Dr. Desai and his team preformed a TAVR procedure to replace an aortic valve. He is a caring, kind and ver professional and he gave me confidence that I would come through the procedure with great results. I would recommend his team and the entire cardiac unit at Saint Mary’s without reservation.

Before you read this review, read what Dr. Desai has written as his 3 basic principles. Without a doubt, Dr. Desai upholds these principals. He takes care of my elderly parents and has definitely prolonged their lives, answered every question; educated me on their issues and treatment options. He treats all of us with respect and kindness and my mom loves his hugs!

Wonderful, Delighful, polite, compassionate, understanding, patience are just a few words that can describe Dr. Desai. He is truly caring and one of a kind. I moved here two years ago and he has been my cardiologist since then. I wish he could move his practice to Texas as that’s where I’ll be moving. Best Dr. I know. He explains everything to you until you understand.

Dr. Desai has been my cardiologist for about 8 years. I can only say wonderful things about him. He is kind, caring and he listens to me. He hears all of my concerns and always has a plan to help improve my health. His bedside manner is also great and he has a wonderful sense of humor which is sometimes the best medicine.

Has performed several leg artery rotorootings for me--excellent results. In addition, is one of the most thorough all-around doctors I have seen. He actually reads patient charts and adjusts meds. He also scheduled next-day surgery to help me enjoy a previously booked trip.

I have been seeing Dr Desai for some time now. I would not dream of seeing anyone else. And have made him my 83 year old mother too. What REALLY stands out about this heart Doc is the time he gives you per appointment. He carefully explains EVERYTHING to you; and doesn't think that you are "to dumb to understand it". Since I learned I had a bad heart I've seen enough Doctors to know that Dr Desai is a special one. Great Doctor, Great knowledge, Great "bedside manner" You CANT find a better Doc!

About Me

Care Philosophy

I have three basic principles: 1) Everything we do should make you feel better or live longer. Any therapy or test should be geared towards this principle. 2) You should never leave the office without your questions answered. You should understand your condition and your treatment plan. 3) Every patient is treated the way I would treat my own family. Everyone is a V.I.P.
