Completely missed a Basal Cell Carcinoma that was ultimately easily diagnosed by a first year resident simply by an examination (although, of course, a biopsy -- punch, not scrape to save time...) Confirmed this. A year of creams and prescriptions and a general dismissal of my comcerns expressed to him got me everything under the sun, EXCEPT AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS.

Dr. Desai is extremely knowledgeable and thorough with his checks and diagnosis. He prescribed a very effective treatment and my symptoms have significantly been reduced. I traveled from overseas for 2 visits with Dr. Desai as he was highly recommended by the a member of the european board of dermatologists. He definitely went the extra mile to ensure the treatment was available in my home country as well. Highly recommended!!
