Return To Care Team



As an invasive, non-interventional cardiologist, the scope of Dr. Agrawal’s practice is all of general cardiology with particular interest in coronary artery disease and heart failure.

Cardiac disease is a major health issue in the United States, and he is grateful to be able to help people with heart problems.  He is honored that people entrust the care of their hearts to him every day.  With the appropriate diagnostic evaluations, treatments and compassionate care he hopes to protect his patients’ hearts as best as possible and provide them with the best quality of life.

Dr. Agrawal’s wife is a family physician in the area, and he has two daughters.  Between work schedules and his daughters’ activities, he admits that life can be hectic.  In his spare time, he keeps track of the professional Chicago sports teams.
