This is my first time using dr. Desai as my doctor. I love the promptness and the fact i dont have to wait long to see him. However the most important thing to me is my baby and everytime i come to him with a symptom he brushes it off almost makes me feel like im crazy because that kind of stuff is normal. Never took the time to actually look in stuff justso i can have a piece of mind or to further explain these things to me in a way that would ease my concerns. Just feel rushed and that could be why the wait time is not so long...I feel more connected with my specialist than this guy and yes im getting ready to be 37 weeks next week and thats the only reason i have not changed doctors.

The only OBGYN to ever exist...

I could go on for days about Dr. Desai. He is an absolutely great great doctor. I've had 2 pregnancies and he was my OB with both of them. I am very satisfied with everything that he done throughout both of the 9 months. I just found out that I am expecting again and I cannot wait to make a doctors appointment with him so I can go see about our new little one. Dr. Desai is not only my doctor but he tries to get to know you on a personal level and I like that, the more your doctor knows about you the better off you are. I strongly recommend everyone to use him for your pregnancy. HE IS AMAZING
