Love Dr Desai

Dr Desai has been taking care of my daughter and me since she first started in practice over 20 years ago. There have been times when it was difficult to get through on the phone, and wait times can be tedious. They do seem to be getting better over the past year or so. I highly recommend her.

I have seen Dr. Desai 3 or 4 times. She has always given me plenty of time and concern. She treats me like she's known me for years. I am very comfortable with her and have never felt like she was rushing me out. Finally found a great doctor.

It's extremely difficult to get a same day appointment when you are very sick. You are put on hold forever and then when you do get seen it's like the doctor doesn't really listen to you, she seems like she just wants to hurry up and get you out. Even for regular visits it never seems like she trully listens to your concerns.
