Saved my life

Where many doctors think they are God, Dr. Desai does not. He is very caring, patient, and kind. Years ago, after saving my life I said, “Thank you, Dr. Desai, you saved my life”. Dr Desai replied, “I'm just a doctor, God saved your life”. It is rare to find such humbleness and the level of concern, and care he demonstrates. Recently, I had a very long, involved surgery that would be performed at a hospital that is normally not frequented by Dr. Desai. However, knowing my apprehension (I literally was afraid I was going to die) he agreed to be my hospital physician for the surgery. I know it took a considerable amount of time from his schedule to go to this hospital a good distance from the hospitals he regularly has patients just for one patient (me), but he did it. In fact, I didn't awake to the nurse in recovery, but opened my eyes to see Dr. Desai standing at my bedside, in recovery, waiting for me to wake up. He was a welcome site.
