Dr. Desai is a phenomenal physical therapist. I saw her two years ago and she made a tremendous difference in my life. I knew I had to come back to her this time around as well. My back condition resurfaced andI was recommended to do physical therapy once more. She and her team are such a pleasure to be around. She has great bedside manner and i am always seen on time. Her offices are clean and run very well. She is a caring and professional doctor and will never make you feel uncomfortable to be there. I highly recommend her!

This was my first PT appointment and she made me feel so comfortable! The office is professional and efficient but also warm and friendly! Dr. Sheetal is thorough and understood my concerns and addressed my goals for minimizing my pain andany future deterioration. I am now excited to strengthen and heal my body versus avoid the issues. Overall excellent first experience.

It was my first time at PT ever and I was extremely nervous about finding a good doctor. I found Dr. Desai On ZocDoc, she had tons of good reviews and also had convenient hours = I made an appointment immediately!When I walked in I was able to see how she interacts with her other patients effortlessly and I was instantly relieved, the reviews were true and my appointment couldn’t have been better. Dr. Desai was very personable and genuine. She was so easy to talk to and quick to answer any question I asked. Her staff was lovely and very helpful. I look forward to my next session with her.

Having a complex case of back pain and neck pain, I came to see Deeshai to if I could address the root cause of my pain. . However,all she did was throw on some electrodes on my back and give amassage and told me to come in next time. She wouldn't give me any exercises I could do at home until I specifically came in again. Like really? You could just give me a few so I can get the fastest heal on my neck. Like I can literally just youtube them. I wouldn't have minded too much if she had other patients to see, but there was no one even there besides me. She is probably fine if you don't have a lot of problems, but would not recommend.

There was a blizzard in my area that interfered with my ability to get to my appointment anywhere close to on time. They kept a spot open for me all day, and every time I called back to postpone, they were,as always, gracious and understanding. This epitomizes the treatment you will receive from this practice.

Dr Desai is truly a blessing! I had previously had terrible experience with a prior doctor and was very nervous my first time at her office. She was polite, listened to me and was able to establish an effective treatment planfor me. I have had amazing progress with my condition. Her staff is very polite and knowledgeable as well. I highly recommend her, you will be treated like a human being that matters. I don't know what I would have done without her, absolutely one of the best !

Dr. Desai I and her team were extremely helpful with my shoulder injury. At my first appointment she started the procedure right after I said what's wrong with it. I especially admire how fast and productive her work is. Waiting timeis less than 30 second. If you are looking for knowledgeable and very punctual Doctor, Dr. Desai will be definitely the one.

I had a car accident back in 2012. Since than I am getting therapy. In last 3 years I went to many places for physical therapy but wasn't happy. I met with Dr. Sheetal Desai three months ago. She is thebest therapist I have ever seen. She takes care of her patients so well. Her employees are best as well. I recommended my aunt and some of my friends to see Dr. Sheetal Desai. They are all happy too. If you need physical therapy, just meet with her once. I am sure after met with her, you will never think of seeing any other therapists. May God bless you and Thank you so much Dr. Sheetal.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Desai so I thought I'd post an update. I'm still recovering from surgery and continue to have trouble walking when I overdo it. Thankfully Dr. Desai and her assistants always make me comfortableand feel so much better before I leave. I never get worried or nervous that I'm going to suffer a setback because they are checking up on me the entire time I'm there to make sure I'm doing what I'm suppose to and doing it correctly, which I can tell you from past experience is very rare. It's the best part of my day -- seriously, it's peaceful and calming -- almost zen-like. I have a few more weeks of therapy to go, but I'm confident that Dr. Desai is doing everything possible to get my foot back to normal. And, it's an added bonus that she's extremely personable and everyone there is very nice to you.

Dr. Sheetal Desai is a lifesaver! I started seeing her for issues I was having with plantar fasciitis, and she helped me tremendously. Then, unlucky me, I tore my Achilles tendon in that same foot, so my surgeon decided to repairmy Achilles tendon, plantar fasciitis and heel spurs ALL AT ONCE. The recovery from that surgery was brutal, but thanks to Dr. Desai and her team, my foot is doing so much better. In fact, I no longer need a cane - that's huge considering I spent 3 weeks in a wheelchair. I've been to other places and they always put you in these large rooms and everything feels rushed, and then you wait forever to get time with the actual physical therapist. Here, it's very low key with private rooms and you get top notch care and attention from Dr. Desai. For today's visit, I arrived super early and expected to wait, but I didn't sit for more than 5 minutes and they took me in. I'm actually afraid to tell everyone about this place because I don't want it to get too busy -- but I have to because Dr. Desai is wonderful and this place is a gem. And her staff are always respectful and courteous. It's a refreshing change from what I've experienced in the past. If I could give more than 5 stars, I'd do it!

I feel as this "Doctor" does not take my case seriously. My first appointment with her was terrible all she did was crack jokes and instead of talking to ME (the patient) she was talking to my fience, any questions Iasked she would answer them talking to him. She really didn't listen to my concerns. She hooked me up to a machine and gave me a massage which lasted JUST under 45 min. THEN my second appointment I had receive the SAME treatment, only my appointment was MUCH shorter which it only lasted 25 min., so I asked about actual physical therapy and was told I would be doing it for my NEXT appointment. So I gave it one last shot, I was early for my appointment that she did not even show up for and AGAIN only hooked up to a machine and was not addressed professionally. On my way out of the office she walked in and did not even acknowledge me. I also did not get an apology for HER being late. OVERALL very far from happy with this doctor, I don't recommend her to anyone nor will I be going back to her ever again (even my fience does not want me going to her).

The staff were professional and courteous, especially the dr. I am recovering from multiple injuries incurred a long time ago, my recovery complicated by illness. Rather than address my injuries she addressed me, the whole person. She listenedto my questions, including those that arose as she explained my treatment plan, and made sure I understood that plan and what is required of me to ensure its success. I am a participant in creating the plan, rather than just being along for the ride, with all my concerns considered and confident that those yet to arise will be handled equally as well. I left the office finally optimistic about a full recovery.
