It took a while to find Dr. Sandy, but it was a turning point for me as she quickly discovered my nemesis that caused severe asthma attacks in the past, and her brilliant treatment plan has enabled me to live life on my terms, not limited by fear of wheeze or worse.

Dr Desai continues to take her time listening to all of my concerns. In the 34 years that I have had asthma, never have I had a Dr care so much and it really shows in the care she provides. Even after moving 45 minutes away, I continue to make the drive to see her. See is absolutely the best as is the office.
