Very cold and doesn't welcome questions. Feels like I put a coin in a doctor machine and got a 30-second response.

In February had a arm fracture and dislocation of the wrist. Dr Desai perform the surgery to repair the damage. He is kind and professional with a fantastic team around him. Followed by a daily personal check up e mail. It is the best medical care I could ever expected
