If you are looking for a caring and knowledgeable doctor, Dr Desai is that man. I have been going to him for a few years now and I haven't had a bad experience. The staff is also friendly and helpful too.

I have been a patient of Dr. Desai for many years. He is kind and caring, and not hesitant to order tests or referring to a specialist.

Went to him as a teen and still recommend him as an adult. Actually cares about his patients health rather than a quick fix.
