawal has a wonderful bedside manner. She is very easy to talk to and extremely professional. I would highly recommend her!
Staff friendly and very clean office.
Very nice. Straight to the point.
Dr Agarwal was very knowledgeable, thorough and professional with her questions and with her answers to my questions. I felt that she cared about my health.
Dr. Agarwal has been my doctor for years because she is the absolute best. Professional, thorough, and caring...and I never have to wait long to be seen. I love the new office renovations!
While I've been seeing a NP for most of these needs, she thought I would be better served by an actual OB/GYN. After a little research, I found Dr. Agarwal-- I was not disappointed. I saw her having just completed all yearly exams and bloodwork and she really listened and understood me to be a patient who knows her body and has done her research. Fun fact: She's an IUD pro-- having inserted thousands of them in her career. Our meeting went so well and I am thrilled to be under her care.
It was awesome! The staff is great and fast! Office has a cozy feeling
+ Was seen ontime no waite + Dr answered all my questions , and had non judgmental addatuide + Has an online system to get test results - Room was dirty the trash can was overflowing - The brushes used for paps were out in the open not covered by anything -Found the pap test to be painful [not gental like how other reviews raved] no lube was used and even found the bi maunail exam to also hunt. I was not expecting there to be pain since exam Ive had in the past had lube n were pain free. - Dirty speculum was left in the hand washing sink after dr and nurse left. Was verry disappointed since there were so many postive reviews for this Dr , and thought I had found a doc to stick with but after finding the exam to be painful n no lube and seeing the dirty speculum left in the hand washing sink , I won't go back.
I love Dr Agarwal office. The staff are always nice. The nursers have great Positive attitudes and Dr Agarwal is fantastic. I always feel comfortable talking to her and with the examination.
I love her.
She answered my questions, did my exam, did a thorough history and current status check. And she had me out of there in less than 45minutes from when I arrived. A very good appointment
Professional intelligent kind
Very kind, Dr. Argawal guided me through everything.
She was able to help me with my menopause and my daughter with her menarche. I can't say enough about her and her staff and their non-judgemental professional warm manner.
I feel like I hit the jackpot. A gynecologist I like that takes my insurance , has a professional staff, and is convenient to get to. She saw my daughter and me and we both loved her. She's not judgemental, but she gave excellent advice and tool our issues very seriously.
Dr. Agarwal is very professional and has shown great interest in my well-being. I'm very pleased with the way she treats me since the moment she greets me until I leave her office.
Very informed doctor
Visit was accurate and the Doctor and her staff gave me all the information I needed and answered my questions in a kind and professional way.
The best doctor I have come across in all fields. I feel very comfortable with her and appreciate her service to people in the community.
I absolutely love her and have been going to her for 3 years now. She shows that she truly cares about your health and is super informative.
This was the most pleasant experience I've had any any doctor ever!!!!! Highly recommend
Dr. Argawal is caring and knowledgeable as always!
Very efficient and still addressed all my concerns. Her nurse practitioner was great as well, very thorough. Definitely want to keep her as my primary gynecologist!
She was delightful and her staff was equally so. Definitely recommend!
The young lady in the front desk was very nice and prompt. Very sweet nurse and the doctor was very helpful. Great attention, and very thorough which I really appreciate. My appointment went smoothly. So happy to have found a place that's good and close.
Love Dr Ruchi. That's all I have to say.....
Extremely professional from the first moment to the last; highly recommend Dr. Agarwal. (Note: the suite is in the basement of the building with poor cell service, so do not count on using the Internet to entertain yourself while you wait.)
My 1st visit with Dr. Agarwal. I highly recommend her, she was thorough & professional.
The doctor is great but the staff is disorganized. At my most recent appointment, they tried to charge me a co-pay even though my annual is supposed to be free. In the past they have called me in for appointments I wasn't yet due for and I have not received test results until multiple follow-up calls were made. Also have had confusion over Rx's called in to my pharmacy. Will likely seek out a new OBGYN due to disorganization. Too bad because the doctor is friendly and thorough.
I am very content with attention and advice the doctor gave me.
She was very nice and made me feel comfortable.
This is the second year that I have gone to Dr. Argarwal and I can't say enough great things about my experience with her. She is thorough, knowledgeable, personable and professional. I think I have finally found an OBGYN that I will want to stay with indefinitely.
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. This was my first visit and I can confidently say, I will be back regularly!
I saw Dr. Agarwal for a colposcopy and have seen her regularly for three years. She always takes her time to explain what she's doing, which is something that I really appreciate.
Dr. Agarwal is so kind talking about sensitive subjects and then freely laughing with jokes. Really love getting to visit, the only time I've waited long, I was late myself for my appointment- that's on me!
Loved Dr Agarwal and her team of nurses/assistants. Even the front desk girl was pleasant. Quick, easy, professional, and one of the most enjoyable doctor's visits I've had in a while.
Great doctor awesome staff
Worst front desk person ever. The Doctor is ok. But I felt it was rushing and I didn't feel comfortable with that. My consult didn't take more than 10 min with her. Disappointed.
I thought Dr. Agarwal was great and knowledgeable, but I felt like her team of aids were not what I expected. They were very obviously all students and didn't necessarily make me feel comfortable in what they were doing. They kept whispering and asking questions like they were unsure how to proceed, so I wasn't sure what they were doing was even right. When one came in the room to ask me the preliminarily questions, she had them just hand written on a piece of paper and then was handwriting my answers...didn't seem professional or make me feel comfortable that someone else wasn't just going to accidentally get a hold of the paper and read it all. I especially didn't like that the facility is so small to where I could hear the entire conversations of patients before me. That completely ruins the confidentiality of doctors appointments, and I felt uncomfortable not only that I knew this other patients personal information but that others could likely hear my appointment too.
Such a genuine, sweet woman. I felt very comfortable with her.
Unprofessional and scary. Low sanitary facilities! I was literally inside of a closet for my annual paps and I walked away when I saw whatvshe was going to put inside of me. Her clothe was very dirty with pen ink ans other strange liquids. She was also very rude! I took a video and pics of her facilities and I am going to post them in Yelp.
Had my first visit to see Dr. Agarwal recently. She was fantastic. The appointment was quick and I was in and out in about 40 minutes. I'll definitely be back to see her as I've had a hard time finding someone I really like in the city. The reception staff however, was abrasive and harsh. Not a great way to start your morning. I actually almost walked out due to how rude this girl at the desk was. She spoke down to me like I was stupid, didn't speak clearly, and rolled her eyes when I asked her to repeat herself as a result. Get it together!
Dr. Agartala is a very good gynecologist. She calls you back and gives a thorough exam.
Very friendly, quick visit.
Always so Kinda and informative. Keeps you at ease.
Dr Agarwal was pleasant to speak with and very knowlegable, and concerned, about my issue. I will recommend her to only select women who should be cared for by the best.
I did not enjoy my visit, the office does not look nice and the receptionist is so rude and unkind. I felt unwanted and when I saw the doctor I was going through a hard time and I was considering having my IUD removed. She was pushy about me making a decision and I felt was insensitive to my situation. The nurse in the room, I wish I remembered her name was very sweet to me. However, my overall experience was bad and I would not return.
Dr. Agarwal is very easy to talk to and has a kind manner about her. I have only had one visit so far but I was already very comfortable with her and feel the same regarding the impending follow up. The rest of the staff at her office was also quite pleasant.
She is amazing! Really patient and caring. She made me so comfortable and chatted, so that I was distracted while she did what she had to do. Also, it was painless unlike doctors before.
Dr. Ruchi is great, the staff very efficient and mindful of your limited time. The appointment went as scheduled, the doctor explained everything and was very professional.
LOVED her! just told all my girlfriends about her as we're all always looking for a great gyno. thank you!
Great bed side manners, knowledgable and sweet.
Dr. Agarwal is simply the best! The wait time is never too long! And her staff is amazing!
I had an IUD inserted today and Dr. Agarwal was so kind and reassuring. She told me that if it hurt we wouldn't do the procedure. I held the nurse practionioners hand and they made me feel so comfortable and safe! I know the wait time sucks but she has to double book sometimes because patients have emergencys and/or cancel. She's GREAT!
I really liked her approach toward me as being a first time patient. i felt comfortable talking to her about the reason I came in.
Dr Agarwal is very warm and friendly. I felt very comfortable with her. She answered all my questions and made me feel relaxed and informed.
I was seen instantly with no wait at all. Dr. Agarwal is very thorough and kind and I look forward to my visits with her.
Went for annual check up and she immediately put me at ease with my anxieties. She takes the time to listen to you and is terrific at her job.
Very friendly and sweet!
Short and sweet and right to the point. Best gyno I ever had.
Dr Agarwal is very warm and made me feel at ease right away. I felt like she thoroughly read, and wanted to understand, the answers on the long forms that most doctors make you fill out, and then never acknowledge. She also tried to connect dots in my health based on family members. She was very connected to her role as a doctor, as well as to me as a patient.
I love going to Dr. Argarwal's Bronx location, by far the best OBGYN I have been to in the past 23 years.
The ladies on the front is so rude
She is very gentle and patient. Would recommend anyone to visit her.
Absolutely wonderful! Great DR.
Dr Ruchi Agarwal and her nurse were very nice and attentive. They helped with any questions and had great bedside manner. The office is a little dungeonesque, but they staff is nice and accommodating.
It was good. Wait time, pleasantness was all much better than last apt. I liked the doctors strategy/approach to my health care plan, and felt comfortable that I was in good hands
The receptionist was rude and unwelcoming. When I asked for a glass of water she kept me waiting for it and then handed me a Urine sample cup to drink from. The facilities did not look very clean, it was messy generally and they didn't seem to hold very high standards of cleanliness. They asked me how many sexual partners I have had - which I have never been asked before and other patients may be uncomfortable answering - and they made me sign the health data share document which again I have never had to sign. Dr Agarwal was very nice although not very gentle during the examination. An unpleasant experience overall.
Doctor was great! Unfortunately the receptionist staff was so incredibly unkind that I wouldn't schedule another visit (2nd Ave. 303 location). The receptionist called me and other patients "momma" several times which feels condescending and uncomfortable. At the very least unprofessional. It's unfortunate for the doctors because the receptionist serves a vital role for the overall comfortability of the patient and office environment.
Dr. Ruchi Agarwal is a very compassionate and helpful doctor. She takes the time to talk me through options, hear concerns, answer my many questions, etc. She absolutely puts her patients first. Highly recommended!
She helped ease my nerves and was very informative
I got my iud put in today so considering the situation, Dr. Agarwal was patient and comforting. So hard to come by in the obgyn. Thank god for her!
She was really friendly and I felt comfortable w her.
She was very friendly and personable and explained everything thoroughly.
She was awesome and the whole staff was too.. I really recommend her.
Nice doctor and staff. Wait time is not bad. Visits with the doctor are quite brief, sometimes wished she took more time to elaborate and clarify details.
