Metairie, LA |
Dr Desalvo is the sharpest doctor I have ever seen. He is wonderful! Calling him a genius is an understatement! A true asset to the Metairie community!!
New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Desalvo fixed my nasal septum, scraped the bony scar tissue off my nose, and shrank my turbinates. He takes the time to talk to each patient. He did an excellent job surgically. Would recommend to anyone
