      Excellent doctor. The only problem is he's booked way in advance. But if you check in frequently you can get an appointment when someone else cancels.
      Van Nuys, CA |
      First and foremost the best receptionist ever. She's so nice and helpful. The doctor was friendly and seemed honest.
      Dr. Desigan is a top notch specialist. And he's good and kind. I just had a very bad experience scheduling an appointment with one of his assistants named Janice (or sounded like Janice) today. She was so haughty and rude. I've been going to Dr. Desigan's office since 2009 and all his assistants in the past have all been nice and accommodating. Janice is not an asset to this clinic.