I have been to Dr. Agarwal several times now for appointments, and can say without a doubt she is one of the kindest, most patient, and intelligent doctors out there. She takes her time with you, and listens to all concerns with genuine patience and attention. She has helped manage my severe, debilitating period pains to the point where I'm no longer suffering at all. She truly is a wonderful doctor and I recommend her to everyone.
The doctor is lovely, really puts you at east. The one blight on the experience was the receptionist. She has a ridiculous attitude both in person and on the phone. If I didn't like the doctor so much, it would be reason enough to not go back.
I love Dr. Agarwal - she is so easy to talk to and makes me feel so comfortable.
She's a great Doctor- very patient, caring, informative and professional. I'll definitely go back to her.
She is amazing!!!
Ruchi Agarwal was wonderful and professional!
she was professional and very polite
One of the most unpleasant gyno experiences. The rudest receptionist I've ever experienced with any medical room. This woman patronizes you if you ask questions. The exam room itself was dirty looking. It was also an extremely long wait. Chaotically disorganized. Whole experience was dismal. The Dr herself did the job ( had a STD screening) but from beginning to end, a horrible experience.
I began seeing Dr. Argawal in fall 2014, when I found a lump in my right breast. Dr. Argawal took immediate action to provide a diagnosis, offer appropriate referrals, and remain with me for follow-up care. Furthermore, a few short months after this, I presented with new symptoms that Dr. Argawal also pursued-- and once again provided appropriate referrals and offered follow-up care. Dr. Argawal has my utmost respect and has my highest recommendation.
Dr. Agarwal was extremely friendly. My only criticism would be that the office was a bit drabby.
While I really love Dr. Agarwal, I have on numerous occasions seen her receptionist be very dismissive to patients, often not helping them in situations when it would be very easy to do so.
Dr. Agarwal and her staff were all very helpful and attenative. They have a great system that gets you in and out in no time. At least it felt that way. The girl in front desk did come off as rude but turned out to be quite nice. My overall experience was very pleasant.
I had an IUD replaced and was worried it would be painful. When I got it insert years ago by another doctor it was extremely painful. Dr Agarwal made sure that I was on period when we replaced it and it did not hurt beyond a mild discomfort. I was relieved and so grateful to Dr Agarwal. She is definitely now my favorite OBGYN. Go and see her!
So happy that Ruchi takes my new insurance because the thought of being on the hunt for a new obgyn was devastating to me. She is definitely great,always comfortable when I come in.
She was very polite and listened attentively. Answered all questions I had
She was lovely, patient and thorough. There was an unusual wait time that day and everyone in the office apologized profusely. I think I waited about 40 minutes, but they assured me that was unusual.
I love Dr. Agarwal! I don't like going to the OBGYN but She makes me feel comfortable. She straight to the point and honest.The staff is always a lot of fun.
Extremely nice staff. As someone with doctor anxiety, this was a really great experience
All is good
The doctor was very pleasant and easy to talk to. She explains herself very we'll and asked if I had any questions.
Very personable doctor. Extremely professional and knowledgeable.
She is warm and kind and extremely personable. The office is tiny and cramped and the nurses and receptionist are rather cold and don't seem to like their jobs at all. But I highly recommend Dr. Ruchi.
Dr. Agarrwal was pleasant, sensitive, & sensible. The staff seemed happy to be working there.
Dr. Agarwal was very kind, attentive and knowledgeable. I did not feel rushed or disregarded at all which is so often the case with other doctors in the city. I will definitely be back!
Wonderful! She is awesome and her staff is great.
Dr. Agarwal is a great doctor and I feel very comfortable with her. She is great at managing expectations and is her experience and manner is very comforting.
Staff is highly unprofessional, rude, and disorganized. Don't bother.
She's the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. I wish I had known about Dr. Agarwal years ago, but am grateful for her today. Simply the best all around.
Love her, she very honest and makes me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Agarwal, is a wonderful obgyn.
Very friendly staff
Awesome doctor & staff!!
I was very disappointed as no one called me to reschedule my appointment or notify me that the doctor was on vacation. Waste of my morning.
I loved Dr. Agarwal! She answered all of my questions and gave me a range of options. She is also readily available by email for any questions.
Fantastic experience. Dr. Agarwal is very communicative and thorough. Couldn't ask for a better gyno.
She is professional and nice. The wait time was not great, and the receptionist was not the most pleasant.
Very well as all always!
I have to say that it was a very pleasant visit! Normally when you go to the GYN office you think it will automatically be uncomfortable. But it was very good from beginning to end. The girls in the front are very professional and well trained. They made sure that all my information was correct and kept me posted until it was my turn to see Dr. Agrawal. Dr. Agrawal is great and gentle. Not heavy handed and makes sure that you are aware of everything that is going to happen before it does. I will have to give 5 Stars! A+
This was my first ever visit to the gynecologist at 23 yrs old - went for a check up and pap smear and was very nervous. Dr. Agarwal was amazing and made me feel super comfortable with answering questions and made sure that she explained everything she was doing fully. I waited for about 30 minutes and was seen at 5:30 for a 5pm appointment - but the appointment itself only took about 30 minutes. Was nervous the pap smear would be very painful as a first timer but it was extremely quick and minimal to no pain. Would definitely recommend her to others!
hands down an amazing doctor! so happy when i found out my new insurance is accepted here!
She was so kind and took time answering my questions!
Dr. Agarwal is lovely, but unfortunately the professionalism of her front desk staff leaves much to be desired. The wait time (over 30 minutes after appointment time) is excessive--please have more respect for the time of your patients!
always nice and friendly,answers every question
She was very thorough, more so than I have ever experienced. She was very honest and straightforward which I highly appreciate. There is a wait time that is longer than 30 minutes, but that should be expected for the location and small size of the practice. She is worth that wait.
Dr Agarwal was very friendly and spent a good amount of time talking to me about my medical history and questions. The examination seemed more rushed, but overall a good experience and she responded quickly via the portal they provide you when I had a follow-up question.
Dr. Agarwal was very personable and addressed my needs quickly and fully. I highly recommend her, and scheduling through Zocdoc made it very easy.
The receptionist was passive aggressive and things had to go in her exact order so was frustrated when I went to sign in and give her my ID and Insurance because it was evident I needed to sign in and wait to be called before providing my information. She informed me there was no co-pay, but then I was called for the payment. The Nurse was very nice, but left my arm very bloody and bruised where I was gushing out of my bandaid and requested a new one. The doctor was cold and judgmental. The room is small and cluttered. The ability to get the online results quickly was great, but it took about a week for her to call me to review the results and prescribe my needed medication. The doctor knows her stuff, has several years of experience and she is efficient, but this place was not for me.
The doctor's assistant, Eppi, was especially warm and attentive. Great experience!
Staff was very friendly and efficient.
She is the best!
Dr. Agarwal inserted my IUD and I felt comfortable. The staff were helpful with my insurance and the nurse asked me how I was feeling. The rooms are always clean. Dr. Agarwal is a wonderful doctor. Answers all my questions and takes her time. I definitely recommend Dr. Agarwal.
Straight to the point, but for good reason. It's a small office. Easily busy with just 5 patients. Go figure. Beside the fact that someone got seen before me, it wasn't bad at all. Dr. asked medical history, as usual. Showed interest in more future doctors visits with her, so I like that she wants to steadily help me. I definitely feel comfortable, and will return for my next appt.
The nurse/medical assistant was very rude obnoxious no compassion sarcastic. She didn't weigh me nor take my height. She seemed upset because I would not further relay my reason as to why I needed a consultation with the Doctor I explained to her it was a very private matter and perferred to explain further to the doctor myself because I have a complicated medical issue ( ego tripping) when she called me in the second time she threw the paper gown on the bed told me to change but did not specify if I should take everything off just the top just the pants etc..back turned no eye contact slammed door on her way out . Very disappointed in this visit I brought the issue up to the doctor she seemed to have no concern about my medical condition or the behavior of her assistant and brushed me off completely! Maybe they will take matters serious when they start getting law suits.
Dr. Ruchi takes enough time to hear your concerns. She is great at following up with your issues and always gives her honest advice. I highly recommend her.
When I got to the office, there was a problem contacting my insurance, so I had to wait over an hour before I was seen by the doctor (not necessarily their fault, but was inconvenient). The office was outdated and didn't feel clean. Once I saw the doctor, she had not reviewed or even asked about any health history, and the information I had told the medical assistant minutes before was recorded incorrectly. I did not feel comfortable during this visit.
I had a great time with the doctor as l have before. She is a very caring and informative doctor, definitely my favorite doctor out of all the ones l have ever had. She has a positive energy to her and makes me feel comfortable. The student interns that have been there are also very welcoming. Thank You ZocDoc
Very pleasant, addressed all my concerns but also quick.
Dr. Agarwal is very personable and knowledgeable. This was my first visit and it will not be my last. She spent enough time addressing my concerns and explained everything to my satisfaction. I did not feel rushed. The wait time was minimal, even though I was late 20 minutes.
I adore Dr. Agarwal and the rest of her staff. They made an uncomfortable appointment really great and I felt well cared for.
She's so kind, thorough and respectful. I cannot recommend her more!
Dr Agarwal is wonderful. She is very intuitive, acts fast and efficiently, is very kind and warm-hearted. I had an emergency situation (an ectopic pregnancy with the IUD) and she acted in the best way: she made sure I had an ultrasound immediately and was rushed to the ER for an emergency surgery as the fallopian tube was rupturing. I am forever grateful to Dr. Agarwal.
I was content with service until I showed up for an appointment one of her secretary booked for me only to discover that the Doctor was scheduled to not be in for the day speak about a waste of time.
I enjoyed my time with Dr. Agarwal and would recommend her services.
Love the Dr very Profesional and very kind .. I would recommended to my family and friends
Dr. Agarwal was incredibly friendly and knowledgable during my appointment. She is very thorough while also being quick so you aren't at the appointment for hours. It couldn't have gone any better! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Agarwal to anyone looking for an OBGYN in the city.
Really wonderful bedside manner!
Dr Ruchi is an excellent doctor and also her staff. They really care about the patients.
Excellent - very thorough, explains everything, doesn't rush. Truly a helpful doctor.
The doctor is great! Very personable and thorough. The wait wouldn't be a problem, but there is absolutely no cell reception in or around the office. They should offer a guest wifi while you wait. I dreaded going only because I knew I couldn't do any work while I waited..
Very attentive, friendly, and professional staff. Everyone made me feel at ease and answered all of my questions with great knowledge without pushing any unnecessary drugs or products on me. Highly recommended.
Dr. Agarwal is a total gem — she listens and doesn't just try to throw medication at the problem, but comes at it from a diet/lifestyle angle as well. Love her!
It was good
She is very nice and professional
I don't know if it is a New York thing but I often find receptionists that work in in a doctor's office to be incredible rude and off putting. Is it really hard for a receptionist to smile and say good morning when you walk into the door? The receptionist at Dr. Ruchi office didn't even make eye contact with me or attempt to pronounce my name correctly.
Such a sweetheart! Very polite and compassionate ?? highly recommended.
She is very pleasant, calm and makes you feel at ease.
