Dr Desai was probably the nicest doctor I've ever encountered! She was helpful, knowledgeable, empathetic,professional, personable. She treated my daughter like she was her own. She explained everything about my daughter's exercise induced asthma and future considerations as she heads off to college. She also gave my daughter a full allergy testing to help further pinpoint the sinus problems my daughter has had over the past few months. All in all, a very thorough appointment with a very wonderful doctor.

Dr. Desai is the best physician i have ever gone to. Having worked in the medical field for over 20 years, she had the most compassion, patience, knowledge and wonderful, warm personality that I have ever encountered in a physician. She has great ideas especially if one cannot tolerate conventional ways of treatment and that is a big plus! Office staff also very nice and friendly. A+++ Thank you so much.
