What People Say About Dr. Shaun Desai, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Desai is awesome. Another trusted physician referred me to Dr. Desai for some reconstructive work on my face. From the moment I walked into his office, I felt confident I had come to the right place. Dr. Desai is not only an exceptional surgeon, but he's also a nice person. He saw me on time, answered all of my questions and didn't rush me out of the office. I found the nursing staff to be very professional too. I'm very happy with my results and would recommend Dr. Desai to family.

Dr. Desai repaired my deviated septum and straightened out the bridge of my nose. He was extremely skilled, professional, warm and reassuring. I was impressed with the details he remembered about my life every visit. I would recommend him to anyone.

My daughter Aya is one of his patients. Dr. Desai and his lovely Clinic Coordinator Sophie are the best. The way they communicated with us pre and post surgery is amazing. He did an excellent job and the surgery was a successes. He was so nice and pleasant in his approach and explanation to my daughter about the surgery. Thank you for a great job. Nasser and Aya K.

I have limited space, so I have to keep this short. My experience with Dr. Desai and his team was absolutely top notch. I went in for a septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and spreader grafts. Here, I am nine days later breathing SIGNIFICANTLY better than I ever have in my life. This has been a life changing experience for me, and this was in large part to the experience I had with the Dr. Desai. He was patient, empathetic, knowledgeable, and most importantly skilled!

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!
