Verified Patient Reviews
She is very much forthcoming regarding treatment options and also explained what I can do besides getting treatment , like taking different diet food to reduce knee and leg pain.
She had suggestions that the insurance that we had can buy more worth services at other providers who are in network.
She was amazing. She quickly diagnosed the issue with me and was able to provide immediate care for the issue in house while recommending clear next steps! I owe her a huge thanks because I was in a tremendous amount of pain when I came into the office.
Doctor seemed little unfocused and hurried during the session. I felt the doctor's recommendation for surgical treatment was not appropriate and went else where to a physical therapist. Was able to correct the problem with physical therapist after 3 visits and no drugs or surgery required.
I felt very well taken care of. Dr Desai was very knowledgeable and put me at ease about my upcoming surgery. I would highly recommend her
Finally a doctor who truly understands her patients! She took her time and listened to me and truly understood my aches and pains. She treated me and I am feeling much better today. I will continue to go back to Dr. Desai as she is amazing.. I highly recommend Dr. Desai. Thank you !
Unlike other doctors who only takes few minutes to ask your symptom and takes ur money, Dr.Desai considers me as a friend, cares about my health. She is fast enough to be respond all the questions that I have for my pain and she is nice person.
Dr. Desai really listened to me and educated me on the various treatment plans. She is a fantastic doctor and her knowledge is far better than any one else I have been to. Dr. Desai knows her medicine and I am so happy I was recommended to her !!!
Dr. Desai is personable and kind. Definitely reccomend seeing her
Dr. Desai was very down to earth and easy to talk to and ask questions. She made the treatments super easy and was truly interested in my health and recovery.
Dr. Desai is an excellent pain management doctor. She is very knowledgeable and provided me with different treatment options for my chronic back pain which up to this point I wasn't aware of. I would highly recommend.
Dr.Desai helped with sever lower back pain and I felt much better after the visit she's a great doctor will definitely go back again
The doctor was patient with me and explained my different options of treatment and I left her office completely satisfied.
This was the most unprofessional, rushed experience I've had with a doctor. She hurried through the appointment, was not thorough in any of her explanations, and she was actually texting on her phone multiple times - even while I was explaining what the problem was. During the visit, I felt disrespected and undervalued as a patient. It was absolutely appalling.
Takes her time, listens to you, is honest and straight forward. Your comfort is key. Loved her.
Dr. Desai actually listened to what I had to say, and was most concerned with getting my pain taken care of and under control. Very refreshing! Thank you so much, Dr. Desai, for all your help!
Dr. Desai was very thorough, precise along with diagnosing my issues/concerns at first glance. She is a awesome doctor with a varied skill set, One Stop Shopping is the best way to describe her, truly awesome.
I don't feel like she listened at all, and then she advised quite invasive treatments without telling me how/why they would work or if I really needed them.
I had a good overall appointment with Dr. Desai. I think she has a good range of experience, but it's hard to tell because she is very social and spent a lot of time telling me personal anecdotes and stories about her own health.
Dr Desai misrepresented herself on ZocDoc as an in-network provider with my insurance, which I didn't find out until I was sitting in the exam room with her. I chose to go ahead with the appointment because: I had been in pain for several months; I was already there; I didn't know if I'd be charged for the appointment anyway. The entire office had a rather helter-skelter, disorganized feel to it once you get passed the reception area. Did not give off a professional feel at all. Dr Desai, likewise, didn't seem very well organized or professional. One of her first questions was if I was experiencing "neck pain or back pain." When it was neither, there was a reaction I can't describe, but didn't give me confidence in her ability. She used the sonogram to check for notable injury, without either warming the jelly used or warning me it would be cold. When that showed nothing, she turned me over to a Physical Therapist who was much more attentive, informative, and projected knowledge and confidence. Unfortunately, he doesn't take my insurance, either, so I will be seeking another PT elsewhere. While Dr Desai didn't do anything /wrong/ during my appointment, there have got to be better Physiatrists/ Physical Medicine doctors in the city. I'd recommend looking for one.
Dr Desai fit me in her busy schedule as a first time patient and went out of her way to make my appt time work. She took me in right away and was the first Dr EVER that actually listened and didn't make me feel like a 5 year old. She made me laugh as well. Dr is so easy to talk to and is very knowledgeable. So happy to be her patient!
Dr Desai was very polite, generous & listened. She was genuine. Most doctors are in a hurry & rush you; she takes her time & got it right.
I was very impressed with her methods. She is a thoughtful physician who explores alternative therapies and homeopathy first before jumping straight to steroids and talk of surgery. She also explained everything she did in great detail and clearly is very committed to her practice and her patients. You should definitely come talk to her first before seeing a surgeon!
