Doctor and Staff

They need to be more courteous and have more manners. The doctor need to be more precise on his diagnosis and explain more explicit what is going on with the patient. He need to be able to answer the patients questions. He also needs to follow up with his patients and call them and he does.

Best Doctor

I have been a patient of Dr. Desmond for 24 years and I still go to him even though I now live in Westchester. Yes, he is that good. No matter what my ailment is he is able to get to the root of problem and find the remedy. His assistant, Dina is always super helpful and accommodating when it comes to appointments.