Her staff was extremely rude and condescending, and her offices are extremely run down on the basement level of a building - there were stacked cardboard boxes and supplies in a shower stall inside the examination room; was super sketchy.
She's always awesome!!!! Gives great advice on healthcare and is genuinely interested in her patients well being. I will visit her as long as I can!!!!!
Dr. Ruchi knows what she's doing. Very thorough and was able to offer great advice pertaining to my issues. She also comforted me as I was nervous at first.
Very professional and caring! Loved her
Great service i would definitely go back!
Great experience love her very patient and through
I think Dr. Ruchi is amazing. She's so smart and helpful she also makes you feel comfortable and she's very down to earth. I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks zocdoc!!!
Dr. Agarwal is wonderful. Minimal wait time, excellent bedside manner, doesn't rush you out. She seems to genuinely care about her patients. I highly recommend her!
She is wonderful and honest. She goes above and beyond and I think she is a fantastic doctor. Very helpful and takes her time explaining things to you.
Very pleasant! So polite and well spoken. She showed a genuine interest and offered the best solution for me. Very professional.
I loved it.
very knowledgeable and friendly. Office is small and wait time was long, but I didn't feel like just another patient to them. I will be seeing Dr. Agarwal for the foreseeable future!
The Dr and the entire staff is friendly and professional.
Dr. Ruchi is nice but her staffs are not helpful and disorganized. I saw her twice so far and thinking about switching to a different Doctor...
I enjoyed meeting Dr. Agarwal. She was very nice and I look forward to our next visit! I enjoyed the vibe in the office, removed some of my normal dr,'s visit anxieties.
First time there deffently would recommend it to anyone and would continue going here. Everyone was very good and nice.
I enjoy having her as my doctor because she treats me with such great care and quality.
Excellent, shows interest in any concern you have and she takes it very seriously
The doctor is great! I just wish the receptionist could improve her phone manner.
AMAZING bed side manner. Great doctor!
Great bedside manner, very friendly, thorough.
I had a great experience because the staffs and doctor were so friendly and they attended me very well. They were very clear with the information they provided and l felt very comfortable every step of the way.
Dr Agarwal is both approachable and professional. I've received excellent care from her and her team.
Dr. Agarwal is great! Funny, friendly, timely. I always feel comfortable at her office.
The doctor was nice but the communication with her staff didn't seem that coordinated. The nurse didn't know what my urine sample was for and the doctor told me they'd take a sonogram which then never happened. The nurse who drew my blood however, was amazing! Also, the receptionist is not that friendly and a bit slow.
This is a great clinic for general obgyn care. They were personable, considerate, and organized. Dr Agarwal makes you feel comfortable and answers any and all questions you may have. She's also very clear on information. I would definitely recommend! Also, the area around the office, the building, the clinic, and the exam rooms are all clean and nice!! Makes a big difference in NYC!
Dr. Ruchi was really nice and answered all of my questions. I went in for a regular check up and asked about IUD insertion. I ended up going back a week later for the insertion and the front desk staff, nurses, and nurse practitioners were all extremely nice and helpful. The front desk called my insurance to make sure everything was covered and Dr. Ruchi did a really great job of explaining everything including potential complications as well as what to expect over the next few months after IUD insertion. Overall I really like Dr. Ruchi and will be returning to her office.
loved it felt comfortable enough to talk about my issues
The visit was very fast and efficient. Dr. Agarwal was patient listened to my concerns and gave me great feedback. It was my first time seeing her and she made me feel comfortable throughout the entire visit. The staff was also very nice the whole time. Recommend her 100%!
Dr. Agarwal was so kind, super informative, and answered all of my follow-up questions. So happy I've finally found a great GYN in NY!
This is my second review but after I leave Dr. Agarwal I always feel like I must tell the world what a special doctor she is to always take the time for her patients no matter what. I am so blessed to have found her so many years ago and that she always makes time for her patients even on the busiest days. Thank you!
Everyone was so incredibly nice and efficient. Dr. Ruchi Agarwal was great.
Dr. Agarwal is great. She listens and explains. She also follows up on her prescriptions, calls you personally to talk about medical info, and is comforting and professional.
She was very unfeeling to me when I called her up when I was hemorrhaging. She told me to just go to the ER and never followed up. Horrifying.
Dr. Ruchi Agarwal is super sweet and easy to connect with. It's never a long wait and she is super knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend her!
I had a very good experience. The receptionist was great. She was very clear, explaining things that might be confusing. She was also very personable. Dr. Agarwal was very thorough, doing an extensive family history. The exam was quick and she addressed all my concerns in a timely manner and was on my way. Would definitely recommend her office.
She is the greatest! She is both kind and knowledgeable. I have felt comfortable with her since day 1 (about 3 years ago) and I'm glad I found her!
Matter-of-fact, kind, calm, gentle hands, non-judgemental, thorough -- basically an ideal gynecologist! Very clean and comfortable reception and exam room, and a very sweet receptionist.
Very friendly and helpful staff and great doctor, easy to talk to; didn't even feel the slightest pinch from pap smear. Definitely recommend.
Dr was very helpful and friendly! Her receptionist was great, too. The waiting room got a bit crowded around 12-1pm, but the receptionist did a good job of checking people in and being efficient while also friendly. Nurse who drew my blood was kind and distracted me (I don't like needles.) A nurse practitioner watched during my exam, which was a bit awkward but not that much more awkward than being nude in stirrups with a doctor. I was given the option to say no to letting the NP observe.
I think it was just fine!
My visit was pleasant and professional in a timely manner. Best GYN doctor in my book.
Excellent Doctor. Takes the time to listen and she is also very compassionate. The office staff is very professional and nice.
The office was very pleasant and efficient. Dr. Agarwal was warm and professional.
Great doctor A+++. Knowledgeable and caring
Dr. Agarwal was very quick yet thorough with the checkup. Also, the rest of her staff (the receptionist, nurse) were all extremely sweet and friendly.
Been looking for a doctor for quite a while and was so happy with Dr. Agarwal. She listened, was nice, and her front desk staff was polite, not much more I could ask for!
Great atmosphere and energy. This was my first visit to a GYN, I was very comfortable and I felt she was attentive. Definitely will stick with Dr. Agarwal.
Doctor and staff are so great, kind and professional! Highly recommended.
Doctor is kind and patient, happy to answer questions
Love her! So sweet and caring with a sense of humor!
Doctor Agarwal listened patiently and took the time to answer my questions properly. Highly recommended.
The visit was great. The wait time was short. The Dr. Prescribed me the medication I needed and fixed the script in a timely manner due to complications with my insurance.
One of the receptionists was rushing me to fill out important medical information which made me feel very uncomfortable. The doctor needs accurate information pertaining to my medical history to give me the right medical care. I did not need to be rushed--I could have finished the paperwork with the doctor.
We spoke about the reason for my visit, answered all my inquiries providing me with Pros and Cons.
Dr. Agarwal is fantastic!
Best doctor I've ever had, plus great staff and reasonable wait times (sometimes no wait at all, practically unheard of for NYC doctors). Love Dr. Agarwal!
My visit with Dr. Ruchi Agarwal was extremely pleasant and quick. Her beside manner was very comforting. She made me feel at ease. The females employees in the office we're just as professional. I was very nervous while on the table and the medical assistant was very, very comforting. Dr. Ruchi Agarwal will be my GYN for life. I highly recommend her and her staff.
Dr. Agarwal was such a delight. Friendly, professional, knowledgeable. Enjoyed all her staff as well. Highly recommend her as an OBGYN.
I had a slight emergency, and I e-mailed Dr. Agarwal to ask if she could squeeze me in, since she didn't have any openings for almost 2 weeks. She told me to call her assistant, who scheduled me for the same day. I appreciated Dr. Agarwal's concern, attention, and flexibility!
I am so glad I found her. I trust her, I can always ask my concerns and she provides a thorough explanation. Dr. Agarwal makes me feel comfortable.
Dr. Agarwal was the sweetest lady! This was my first time coming to her office and she made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. I would highly recommend Dr. Agarwal, solely based on her lovely demeanor!
Dr.Agarwal is the best. She is gentle and very professional.
Dr. Agarwal is fantastic!! She genuinely listens to you, and is very efficient. Wait time is minimal and everyone who works there is friendly.
It was my first time seeing Ruchi and she was amazing! I went in as a new patient and since I had filled out my paper work prior I didn't have to wait long. When it's ready for your turn to be called Dr. Ruchi comes out herself and calls the patient inside with her which I really liked.
Dr. Aragwal was amazing. I hate going to the gynecologist because most of my doctors have been cold and unwelcoming. That is why I hate getting my annual exam done (I usually cry and get super tense when I go). However, Dr. Argawal made me feel very comfortable as she did my exam and I felt very relaxed. She was also very open to any questions I had and looked into all of my concerns. She is a very great doctor and I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Very attentive and personable. I highly recommend Dr. Agarwal.
Staff was great and super sweet and the Dr. Agarwal was great as well!!
I love the good reception by the staffs and the doctor was excellent I fell very comfortable and very welcoming
The wait isn't long at all and Dr. Agarwal is very understanding, straightforward, and informative. Really liked her!
Dr. Agarwal is caring, patient and kind. She's an expert and I trust her 100%! Took me years to find someone who can really help me recover from pain.
I choose Dr Agarwal based on the great reviews I've read here. I'm happy to share that I was not disappointed. She is lovely, understanding, professional and sweet. She took the time to talk with me and answer all my questions. Everyone I came in contact with welcomed me with a smile and was helpful. Definitely coming back!!!
I've tried out different OB-GYNS around NYC before finding Dr. Agarwal and I'm sticking to her! She is incredibly knowledgable, as well as kind and professional. I appreciated her calming ability--she's approachable and puts you right at ease. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and presented multiple options patiently. The only constructive comment I would have is the wait-time. I unfortunately don't think I've ever waited less than 20-30 minutes for an appointment; during my most recent visit I was seen 61 minutes late. Definitely plan ahead and build a buffer--she is very much worth the wait.
I adore Dr. Agarwal. She has a wonderful bedside manner and a sense of humor. The staff is professional, courteous and very friendly. They squeezed me in and I waited maybe 20 minutes. She sits and speaks with you in her office before heading into the exam room. I highly recommend her.
Dr Agarwal is extremely friendly and she encourages questions. She's very clear when providing explanations and recommandations. Her staff is also very attentive and friendly.
Probably the best gynecologist I have ever seen. She is thorough, caring, and amazing at listening to her patients. One of the best experiences I have had with any doctor.
I really liked her. Front desk could be little more organized. Over all my experience was good.
She is very attentive and knowledgeable, best doctor I've had in NYC
She's the best gynecologist I've ever had. Her expertise, her bedside manner, and her laughter make me feel confident and secure in any otherwise vulnerable situation.
Dr. Agarwal is the greatest doctor I have ever seen. If I could make her my doctor for every part of my life, I would. I've recommended her to so many people and every time I go back, I'm reminded of how much I love her. Best bed side manner, super relaxed, answers all of your questions. Amazing woman & doctor!
