Patient Reviews (3)
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.

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.
