Talked down to me and did not listen. Jumped around from topic to topic so abruptly I could not keep up. I walked out at the end untreated and frustrated. Not the doctor for me and a waste of time and money.
When attempting to setup an appointment with Dr. Dasia's office, the staff refused to setup an appointment when they discovered I was in the military. Stating "they don't do the Active Duty thing" I was denied an appointment. I was flabbergasted at this statement. After confirming with my insurance provider this was a covered practice, Dr. Desai's staff stated that I wouldn't pay the bill subsequently refusing to setup an appointment. I have never been rejected due to my military status until today. This office is rude, speaks over the patient, and is discriminatory. If you are in the military or have family in the military, please remember the sacrifice's you and your family have made before calling this office.
Rude. Agree with the patient who stated that he talks down to you. My wife and I both have been patients and we bring notes to ask questions. That is useless, he does not listen. After years of coming to his office he still does not recall what we have shared. Recently moved into an OB office and is a sole practioner, more impossible to reach than ever. Horrid if any communication skills, lack of care is too aggravating. No member of my family will go back.
I was having severe indigestion and heartburn. I followed his suggestions on my diet, timing of eating, what to eat and what not, supplements not to take and what not, etc. and felt better about a week later and the problem gradually dissipated. His exam and questioning was very thorough. Definitely recommended.
