Dr. Seema Agarwal has the following 4 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.
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.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

Dr. Agarwal is not a good doctor.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Seema Agarwal - Posted on March 9th, 2017
Dr. Agarwal is a negligent and irresponsible doctor. She never offered advice on the importance of nutrition, vitamins and exercise that a pulmonary patient should have. When she was asked to complete a mandatory form for a disability claim she drew a straight line through the most pertinent questions and wrote N/A. As a result, my claim was denied. When I asked her to write a short note to the company regarding the severity of my disease she responded by screaming at me over the telephone like a crazy woman. I have never been anything less than gracious in my interactions with her and the office staff. I am considering legal action, as I have lost financial and medical benefits as a result of her negligence. I have changed doctors and among his first words to me were "how can I help you?" Those are words that Dr. Agarwal will never use. If you want good care from a physician steer clear of this woman. The oath, First Do No Harm, is not in her vocabulary! The wait time for an appointment is 3 months. The office is staffed with lovely, competent women. Agarwal has no business practicing medicine.
