Extremely professional and straight to the point. My double hand surgery was an immense success. My hands are pain free after so many years of constant numbing fire pain. I recommend anyone needing hand surgery to insist on Dr. Desai. The surgical staff was top notch and very communicative and super friendly.

Dr. Desai was very nice this visit. He is usually nice, but times he's out of there pretty quickly. This time, he took more time. Apparently, he was not as stressed. Doctors get stressed too, but patients are stressed and nervous!

I was experiencing Trigger Finger in my thumb. It was extremely painful when I attempted to bend it. Dr. Desai was extremely patience and the shot he gave me in my thumb was almost painless. He is excellent and I would recommend him to everyone I know.

I am a new patient and could not be more happy and impressed with Dr Desai’s knowledge and experience ordered xrays and a emg to get to the bottom of what's going on with my hand

I've seen Dr. Desai on several occasions over the years for issues with my right elbow and thumb. He is always on time, very friendly and personable and is very knowledgeable about his field. He does a thorough examination of the patient's complaint to make sure he makes the proper diagnosis and completes the necessary tests. Dr. Desai is very professional and takes his job and patients seriously. I feel glad to have him as my doctor.

Check in and wait time 10 minutes. Staff was friendly, professional. Dr. DeSai is well respected in the community and quickly diagnosed the possible problem which as confirmed by ultrasound all in the same day. I am very pleased with the healthcare provided to me.

From walking in the door until I met with Dr. Desai, warmth and professionalism were apparent. Dr. Desai carefully explained my medical issues and my treatment options. He was patient as I asked a few questions and then made my choice of treatment. He preformed surgery on my two years ago with excellent results. I would highly recommend Dr. Desai.

Everything about my appointment with Dr. Desai was amazing. I was able to get an appointment at 8:25 am and I was out by 9:30 with a diagnosis of gout in my wrist after having bloodwork,an x-ray. and a steroid shot. His bedside manner was professional and sussinct. Already the wrist is responding and he had a faithful patient in case I need him again.

Have been seeing Dr. Desai for many years. He has resolved my carpal tunnel issues. Have been seeing him recently for trigger finger issues. He listens to my concerns and explains procedures and treatments clearly. Because he spends time with his patients and doing treatments tends to get behind on schedule appointment times well worth the wait.
