  • Dr Desai is the best. I am in good hands with this doctor.
    Dr Desai is an excellent doctor and always had first class health care under his supervision. He completed two ablation procedures on me in the last 10 years and pleased with the outcomes.
    Everything is outstanding except trying to make my appointment. I guess you were having a new phone system installed and it was very difficult to make the appointment. Hopefully all of that has been resolved by now.
    Dr Desai is excellent.
    fantastic treated me like a special patient!!
