Dr. Vinay Desai is providing an excellent care of my complex age retina problem. He's skillful and knowledgeable professional, who makes time accurate decisions and general observations of the other parts of my eye, including his referral to cataract surgery. We appreciate his service and highly recommend Dr. Desai.

Love the new office. My wait time was much better than my last visit. The check in and check out process was also much improved.

Everything went smoothly. No delays..

Overall, the waiting is usually the only real negative. For this visit, the waits in the reception area and the “cave” were not that bad but the wait in the treatment room for the doctor ran long. The young male tech that handled the first two stages was the best I have experienced. Unfortunately, I can’t remember his name, but he very clearly explained the process.

Dr. Desai is always very focused on looking for details and considering everything, and is always very kind. Having retina issues is worrying, and I feel very lucky to have been under Dr. Desai's care for so many years.

Sep 20, 2019
Dr.Desai is very calm and collective.He is very thorough at what he does since he has been treating my eye issues.Some one wanted me to switch to another Retina Doctor and I told them no,I prefer to continue with Dr.Desai for he is the best and I relate to him better because of his countenance.

Dr. Desai is an excellent retinal specialist I've been seeing for more than ten years. I recommend him to everyone in search of an excellent, thorough and humane specialist.

All of my visits with Dr. Desai have been outstanding. I am very grateful for his help with my emergency RT/RD and wish to thank him, Dr. Vu, and the entire team in the office for everything they have done for me over the last few weeks.

Sep 18, 2019

Dr. Desai is an excellent physician. Very patient and a gifted retinal specialist He works very hard and as efficiently as possible. The only negative is the long wait to see him on the day of the appointment. I do not blame him for that. That is an issue for those who book the appointments. I highly recommend Dr. Desai.

Everything was perfect. Great doctor, great staff. A wonderful lady performed the tests with dye in my arm. Keep up the good work. Dr. Desai is the best!!!!

Sep 12, 2019
todays visit was great. I have been his patient for about 3 years and and look forward to each new visit.I ofcourse look forward to the FDA approving a better class of drugs to treat wet macula.

Sep 12, 2019
The only negative about the visit was the waiting. It was not all related to drug effects. But, staff was friendly; check in and check out was efficient. Dr. Desai was no nonsense. Helpful on answering questions and proficient in executing the procedure( a shot in the eye; which seems to be wiki g). Thank God, because loosing eyesight due to MD is not a pleasant thought. Friends say I should go to John’s Hopkins in Baltimore for my treatment/ shots. Why?

Sep 12, 2019
Dr Desai has treated me for 10 years, after I experienced a detached retina. At that time, I was overseas, needed to return for care. He has restored my vision and taken very professional, excellent care of my eyes since. Treated well by support staff, too.

Jul 18, 2019
Dr. Desai took time to explain exam information and outlook.

Jul 18, 2019
Office staff is great, Dr Desai is knowledgeable. Wait times are sometimes long, but that is par for the course for retinal specialists, because they have to see patients on an emergency basis. I was once one of those emergencies, so I don't mind the wait when I'm not.
