What People Say About Dr. Pratik Desai, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Desai did a total revision on my wife's left knee. It went perfectly and to her surprise there was almost no pain. Several months later the right knee also needed surgery. By then we had moved to Tampa so we chose a surgeon there. This time things went badly. The joint was too flexible and she wasn't able to walk correctly for a year. When she had healed sufficiently we had the knee redone by Dr. Desai back in Orlando. Again, perfect joint alignments and a great job. Although my wife is undergoing PT, she walks with hardly a limp. Dr, Desai is the greatest.

Dr. Desai is a very caring and compassionate orthopedic surgeon with the Jewett Orthopedic Clinic. He took all the time needed to explain the x-ray, what was involved with total hip replacement and allayed my fears He, Brandi and the entire staff is warm, comforting and made me feel like "family" . To be able to walk pain free in less than three weeks - amazing! God Bless and thank you Dr. Desai for giving me my life back! Betty Chase, Ormond Beach, FL

I sought help from the Jewett Clinic nearest my home, and Dr. Desai as the hip specialist there. Positive reviews on this website inspired confidence, and he replaced my arthritic hip in late July, 2018, utilizing the least invasive anterior approach and an operating table designed, I believe, specifically for hip replacement surgeries. Full mobility and range of motion were restored after prescribed physical therapy. He is very professional, confident and competent. I highly recommend him.

Want to express my opinion to my recent left hip replacement surgery on 08/20/18 with Dr. Pratik Desai. If there was a higher recommendation than the word EXCELLENT, let me know, I would like to use it when referring to Dr. Desai's, professional appearance, bed side manners, his expert skills in joint replacement, and his concern and advice in follow up. I am so great full to have met and to have chosen Dr. Pratik Desai for my hip replacement. If need again, I wouldn't think twice about calling

Dr. Desai recently performed my hip replacement. There are not enough words of praise that I can say about him and his team. I traveled an hour to Dr. Desai's office because there was no one in this area who could compare. I am blown away by the level of professionalism and adherence to high standards that I experienced at Jewett Orthopedic Hospital and at Winter Park Memorial Hospital where the surgery was performed by Dr. Desai.

I came in for pain in my left knee which i suspected was a torn meniscus. I was told by this Dr I had arthritis and I would eventually have to have both knees replaced. His examination consisted of twisting my sore knee which intensified the pain from 5 to 10. He wanted to give me a shot and send me on my way. Went to another surgeon with a much better bedside manner and I'm healing nicely from meniscus surgery. Signed (Retired Veteran)

MY EXPERIENCE WITH A REVERSE SHOULDER REPLACEMENT PERFORMED AT BARTOW REGIONAL HOSPITAL UNDER THE HANDS OF DR.DESAI WAS EXCELLANT. HE IS A PROFESSIONAL FROM THE "GIT-GO" THROUGH THE LAST DETAIL. HIS COMPASSIONATE, KNOWLEDGEABLE DEMEANOR IS EVIDENT FROM OFFICE VISIT TO PRE-OP VISIT TO POST-OP FOLLOWUP. YES, HIS STAFF POSSESSES THE SAME HIGH STANDARDS AS WELL.

Dr. Desai has replaced both of my hips. He is an excellent surgeon with his patient's quality of life in the forefront. I would have no other Orthopaedic surgeon operate on me.

Doctor an hour late for my appointment. Unapologetic about over-booking. Diagnosed multiple hip problems. Said surgery wouldn't help. Found another surgeon. Problem solved.

Dr. Desai is an awesome doctor. He did a hip replacement for me. I am 30 years old and I was very worried about it, having just been married and expecting a new addition. He communicated very well with me on my condition. Always asked if I had questions and never acted like the were dumb. He was very knowledgeable even on my rare condition. His bed side manner is outstanding. Always made me feel unique and important.The surgery was flawless. The third party physical therapy even complimented him

I needed the best knee doctor in Central Florida and everyone pointed me to Dr. Desai, luckily. Having the reputation as one of the best at his young age really says something. He's personable, knowledgable and best of all you can tell he really cares about fixing you. He was highly recommended to me and so I'm paying it forward and recommending Dr. Pratik Desai to you.
