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.

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.
