Specialties

Dr. Rikesh R Desai has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Good doctor but...

Dr. Desai has been my primary for two years. He's a busy doctor (it seems) so wait times can be lengthy. The average amount of time he spent with me is about five minutes, so I don't really feel I could get all of my concerns out. Office staff can be rude and cold, especially when calling for a same day appointment. Nurse practitioners in this office have neglected to return a very important phone calls as well. Overall, the doctor his self is comfortable to see, he's competent and caring, but he is also too busy and his office staff can definitely use an improvement.

Retirred Professional

Dr. Desai knocks then enters the room with a big smile and handshake. He is always dressed professionally and has the shiniest shoes of any male Dr. I have seen. He is concerned why you are there and can tell, on some visits, that you are very sick before you even say anything. There are times that he suggests that I see a particular Doctor for an additional opinion. It wasn't really necessary as he was correct with his own diagnosis. I feel very blessed to have found Dr. Desai approximately 5 years ago.
