Dr. Desena was wonderful and very caring for my baby back in 2010. While he is very straight foward, i appreciate his knowledge and not being one who sugar coats anything. I truley appreciate him and would love to have him as my daughters doctor again. Thank you for everything.

Dr.Desena was very rude, impatient, and not at all what I would expect from a pediatric neurologist! In my personal opinion his behavior is what causes mistakes as well as inaccurate diagnosis to occur. I would not recommend him to anyone.

I see Dr. Desena frequently and I agree that he is very ubrupt and at my first appointment his aggressiveness was unexpected. Through time, as I get to know him, I see him as someone who is very relateable and free from personal judgement. It is apparent that he is very smart and very accomplished and I trust his medical opinion thoroughly.If you want hardened facts and real solutions Dr. Desena is your guy if you need a fluffy sugar coater perhaps look somewhere else.

Dr. Desena was very rude and has zero bedside manners. He was very degrading and belittling to me, and showed no empathy or compassion. His approach to my 15 month old daughter was very abrupt and made me uncomfortable.