Very good service, was in and out within 45 minutes, and added a vaccination for my check up. Would highly recommend
Dr. Agarwal was great! Very thorough, kind and professional. Will definitely be going back to her and recommend her highly. Staff was also super nice and efficient! Refreshing change from previous experiences with medical offices in NYC.
Dr. Agarwal and her staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Dr. Agarwal was gentle and answered all of my questions, she also explained each procedure to me before proceeding. I did not feel rushed at all, although she was very quick with the physical exam which was appreciated! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Agarwal has a really good bedside manner and brings you into her office to discuss any issues and just to get any updates from you before beginning any procedures, which I think is very nice.
Dr. Agarwal is really kind and patient. I've been with her for two years and I will continue to come back
She is an excellent Doctor, understand all your needs and always on top of your appointment and recommend what is best for you and your health.
the md and staff very friendly and service is fast
Dr. Agarwal took her time to listen to my concerns and asked questions about my history. Very polite and made me feel very comfortable! I will be coming back.
The visit was welcoming answered all my questions with patience and understanding.
Dr. Agarwal was very professional and sweet. She talked me through every step of the procedure and made sure to answer all my questions. I had to wait a little longer than expected though (my appointment was at 12pm but I didn't get called until 12:40pm), but other than that, I had a great experience. 5 stars for Dr. Agarwal!
She is really personable and great and I highly recommend!!
Very sweet woman
She is very caring ,gentle and straight to the point . I love that she doesn't mail anything ,all done on a Portal and you just need to log in and get testing results. If an urgent matter occurs, she will call you immediately. Great doctor
Hands down the best medical experience I've had in NYC. Dr. Agarwal was super friendly, understanding, took the time to discuss everything, and made me feel comfortable the whole time. Could not recommend her more!
Overall she's excellent, I would highly recommend Dr. Argawal!
Dr. Agarwal was extremely courteous and caring. It was my first time at the office. I (unfortunately) ended up being 20 minutes late for my appointment. She reviewed my medical file and asked all of the essential questions without rushing me. She was very thorough and actually recommended things that my former OBGYN never did. She was so patient and put me at ease throughout the appointment. Her medical assistant that took my blood was also extremely sweet and comforting. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Agarwal.
I had to wait over an hour to see the doctor with people coming in after me going in to see her first. The doctor was way to matter of fact, and rather rough during the exam. It felt all to clinical and as if i was a burden rather then a patient. For someone who doesn't like getting blood drawn this also could not have been a worse experience. the first girl who tried to draw blood poked me and after it not working, she left to have another woman come in who was so aggressive, the area where she drew blood really hurt for the next several hours. I will never, ever be going to this doctor or location again.
The doctor seemed very approachable and easy to talk to. She made me feel at ease and more comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation. She also seems very knowledgeable about her stuff. I would definitely see her again.
Reassuring, thoughtful and through. She explained the reasoning behind several procedures. Her manner was kind.
Dr. Agarwal was very pleasant. Had very good bedside manner. She met with me before the exam to discuss any concerns I had. She even personally called me afterwards to follow up. Highly recommend!
I think Dr. Agarwal is fantastic. She is very nice and knowledgable, and she seems to be a kind and thorough doctor. HOWEVER, she is treated as a specialist and I was slapped with a specialist co-pay when I arrived. I made an appt for a standard annual well woman exam (which are normally fully covered by insurance) so I was shocked and disappointed to find that she was a specialist only when I arrived. It would've been nice to know ahead of time. Since she is listed as a gyno, I would never assume she was a specialist so for anyone else in a similar situation, please keep that in mind before booking an appointment here!
Dr Agarwal is great. Her receptionist could be improved in the Manhattan office. Her receptionist in the Bronx is great.
Awesome as always. Dr. Ruchi is always very informative and it is so comfortable to talk with her. Definitely trust her opinion and am always happy I ask questions.
She and her staff and very professional, helpful and nice!
General impressions - office is a bit dingy/outdated and cramped, but to be expected in NYC. Receptionist wasn't the most unfriendly or friendly, pretty neutral demeanor which is a step up from the places I've been to. Doctor Agarwal was very efficient, confident in her advice, fast and reassuring. I felt very comfortable with her and the nurse practitioner in training (who was the most friendly of them all). Downside - I personally have had to get blood drawn multiple times a year for over a decade. I have an aversion to blood and having it drawn in my arm (I faint/feel nauseous). I have specific requests to prevent this from happening which is to lay down and have blood drawn from my hand. For me, it's painless and I feel fine afterward. The nurse or staff member who took blood in this office, did not believe me and scoffed at me when I asked for this pretty normal request (Dr. Agarwal even confirmed it would be fine). She almost refused to draw blood from my hand and then with a disrespectful tone said "it's your hand, not mine" and proceeded to complain about how long the blood took to draw. There is a strong chance I will not be back due to this extremely unprofessional behavior from this staff member.
she was to the point and explained everything
Dr. Agarwal is very pleasant, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and well cared for. Her stafff was excellent, as well.
Dr. Agarwal was recommended to me by a friend. She exceeded my expectations. My insurance changed and I'm happy that She's my doctor!
The doctor is wonderful but the receptionist are sarcastic and rude. I considered changing my GYN doctor but I like her so much so I’m kind of force to deal with the rudeness.
I've been living in the city for nearly 7 years now and was so reluctant -- and truthfully, a little nervous -- to look for an OB/GYN here. A girlfriend highly recommended Dr. Agarwal and it's easy to see why. Dr. Agarwal was very attentive and answered my long list of questions and concerns. It's clear that she leads by example, because her office staff is just as exceptional as she is. Upon leaving my first appointment, I recommended her to another close friend of mine. I really cannot convey how relieved I am to have found her.
As usual I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Argawal. She is a genuine caring doctor.
She's very sweet and humble. You can truly see her compassion and interest in her patients.
Dr. Agarwal was great - very good bedside manner, and actually took me into her office to speak with me before the actual appointment. The office is a bit shabby looking - but care was great.
She is so great! She cares, she makes you feel comfortable and explains everything in great detail!
She is absolutely wonderful.
This was the least painful Pap smear I've ever had. Dr Agarwal made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. She's very approachable and from what I saw she has a great relationship with her patients.
She was amazing! So understanding and thorough. I had to get my blood taken and was afraid I'd faint, but she made me feel very comfortable.
She's the best
I was very comfortable with her, I didn't get nervous like I always do. She is very professional & nice, she explains what she is going to do. It was my first time going to her, I went to her because I read the reviews. I always like to do my research. I will definitely keep her as my gynecologist.
I did not feel that this office felt welcoming nor was the doctor. The office is outdated and did not feel like a place I wanted to come back to. During my first visit I felt like the doctor was judgmental when I was in my first consultation. I often felt I was criticized by the staff rather than cared for.
DR AGARWAL IS VERY QUICK AND professional very sweet and understanding she's very comforting
She made me feel very comfortable and explained everything clearly
Dr Agarwal is professional, attentive and an all-round extremely knowledgeable doctor. No complaints here.
Dr. Agarwal was very friendly and thorough. We met in her office and spoke about my symptoms, history, etc. before the exam which I liked. The exam rooms felt a little dingy to me, which I didn't like. I couldn't tell if they were just old or not really clean...the receptionist was nice but I felt there was an attitude from some of the other staff which made me feel uncomfortable. Just general unfriendliness for no reason. Following could have been easier but overall it was a good experience.
Dr Ruchi Argawal is always considerate, thorough, and inspires great trust. Her staff is also very friendly and professional. I never dread going to the doctor like I used to!
Dr. Agarwal has a terrible bedside manner. She talks down to her patients and calls them "Hun" and does not make them feel welcome. I would not recommend.
She was friendly, approachable, answered all my questions. Very good experience.
Always an excellent visit the staff and facilities are amazing! The doctor always personable and knowledgeable!
Dr. Agarwal was professional, courteous, and I felt immediately I was in good hands. My previous GYN had retired and I was anxious to find a replacement. I highly recommend Dr. Agarwal and feel confident that she will be there for any issues moving forward.
I love Dr. Agarwal, She is very thorough and has a positive happy disposition. Definitely recommend her.
The office was able to accomodate me even though I was running late. Dr. Agarwal was kind and professional. She presented options and information to me in a way that guided me towards a best course while still respecting my choices and opinions. I would highly recommend her services.
She was awesome! Explained everything. Short wait time. Courteous staff. Couldn't ask for more
Always a great visit! Excellent staff very professional and punctual!
shes really careful, easy to talk to and attentive
The appointment was fine, I had to wait about twenty minutes to be seen. However, since the appointment I have had a really hard time being reimbursed for overpayment. I have called about 5 times, most times being directed to call back later or another day or just getting voicemail with the mailbox full. One time I actually got connected to someone after calling my insurance company to complain and the insurance company calling them with me on the line... She assured me that I would receive a check within a week. Surprise! No check. I have been calling since with NO success. I would not return or recommend this practice.
I found the office to be fairly unprofessional. Long wait time and I have been unable to reach anyone in the office to find out test results for the past month.
She was great! Made me feel at ease.. I look forward to becoming a regular patient with her.
Dr. Agarwal was very helpful and detailed. She answered all my questions and gave me good detailed information that I understood.
Dr. Argawal is very sweet, and professional. The staff overall are very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend her I had to switch my gynecologist due to not having a doctor who understood my needs. I am very satisfied and happy I was able to find her.
this is a great doctor
I really like seeing her! She's super professional but also makes you feel like you're a friend. Highly recommended.
I got an IUD removed and replaced- and with her it was the quickest and most painless process. The entire office really cares about each patient.
Dr. Agarwal always inspires the utmost respect and trust with her knowledge and genuine concern. I have seen her for two years now for my annual exams and she is always very thorough and extremely patient.
I had to wait because she was going away for two weeks and I think overbooked to get patients in. But she was very thorough and knowledgeable.
I'm so thrilled to have found Dr. Agarwal. I felt respected and heard, and the exam went fast (I went on my lunch break!) but never felt rushed. She made it a point to take the time to hear and answer my questions.
It was for my daughter for birth control and she called me into her office and gave her a couple of options to work out in private with me!! Very kind and professional
I had a horrible relationship with my previous GYNO, so meeting Dr. Agarwal was a drem come true! Lovely bedisde manner and puts you right at ease as soon as you sit down in her office.
Dr Ruchi Agarwal is an excellent Doctor. My visit was very satisfactory. She patiently listened to all my concerns and did a through check up for me. There was a bit of a wait time but was totally worth it. Would highly recommend her
Dr. Agarwal was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. She was efficient, while still taking time to answer all my questions. She made me feel comfortable during an exam that is inherently awkward/uncomfortable. I would definitely recommend.
Super friendly, proffesional and informative!! Will definitely go back. Thank you.
This doctor is amazing. She is honest and answers all questions. The visits are quick and you are seen at the time of your appointment. Whenever I leave her office I am 100% content. The staff there are also very professional and helpful. When blood is being taken it doesn't hurt (pain free). I am 1000% satisfied with this doctor. Very clean environment. I highly recommend this doctor.
