Dr. Rajeev Agarwal has the following 2 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

We have had nothing but bad experiences with Agave pediatrics. Initially we were told that with our 2 private insurances that we wouldnt have a bill at all. Our son had to have his tongue tie done 2x due to the first procedure not being enough, and his lip done also. After multiple calls dealing with billing, the Office manager, etc, there still was no resolve. They continued to put the blame on us as the patient, and concluded we owe them over $700 in procedure costs. After talking with one of our insurances we were told to have them rebill under a different code, which they wouldnt do. In the end our sons birth cost us $123 from all hosp., pediatricians, anastethesis, lactation consults, wellness visits, etc. Our few visits with Agave currently are being billed at well over $700. Please look at other options if youre researching laser tongue ties. Nobody deserves to be treated like a pocket book after the birth of their child.
It has been two months since my colonoscopy. I have not gotten in to see the doctor yet because they keep changing my appointment. They wanted to do a cat-scan and cancelled my appointment now for another month. I have called the office to schedule a CAT scan and they never call me back. I am in a great deal of pain, and they just don't understand. It just does not matter to them.
Dr. Agarwal uses cautery and is not performing a complete tongue tie or lip tie release hence the need for multiple revisions which only leads to scar tissue. I have been told he cannot go deep enough with cautery to achieve a complete release. He also divides up the tongue and lip into seperate office visits/procedures. Go to a pediatric dentist trained to perform both a lip and tongue tie revision in one visit with laser which is far more precise and less painful.
Within a day from being released from the hospital my nipples were sore and cracked despite efforts from the hospital lactation consultant. My step-mom who is an IBCLC told me to have the pediatrician check for tongue and lip ties. Our first ped told us at his week appointment that there was nothing wrong and even if he had a tie they donât need to be revised. Needless to say as my nipples were telling a different story and my son was losing weight we got a second opinion. We went to Agave Pediatrics at the advice of my step-mom and NP Penny saw right away that there was both a lip & tongue tie. The appointment for TT revision was scheduled and completed within 48 hours. I bf in the office and noticed a huge improvement right away. We did the TT exercises to promote healing and prevent reattachment. Though my son didnât gain weight as fast as he should have, they never pushed formula on us and were fine with me continuing to bf on demand and wake him at night for feeds, as well as offering more hind milk, until he regained his birth weight. He is now a happy, healthy, 20lb 1 year old. We also had Dr A do our LT revision at a year old. The intermittent pain I had experienced since my son got his teeth in disappeared after the LT release and Iâve had no more pain since. Dr A and his staff were amazing. The procedures went smoothly both times and we gave arnica for pain prior to the procedures and as needed after for a couple days. There was very little bleeding (he had thick ties released both times) and it only lasted for a day with the first few sweeps we did. Both times Dr A brought my son back to me snuggled up in his arms and told us how good he did. He really cares about his patients and I will have future children checked by him immediately after birth. We were so impressed we made them our regular ped
