Bedside Manor

Dr.Desai's may have written many books but his "beside manor" leaves much to be desired. When dealing with eyesight and potential blindness, I would anticipate a doctor who makes you feel you are in his safe & capable hands. Perhaps his focus and performance reflects in his excellent work -- still awaiting to have treatment.

A good place

My appointments involve multiple tests done by different staff members, as well as a long wait for the eyes to dilate. The staff has always been professional and courteous, and Dr. Desai is a nice, caring doctor.
