Dr. Desai is very knowledgeable and all about the business at hand! He doesn't sugar coat anything, which is needed by many of us, myself included (lol). He is real about everything and I appreciate that. His new receiving staff is amazing!! New, fresh and positive energy! I love my nurse (male, cannot recall his name at the moment) also!

I have been a patient of Dr. Desai for nearly 10 years. He is extremely competent, knowledgeable, and professional. He has helped me tremendously with several medical issues. One of the things I appreciate most about Dr. Desai is that he listens to me. I don't have the training to diagnose myself, but I do know how I feel. Dr. Desai listens and includes my input in his consideration. He seems genuinely concerned about his patients. I have recommended him, with confidence, to friends who have similar medical issues.

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.

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.
