I give Dr. Desai a 4. ONLY because of his nurse. Dr. Desai is a fantastic Doctor and provides solid medical advice. His nurse on the other hand, is the opposite. If you need a good Pulmonary Specialist, Dr. D is your guy, just don't expect the same concern and professionalism from everyone at the office.

Robert Schmanski – Jul 24, 2021
I am very happy with the medical service I get from Dr. Desai, and the entire staff. they are always very kind and professional. Dr. Desai has been a great help to me over the pass two plus years. finding out and diagnosing what my health issues were and getting treatment for what seems to have been a lifetime dealing with. They may not be a total cure for what Ails me but, with the on going treatment I am confident that I can lead as normal life as possible. (not sure what normal is but, then again does anyone?) many Thanks go to Dr. Desai and staff. :)

Linda – Jun 16, 2021
I have been with Dr. Desai since June 2009. He did an emergency lung surgery and has been my specialist ever since. I love him and his wife!!!! His head nurse Debbie has been with him since before me. All the staff is very very friendly sometimes even funny. I recommend him to anyone who has breathing problems, sleep apnea( he does sleep studies) as well as allergies. They do the test and immunization on site. Wish I could give them 100 stars not just 5!!!

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.
