      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
