"Can't say enough good things about Dr. Desai or his staff."

It is so easy for patients to write complaints, but I want to take the opportunity to commend Dr. Desai for the extreme care he has given to myself and especially my wife in the last few years.  My wife is bedridden and every month he comes to my home to change her catheter and check her over without fail. Very courteous and does not rush his visit when he comes, but the opposite he not only is courteous, but he takes whatever time it takes to satisfy her needs.

Not only does he care for her, but knowing that I have no one to watch her when I am gone from our home he schedules my office visits so that I have absolutely no waiting time when I come in for my routine visits.  I’m in and out in a flash making sure that everything required in the visit is taken care of.  He also asks about my wife on those office visits showing a real concern for both of us.  Reminds me of the good ole country doctors you read about or see on TV from back in the good old days before money became more important to a person than everything else.  Can’t say enough good things about Dr. Desai or his staff.

"Our lives and health are so much better because of him."

About 10 years ago, I found Dr. Desai. I was very sick mentally and my body was just going downhill. From the first visit with Dr. Desai, I could tell he cared and he listened. Believe me, I was a mess. He took the time and care to treat me. Ten years later I still go to him and so does my husband. Our lives and health are so much better because of him. We love Dr. Desai. Thank you from Joe and Anna!
