Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Nakua Desai is the best Doctor I have ever seen. She is very caring and thorough. She goes above and beyond when it comes to devoting her time to her patients and is diligent with follow up care. She listens and takes the time to discuss treatment options at length. I feel fortunate to have Dr Desai as my Primary Care Doctor. Having been a Nurse for 3+ decades I have had the privilege of working with some good Doctors but I consider Dr Desai as one of the Best. I highly recommend her.

Desrine C Dr. Desai has been my doctor for about 10 years. I find her to be extremely compassionate, caring and thorough. She constantly follows up to make sure her patients complete referrals. She spends quality time with her patients and I feel very comfortable When I go to visit her. I am so glad I was able to reconnect with her after she moved from her previous location. If you are looking for a doctor who really cares, I highly recommend Dr. Desai !!

Dr. Desai was my Doctor for three years until she left the practice I was a patient at. She was and is by far my favorite Doctor I’ve had in the U.S. (I’ve lived in the U.S. for 27 years) I’m generally not a frequent visitor to the Doctor but when I would go she would remember me and what I do for a living. She would sit and listen whilst I discussed my concerns and symptoms the whole time giving me eye contact and just sitting (I’ve had Doctors who are just typing away on their computer practically the whole time without a proper acknowledgment) She’s caring, compassionate, and genuine and will spend the necessary time needed with her patients to thoroughly evaluate and guide you through any health concerns you may be dealing with while making you feel safe and assured. I honestly cannot say enough good things about her. She’s one of those rare finds these days.

I have been going to Dr.Desai for almost 10 years, from a college student to professional. I have always felt comfortable with her in all my encounters, she listens and then comes up with a game plane on how to treat your issue/ problems. She is caring and really wants to help no matter the circumstances. When she left the practice I use to visit her at I became worried that she won’t be my PCP anymore. I googled her name and got in touch with her after almost a year. I will continue to seek her help as long as I can.

Dr. Desai is very intelligent and someone who will listen to you very well first before giving you alternatives. She will ask you what works for you in the past in similar situations. She is very patient and will spend as much time with you as necessary to fully understand your ailment. For prescriptions, she will give you alternatives and their side effects depending on your situation. She will take her time to explain what to expect next.
