Still waiting to see doctor. Has been a full hour. Other patients coming in after me are being admitted. When i approached desk staff to find out why, they blew me off. No apology and am still waiting.

I have been a patient before 2000 and I just had my second pacemaker installed by Dr DeSai. I consider myself fortunate to have found this doctor. He is always completely thorough and employs his knowledge as an internal medicine doctor in addition to his primary function as a cardiologist. He spotted my sleep apnea and got an appointment for future testing and treatment, even though this was not his area of responsibility. Dr DeSai is a strong patient advocate and superb physician.

My friend highly recommended Dr. Desai. When I asked my primary care doctor about him, she totally agreed. He is very thorough, he followed up every time to make sure things were as they were supposed to be. He is obviously caring and a dedicated doctor wanting the best for his patients. He spends as much time as needed to talk and answer questions. I can't say enough good things about him. I didn't need unnecessary appointments (which other doctors have required). Dr D is awesome!!
