Spring, TX |
Dr Desai is amazing. She spends time going over your symptoms and treatment plan without rushing you. She has been a life saver. I have managed to shed weight brought on by pre-diabetes that was impossible for me to lose through her treatment plan. I highly recommend this doctor. She is the best.

She is extremely attentive, caring and works very closely with me to find the right treatment for my condition. I love being able to send questions on the patient portal. This way of communicating is perfect for me as a busy working mom. She is always prepared to discuss my test results and asks for my opinion on the treatment plan. She is simply amazing and my experience has been nothing short of awesome every time.
in Katy, TX |
She is punctual, she spends time with patients and listens to them. I feel confident in her knowledge. She has helped me with my medications. I am doing much better with my diabetes.
in Texas City, TX |
I am 36 year old female and have a number of conditions so I have seen so many doctors over the years, but none compare to her. She is always smiling. She is extremely kind, patient, and actually listens so that she can provide the best care possible. She checked on me between appointments via email to see if I was doing alright or even to just to answer a question. Which I have never seen. I feel lucky to have found her.
