Dr. Ramesh Aggarwal has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.<br>These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Ramesh Aggarwal - Posted on July 25th, 2016
Today was my first visit to Dr Aggerwal and I will not be returning. He had a bad attitude from the moment he walked in the room. I have never been treated with such disrespect in my life. After 20 minutes of him asking me questions and me trying to explain my answers he told me to give him straight answers and that he was on a time crunch. I told him I didn't like his attitude so he stood up and said "Well make an appointment when you do like it." That I'd not how you treat people I don't care how long you've been practicing medicine.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Ramesh Aggarwal - Posted on April 28th, 2016
He would not feed a person in the hospital by IV because he said this person would "get an infection." Well, this person died just a few days later in the hospital. I would like to know, how a person would "get an infection" by feeding them through IV. We asked and he did not/could not answer. He may have been good for others, but I would trust somebody on the street before this person.
