My sessions with Dr. Agrawal have helped me come through a period of deep anxiety and emotional confusion. He is warm and engaging with a great sense of humor. He is also really honest about what he thinks. I love hisquestions. They draw me past mental blocks I hadn't known were there until I look back from the other side. I always imagined psychiatrists' offices were cold places but he lets emotions into the room. He has a kind of genius with pain that is hard to describe. I've come to feel less scared of what is inside me.

He was just what I've been looking for.He can handle dual diagnosis.He was professional,and by the book.He confirmed everything I had said.Today was my first visit with Dr Agrawal MD he listened asked all the questions like a professional.Hemade it feel like I've been seeing him for a year,and he has the cleanest and neatest office I've ever seen lol.I feel like if I had a problem I could pick the phone and call him.I haven't had a Dr who gave me 45 min session.Alot of these Dr's today just want to get rich,and get you out of their office.Dr's like that give professionals like Dr Hans Agrawal MD a bad name,and if your paying out of pocket he charges half of what these unprofessional Dr's charge.I would recommend him to closest friends,and family.His crudentals say it all.5 stars for professional MD's like Dr Arawal MD.
