Dr. Rupal Desai has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I always did like the doctors at A-Z peds. I have been bringing my daughter there since she was born. 4 years later, I am seriously considering switching doctors. They are starting to be lazy and are taking their diagnosing lightly. We are always returning now her sickness would be worse. I am tired of being told that she is fine whens she gets worse. The staff is awful! What a miserable bunch! They make comments like, "She was just here" and they scoff at parents. How do these people have jobs? I don't get it!

Dr.Desai is very professional and a considerate doctor. Not only does she care for the children, she also gives then step by step directions on how to get better. I also know that she is very careful with children since she has two of her own. She is what you would consider to be a family doctor.
