I and my wife have been coming to Dr. Desai office for several years. We have always found the staff helpful and courteous with a willingness to help. I have several issues with insurance companies and support documentation required for coverages. Dr. Desai and staff have always worked to provide the information I required. My wife and I will continue to come to Dr. Desai for our OSA needs.

This may not be a fair review. Dr Desai is not a bad doctor. That being said, obtaining replacement equipment for a CPAP is a nightmare on a good day. Sarah handles the medical equipment and she is too busy to call back. Beware of using Sleep Tight Diagnostics for your equipment too.

This doctor will not let the family ask questions without him signing off on the patient. This doctor has absolutely no respect towards the patient or their family and needs to have his credentials revoked.
