Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
I met with Dr. Desai today for an emergency eye visit.. I felt hopeless since every doctor in NYC could not take me even for an emergency. Dr. Desai made sure to fit me in and personally made sure I was ok. The bedside manner was outstanding but most of all his knowledge of everything going on was beyond that. I was so thankful that he accepted me. I will be sending all my family and friends his way because they deserve the best!
