Specialties

Dr. Aseem D Desai has the following 3 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Desai has changed my life after doing an excellent job on a catheter ablation for my atrial fibrillation. My heartrate has been normal for over a year. He has a pleasant bedside manner, is very thorough, and takes his time with you.

Perfect combination of competency, caring and communication

My sons have a rare genetic arrthymia. Dr. Desai was at once competent and confident, giving me the assurance that they were in good hands. He is also confident enough to seek the advice of other leaders in the field for rare conditions such as my sons - he never succumbed to the too-frequent tendency among specialists to pretend to the patient that there is no one else out there with views or answers on the issue. Sometimes in physicians, to get the most competent technical professional, it is necessary to compromise on bedside manner/communication/caring aspects. Not so with Dr. Desai. He is an amazingly well balanced, communicative, caring, competent professional. In my entire life, particularly in these last years, in which we have lived through 3 cardiac arrests of my son, never have I had a physician in which I have put some much faith on such a critical medical issue.
