What People Say About Dr. Samit Desai, MD
Dr. Desai had to deal with the worst case of pneumonia in me and he was calm through the whole episode, giving confidence that I will recover. He took the pains to talk to my immunologist and work his plan through. Great bedside manners. Clear in his communication and thinking.

He is one of the most unprofessional, nasty doctor I have ever met...I would never recommend him to anyone and cannot believe he practices medicine! His office is unorganized and do not give messages and lie as well...horrible place He is uncaring and rude and a very arrognant man.
