Dr. Desai was awesome-- he spent a lot of time with me, explained all my options (for rhinoplasty), and made himself available to answer any questions/concerns. Surgery went off without a hitch, recovery was quick, and the result was amazing. Very happy I found him!

Wonderful doctor that excels in his specialty, but he is also a kind, attentive doctor. He made me feel like a very valued patient, and had as much time as I needed to ask questions. I highly recommend Dr. Desai!
