I arrived about 30 mins before my appointment, checked in, filled out some paperwork (I was a new patient), turned the forms back in, and as soon as I was done my name was called. I was pretty nervous walking intothis doctors appointment (only because I haven't seen a doctor for a while) but as soon as Dr. Desai came in she made me feel at ease. She was very informative and went over everything to make sure I understood what I needed to. She was very kind and made me feel comfortable the entire time. I chose Dr. Desai because of all the great reviews I read on here, and I'm happy to say I made the right choice.
