    Dr. Desai is extremely knowledgeable and thorough with his checks and diagnosis. He prescribed a very effective treatment and my symptoms have significantly been reduced. I traveled from overseas for 2 visits with Dr. Desai as he was highly recommended by the a member of the european board of dermatologists. He definitely went the extra mile to ensure the treatment was available in my home country as well. Highly recommended!!
