“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Agarwal to Lynn Cancer Institute,” said Louise Morrell, M.D., medical director at Lynn Cancer Institute. “Our patients will benefit from his expertise and approach — he applies the newest testing technologies with a unique, evidenced-based plan to best serve his patients.”
Dr. Agarwal’s approach includes the developing branch of theranostics, which uses radioactive isotopes to help diagnose and treat certain cancers. He regularly incorporates genomic testing into his practice and uses advanced imaging and other tests to create personalized treatment plans for patients. His research on gene therapy and oncology is published in peer-reviewed medical journals.
Prior to joining Baptist Health, Dr. Agarwal was in private practice, and medical director of radiation oncology at Broward Health, where he implemented the county’s first CyberKnife program. He currently serves as an affiliate assistant professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine.

He completed an internal medicine residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center and a radiation oncology residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
