I am a new patient with Dr. Desai’s practice, and my first appointment was a video chat because of the virus. I am extremely impressed with Dr. Desai. She spent a lot of time talking with me and going over my previous history. Dr. Desai asked me a lot of questions and offered me advice on some of my issues. She also is following up with appropriate bloodwork and tests. I feel very comfortable and satisfied with my initial visit with Dr. Desai.

Dr. DESAI and April Webber are great health care professionals. They are truly concerned about a patient’s health and they take the time to listen to the patient and explain a treatment plan. My wife and I both went to several doctors until we found Dr. Desai’s Office. Her office staff is very helpful and courteous as well. I would Highly recommend Dr. DESAI and her staff. Jim

I am retired from the medical industry and I am totally satisfied with Dr. Desai and her staff. Their knowledge, patience and tenacity during my initial communications was superior. It is my pleasure to have been able to become a patient of this outstanding medical practice. Dr. Desai really does care about her patients, noted through her mantra of "I Belong to You". They are medical professionals that I expect and appreciate. I have already recommended Dr. Desai and her staff to several individuals. Thank you

My telehealth appointments with both Dr. Desai and April were an excellent way for me to access health care when I was not feeling well enough to attend in person. I appreciate the quick response when I needed healthcare. I also appreciated the referral process to other providers which went very quickly.

First visit. Dr. Desai spent almost an hour going over previous records. and her new patient forms. She then formed a plan of action and discussed tests she wants me to have before returning to her office. Dr. Desai is thorough and approachable even though she had other patients in the office. I am looking forward to a long relationship with Dr. Desai and her staff.
