I have been seeing Dr. Bharat Desai for 3 tears now, and I feel that he is the best PCP that I have had in the last 15 years. He listens to what I have to say, and with me, that's not easy. With him it's straight talk, no beating around the bush, He will always answer question honestly. I trust him! His staff is A1, you couldn't find a nicer, more understanding, patient group of people at any other office.

at one time he may have been a good doctor but those days are gone. He is rude he is condescending he does not listen to his patients and he does not order appropriate diagnostic testing. Twice I ended up in the hospital due to his arrogant negligence a patient who was new to him statements. Medical receptionist dictates what treatment will be done Without speaking to Dr been refused to recuse himself from the case once I was admitted.

He wasn't concerned about my problem enough to listen and said women experienced these things. I'd been experiencing this for some time and needed someone with understanding. I was very disappointed in him.
