Dr. Desai is top notch. Would like some continuity of providers in office visits as Dr. Desai does the procedures and different PAs or NPs perform the actual exams. Sometimes they -PAs, NP seem to be somewhat hurried which results in a less than pleasant exam, Office staff is 5 star. All-in-all I recommend.

I want to say 1 thing that my husband has been going to your office for 6 years and the PA system sucks cause I ran out of my pills for 1 day and they fire me from your office and they have gave me an drug test ever other month and that's not normal. THE people in the waiting room said all they want is give you shots and something that doesn't help my pain. All I can say is this office sucks and there's a lot of people that they don't like the way y'all treat people I know of about 10 people tha

Desai bought Cary Pain Center Wasn't notified until my app. They knew about the buyout when I came in Aug. I could have gotten the insurance papers during that time. I drove 60-mile round trip for nothing. His office asst, a short, chubby blonde, eavesdropped on my phone call to GP and told me to go for being 'disrespectful' to her. Dr. Feng, my doc, came out and stopped her. She waited at my next appt and wouldn't let me. Staff is incompetent, immature, ldishonest, unethical. Desai does 0
