I met with a team of people, one at a time. There were sometimes very long wait times between these team members.

I feel in GOOD hands with this team. Team, now that's a vastly overused word these days. But not with this group at all. Very well coordinated.

I have always felt well taken care of with any questions answered right away. I REALLY LIKE MYCHART and how quickly it is populated with information and test results. I know how backed up all medical providers are due to the COVID interferance. You people are doing an awesome job making me feel cared for even if I do have to wait to be scheduled for the next step in my journey. THANK YOU!

Dr. Desai was very informative. This was our first visit with him. There is more to find out about my condition so this was an informational meeting. I was able to get an appointment within two weeks so that is fairly quick for a specialist visit. The only downside was the 35 minute wait in the exam room to see him .

This was my first visit to Dr. A. Desai, and I couldn't be more pleased with his professionalism, as well as his warmth. He explained clearly what is involved in the Watchman procedure and answered questions from my son and me with knowledge and grace. He is an exceptional person in terms of medical knowledge and interpersonal skills! I'm very grateful to be associated with him as one of his patients.

Bad valet parking - to wheel chair at parking waiting kept appointment time. Doctor had no new information specific to patient. He could not say if procedure was possible. The whole appointment was a waste of time. It is not easy for an [age removed] year old to go out of town for a doctor's appointment. The whole visit should, and could have been done on Zoom. Waste of time for all involved.
