Dr. Desai is pleasant, knowledgeable, and caring. He addresses the health of the whole person, not just the body part he is treating. One office staff person could use some retraining in interpersonal relationships.

I am a diabetic patient of Dr. Desai. We all know about our struggles with the disease. I consider myself more than lucky to have found Dr. Desai. He is a top professional and a wonderful doctor. He is so tender, understanding and a good listener and never will give you a feeling of force choosing medications and treatment. I can without hesitation recommend Dr. Desai as a top health care professional who makes a patient feel comfortable during a visit.
