What People Say About Dr. Nita Desai, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I am not so much unhappy or disappointed in Dr. Desai herself as much as I am about the entire practice. I have been going to this office for almost 3 years and have lost count on the amount of time and gas money I have wasted due to their mistakes and the stress they have caused. Scheduling mistakes, scheduling me only to find out the doctor is not there, countless phone calls trying to straighten out medication mistakes, vaginal and bladder infections contracted during procedures.

Dr. Nita Desai at Dignity Health st josephs hospital is so so amazing. She just recently completed a laparoscopic hystorectomy on me and it was not easy. She had her work cut out for her with all my scar tissues and ESSURE. She treated me and my family like we were family. She was caring compassionate and very clean. Always washed her hands explained everything in detail that inwardly had any questions left over. She listend to our concerns and was there 100%. I would reccomend her to anyone. He

I just had surgery 2 months ago and my surgery went very well, she did a great job, she's a very professional dr., I'm very thankful with her and also with all doctors they don't have an easy job, we should give them the respect they deserve they're humans not god and something do mistakes, but that doesn't mean they're not good doctors.
