There are far better doctors to choose from in Austin. I wouldn't recommend Dr. Desi to my worst enemy.

Rude doctor who was very impartial and unhelpful to me. Although she didn't know me at all, she accused me in a way I've never had any doctor or person treat me. She has never treated me, but was sent to try to discredit me because I had to leave Capitol Pain due to the severe need for a neck and back operation of which they denied me. Today I am better because I've had my neck fusion for 4 discs and back for 2 discs. They denied me needed help.

Is not straight forward. I had to suggest different studies to be done along with a plan of action. Had I not researched my condition prior to visit, I would not have a plan of action. That's sad because her first MR training is as a Phyciatrist and rehabilitation. Seems as thought she doesn't want to look at the big picture. I believe it's imperative to look at the whole.

Dr. Desai is such a beautiful woman-her personal care and grooming attest to her understanding of self-image,self-care, and dignity,reflected in her attitude toward me as her patient. Consistently attentive and thorough, I feel heard, understood, & confident in her professional care and ability in my ongoing treatment. She has excellent eye contact, listening skills, is easy to visit with; I feel understood as an individual person, not only a "patient". Such a delightful asset to your clinic!

I have always known Dr. Desai to be a very dedicated, kind, smart and special doctor. She's seems to be very genuine in her care for her patients and does her best to alleviate the pain and discomforts of her patients. It's wonderful to have great women doctors in the field of pain due to their ability to understand women in many respects because she can relate. I look forward to her having her own practice one day.

She is the Best Medical Professional I met in my 31 years on this earth. I don't know where to Start, She Cares, like really cares about her patients. SHE WAS AVAILABLE To HELP AND CALL IN A PRESCRIBTION ON THNKSGIVING DAY. I trust her with my health and will take her advice and recommendations without blinking an eye. I know i am going to be following her wherever her practice is and I am willing to fly to her office because I trust her and believe she cares deeply about her patients.

Have been helped by Dr. Desai with my back pain more than any other MD I've seen for this issue. Definitely appreciate the options and follow through. Would continue to see her if not for insurance issues.

This is one Great Doctor, whom listens and understands and is very knowledgeable and is very concerned with her patients. Allows patient to be apart of their treatments and know and understand what is going on and I admire her as a Physician. More like her are needed in the Medical Field.

Always takes the as much time as needed. Feel confident that they try to get to the root of the problem, not just treat the symptoms. Very kind, understanding, professional and friendly.
