Wonderful surgeon

I had a brain bleed that came on spontaneously. The ambulance took me to wilkes barre general hospital and dr. Agirwal evacuated the blood clot and saved my life. I will be forever grateful to him for his expertise.

Rudest most arrogant doctor I have ever had the displeasure of seeing

He was the rudest most horrible Dr. I have ever been to, he kept cutting me off acting like what I had to say was stupid, with a lot of eye rolling and acting like I was the lowest piece of filth that he couldn't wait to be away from! Even telling me I am more than welcome to get a 2nd opinion when I didn't even say anything to him!!!!! I have seen other doctors there that are nice and kind bibi would NEVER SUGGEST HIM TO ANYONE!! the worst bedside manner of any doctor I have ever been to anywhere!

Five Stars

Dr. Agarwal and his assistant were both remarkable - attentive, caring and extremely interested and helpful explaining all details of my care with a brain aneurysm that would need to be treated with a craniotomy. He referred me to his mentor for a second opinion to help ease my fears which resulted in both doctors agreeing to participate in my surgery. Needless to say, surgery and follow-up care resulted in a perfect result. I am now over a year out from surgery and doing great! Dr. Agarwal's bedside manner was extremely patient and thorough!
