I took my child to be evaluated by another phychiatrist because this Doctor never did. The report was sent to Dr. Desai who when we went to an appointment he was not aware of the report. We know it was recieved. We continue to have problems getting medications. My child stresses when she has to deal with employees which in turn stresses family members. It is almost impossible to get any answers over the phone. Sorry, because of these issues, I can not recommend this doctor or Walnut Ave Asso
