Dr. Desai has helped me tremendously with my foot. I swear I wouldn't be walking if it weren't for her. She's incredible. And the staff here are all professional, polite and caring - it's very welcoming. The office in Hicksville has individual rooms for each patient so I enjoy the privacy. I highly recommend her to everyone.
