Excellent Choice for Urologist

I have been a patient of Dr. Desai for over a decade. Dr. Desai is an excellent choice for your urologist. He is knowledgeable and professional, and gives you the time you need to get a thorough exam and answer your questions. His office is fully equipped, with key procedure results being immediately available during the appointment. My appointments always run on time. The office staff are responsive and promptly answer / return any phone calls. I fully recommend Dr. Desai.

I was diagnosed with STAGE 3 PROSTATE CANCER. It was a surprise to my wife and I both since I never felt ill. I received the max of radiation treatments and 24 months of hormone therapy from Dr. Desai. He is every thing you want and need in a doctor.

Wonderful, caring doctor. Not pushy at all, yet extremely careful to get to the root of the problem. Will take time to call you personally after the procedures to check up on you.
