Dr Desai is wonderful and am very pleased with the care I have received. He introduced me to his new nurse practitioner and told me she would be seeing me for wellness visits. I told the doctor that I would not see the nurse practitioner I specifically chose Dr Desai because he was male. I'm sure she is qualified but at almost 65 years old I am set in my ways and the doctor said that it's not a problem I would see him only.
