Dr. Desai has been with me and treated me through my Stage 3 Prostate Cancer, he treated me and continues to monitor me through my entire Cancer Experience. I wouldn't have wanted to go through anything like this with ANY OTHER DOCTOR. I met a man in his waiting room who I worked with for 34 years. This old friend and coworker moved out of our area when he retired however he ALWAYS COMES BACK FOR HIS CHECKUPS WITH DR. DESAI. Then another friend I have known since 1ST Grade was treated him.

After a trip to the ER where I was told I needed to see a Urologist within 48 hours, he was the only one willing to se me inn that time frame. Others wanted me to wait 2 to 6 weeks. Very satisfied with the time he takes and his willingness to explain things .

I have been a patient of Dr. Desai for over a decade. Dr. Desai is an excellent choice for your urologist. He is knowledgeable and professional, and gives you the time you need to get a thorough exam and answer your questions. His office is fully equipped, with key procedure results being immediately available during the appointment. My appointments always run on time. The office staff are responsive and promptly answer / return any phone calls. I fully recommend Dr. Desai.

Dr. Desai was recommended to me by a relative who was pleased with his care. I concur completely. Very courteous, a good listener, reviews all pertinent issues, pleasant staff, goes out of his way to meet the patient's needs. I would recommend him to others.
Jim Thorpe, PA |
Dr. Desai is very easy to understand, spoke directly to my husband and I and answered all of our questions. This review is long overdue as it's been about six months since the vasectomy surgery. My husband was in surgery for about 20-30 minutes and walked out with Dr. Desai who greeted me and explained to me how to help comfort my husband post surgery. We did bring back the two samples at 6 and 8 weeks post surgery and were told both were clear. I appreciate Dr. Desai for his bedside manner most

Dr Desai is caring and concerned about my husbands well being. For over 3 weeks he made almost daily calls to the pharmacy to get my husbands prescription straightened out.
in Bath, PA |
Dr. Desai is wonderful. He is compassionate, knowledgeable and competent. He takes his time and really listens to concerns, addressing them while incorporating the needs and wishes of the patient. I actually enjoy taking my mother to see him. His office staff is BEYOND helpful, going above and beyond the call of duty to help with insurance issues and always addressing my concerns on the numerous times I have called them with issues, in between appointments. I am very grateful for them.
