All Worth It
Was very thorough with patient and answered all questions and also cleared up a lot of misunderstandings and confusion. He is great! Although the wait was lengthy. But the info we received was all worth it. Bed side manners are professional. I have no complaints.

Never Had Any Issues
Dr. Desai has been my urologist for over 9 years now. I have NEVER had any issues with him. I have had colonoscopy, Prostae mri with camera analysis of my prostate and bladder and regular visits. At times you wait longer than you like but it’s a doctor’s office. He takes his time explaining and has a great sense of humor
