I just wanted to take a minute to encourage new mothers out there not to give up on breastfeeding! After getting off to a rocky start, baby Kellan and I are now a success story. He was a great nurser, instantly latching on minutes after birth, but I was surprised that this \"natural\" process was so complicated! I quickly developed cracked, bleeding nipples. Baby was taken off the breast for a week so I could heal...I was to pump every 2 hours around the clock. They healed, but as soon as I put him back on they were bleeding again. Nothing helped, nipple shields, creams, a visit from LaLeche league. Dr. Agarwal discovered he had a tongue tie, so he was sucking too vigorously. Meanwhile, my milk supply was diminishing from only pumping. Dr. Agarwal released hios tongue tie, and baby was back on the breast later that day...well, sort of. He didn\'t recognize the breast after having bottles for so long. Desperate, I visited a lactation consultant referred to me by Dr. Agarwal\'s office. She was wonderful, and after an hour and a half of working with us...he was back on! The first week was rough, I wasn\'t sure of myself and he fussed at every feeding. Lots of tears were shed, but I refused to give up! Fast forward, Kellan is almost three months old now and we are a success story! I pump at work, and exclusively breastfeed the rest of the time. He gladly accepts a bottle, breast and pacifier. Breastfeeding comes easily for some, but not at all for most! Please ladies, hang in there, see a good lactation consultant and be patient, it is SO worth it for the health of your baby.
Two weeks after the tongue tie procedure, we went forward with the lip tie procedure with Dr. Agarwal. This was performed one week ago. It has made a HUGE difference! It is like I am nursing a whole new baby! I finally know what nursing should be like! Everything is SO much better!! I want to thank you for all of your help and sticking by me for so long! I'll be in touch again in the near future. Take care, Samantha
AMAZING DOCTOR AND BEDSIDE MANNER! I've been taking my children to Desert Ridge Children's Center for a while now and have loved all the doctors there, but we started seeing Dr. Agarwal specifically because of my son's kidney issues. I'll tell you what, he is truly amazing. He is one of the kindest, most genuine doctors I've ever met. He really cares about patients and also about the parents and how they are doing if all questions/concerns are addressed, and he also is extremely competent and knowledgeable. He is really what medicine should be about. He is in demand and is always busy, and sometimes we have to wait a bit to see him, but it is only because he takes his time with his patients. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Agarwal!
I have used Dr. Agarwal since my daughter was born in 2005. He is absolutely THE BEST!! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

THE BEST PEDIATRICIAN YOU COULD WISH FOR! Office is friendly and always available. Dr. A is amazing. Very attentive and excellent at his job. Has the bedside manner most doctors nowadays do not take the time out to do anymore. I have three children that have been in his care for the past 8 years and they love him. Would highly recommend should you be so fortunate to live near by.

My daughter, 17, has had recurring kidney issues. We live in Tucson, and trying to find a PEDIATRIC Nephrologist is like pulling teeth. It finally came down to an urgent need to be seen. He was the ONLY one with a staff that was caring enough to get her in quickly. From stepping into his office, we felt at ease. He has amazing metal artwork up that he himself has painted. The staff was courteous and professional, but kind as well. And Dr. Agarwal, well, I think that many Drs could take lessons from his approach in dealing w/ patients. It turned out that the kidney problem was treatable, but the way he explained it to us by drawing it out on paper, made it so much easier to understand. He was wonderful w/ my daughter and made her feel at ease w/ jokes, etc. I feel that he was/is worth the drive knowing that he will correctly diagnose my child and explaining it so all may understand. He's the BEST!
