    How was your appointment with Dr. Desai?

    Aug 21, 2021
    Dr. Desai is very knowledgeable, friendly, honest, and thorough. He was able to diagnose my condition and continue to monitor it. When problems came up I was seen quickly, we altered the plan and continued on my path of healing. He is respectful of the patient's wishes however, he will tell you the repercussions of delaying treatment. I appreciate his honesty, his friendly bedside manner, and his expertise.
