Very rude and unpleasant. I felt rushed. He made me feel like I was an inconvenience to him, and he's a doctor...

After initially having issues with getting the appointment on ZocDoc, my wife both arrived at our appointement ontime to find out the doctors office didn't have us scheduled for an appointment today but instead a week from today. Fortunatelywe had the email confirmations from ZocDoc and they made room for us in today's schedule, but it was still frustrating. NOt clear if this was a problem on the ZocDoc side or the doctor's side...

The doctor is obviously very professional and knowledgeable, and the appointment went quickly. However, I felt rushed as he didn't spend much time with me nor asked any questions. In addition, there was a third person in the room, other thanthe dr. and a nurse (intern/resident/employee trainee?), and the dr. did not ask my permission to have this person observe the exam (given that i was nearly naked, I felt uncomfortable).

My visit was very good. I have been searching for a good dermatologist for my daughter who has eczema. Dr. Desai was thorough and explained everything where we could understand. I have been really worried about her skin but after visitingDr. Desai I am no longer worried and at my mind is at ease. He was very patient and answered all of our questions. And we had a lot! I would highly recommend Dr. Desai.

He asked where we were concerned about our son's skin, and only checked that area. I assumed since this was a new patient seeing a dermatologist for the first time, that he would have conducted a more comprehensive examination for anyconcerning areas (especially since our son is a teenager and there are body parts we no longer see and our family has a history of multiple cancers).
