Specialties

Dr. Kishorkumar Desai has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

Very thorough and professional

If your primary physician suggests that you see a rheumatologist to assist with a diagnosis, this is the man to see.

I have seen Dr. Desai twice, and both times felt very comfortable in his care. I did not feel patronized and experienced Dr. Desai as a humble physician.

I went in to see Dr. Desai at the urging of a friend at work. I've had swollen joints and a lot of pain for several months. I was barely examined, told it was probably osteoarthritis and that I should swim. I was also sent for blood work and told if results were not good or anything were to show up, they'd call and told (strangely) he didn't need to see me again. After not hearing anything for a few weeks and as my symptoms had continued and gotten worse, I called. It took my calling 5 calls to find out the results always being told they didn't know where they were, but would call and find out, then let me know. This never happened. Now I finally have them and have no idea what any of the tests results mean, as no one could tell me anything and was told he would write on the tests (faxed ) if anything was amiss. Nothing was written. Sadly it took me about 8 weeks to get into see him. I have another appointment in Nashville and hoping it goes better. Of course, that's another 8 week wait-having no clue what's causing my body to do what it's doing. My friend adores him, and he listens to her and tries everything to help her. I'm not sure why things went as they did. I was polite and well-organized. Oddly he recommended things I'd already told the nurse (with a typed list) I was doing-supplements and such. I would go elsewhere.

Dr. Desai is a wonderful doctor. After having gone to a different Rheumatologist for 8 years, I swiched to Dr. Desai. The first thing he did was take x-rays to see exactly what damage RA had caused to my joints so far. My old Rheum. had never done this. (Although it's a pretty standard procedure, when I requested x-rays from the old doc, he said we didn't need them). Dr. Desai is one of the most caring doctors I've been to. He is always receptive to my questions and/or concerns, never talks down to me, and never brushes me off (granted, he is very busy at times, so we must get down to business quickly). I would (and have) recommended Dr. Desai to other RA patients.

Horrible

Spent a total of 2 minuets with me, gave me the name of a drug and told me to have my family doctor prescribe it for me as well as some blood work. What kind of doctor will not write his own prescriptions or order blood work? He took no time to tell me what he thought was wrong with me, or address my pain issues. On top of that my next appointment is in 3 months! I can barely walk, but I'm supposed to wait 3 months ? It took a total of 5 minutes from me walking in the door to walking out. He really rushed me out of there. I'm finding another doctor, and recommend that you do too.
