Raised in Maryland, Dr. Aggarwal received a scholarship to attend the University of Maryland. She did research at the National Institutes of Health while attending college and after graduation. After her nephrology fellowship, she remained on the UC Davis Kidney Transplant staff for two years before joining Chabot Nephrology in 2008.
She has special interests in kidney transplantation and hypertension. She also cares for patients with chronic kidney disease, including patients needing hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Given her experience at a university transplant center, she offers her special skills in helping patients navigate the process of transplant referral, as well as evaluation of potential donors.
She also follows patients after transplantation.
"I am fully committed to patient education and feel that there should be a partnership between the physician and patient. I also feel a physician can guide a patient toward better health, but it is the patient that must make the day to day life changes that ultimately will result in better health.”
Dr. Aggarwal is married and has two children. In her free time she loves to cook and coach soccer. She also enjoys photography.
