What People Say About Dr. Prakash Desai, MD
Reply
Dr. Desai is wonderful. I have had a cardiologist since age 8 and Dr. Desai has taken the best care of me. I moved to OKC and have been very very disappointed in the care from the new cardiologist. Dr. Desai always listens to concerns and addresses them with you. He never has treated me as less than a partner in my health care. He saved my life more than once and I will be forever thankful for his outstanding care.
