I very much like Dr. Desai. I only see him once a year, and he's always very thorough with me. When I first started seeing him, the wait times were longer. However, they have become much better.

all phases of my visit was very professional. Dr Desai's evaluation and recommendations were explained in detail so I could make an informed decision about any treatment.

Dr. Desai always listens and ask about any issues I may be experiencing and never tries to make me accept a procedure that I am not comfortable with or do not agree to.

I count myself extremely fortunate to be under the care of Dr. Desai. From the moment my vision problem (vitreomacular traction) emerged (October 2019), Dr. Desai's calm demeanor coupled with his experience and knowledge inspired confidence. He has a conservative approach, which set well with me. He is serious and succinct. Every examination was done conscientiously and thoroughly. He never rushed. This may make for longer wait times, but for me, the level of care that he shows his patients justifies the waiting room sit. He made no promises but stuck to statistics when I probed for what would happen with my eye. He took my case one step at a time. He did not get ahead of what was going on. I am an optimistic person and always felt that my vitreous would eventually detach completely and normally. Dr. Desai never promised that would happen. It didn’t. I ended up with a macular hole. Dr. Desai performed my vitrectomy. He was intensely focused during the surgery. I followed his instructions and ended up with a superb outcome: 20/20 vision with an insignificant amount of distortion. I am thankful that he is my doctor. He is a humble man: when I credit him with my great outcome, he deflects the praise back to me saying I am a good healer. I am extremely grateful to this wonderful doctor. I trust Dr. Desai explicitly and recommend him with full confidence.

Great job

I have been followed by Dr Desai for about 20 years now and he is as thorough as one need with retinal issues. He does not do anything simply to have more Billings, but he is quite good when a problem requires some quick attention with some laser surgery
