Never calls back, I mean NEVER. Her staff will give you the run around for days, they send prescriptions to the wrong place, did I mention no one ever calls back? Worst experience Ive ever had with a doctor before.
in Seattle, WA |
The worst Gynecologist I've ever seen. She had me do a lot of unnecessary test repeatedly. When I wanted to discuss about the report, she was always busy, never explained anything clearly. The staffs at her office is horrible. They say they will call back in 5 minutes but do not call in hours or days, in fact they will never return the call. Not recommended.
in Snoqualmie, WA |
I felt comfortable with Dr. Desai and her nurse. Both took plenty of time to explain what needed to be done (I had an in-office procedure), and they were kind and considerate during the procedure. Dr. Desai is professional in her demeanor and I felt confident in her knowledge and abilities to treat my problem.
Seattle, WA |
Bad experience with communication and how she explain the things.
in Seattle, WA |
she tried to help with my issues, but she seems too busy and preoccupied.
in Seattle, WA |
Worst experience with her.
in Addison, TX |
Worst Gynecologist I've ever seen. She did not listens patients and the management of her clinic is horrible.
