Dr. Desai was great! His office was able to get in me in for an immediate consultation and quickly scheduled my much needed surgery for my broken wrist. In our first consultation he explained my break to me, what surgery would be like, and what post-op and recovery would look like. On day of surgery, his staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. My PT has been very helpful and knowledgeable as well. Dr. Desai and his staff helped to ensure that I was taken care of in this whole process

Mrs. Shelia Bailey I had surgery on July 7, 2016 for a trigger finger and another problem with my hand. It is now August 5, 2016; my surgery was very successful. The finger and hand is back to 100%. Dr. Desai is very knowledgeable, and compassionate; I would quickly recommend Dr. Desai to my friends. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Dr. Desai is the best of 3 hand surgeons I have seen. He is thorough without being pushy. He has a confidence-inspiring bedside manner. I believe what he says.
in Richmond, VA |
He operated on me in NOVEMBER 2011 performing Basal Joint Arthroplasty on my left thumb. After rehab and in the time frame promised, I now have 100% use. He was and is honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, excellent in his field, and only suggests surgery when needed. His staff is excellent and very attentive. Now I have new problems with the other hand and perhaps carpal tunnel in both hands. I know I am with THE BEST. He will give me a clear explanation of any surgery or treatment needed.
in Warsaw, VA |
Dr. Desai and his staff could not have been more pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend Dr. Desai and will go back to him if needed.
