Patient Comments (1)

I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma over 8 years ago by Dr Desai. He saved my life. His knowledge, understanding, patients, and attention to my individual care was and still is world class. I would highly recommend him for anyone diagnosed with cancer in the McHenry County area.
