I was sent to Dr. Desai post finger surgery. I had suffered a serious infection. The surgeon stated that he doubted that the finger could be saved; however, he felt that it deserved a chance. He referred me to Dr. Desai for treatment. With his great knowledge and skill, Dr. Desai was able to save my finger! I will be eternally grateful to him!

Office staff is the worst, they don’t return calls. I asked to speak to the office manager twice and was denied. They kept me from making an appointment, I’m handicapped and disabled. They told me that he couldn’t handle a foot infection (go figure) he’s an infectious disease doctor?

Dr Desai and his staff treated me extraordinarily well! They paid so close attention to me as a person that I went in for an IV treatment one day and the nurse noticed I just wasn’t myself. She started asking me more questions and finally checked my pulse. She advised me to go to the hospital, which I did. I was in AFIB. Not life threatening, but definitely needed to be treated. His staff kept up with me during that short stay and ensured I stayed on course for my treatments. Great Folks!

Dr. Desai did an excellent job! I highly recommend him. After visiting various doctors & being placed on wrong antibiotics, he was able to diagnose my condition quickly & was able to treat it for good.

Dr. Desai didn't like my negative review of him or HCID on Facebook. We were met with a 30 day end of treatment form and told to find a new doctor. Instead of trying to remedy the problems and improve patient care it's easier for them to dismiss the patient. We would have gladly found a new doctor if HCID hadn't held my husband's records and prescription hostage instead of helping him get treatment. Dr. Desai, if you want 5 star reviews then you and HCID should only give patients 5 star care!

I saw Dr. Desai while I was at St Luke's Hospital in The Woodlands, I was there for 7 days and he examined and communicated with me daily. He was very compassionate and concerned about my health. He treated my infection very aggressively when other doctors acted very uncaring. I would recommend him to any family member and friends.
