    My cataract surgery performed by Dr . Desai was the least stressful and most pain-free surgical procedure I have ever had done. I am impressed with the professionalism of the staff.
    in Clearwater, FL |
    Dr. Desai presented several options for my cataract surgery and I chose one of the more expensive ones. Today I can see more clearly than ever before. It's amazing. He did a fantastic job and wasn't satisfied until I could see perfectly, which is something I never really expected. I can't say enough nice things about him.

    Why Does Experience Matter?
