Review of Dr. Desai

- in Alexandria |

Very bad experience with this practice. Physical with this dr was rushed and perfunctory. Asked no questions other than the standard and didn't seem to listen to answers. Office doesn't seem that busy so not sure why the rush. In addition, she refused to see my teenage daughter for a long-scheduled physical when daughter was less than 10 minutes late due to terrible traffic near the office; daughter left in tears. Office staff unhelpful and condescending. We are switching practices; no excuse for this kind of treatment. There are plenty of Inova doctors; no need to see one who doesn't care.

Review of Dr. Desai

-

WARNING! I've made two different appointments to get a physical with this doctor and BOTH times the doctor has cancelled days before the scheduled appointment. It's been six months now and two appointment cancellations and I still have not seen the doctor. It's very difficult to get an appointment in the N VA area and I scheduled the appointment months in advance. I travel a lot for work and made travel plans around these appointments and the doctor just keeps cancelling the scheduled appts.

Dr Bijal Desai is extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough in her assessments. I feel very well taken care of at each of my appointments, and look forward to having her as my doctor in the years to come. Office is very efficient and well-run too! Look no further.

Review of Dr. Desai

Had to wait a month to schedule a physical, was late by 10 min due to traffic (thanks I-66) and long commute from work, Dr. Desai marked me as a no-show, said she didn't have time for appointment and I could reschedule (and wait another month). The lack of scheduling flexibility and transactional nature of interactions has me looking for another primary care physician unfortunately.

Review of Dr. Desai

- in Alexandria, VA |

Dr. Desai has been my primary care doctor for two or three years. I find her very professional, caring, and knowledgable. She has expectations from her patients just as we have expectations from our doctors. She is one of the two top primary care doctors I've ever had and I'm 76 years old.

Dr Desai is absolutely the best. She cares about her patients and will follow up with their care. She listens and is very attentive. I have recommended Dr Desai to several friends.