She was excellent. Very professional, whilst also warm and friendly. Extremely knowledgable.
She is very professional and take cake the patients fast.
I decided to switch my gynecologist after I was extremely dissatisfied with the bedside manner of a particular doctor at Beth Israel (who suggested I get a new boyfriend instead of addressing my personal issues). I've been meaning to switch, and did my research well. Dr. Agarwal was extremely thorough, personable, and she even told me information I had not known in the 10 years I've been going to a gynecologist. She was patient and did not rush me, and I truly feel confident about her expertise. She even takes the time to talk about risks associated with birth control use...aka the small print that doctors let you to read on your own and you never do. I was very comfortable with her and I highly recommend her.
She was funny and comforting. The best OBGYN I've had so far.
Dr Agarwal is fantastic, very kind and friendly. Makes you feel very at ease.
She was friendly & very kind hearted person. She listened to me and given the right treatments and provide details.
I think Dr. Agarwal is delightful. She has a sense of humor and a great bedside manner. I feel comfortable and well cared for.
Visit went really well, all of the staff was extremely nice. Overall I felt good leaving the appointment
Dr. Agarwal really cares about each individual patient. She takes time to get to know concerns you face. I would recommend her to my family and friends.
I like her calm demeanor and the fact that she takes the time to explain anything I ask about. Her staff is pleasant, especially the nurse who took my vitals on my first visit. I wish I could remember her name, but I could tell she genuinely cared about the well-being of her patients. Wait time is pretty short, even though I was a little late one time. Overall high quality treatment when in Dr. Agarwal's care.
Such a welcoming kind woman. Made me feel very comfortable and was very knowledgable. Would definitely recommend
Dr. Agarwal is very professional and her staff is always willing to help you in everything you need either personal or by phone.
Just the greatest.
Loved her! Made me feel so comfortable and was east to talk to. Definitely recommend!
Best OBGYN yet. Compassionate, on point, responsive, great listener. Exactly what you want in a doctor.
She was very kind and made sure I understood everything. I was a bit nervous seeing someone new but she made it a wonderful experience.
Dr. Agarwal made me feel comfortable right away. I could easily talk to her about any of my concerns or questions.
Very informative , very attentive , very professional .
My visit with DrAgarwal was phenomenal . This was my first time visiting with her and was impressed by how warm she was ,how friendly the staff was , and how clean the facilities were . I'd would hands down recommend her to friends and family !
I was disappointed by the wait time in addition I've never received my medical results!
Loved her beside manner, she was really amiable and made me feel really comfortable. The wait could have been shorter, it took about 30 minutes before I was seen but I was glad that Dr. Ruchi saw my note in my ZocDoc appointment that I was here on lunch break. She was very understanding about that and made sure to see me sooner which I appreciated a lot. It was very quick since I was in just for my annual check up so I look forward to seeing her again next year! She was really personable and encouraged questions if I had any.
Dr. Agarwal is great! She answered all of my questions and was very helpful.
I really appreciate Dr Agarwal. She genuinely cares about you. She's super attentive, well-educated and makes me as ease. Thank you for always taking care of me!
She was amazing! If you are looking for a new OBGYN-look no further. Dr. Agarwal make you feel incredibly at ease and I honestly cannot say enough nice things!!
Dr Agarwal seems fairly responsive and thorough. She's a bit condescending in her bedside manner, which did put me off a bit, but overall was a reasonably thorough dr. I will say, however, that one of the main reasons I discontinued coming here was the front office staff. I don't know names truthfully, and I do understand they have tough jobs, but you're also the first face of the dr. A little kindness and less flippancy and , occasionally, downright rude attitude goes a long way.
I thought Dr. Agarwal was great, but her office and accounting staff made the experience very difficult and I will probably not return. I was charged a co-pay when there should not have been one and was unable to get a refund for a month. In addition, the office was a bit run down and the staff was not very helpful in person or over the phone.
Dr. Agarwal is super friendly and easy to talk to.
Dr. Ruchi is amazing!
Dr. Agarwal was very professional and helpful. Her staff were not. They tried to overcharge me the copay. I waited for around 45 minutes to be seen. I was also stuck with a bill afterwards for lab work that was not considered preventative by my insurance though Dr Agarwal is considered in-network. I was not made aware that anything being done was out of the ordinary. When I called to try and resolve the billing situation, the woman at the desk kept calling me "Hon" which is very irritating as an adult woman. Not only were they not helpful, the woman just kept telling me that she couldn't do anything. Overall a terrible experience and I won't be back.
the kindest, most attentive, greatest Dr. in the biz! Have been going to her for 2 years!
Dr Agarwal was great, but her staff were a little less than brilliant.
I love Dr. Agarwal, Yes she's a great Doctor, but she also is very easy to talk to!
Dr Agarwal herself was very helpful. My interactions with some of the nurses however have made me somewhat uncomfortable. I actually had an instance of one nurse taking a personal phone call while I was on the table waiting for a pap... not even sure how to describe how bizarre and unprofessional this was. I had an IUD placed, and apparently the office failed to submit the claim to my insurance within the required period of time. These glaring signs of incompetency with her staff really need to be addressed, and I cannot go back there again.
Once again I was given the run around about this vaccine that I'm trying to get. I will not be going back.
Dr Ruchi Agarwal made me feel very comfortable in speaking with her and she answered all my questions in a very professional manner....and the results of tests like pap smear and mammogram were delivered in no time. Thanks Dr Ruchi. ..will definitely recommend you to my colleagues and friends.
Dr. Agartala is very thorough.
She is great! easy to schedule appointments.
I loved it and her!
Dr. Agarwal was personable, professional, kind and personable. Very easy to talk to! Appointment was pleasant.
I have endometriosis and she's the only doctor that actually listens to me, shows sympathy, explains all the options, and offers a practical plan of action. She's the only doctor that I've had with a real sense of compassion. I highly recommend her.
I went to Dr. Ruchi to examine some painful breast cysts, and she agreed to get them examined and I was sent to get ultrasounds. After a couple of weeks of the ultrasound and getting a results summary from the ultrasound people over the mail, I call Dr. Agarwal to discuss them and she was on vacation that week, so I left a message with the office manager for her to please call me back as soon as possible. She never called me back. I had been to her office before hoping to make her my doctor, and although the first visit went smoothly, I won't be coming back because of how they carelessly managed my situation.
I left extremely satisfied with the service of Dr. Agarwal and her staff.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Agarwal. She was very helpful and made me seem like a priority! The office was easy to get to and I didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes.
Dr. Agarwal is amazing. I have been going to her for almost 2 years. She and her staff have been incredibly helpful and kind. I love this office!!
Amazing Doctor. She gave me more information than any other doctors has and she actually listen to my concerns and doing testing needed to get answer.
Dr Agarwal spent time to get to know me as a new patient before I went for the annual check-up which made me feel comfortable. Will definitely refer Dr Ruchi to my friends and colleagues Thank you!
Dr. Agarwal was very pleasant and easy to speak to. My only complaint is her front desk staff, which have ignored me while holding a personal conversations.
Dr. Ruchi Agarwal is absolutely amazing and very knowledgeable!
I am so happy with Dr. Agarwal, she is extremely knowledgeable and tells you what you need to know. I came in with a fibroid problem and was feeling scared and she calmed my nerves and made me feel that I was finally in good hands. Very highly recommended.
Excellent as always!
I arrived early and left by the time I was supposed to be seen. Dr. Agarwal is professional, knowledgeable, and so friendly and easy to talk to. She made me feel comfortable after being nervous for my appointment and I highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Agarwal gave me some great information. She was friendly and reassuring. One of the best doctors I have ever seen!
Would not recommend this doctor. Went twice and felt both times she was quite judgmental and dismissive, blaming all of my physical health concerns on stress/anxiety and suggesting a therapist. Seemed like she just didn't have an answer for the issues so she used that. They told me test results would be ready in a week but somehow that turned into 2 weeks and by my next appointment they couldn't locate all of them. They also said they don't notify the patient when the results come in if its all negative so I had to continue to call back and ask if they had come. I will say the doctor was pretty helpful once she heard about all the confusion but overall I wouldn't recommend to anyone.
Very professional, very informative, I felt very comfortable as a first-time patient
Very kind and thorough! She really takes great care to find out about your whole well being and to suggest dietary and holistic treatments in addition to medical treatment.
I really appreciated Dr. Agarwal taking her time with me and answering all of my questions. She's very kind and provides great personal attention. I will definitely continue to see her for my annual check-ups.
Straight forward, and understanding. Nice person overall.
Dr Agarwal takes the time to listen to your questions and provides simple, logical, helpful advice without any judgment or influence. Always very clear and friendly and doesn't keep anyone waiting. In and out with a smile.
Great bedside manner, great at following up!!
Really nice and friendly. Will definitely be going back. She deserves all the good reviews, and I'm glad she takes my insurance.
Horrible follow-up procedure. After my appointment with the doctor, I needed to get in contact. I had to call multiple times and leave multiple messages over a span of a week with different receptionists who all promised the doctor will call me back. Receptionists would blame it on prior receptionist saying "oh i did not work yesterday, so i don't know where the note is." Also, tried to blame it on other office location too, meanwhile I called the same office. At 1:30pm in middle of a weekday, I call and no one answers the phone/no voicemail option. I never leave bad reviews, but when it comes to an OB GYN, they are not prescribing a simple medication like advil..so if something is wrong they should be easily accessible. I will be going to a different doctor.
She made me feel so comfortable, and addressed all of my concerns. She was honest about pain, and talked me through the procedure the whole time. The staff was very helpful. I would definitely return.
Dr. Agarwal took time with me. Not only was she knowledgeable -- which many doctors happen to be -- but she was also warm and compassionate. After the appointment is over you will walk out of the office by yourself and you will have to deal with your health issues. But when I left the office, I felt I wasn't alone; I had a partner. With Dr. Agarwal I was not just a patient, I was a person.
Dr. Agarwal is lovely, patient and kind. Highly recommend.
I love Dr. Agarwal!!! She's so attentive and focused on her patients, and she'll answer any and all questions thoroughly and with care. I like that we chat in her office for a few minutes before the actual appointment, it feels warmer and easier to talk to your doctor when you're not sitting on a scratchy sheet with half your clothes off. She really listens and really cares about her patients. As someone who identifies as bisexual, I was nervous about finding a new gyno who would be LGBTQ friendly and understanding--and Dr. Agarwal is JUST that! She's awesome.
My experience with Dr. Agarwal was amazing. I left her office feeling really positive and pleased. She answered all my questions patiently, gave great advice and throughout the whole process she was very friendly and really easy to talk to. I am very happy I found her.
Dr Agarwal seems to be a wholly considerate and constructive person. I felt very comfortable with her. She has a remarkable patience and understanding for the patient's perspective (questions, concerns, fears). And very smart to boot. It wasn't a busy day when I came in, so it may be more for an exception than the rule but reception was helpful and had no intention of making things difficult for anyone. Ideal doctor experience. A+
SHE IS VERY NICE AND PROFESSIONAL
She's direct, kind, extremely knowledgeable, and makes her patients feel 100% comfortable discussing issues that are often difficult. Highly recommend.
