The entire staff at n j retina associates was curious and competent. Doctor Desai Performed a detailed examination of both retinas, especially the specific areas repaired over twenty years ago, and said that everything seemed to be still intact and that there was no reason to be immediately concerned.

Dr. Desai is very caring and takes the time to listen to her patients. She understands that her patients are nervous when there for injections, or for what their eye status might be in the future.

I had a retinal detachment present itself recently on a Saturday. Dr. Desai was on call at the Wayne facility. She was the only doctor on call with a great many patients waiting to be seen. Took me nearly 3 hours to see her but she was so professional and thorough. She made the diagnosis and set me up for the next day (Sunday) at Clara Mas despite the fact that she had a surgery to complete later that day at 2 pm. Dr. Desai provided a prescription for medical clearance (ekg, blood work, dilating drops) and scheduled the surgery. On Sunday she performed the surgery in a really professional fashion. I had no issues and saw her the next day (Monday) for a follow up exam. All things appeared to be set in place for proper healing. Thanks to her I have hope for a speedy recovery. Thank you so much!

I've going to NJ Retina for years. Dr. Desai has always been informative when it comes to my condition. She tells me what she's doing when performing procedures on my eyes during my visit and she addresses any concerns I may have.

Oct 14, 2022
I needed an emergency consultation after I began seeing flashes of light. NJRetina got me in for an appointment very quickly. I was impressed with Dr Desai's attentiveness, how she listened closely to what I had to say, and how she responded to my concerns and questions. She has a warm demeanor and did not rush the appointment. Thank you, Dr Desai!
