Dr Desai treated my 82 year old husband when he suffered a massive Inferior Myocardial Infarction that presented with 100% blockage of 2 main vessels of his heart. My hubby had to have CPR and be shocked as soon as care flight was making way to the ER at St. Mary’s hospital in Reno. Rushed in for an initial heart cath that required 4 stents to be placed; and my hubby survived even though he had to be shocked out of a lethal arrhythmia 5 or 6 more times!!! My hubby had to go back to have a 2nd heart cath in 3 hours, when 2 of his 4 new stents occluded! Dr. Desai performed the 2nd heart cath and again my hubby survived! Dr. Desai was extremely concerned that my hubby might bleed abnormally during the night and I was told that my hubby had suffered an horrific cardiac assault and wasn’t out of the woods!! The morning after, Dr. Desai stopped by to check on my hubby!! As I wrte this, my hubby is scheduled for discharge on Monday!!! Thank you, Dr. Desai and his medical team!!

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!
