I started with Dr. Desai in 2014, one year after finding out I was type 2 diabetic. He and his staff immediately became concerned with my health and did a great job at getting me insulin free. I am now much healthier and have come a long way since my first visit. As a type 2 diabetic it takes an Endocrinologist to get your diabetes under control. I've lost weight and I am making less visits to all doctors thanks to Dr. Desai and his office.

Dr. Desai has treated me for a number of years for both a thyroid condition and type II diabetes. I am always seen quickly. many times when I have arrived early I have been taken in well before my scheduled appointment. Dr. Desai is always prompt through and friendly. He has always been good with any questions I have had and explained them in terms I could understand. I have been very satisfied with my treatment provided by Dr. Desai and his office.

Dr. Desai takes a very thorough approach with his patients. When I had a medical issue unrelated to the one for which he treats me, he continued to do research and offer suggestions to my other physicians on possible diagnoses. I appreciate the timeliness with which I am seen and the care taken with me.

He has been my doctor for about 7 years. I was referred to him for my thyroid goiters. He recommended surgery after a change in my film. It was thyroid cancer. I thank him for being caring and concerned for my will being as a patient.

Dr. Desai is open minded when it comes to treating patients with Hashimotos Thyroiditis. Of course he has a wealth of knowledge about this autoimmune condition, but he is also wiling to listen to his patients and is more concerned about their symptoms than just the results of blood tests. Many Endocrinologists will not use Armour Thyroid and will only use Synthroid or some other synthetic T-4. We switched to Armour and have had great results. Dr. Desai teaches and listens.

Dr. Desai has been instrumental in the improvement of my health. He was able to quickly determine the best treatment plan to gain and maintain control of my diabetes. While under Dr. Desai's care, my A1C has improved from an 11 to a 6.2. Dr. Desai cares about your overall health. He takes the time to talk to you during appointments. I've never felt rushed as if he's just moving from patient to patient, which is important to me.

It took years to get a diagnosis, multiple providers who wouldn't listen...then I found Dr. Desai who actually took into consideration what I was thinking. Too think, I had seen endocrinologists on both sides of the country and found one who would listen in Rocky Mount NC.
