How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Ruchi is an angel, very compassionate, honest and knowledgeable. Very grateful to have her as my OBGYN after years of of having emotionless, cold, unknowledgeable obgyns! I highly recommend her!

How was your experience with the doctor?The appointment was great. The doctor and associates were very professional and kind. The wait was way less than I've had at other offices. My only complaints are 1) zocdoc seemingly sent over my paperwork and then I filled out paperwork and then the associate entered the paperwork into the computer with me. Of course, there are time constraints, but I would rather have just done it in person than do it three times. 2) the paper robes they give you could probably use an upgrade :)

How was your experience with the doctor?Now a days going to a doctor is no longer personal and they are very robotic and you always feel rushed, though she was nice this was no different. I didn't feel like there was even time for me to ask any questions and she just read off whatever was on the general questionnaire. Overall it is what it is and my check up was done.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my first time here and they took excellent care of me. The front desk along with the assistants and the doctor was very helpful and Informative. The doctor answered all of my questions plus she made me comfortable at the time of the visit since this type of visit can be very nerve wrecking. I had such a good experience and I will be returning. I don’t live close to this office but I am willing to travel here just to have the same experience.

How was your experience with the doctor?Highly recommended, Dr Agarwal was lovely, professional, helpful, and took her time - everything I was looking for. Would have liked if the 2 people who saw me before the Doctor had introduced themselves, told me their role and/or the reason we were chatting - as I was unsure if they were the Doctor, an assistant or what. Wait time was refreshingly brief, which I very much appreciated.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Agarwal is a wonderful, top-notch and nourishing doc! Not only has she carefully attended any of my questions and concerns in person, but she’s always been sure to call me back if ever I needed to connect outside the office with medical questions. I really encourage anyone to seek her expertise… I have total confidence in her awesome scale. Thanks so much, Dr. Agarwal!

How was your experience with the doctor?The facilities aren’t attractive (totally clean, just in a basement) but it was the least painful Pap smear of my life and Dr Agarwal was very professional- they have a white noise machine to make the room a bit more serene & have put little slipper covers on the stirrups - Clearly a space that has thought about how to make things more comfortable for the women they treat.

How was your experience with the doctor?I do like this doctor and all of the staff. I have gone here for my annual for two years now. My only issue with this doctor is that both year's payment has not gone smoothly. I got a small bill for my annual last year which required me calling my insurance twice and this year I got a large bill from the lab as if they had not submitted my insurance at all. I don't have time to do work on their accounting problems. Having to fix bills every year makes coming here burdensome.

How was your experience with the doctor?Scheduled an annual pap visit with Dr Agarwal. The wait was close to an hour. Once I finally got to see her, though, she was kind, calm, friendly and spent time with me. Had a little difficulty getting my results online but she was nice enough to call me on the phone to speak about it. The office feels a little outdated, aesthetically but I am more interested in the bedside manner than the 90s posters.

How was your experience with the doctor?My visit was short but didn’t feel rushed. I went for an annual check up. The doctor seemed genuine and caring. The office itself, could use some revamping but overall, glad I found a great new doc! Oh, one thing I didn’t like is my test results were never discussed with me. I randomly checked the patient portal and found my results. Was it because everything seemed fine they didn’t bother to call me?

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

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

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

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