What People Say About Dr. Shaunak Desai, MD

I fell walking my 2 small dogs by tripping on a piece of raised sidewalk in Huntington Beach. I have been a patient of Dr Desai for 6 years and have noticed once in awhile he may appear cold and not caring. In reality he is kind but because he works for a corporate group they schedule him to see a certain amount of patients each day and that causes stress on him to meet that quota! Please note Medical Care is much different than 20 years ago. He has treated me for broken wrist, Dupretrans,

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