Dr. Desai takes his time to carefully listen to all my many, many questions and answer them all. He is so patient, and understanding ,especially when it comes to my anxiety regarding my diagnosis. So, if he ever runs late, which rarely happens, then , I know , he is giving another patient his time and care, just as he has given me, every visit. He is incredibly knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. I know he is THE BEST Oncologist who surrounds himself Best of the Best. I am so grateful!
