I feel very fortunate to have had such a wonderful and caring doctor during my battle with cancer. And all of the staff are friendly and helpful. The nurses are the best and so, so kind.

Didn't want to hear what I was going thru. Now going to another Dr. because I'm still having issues. She was cold. This is why I will stay with MOFFITT CANCER CENTER.

We did not have a good experience with Dr. Desai and can't endorse a Doctor who wastes the time and money of Seniors. My elderly parents were made to wait 2 hours past their appointment time to see the Doctor with no apology or explaination. When they did finally get in to see her, there was no reason for the appt, other than collect a co-pay. They were informed my Dads' iron would have to be given over 5 weeks and another 5 co-pays instead the single dose he has always gotten. Bad news!