She is so sweet! Super comfortable to talk to. There was a bit of a wait but nothing dramatic.
Really nice woman and great, friendly staff.
Dr. Agarwal was very kind. It was my first pap smear and she walked me through it and kept me from being too nervous.The office was small but clean, and everyone was polite and helpful.
Office underground, but in a nice area, has a bit of a dingy feel to it.. Friendly doctor, warm, took time to sit down with me briefly. Physical part very quick, a bit rushed, but all I needed was a smear so I guess that's ok, who wants to linger right! Would recommend her to my friends. Overall good visit.
She made me feel soo comfortable! She was soo nice and gental. Would recommend to others!
Dr. Agarwal was extremely helpful and knowledgable with my concerns. She and the staff are very nice and warm. I look forward to seeing her next year.
She's amazing. Atentive and through. In and out in 45 mins.
One of the best experiences I've had with a gynecologist. Dr. Agarwal asked smart, pointed questions that no other doctor has ever asked me. She asked questions that showed that she had a holistic way of assessing one's lifestyle and health. She also encouraged me to do self breast exams and to log my menstrual cycles and patterns so that I can gain a better understanding of my health. She goes over and beyond what most doctors would do. It was refreshing to see someone who cared and was also knowledgeable in her field. She even encouraged me to use an app to track my menstruation cycle which shows she keeps up with modern tools and technology. She gave me "next steps" guidance at the end of our meeting -- most doctors just leave you hanging or hand out prescriptions like candy. Not her. Highly recommended.
I felt judged and lectured. While the doctor said things in the name of being worried about my health, a friendlier approach would have been more appreciated. The examination was fine though.
Dr. Agarwal was beyond supportive during my visit. If I had enough money I would take her everywhere with me wherever I may end up , just so she can be my doctor.
Dr. Agarwal made me feel comfortable and she took the time to explain things. I tend to faint when having blood drawn and Dr. Agarwal went to great lengths to make sure that did not happen.
Ruchi Agarwal is sooo nice, i love her..i even gave her a hug after i left her office. She is an excellent Doctor
Dr. Agarwal is absolutely phenomenal. She walked me through all my options thoughtfully and spent time answering all of my questions. She was knowledgable and kind and I would be happy to recommend her to any of my friends. So glad to have a great gynecologist!
Dr. Agarwal was very warm and kind. She answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable right away. The wait time was maybe ten minutes, staff was friendly... Overall, the experience was great and I will definitely be returning.
I loved Dr. Agarwal. She was really thorough, eager to answer questions, and I felt really comfortable during my appointment. The only issue was the cleanliness of the office.. it is in the basement of a building and it did not feel like one of the cleaner doctor's offices I've been in. The doctor herself was amazing and despite the office I would go to see her again.
I could just hang out with Dr. Agarwal and talk in her office all day. Very thorough and cool lady. I actually look forward to my appointments!
Maybe I am just sort unlucky with my OBGYN doctors since I started the health first insurance couple of months ago. I booked Doctor Ruchi, because my last OBGYN doctor in ChinaTown let me wait for almost a hour, in the room half clothed, so I decided to find another doctor for the Pap exam. Something wrong with the system, so I did not get to see her the first time, because she was not in the office. Then I went to Portland for a week, and came back to the second appointment, during the time of traveling, I had yeast infection, and it was going away by the time I had my appointment. She asked me to sit in the office, and told me, she can not perform the Pap, because my health insurance sucks, so I need to call my insurance first, and she will also call. So I can not get tested till my insurance proved it. I mentioned that I had yeast infection a week ago, while traveling, but it is sort going away now. She just sort said oh ok. I left her office very quickly and feeling uncomfortable. Should she at least take a look? I am not sure what to do, is it my health insurance that sucks, as most of the doctors I saw are not as easy? Do I need to keep looking for a 3rd OBYGN doctor for something so small and common. Maybe she is a nice doctor, just happened that i have a bad health insurance. I am really confused, and I would really like to know how to make my doctors visits more " normal " .
Dr. Agarwal was professional and great. She made me feel comfortable right away. I was also seen right away. Perhaps it's best book the earliest appointments in the morning for those who don't want to wait too long. I also appreciated that she took me to her office first for a sit down before going straight to the exam. I'll be sure to go to Dr. Agarwal in the future and recommend her to friends.
Dr. Agarwal took the time to truly listen to my concerns. She asked me pertinent questions about my condition and my history, and responded with a breadth of knowledge as well as compassion and warmth. I highly recommend her. You will be cared for not just as a patient, but as a unique person.
she is patient and knowledgeable.
She's great. Excellent bedside manner. Extremely knowledgeable about IUDs which is why I went in. In fact I was so impressed I'm going to schedule a procedure right away!
really really great. so nice and made me feel very comfortable. highly recommend!
OMG! I had no idea there were professionals left like this. I highly recommend this Doctor. An awesome staff and supreme care. I will be a patient for life!
I had an awful experience at Dr. Ruchi Agarwal's office. The receptionist was rude. At one point I asked her a question and she responded rudely. The doctor was rude too. She had a student in the room and she did not explain why she was there. When I asked her, she rudely explained. I asked her for my prescription and she said that it was sent to a pharmacy and when I went the prescription was not there. I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone.
One of the best doctors I have met in NYC. Dr. Agarwal is so friendly, smart, and patient. She cares about her patience. I like that she gives advice on lifestyle changes rather than immediately prescribing medicine for common issues I have faced. Would highly recommend!
First time here. Was a decent visit as doctor gave me what I needed. She also suggested that I get a pap smear which I really don't want to get. But maybe will in the future. Dr. Agarwal was nice overall.
Dr. Argawal is very sweet, personable, and professional. She always makes me feel comfortable during visits. Front desk staff is also very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Agarwal was very pleasant, patient, knowledgeable, and professional. She made me feel welcomed and at ease the moment I sat down to talk to her. I will definitely be going back. And I will be recommending my friends and colleagues as well. Hopefully, I won't overwhelm her :)
Dr. Argawal is extremely friendly and instantly made me feel comfortable. She is very easily to speak to. Will definitely recommend her!
Dr. Agarwal is super knowledgeable and has a very friendly yet professional manner. It's also very easy to get a hold of her over the phone to discuss lab results etc. I have been a patient of hers for several years and can't say enough good things!
Dr. Agarwal is patient, friendly, knowledgeable, transparent, and thorough in explanations and examinations. I've had two appointments with her so far and found the wait time has usually fallen between 30-45 minutes. However, after searching for the right OB-GYN across the city, she's the one! She is well-worth the wait and I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone wonderful and well-versed in her field.
Dr. Agarwal is warm, but very professional and informative. I'm happy I found her.
I haven't been to an OBGYN in a LONG time and she put me right at ease. I felt very comfortable and she was able to answer all my questions and concerns.
Love Dr. Agarwal, she's very flexible, knowledgeable, and honest. She'll tell you what you need to hear without giving you a list of horror stories. I've recommended her to other friends as well.
She's an amazing doctor! I felt super comfortable and she was just very personable and down to earth. It was a very pleasant visit overall
This is my second time visiting Dr. Agarwal, and while the wait was a bit long for both visits (close to 30 minutes), she was nothing but kind, informative and professional. She is my favorite ob/gyn I found in the city so far and I highly recommend her.
Very friendly doctor, made me feel very comfortable.
She is very welcoming and makes you feel comfortable. She asks you if you have any questions. She takes the time to listen, and she gives advice on what is best for the patient. She also gives you a heads up if there may be issues with your insurance company so you can make the final decision. I would definitely recommend this doctor to my friends and family!
Amazing doctor, highly recommended
Dr. Agarwal was great! This was my first time visiting her and she made me feel extremely comfortable during my visit. She sat down with me to get to know me and my needs, which I felt was very professional. There was no wait, the check up was quick and efficient and I was in and out of there in 30 minutes.
The fastest appt ever!! Loved everything about the visit, quick and easy!
Dr. Agarwal and her office staff were great and made me feel very comfortable. The doctor was very personable and knowledgeable and I felt I was in good hands.
She was so incredibly sweet. I highly recommend.
Dr. Agarwal is always very thorough and attentive.
Dr. Agarwal seems like a committed professional, whose super likable, because she listened to my concerns and gave me very direct answers about my health. She also suggested ways in which I can take a more active role in my own health through collecting information with an app which was empowering or at least useful in terms of collecting the information she would need to get me the answers I would want. She's also been committed to the Bronx for over a decade and I really dig people who are rooted in community. For all these reasons, go see her.
Dr. Agarwal has always been very attentive and caring with her patients. No nonsense in the best way, super down-to-earth, and a laid back energy means easy appointments. Highly recommend.
Dr. Agarwal is fantastic! I just saw her again today for a follow up to go over the results of my bloodwork, etc from my first appointment. She listened to my concerns, she created a template for my future health (I have been suffering from complications of PCOS) and I felt that she was genuine in her care and concern. Her staff is super friendly, for both appointments I waited less than 10 minutes to be seen. Excellent choice! I hope she is my gynecologist for life.
Caring, thorough, quick. Highly recommended.
This was quite a quick and efficient examination. Dr. Ruchi was professional, pleasant to speak to and she treated me with care. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Ruchi and her staff are pretty amazing and kind. I mentioned a brief prior history of having experienced abuse in the past and Dr. Ruchi was very passionate about making sure I was okay and offered several amazing resources for me to look into (even though this was not the reason I visited). I got the sense she and her staff are true gems of their profession, where they actually care about their patients and are invested in our whole health. Dr. Ruchi has set a higher standard for me in terms of doctors in the past who rushed to diagnose me/prescribe me meds/get me out of their office as fast as possible.
Amazing she explained everything perfectly in her office she was very kind and made me feel comfortable through the whole appointment. Only waited about 10 mins to see her.
She's wonderful. She sits with you at your first appointment and really listens to what you need. Excellent bedside manner for anyone looking for a trusted doctor.
I love Dr. Agarwal, but she is forgetful. She was supposed to leave me a prescription before she left for vacation and forgot to // didn't leave a note for the front desk to even let them know she was unable to provide my needed prescription.
Absolutely wonderful, very humane, very kind and caring.
Dr Agarwal is very caring and thorough. She listened to me very patiently. I would highly recommend her.
Very pleasant experience! Everyone was calm and friendly and Dr. Agarwal was personable and appropriately casual and understanding.
Dr Agarwal is really nice and really professional. She takes the time to explain procedures, tests and possible scenarios based on thorough examination. She seems genuinely concerned with the well being of her patients. The nurse and the receptionist are equally nice. And the longest I had to wait was 10 minutes before seeing Dr Agarwal.
She was quick, thorough and efficient. Thank you.
She was very informative and helpful. Even though she could not service my needs she took the time to order tests that I needed and give me some guidance.
