I was with another oncology practice in E. Brunswick, however it seemed the doctor couldn't get my secondary problems under control. I started to lose faith and trust in him, so I moved on. Fortunately for me, I have a neighbor who was under Dr. Desai's care, and he highly recommended him. I find Dr. Desai to be a caring, good listener who spends quality time to answer questions. I feel he really is concerned with my overall health and well-being.

At the Somerset office, the front desk staffs esp. the young Caucasian with long hair, is very rude. She lets you wait over 30 minutes to check you in. You can hear her making negative comments about how things / changes at work, chatting a lot instead of working. When she asks for co-pay, she treats you like you owe her something. The NP and the nurses inside are exceptionally nice and caring. Dr. Desai is the only reason I go to the clinic, but I'm thinking of going somewhere.

Dr Desai is a skilled doctor and very professional. His staff in Monroe is horrific though! Unprofessional, overbook appointments, take lunch while you are waiting to be checked in for your appointments and then tell you that you have to wait until they are all done eating? Why schedule appointments if you're ENTIRE team is on lunch and nobody is at window?? The Somerset team is amazing and I will continue to see this doctor at that location only.
