Vancouver |
After seeing 3 other dermatologists for hair loss, I now understand why it takes 3 months to get in to see Dr. Desai. She actually takes the time to listen, will look at prior labs and scalp biopsy, with a critical eye, and shocking will actually take the time to look at my scalp. I can't recommend her enough. Don't look anywhere else of you have hair loss. She's the best!

Amazing person and dermatologist. She is so personal and actually LISTENS to your concerns. I highly recommended her to anyone looking for someone who is down to earth and extremely bright.
