Patient Comments (1)

Dr Desai is a total jerk . His arrogance is overwhelming . On my first visit I was left sitting in the examination room for 45 minutes before he showed up . There is not enough characters allowed for me to go over my complaint . His scheduling nurse Jen is just as bad . DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR...more
