When I read these reviews, I do not know who everyone is writing about. True, my first visit with Dr. Desai was a good visit. The second visit, approximately a year later, was terrible. There was no compassion or professionalism. I cannot imagine having this man as a cardiologist/doctor.

Dr. Desai is one of the most compassionate physicians I’ve ever met. He treats both my husband and myself. He follows up with his patients and has even called us at our home. Dr.Desai is an excellent diagnostician in addition to being a caring physician.

Dr. Desai treated my husband and is now my cardiologist. He takes time to answer questions and never makes you feel rushed. He is very calming and reassuring and always takes time to answer any phone calls. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Desai is one of the best doctors with whom I have come in contact. He is always available to answer questions, and his answers are thorough. He frequently gives me the opportunity to ask additional questions, and he explains all procedures as if he assumes the patient has a modicum of intelligence. I appreciate being treated as an educated adult. Dr. Desai impressed my wife so much that she is now a patient of his as well.
