My husband had a colonoscopy and Dr. Desai was very attentive and explained everything and answered all of our questions thoroughly. While in recovery, he mentioned a discolored area on my husband's arm and recommended he see a Dermatologist. He was diagnosed with Melanoma (cancer). Because of Dr. Desai, there is a possibility that my husband may have a chance to fight it. Our entire family appreciates so much his caring about my husband's health!

Dr. Desai treated my father who is 85 and had multiple complications. During his last hospital stay he had several surgeries, two of which were done by Dr. Desai. He was extremely patient and thoughtful to myself and my father. Never rushed us and took time to explain everything thourougly and patiently answered all questions. He was always prompt and thourough. He leaves no stone unturned in diagnosing issues. GREAT DOC

I had a 10:30 appointment. Arriving at 10:26, I was asked to fill out forms that weren't available online. The receptionist then said 'they would call me when ready'. I asked if they were running on time and she said 'he's not in the office yet and won't be for another 40 minutes.' So, she was going to let me sit there for 40 minutes without saying a word to me about the doctor's known tardiness. No phone call or text message that could have prevented the wasted trip. Nothing.

Dr Desai and his staff treated me with respect and professionalism. The procedure was very fast and totally out of my past experiences. It did take over a month to hear results if UGI and camera ingestion. I will definitely recommend family and friends to see him. He found what doctors in south Texas have been treating piecemeal in one procedure.
