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.

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!

Dr. Desai is wonderful. She put me at ease when completing my retina exam, which I might add is not very pleasant. Her kind and gentle demeanor made the process much more comfortable.

The care given by NJ Retina's staff and Dr. Lekha Desai has been excellent. Dr. Lekha performed surgical repair of a detached retina (left eye) on Labor Day (2021). My postsurgical follow-up visits (with one exception, when she was on maternity leave) have been with her. The waiting time has consistently been under five minutes. The support staff is efficient and friendly. I like Dr. Desai very much. Her examinations of both eyes appear to be thorough. Dr. Desai answers all of my questions clearly. I believe that I am in good hands!

Dr. Desai repaired my son’s torn retina. She was thorough and explained all of our options so that we could make the most informed decision. I am confident that if my son needs further surgeries that Dr. Desai has the skill and empathy to care for any situation that arises.

Dr. Desai made me feel comfortable as soon as I met her. I'm still recovering from the surgery, but she was courteous and knowledgeable. Thank you, Dr. Desai for making this process/experience more bearable for me!
