Dr. Varsha J Desai has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    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.

the only doctor I trust with my children

Dr. Desai has seen my children all their lives, she even saw me when I was a child. She's very straight forward and gets to the point. I know my children are in capable hands with her.

This doctor is foreign which may account for some of the social differences, but she was very impersonal to me and my child. She didn't seem sympathetic at all when my daughter was scared, and rushed through everything she did and said, which was bad because her accent was very hard to understand. I found myself missing a lot of what she was saying because she was talking so fast and so loudly. She gave me a couple different diagnosises on my daughters issue, treated nothing, and basically sent me back home to wait it out. The whole doctor visit my daughter was crying when normally she is just a little uneasy. I expect a pediatrician to have a warm comforting attitude and presence around small children but she does not. That may just be her personality, but I wouldn't take my child to her again, and I wouldn't want to be seen by her myself.
