What People Say About Dr. Samir Desai, MD
Reply
I waited for over an hour and a half...and then left. Actually it was longer than that because I dutifully arrived 15 minutes early to do paperwork. I know doctors get busy and I am a pretty understanding person. However, there are basic courtesies. I only have had this kind of delay once before (and I am 70). In that instance, the nurse approached me with apologies and even offered me some newly received magazines to pass the time. This office did nothing. And the staff was not busy.
