Review for Dr. Nilay Desai, MD

I appreciate that Dr. Desai is always thorough, prompt, friendly, and concerned about my continued care. He asks questions, runs tests, and researches possible diagnoses when the answer is not obvious. I am grateful for his attention to detail.

Review for Dr. Nilay Desai, MD

he was very rude and condescending as well as brief and non-committal. his empathy was 0 and he was very unprofessional in general. he should have disciplinary action taken against him as I have several other friends who have the same comments.

Review for Dr. James Ketoff, MD

Dr. Holm has performed multiple operations with great success. These include bilateral knee replacements, hemi-shoulder replacement, and open fixation of a non-union tibia fracture. His manner is casual yet professional. He informs you of the treatment plan and rationale for it.

Review for Dr. Nilay Desai, MD

It took years to get a diagnosis, multiple providers who wouldn't listen...then I found Dr. Desai who actually took into consideration what I was thinking. Too think, I had seen endocrinologists on both sides of the country and found one who would listen in Rocky Mount NC.

Review for Dr. Nilay Desai, MD

No interaction at all prior to or after my heart cath. Supposed to be a great doc, but he has 0 bedside manners. I would not recommend him or his group practice at WakeMed.

Review for Dr. Nilay Desai, MD

I trusted Dr Navarro. But he forgot his hipocratic oath. And caused a lot of suffering with patient's with serious health conditions. He doesn't care about his patients and don't treat them, he refers them to everybody else.

Dr Desai, through testing, determined that I had a brain tumor. He referred me to a specialist at Duke University Hospital where the tumor was successfully removed. He is currently treating me for mild diabetes. He is very sensitive to his patients needs and I highly recommend him.
