Wonderful experience with Dr. Desser. He and his staff worked tirelessly togather necessary documents to have my surgery approved . My recovery is in process. My physical therapist is impressed with my progress.

Dr. Desser 's quick and excellent diagnosis of a herniated disc and Foot Drop saved me from losing use of my foot. I could have been unable to walk without dragging my foot,which was caused by the herniated disc compressing the peroneal nerve which allows us to bend our feet and walk. Look up FOOT DROP. I will always be grateful to Dr. Desser. I had emergency surgery that night by neurosurgeon Dr. Farris Fakhoury.. God Bless both of these FANTASTIC doctors. I am walking 3 miles everyday!

Dr. Desser is the best, if someone had a bad comment about him and his staff they have a problem themselves, I would follow him to the moon if need be.

My experience with Dr. Desser has been great. He listened to me. He actually let me explain what my problem was. I felt like we worked together to get me better. We cooperated in solving my problem. My care, both in the office and the hospital was above excellent. I would and have referred people to Dr. Desser. Now he has moved and I need to find out where because I would like to continue care with him. Loretta Holaday

I went to Dr Desser after having a TKR gone bad. My original Dr wouldn't admit anything wrong. I went to Dr Desser and after ruling everything out, he scheduled surgery. He then canceled surgery 3 days prior because as he had mentioned he wasn't sure what my problem was. He requested a few other exrays and after consideration the surgery was on again. He still made no promises...truth be told after he took the mess that was there out and reconstructed my knee I'm in better shape then imagined

Will not be going back there, for people that are in the health care industry the staff in this office are rude, have no compassion. Went there the first time after a bad accident, Dr. Desser wasn't bad his staff however was so rude, one of the ma's was shouting at me and the X-ray tech because I could not bend my left knee, I went back for them to review my MRIs didn't not see Dr. Desser saw a PA that was extremely rude and unprofessional. Now I'm requesting my bills and they won't give.
