Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Desai "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."

Patient Comments (4)
in Reno, NV |
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!

He has been my cardiologist for several years. I can say that he is by far the most caring, concerned, compassionate, knowledgeable and efficient doctor I have ever had. I can't recommend him highly enough, he is the best and I owe my life to his care.
in Sparks, NV |
He is very kind and caring. Explains everything you want to know. He found out what was wrong with me when others failed. I feel he saved my life!!
