There are not enough stars on this rating system for Dr. Desai, he is the kindest most caring doctor I have ever met. My brother came in from out of state and had some major foot issues. Dr. Desai was there for him and the family explaining everything from the E.R. through surgery and the follow up visits. Our family was blessed to have Dr. Desai assigned to my Brother, whenever I drive by the hospital I think about how much he helped our family.
