Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Desai "I always treat patients like I would want a family member treated by their physician. Although I am a surgeon, I will always defer to a non-surgical treatment if that serves my patients best. I can guarantee that my patients will always receive ample time and never be rushed. I also hope that patient's will leave my clinic with a firm understanding of their problem and treatment. "

AWESOME doctor and he's a very nice person too. I will never be able to thank him enough, he gave me my life back. All of his nurses are wonderful too. And, as a bonus, the wait is never long, super efficient office.

I was skeptical at first because this dr was a little young. I felt as though he might be somewhat closed minded, pushy, or in a hurry to just get us out of the way. But he was exceptionally caring, patient, and wise. I am so glad my daughter has him as her hand specialist. I highly recommend...more
