Provider Reviews

Dr. Desai is one of the very few people in my life that I don't want to disappoint. He truly cares about his patients. He is who I trust with my care.

Review for Dr. Priyanka

With Dr Miller and Clyde Blaylock I felt cared for. I was not rushed. I felt free to ask questions. My questions were always answered to my satisfaction. The explanations were clear. I like that it was explained what needed to be done next for a good recovery.

Review for Dr. Miller

I have already recommended friends. And I can’t wait for him to do my knee and hope it’s as easy as my hip

Review for Dr. Miller

He's very confident at what he does. He's a great surgeon. The staff and your experience is great. They send you daily reminders before surgery about when to stop your medications, and everyday after surgery they send you tips on how to rehab. I highly recommend Dr. Miller and his office.
