I was born with cardiac problems. I like Dr. Desai a lot. He is willing to talk plain with me, and try new things out to try and improve my quality of life. If things are out of his league, he will tell you that and send you to another specialist that is even more specialized. This is the first cardiologist I've had that is willing to talk and get opinions from extremely specialized cardiologists. I recommend him!

Replaced my aortic valve from the groin, had a TAVR procedure. Is only one in town to do them referred from my cardiologist to Dr. Desai. Was home in 24 hours did a awesome job. Was extreme respected by my cardiologist who is much older than Dr. Desai!