I've been coming to se Dr. Agarwal for a couple of years (after some not so great experiences elsewhere). She's quick, she's non-judgemental, and she's always very nice and friendly. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Agarwal was great. Made me feel comfortable right from the start, got to know me on a personal level and took the time to make sure all my questions were answered. No complaints!
I love Dr. Agarwal's demeanor. She is very personable and attentive. I feel she always has my best interest in mind
appreciated dr.agarwal's professionalism and manner, and she'll be my new permanent obgyn
Dr. Agarwal was fantastic. I was in and out in less than an hour for an annual checkup with blood testing--that never happens! She instantly put me at ease, and she was smart, direct and personable. She had thorough answers for all of my questions and never made me feel uncomfortable for asking them. The office ran smoothy and quickly and it was very clean and comfortable--she even had a bathroom adjoining her office for me to change into the hospital gown (for my checkup.) The office called in my birth control prescription the same day then called me to let me know they had. The nurse who took my blood for testing was friendly and skillful. The people at the registration desk were attentive and friendly. Highly highly recommend.
Dr. Agarwal is a fantastic OB-GYN who is super nice and knowledgeable. The appointment took less than an hour, the examination rooms are clean, and I never felt uncomfortable. Definitely recommend!
She was quick and efficient, straight forward with her advice. I thought I needed an exam done, but no! I am too young, instead she treated me properly and gave me advice on contraceptives. She is genuine.
I really like her a lot! She makes me feel very comfortable and spends a lot of time with me so I feel she is really giving me a lot of attention and care. Definitely recommend!
Dr. Agarwal was amazing and very knowledgeable about my situation.
My gyno visit was fantastic and efficient. Dr. Agarwal was gentle and patient, and the staff was great. I will definitely be going back to this office and doc.
Dr. Agarwal is amazing!! She listened to my concerns and gave wonderful advise according to my needs. She is professional and informative. I would recommend her to everyone!
She was kind, remembered me after one visit, and professional.
My Visit was amazing. I've been looking for a GYN for some time now; since my favorite Doctor moved to LA. After being my GYN for over 5 year. The staff was professional. I love that I made my appointment with Zoc Doc. Word of advice fill out all your information on Zoc Doc so that once you get there you don't have to sit and fill out paper work. The Doctor was so pleasant.
Has been very helpful and honest in advising me in my search for the right birth control. Recommend.
Dr. Agarwal is awesome! I always know exactly what she's doing, and why. Also, she's great about really understanding your specific circumstances, and working for the best solution for you. Wait time wasn't great, and some of her staff are better than others, though.
I wasn't satify with this doctor didn't feel like I was being heard or understood.
She was wonderful she made me feel very comfortable and at ease I will definitely recommend her to my friends
Very knowledgeable and caring.
It was a really pleasant experience! She was very professional. She spoke to me in her office prior to the exam, which I loved. I have been living in NYC for 20 years and I have never seen the inside of a doctor's office. I highly recommend her.
She was very friendly and pleasant. I look forward to seeing her again.
I love going to see Dr. Agarwal! Went in for my annual pap and it was quick and painless. She remembers each patient and genuinely cares for each one individually. Only thing is the wait time is sometimes longer than 15-20 mins.
She was so nice and understandable!!
I'm happy to say that I found my new OBGYN after some searching. The staff was very friendly. Dr. Agarwal was warm, funny, knowledgeable, caring, and patient. She listened and presented all options -- I felt very empowered to choose and was comfortable in asking all of my questions. She's wonderful and I highly recommend her office to anyone!
Dr. Agarwal was fantastic! Quick efficient and very pleasant all around. The physical exam was quick and painless. Most comfortable Pap smear I have ever had. I highly recommend this doctor!
My experience with Dr. Agarwal was average. She tended to my yearly check in and her bedside manner was appropriate. However, I would not recommend this office to anyone for the sole reason of how the front desk interacted with me after the appointment. Months after, I received a bill from a company with no address, no information and when I called this company a woman answered who could barely speak english but said that the bill was from Dr. Agarwal. The front desk billed my insurance and me separately 3 different times and for the first 2-3 weeks of attempting to get in touch with this doctor no one responded and the bills continued to come. After much hassle going back and forth with the office they found that they actually had made the mistake and it was resolved - note: it took 4 months.
Very nice and comfortable to talk to.
It took me a while to write this, but I just want everyone to know that I had an awful experience with this doctor! She spoke to me in such a rude, condescending way. I was so shocked! She should really be ashamed to call herself a doctor. The only reason that I didn't return fire was because I felt horrible due to the excessive bleeding that I was experiencing due to my fibroids. After reading the other reviews, I am left wondering did they go to the same doctor that I went to??? I guess she will only know why she was so mean, rude, and nasty to me. She won't ever get the chance to do it again...because I wouldn't care if she was the last OB/GYN on earth, I would NEVER return to her ever again! Beware ZocDoc users
Dr. Agarwal is awesome. Friendly, non-judgemental and completely well-versed in her field. I highly recommend her, she is a sweetheart who makes you feel totally comfortable.
She was very nice and answered all my questions! I wish she could be my regulator doctor.
Welcoming, personable and to the point. Very happy to make another appointment. She was very helpful in explaining my options as my health insurance isn't optimal.
The staff and nurse were very friendly. Dr Agarwal was fantastic, she was very informative, she has great bedside manners. I have never felt so comfortable at a GYN exam.
I feel very comfortable with Dr. Agarwal. She is kind and nonjudgemental. She identified and is helping me to treat an issue that could save my life someday. thanks Dr. Agarwal!
Great as always! Very efficient and informative.
Dr. Agarwal was very knowledgeable, warm, and efficient. She went through my family history and personal concerns. She answered all of my questions and gave useful advice. I definitely recommend her.
Had a great experience with Dr. Agarwal. She is well-informed and friendly. I did not feel intimidated by her at all which was not the case with my last OB/GYN. I felt comfortable asking her any questions I had and she really made the whole experience professional and relaxed. The office is a little dated as other reviews mention so it is a slight initial turn-off but Dr. Agarwal is an intelligent and professional physician and I would definitely return and recommend.
Dr. Ruchi Agarwal was amazing. My wait time was very short and punctual to my appointment time. Not only were the nurses friendly and comforting, but Dr. Ruchi Agarwal was excellent. She made me feel comfortable and safe. She was informative, accurate, and my visit was overall a success. The office was clean and organized as well. I was also immediately called back when I left a voicemail about my results. I definitely recommend this doctor.
Dr. Agarwal is an excellent doctor! She is very attentive and informative. Her staff were extremely nice and comforting. I've visited the office several times and never had to wait over twenty minutes.
Dr. Agarwal is extremely personable and always answers any questions I have. My appointments have always been on time with no wait.
Very professional and kind. Nice and helpful staff
She is great!!!! Really helpful !!
Everyone in the office is super nice, friendly, and helpful!
Dr. Agarwal was very professional and to-the-point. She covered all of my questions very efficiently and kindly - I felt well taken care of and informed.
I’ve called 6 times to follow up about a reimbursement I should receive to my credit card. I’m told to call back later. Every time I call back they seem totally blind-sighted like they have forgotten about it until I remind them. This last time she told me to call her on Tuesday if I forget. What?! I have job and responsibilities too. I can’t imagine if I told my colleagues that, not to mention our customers! There billing person comes in on Saturday. Why do I have to wait until Tuesday to get this resolved? I’m not over the moon about the bedside manner of the Ruchi either. She’s nice enough, but when I try to bring up issues I’m having, she says that’s normal. I’m not looking to be diagnosed with anything, but shouldn’t someone ask questions before they provide diagnosis? IDK… Seen her twice and am going to look for a new OBGYN… is there anyone in NY that spends more than 5 minutes with a patient?!
Dr. Agarwal is great. I went in for my yearly pap and she spoke with me about my overall health and any concerns I had prior to the regular appointment. She has great bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable. Plus, I was in and out of there in less than 45 minutes.
I've had over 10 doctors and specialists throughout my entire life and Dr. Agarwal is by far the best. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
What a cool, sophisticated, fully knowledgeable, and capable doctor. I've actually struggled to find an OBGYN in NYC who is as available- both professionally and personally- as Dr. Agarwal proved herself to be today. I was in and out of her office within less than an hour, too. I recommend her highly and feel super happy to have a go-to OBGYN from hereon out :)
Dr. Agarwal and her staff always make me feel comfortable.
Fast, knowledgable, I'm happy with my experience. I work in the healthcare field I felt the office is a little outdated BUT I'm not there for the looks of the office. I'm there to be seen and Dr. Angarwal did just that. Saw me in a timely manner, everything went perfect. I'm extremely happy with my services from the moment I walked it to when I walked out.
Dr. Argawal was friendly. Although certain procedures are bound to hurt a little, she tried her best to be gentle, and apologized when I felt some pain. She also gave me good advice about dealing with my insurance provider. The office staff was polite and professional.
The office isn't fancy and she definitely overbooks, but she's very efficient without being brusque. I love Dr. Agarwal!
So happy..have a followup next week for more test but from first encounter today i have already decided that this is my forever doctor. She is so warm and friendly and made a typically uncomfortable thing so nice and easy
Clinic was not very clean. For a place where such examinations and tests are taking place I would expect the area to be very clean, it was not.
I did have to wait a bit, but once I saw Dr. Agarwal I was in and out of there quickly (without feeling rushed). She provided me with some great info about a new medication I was thinking about and made me feel at ease.
seemed very knowledgable, personable and patient. did wait over an hour however and she seemed a little rushed because she was behind schedule.
She is very sweet Dr. and friendly, always with a beautiful smile. I see she really care for the patients.
I had to wait 45 minutes after my appointment time, which I think is ridiculous that Zocdoc regards as "3 stars." Not only did I have to wait that long despite arriving early, they ended up not calling in my prescription like they said they would - so I ended up waiting again at a pharmacy without even getting my prescription filled. The doctor was very rushed. I'm sure she'd be fine under normal circumstances, but it was a very bad experience overall and I doubt I'll be back.
Very professional, but relaxed. I have found that a lot of female Gynocologists come off as a little bit judgmental or just speak down to you a bit, but she was not like that at all. I felt very comfortable right from the start. Will definitely be making her my regular doctor.
Dr. Agarwal was extremely delightful. Before we went into the exam room, we were able to talk in her office. She asked me a few routine questions and gave me the opportunity to ask any questions and bring up any concerns of my own. In the exam room she explained what she was doing, which is something that not enough doctors do. This was probably my most positive experience with a gynecologist ever. It did not feel rushed and I felt like she genuinely likes to get to know her patients. Overall a great experience.
She was awesome! Very chill and very good at explaining everything. I wish I had gone to her before now!
New to the city and searching for a new doctor, I checked out the Manhattan facilities here, and they were not nice. In fact, I was surprised to encounter a waiting room with dusty, fake flowers and peeling wallpaper, stuffed in the building's basement. I waited at least thirty minutes (with limited cell reception and no wifi) before being seen by Dr Agarwal. The doctor was easy enough to talk to and efficient in treatment, but I wish they'd renovate the space.
