What People Say About Dr. Arpan Desai, DO

While the doctor is great, the office staff is incompetent, at best. They couldn't find my paperwork, lost my information more than once, and did not properly file with my insurance. They didn't even know why I was there. If you can get past their ineptness, Dr. Desai is a good doctor. He listens carefully and will not push to take steps that aren't necessary just so he can cut on you or make more money.

I can't say it all, but by far I love the staff always very nice, Dr Desai is so caring, i love the fact he talks to you ask how everything going on with me, informs you on the procedures before and after its done, the staff have called after my procedure to see if I'm okay I've been telling my family how compassionate everyone treats me

First time at Dr. Desai's office and was very happy with the level of professionalism from the minute I walked in. Everyone was very welcoming, was back to my room very quickly. Dr. Desai took his time talking thru my symptoms and also the procedure in depth to make sure I was comfortable. Have passed his information along to friends and family and will continue to do so.

Honestly, I can't say enough on how Dr. Desai cares for me as a patient. His manners, concerns are genuine, makes excellent recommendations which lead to successful surgery and followup care fabulous. He has been treating me now for almost 2 years has helped beyond compare. Seriously strongly recommend Dr. Desai. With the recent change in office manager to Brett, the issues of the past are gone.

The office staff is very friendly here. Dr. Desai is a very genuine and caring physician that listened to what my issues were and was able to give me answers, when no one else could. I have improved so much since seeing Dr Desai and I am really pleased. Highly recommended !

The dr is great it is the admin that doesn't take care of patience. My wife for a month trying to get the prescriptions that she needs but the admin sends it to Walmart and they don't have it. Also they had my wife come out of the dr with out being in a wheel chair, She was still drowsy. Would not recommend this dr and the admin.
