We were very blessed to have found doctor Desai. My daughter was having extreme pain in her foot for months, her foot started deforming and she couldn't walk well. After seen different doctors, no one was able to understand what was wrong with her foot. So finally we were referred to Children's Hospital and the orthopedics there ordered an MRI that revealed an unusual fracture and injured ligaments that the orthopedics at Children's have never treated. The doctor at Children referred me to doctor Desai who is an expert on treating those types of injuries. My daughter had surgery the following week and she recovered well and she is finally back doing every type of activity without any more pain. Her foot looks beautiful with minor visible scars. I recommend doctor Desai, he saved my daughter's foot.

John larson – Jan 07, 2020
We waited two hours for the doctor to show up. We were ushered to the exam room and waited again. When he arrived, he glanced quickly at my xray and told me that a was a complainer. Bigger broken bones were much worse. And then he talked about himself for 15 minutes. All the while, he never made eye contact with me (the patient) but talked to my husband. I would never refer anyone to see this man.

My son is a collegiate football player and had a Jones fracture about 5 months ago., and Dr.Desai performed surgery to place a screw across the fracture. He was always attentive and wanted to get my son back to sports as soon as possible. At 5 months, he is back to full activity! We are very appreciative of Dr.Desai. We highly recommend him to all our friends and anyone else that will listen!

Dr. Desai, has been a blessing to me. I had a foot surgery that didn't go very well in Alabama. I searched all over the U.S. to find a doctor that could possibly help me to get my foot back to normal. When I first met Dr. Desai I was literally walking on the edge of my left foot. He explained the risks and benefits of surgery. He performed surgery, and did a great job. He was understanding, he has a great bedside manner. HE IS THE BEST ORTHOPEDIC DOCTOR!!!!!

Caddo Mills, TX – May 30, 2017
I made an appointment with Dr. Desai last week, confirmed that he accepted my Humana PPO plan, dutifully completed the new patient forms, responded to the text message reminder, and arrived on time this morning only to be told that in the time since I made my appointment he no longer accepts my insurance. A phone call would have been nice. This delays treatment of my painful hardware condition while I search for a new physician and wait for a new appointment. This is no way to treat people.

Took the time to explain the procedure and the rehab process. The entire process was just as he explained. The pain after surgery was minimal. I have to have my other foot done and I can already tell my quality of lfe will go way up!
