Patient Comments (1)
sanford, nc |
Dr Desai was able to diagnose my SVT by having me wear a heart monitor for a month. He was very thorough. There were sometimes that I had a hard time understanding him. But he always clarified and made sure I understood. Wait times were reasonable. Staff is courteous, however every time I have been in the office they were very busy, and it appeared that the nurses seemed hurried. I caught some entry errors on my medical history. Nothing serious, and was corrected while I was sitting there
