My 1st encounter with Dr. Desai in 2015 when I was referred to him for treatment. He and all of the staff at St. Peter's were efficient and professional, friendly, caring, compassionate and helpful, from the receptionist to all of the technicians, nurses & other staff. They made the difference throughout my treatments. I am thankful for them all. Dr. Desai has a terrific bedside manner as well as being, caring, patient, and personable and he laughs at my jokes. 6 stars..******

I would highly recommend Dr. Desai and his staff for anyone who required radiation. He is a very caring, patient, and personable professional. He answered all my questions and concerns clearly. He made sure I understood each step of my treatment, and explained how and why procedures were being planned for my situation. I always felt comfortable, and treated with respect. The staff in his office are wonderful professionals who put me at ease and helped me through this scary journey.

I first met Dr. Desai in 2008. I found Dr. Desai and staff to be very professional and caring individuals. During my radiation treatments Dr. Desai made me feel comfortable and kept me well informed. He made a very difficult period almost enjoyable at times. He has a terrific bedside manner. I would recommend this doctor to all my my family and friends if the need arose. Every time I go back for follow up visits I feel like I'm visiting an old friend. Dr. Desai, you rock!!

Dr DeSai and his staff were wonderful during my difficult time of treating breast cancer last year. He was very informative & caring during the entire process. During my 36 treatments of radiation, he and his staff actually made it as enjoyable as could be by keeping a positive attitude and laughing at my jokes. Still to this day, since I've gone twice during my post-cancer treatments, Dr. Desai and his staff still continue to be very attentive and open hearted. 5 Stars!
