What People Say About Dr. Veena Desai, MD
Reply
I called for an urgent appointment on a Monday and was turned away. The office staff never offered an appointment with another doctor in the practice. Then I requested a call back from my pcp and she never called back. Its obvious the pt is just a number on a medical conveyor belt. Very little empathy or efficiency.

Dr, Desai is a caring, knowledgeable professional who genuinely cares about her patients and is easy to talk to. She works quickly, efficiently and is always sure to hear any of your concerns. Dr. Desai keeps a tight schedule, though some other aspects of the office may run behind, I know when she greets me at the door I will be in and out in an appropriate amount of time having all my needs met. I have been a patient of Dr. Desai's for almost a decade and I hope to stay with her for a lifetime