Dr. Agarwal is an extremely knowledgable, professional practitioner. She speaks directly and calmly and her bedside manner is comforting and she puts you at ease. She takes the time to speak with you individually to understand your unique concerns and situation. I've found my new OBGYN!
She's great !!!
Dr. Agarwal was fantastic. She listened unjudgementally and provided quick, clear, and understanding advice, feedback, and encouragement.
I was new to the whole system, and this was my first visit to a doctor in the USA. She was incredibly understanding with my questions and helped put my fears at ease.
She really took her time to explain answers to my questions, seems like she really cares about the patient. As wonderful of an experience a visit to the gyno can be.
I thought Dr. Agarwal was delightful. She was honest about my needs and how we could move forward. she didn't seem stressed. I adore her and am happy to have found her. So thanksful she takes my very difficult insurance.
Staff and Doctor were very professional, friendly and helpful in answering questions. The doctor engaged in conversation as she was making inquiries of my medical history.
Very warm and welcoming. She was open to answering any questions I had. I had to wait a little before I was seen, but it didn't feel that long. Definitely found a new doctor!
My visit was short and sweet! Dr. Ruchi was very pleasant, warm and informative. My only issue was the facility, it seemed kinda dingy and old. Other than that, i have no complaints.
She is very caring and no matter what you are going thru she makes you feel comfortable and cared about.
Dr. Agarwal was very nice, knowledgeable, and friendly!
She's awesome!!! Great doctor!!!
Dr. Agarwal was fantastic. All of the staff were wonderful and so nice. I was seen immediately and had no wait time. I highly recommend her.
Excellent! I got in right away & Dr. Argawal was extremely nice and professional. Pleasant, relaxed experience. Highly recommend.
She is answered all my questions, listens very patiently. Very friendly and comfortable. I found my Ob/Gyn after a very intense search. Staff are friendly and helping.
Great doctor, very thorough and attentive.
Went in for a simple visit and I was in and out within 20 minutes! She is very sweet and helpful
Dr. Agarwal was very sweet and kind, but yet professional. I will be going to her in the future.
I absolutely ADORE Dr. Agarwal. She took such good care of me. I highly recommend her. I'm so thankful to have found such a profoundly wonderful woman doc here in the city. Thank you!!!!!!
Before my exam, Dr. Agarwal brought me into her office for a chat to see what she could do for me on this visit. It was old-school and very nice. I felt very comfortable and like I was in good hands. Highly recommend.
Though I came at a busy hour (lunchtime), the appointment was definitely worth the wait. The staff is extremely kind and attentive, and Dr. Agarwal is one of my favorite doctors for sure. She makes a generally uneasy process for me extremely easygoing and I've already recommended her to my friends
Dr. Agarwal was really straight forward and nice. She did a routine check up and was efficient. What I also loved is that you can get your results online.
I thought that Dr. Agarwai was friendly, thorough and professional and I was very pleased as well as satisfied with my first visit to her.
Dr. Argawal is the best OB/GYN in the five boroughs.
I think Dr. Agarwal is amazing! Personally I am terrified of doctors but she kept me calm the entire time. She demonstrates a genuine interest in her patients and the staff in the Bronx location are very welcoming and friendly. I am definitely coming back!!
First and foremost her staff was very friendly and sweet. She was fun to chat with while I waited. I did not wait long at all. My appointment was for 11:15. I got there at 10:45 and by 11a.m. I was seen. I picked a good time to go. Dr. Agarwal was very sweet herself and very down to earth. She was quick and very thorough. I went for my yearly pap. She was also gentle which is important. She was attentive and listened. She also let you ask as many questions as you wanted and didn't rush you. I would highly recommend her!
Very nice. I had to wait because I ran late to my appointment but that's my fault. The nurses were professional and cordial and the Dr was very nice and understanding.
Very comfortable. Friendly staff. I will for sure make future appointments there
Wonderful! Dr Ruchi has a splendid sense of humor. She made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions.
She was great! Made me feel comfortable throughout visit, very informative and receptive to any questions or concerns I had.
She is amazing! Clear, straightforward and comforting at the same time.
She's thourough and very knowledgable. She took the time to talk about all my issues. Her staff is nice and office is too. Great dr.
Dr. Agarawal was kind and genuine. She gave me really good things to think about and made me feel extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend her.
She is quick to put you at ease, professional, incredibly knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and also very efficient with her time. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
She was wonderful and especially easy to talk to. I appreciate her candidness, and her willingness to help.
All the staff and Dr. Agarwal was very courteous, kind, friendly very polite. I really feel very comfortable. I will definitely recommend it to all my friends. She really do her job with love. I will keep on talking good things about her because her and the staff are amazing. Thank you so much Zoc Doc For have the #1 and best Doctor.
Dr. Agarwal was very friendly, informed, and caring. She has the ability to put patients at ease, even during uncomfortable or awkward procedures. The absolute best doctor I have ever seen in NYC without exaggeration. I would recommend highly recommend seeing her!!!
Dr. Ruchi ROCKS. Plain and simple.
As a first time patient, she was great! She made me feel like I was truly going to be taken care of as a patient and a person...how refreshing!
Excellent bedside manner, made me feel very comfortable straight away. The office and facilities are a bit dated, and the room where the check up was does not look very clean.
When my previous lady doctor retired I tried to find one around my neighborhood. I didn't feel comfortable and getting a visit was months in advance. I checked this doctor out on Zoc Doc and took a risk. I couldn't be happier that I did :)
Great doc and bedside manner
I loved it! Her staff is super kind and attentive! I was there at my appt time being that I had started my check-in online. And I was seeing the nurse 5mins after my arrival. Which was great! The doctor was super sweet and thorough with her examination. Loved it!!
I had a very pleasant visit to Dr. Agarwal's office. She was friendly and answered all of my questions. I was in and out quickly and will definitely be back.
Dr Agarwal is such a great doctor. She is so attentive and really cares about her patients and only wants the best for them. I love going to see her and i highly recommend her.
Dr. Agarwal is kind and considerate. She made my first visit to a gynecologist as painless as possible and patiently answered any questions I had.
I was seen right away, she was knowledgeable and honest in my consultation, and I'll be returning to her in the future!
It's hard to find a good female OBYN in NYC. Dr. Agarwal was very friendly and made me feel super comfortable. She was also thorough and didn't rush through the appointment. I didn't wait long for my appointment either.
Very friendly. Short wait time. Quick appointment.
Quick, efficient but not as personable as I'd expected. I went in there with many worries and would've appreciated a more empathetic, friendly doctor who actually looked through my medical history instead of asking me questions that have already been answered.
Dr. Agarwal is amazing. Any medical situation normally makes me nervous but she is so kind and professional that I immediately forgot about my nerves. She took the time to review my medical history in her office, not in the room, which was very nice, not rushing at all. During the appointment she explained everything throughly but was not condescending in any way how some doctors are if I had questions. At the same time, she's warm and caring,I felt like I was just in to see a friend. One of the best doctors I have ever seen. I came for an annual without any concerns and was in and out in 15 minutes. Her staff is organized and sweet. She will definitely be my new OBGYN from now on.
New to NYC, I'm so glad to have found Dr. Agarwal early on!
She made me feel very comfortable im so pleased with her !
Dr. Agarwal and her nurse were super friendly and made my visit professional, personable, quick and informative. I'm very happy with my visit today. There was a delay in the waiting room but I don't think that is the norm, as it seemed like the Dr and a lot of patients had extreme commute disruptions due to train delays, and Dr. Agarwal was sincerely apologetic for it. The woman who worked at the front desk could have been a bit more helpful but the experience itself was very pleasant, and the doctor and nurse were great.
She made me SO comfortable right off the bat. I'd highly recommend her, especially since this kind of visit can be very uncomfortable already.
Professional, efficient, but didn't rush me...I felt confident and comfortable discussing health options with her.
I really enjoyed the doctor herself - she was pleasant and helpful and sweet. The office however could use some updates, and the wait time was over 40 minutes, which is awful when you're taking off work in the middle of the day.
Dr. Agarwal was very personable and respectful. She had a light touch and I never felt rushed or as if I had unanswered questions. I would recommend her and continue to see her in the future.
I thought she was great. Just enough of a sense of humor to make me feel comfortable and keep things professional.
Dr Seigal is a thorough, kind and an excellent communicator. I'm so glad she is in my network.
The office space wasn't the most modern but my appointment went seamlessly. Dr. Agarwal was maternal and made me feel very comfortable even though it was my first ob gyn exam.
What a great doctor! She is patient, kind, and makes a very intrusive check-up very comfortable. Very recommended!
Muy amable y frofecional la Dr y su equipo de personal medico. Dios le bendiga
Dr Agarwal was nice and never felt rushed. The nurse is really nice and personable. The receptionist was a bit cold. I was standing there and was not even greeted at all. I guess I was suppose what to do.
I like Dr. Agarwal. She has good bedside manner & she gave me very good advice. I will follow not only the directions with her prescription, but the lifestyle changes as well.
She is wonderful!!!
Dr. Agarwal is my regular OB-GYN, but this visit was just a consultation regarding conceiving a child. I can't say how amazing it felt when I walked into her private office (not the waiting room), and she knew all of my medical history facts exactly. She really took the time to look over my charts. She detailed everything I will have to do over the next few months, and she was very honest about what tests might be a breeze and which might be physically uncomfortable. She is really making this process feel not-so-scary, although it may be a long road ahead. So recommended!!
The receptionist was very polite and helpful, check-in was speedy. I waited about 40 minutes to be seen by the doctor. She was incredibly friendly, informative, and made me comfortable right away. I definitely recommend Dr. Agarwal.
Dr. Agarwal was wonderful and she has a lovely bedside manner. She makes you feel comfortable right away, and is quick and efficient in her assessment and examination. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
Exelente Dra, muy agradable y profecional
Dr. Agarwal stayed after her regular office hours to fit me in because I needed an appointment quickly. She was also easily accessible beforehand, so we could go over what tests I needed. She was pleasant, saw me right away when I got in, and told me I could contact her with any further questions. I'm very glad I found her!
Love it, she was so fast with everything and answer all your questions..
Everyone in the office was friendly, I had only seen Dr. Agarwal once before but she remembered my last visit. She's very personable and easy to talk to. I'm squeamish when it comes to getting blood drawn but the nurse was very gentle and kind. Overall not a terrible experience at the gyno!
Quiet office, calm setting, lots of literature. Minimal wait time (such a lovely change from so many of my NYC doctor office experiences!), would highly recommend to friends.
Dr. Agarwal was very nice and made me feel as comfortable as it gets in a situation like this.
She was great! Made me feel comfortable right away and easy to talk to - I'll definitely go back!
Dr Argawal has a very kind and empowering bedside manner, but is also very concise and doesn't waste time. I'll definitely go back for follow-up treatment and would recommend her, though the office could use a little sprucing up.
I was very pleased with Dr. Agarwal. I feel so lucky to have found her.
