Complete care, great person

I was seen by one GI doc and then referred to him to do the same procedure for an ultrasound procedure and then tumor removal, wish I just went to him in the first place. He knows what he is talking about and even other GI docs call him for his opinion.

Such a great doctor!

Dr. Desai is wonderful. He clearly cares about all of his patients--he'll spend as much time with you as you need and answer all of your questions. Gastroenterology can be an embarrassing thing to discuss but he makes you feel completely comfortable about the situation. I feel like I can ask him anything and not be embarrassed! He also did an endoscopy and colonoscopy on me and I wasn't even nervous because I trust him so much. Thanks Dr. Desai!
