I met with Dr Desai to stabilize diabetes treatment.He changed my medication with little explanation, informed me that he was leaving the practice, assured me that we would meet to finalize medications/dosages after labwork was done. This appointment was canceled with no opportunity to reschedule. He did give me a coupon for a new med, though, so at least he made some $.This practice (including nurse Elena Stockton) left me feeling like a profit unit. I have no confidence in Dr Desai whatsoever.

Dr. Desai is amazing. This clinic has had a lot of doctor turnover. Dr. Desai has been there now the longest so I hope he stays!!!!!!

I'm a doctor and see Dr. Desai for my care. I was referred to him from other medical colleagues. He is indeed the doctor's doctor because many of us go to him for our care. He is thorough and caring. Most people who have a great experience don't bother to leave reviews but I felt compelled to leave one after a recent visit. If you care about your health, go see him.

It was not a good experience. He didn't even do my blood work when I visited him with my illness. Found an alternative Dr by myself.

My experience was poor. I found Dr. Desai to be condescending. My annual physical exam was incomplete: he never listened to my heart or lungs, he did not look into my throat or eyes, he did not ask me about sleep apnea, despite it being listed on my history form.
