Dr. Desai is not only very professional doctor but also a very compassionate person. Treat patients and staff very respectfully.

This visit was to discuss surgery on my right wrist for Carpal Tunnel. Dr. Desai did the surgery on my left wrist and thumb two years ago, which dramatically improved it. Now my right hand has become increasingly problematic. It's great to know exactly who to see about that. I'm looking forward to having the procedure done by Dr. Desai, who I have complete confidence in!

I was really impressed with my doctor and the way he spoke with me explaining my condition and commenting how well I had taken care of myself keeping things from getting worse

Dr. Desai is one of the best Doctors I have ever met. He is "warm", kind, friendly. I trusted him with my fears, and he came through like my "new" hero. I believe he is the Doctor most of us wish we had, but sometimes just cannot find... Great human being, GREAT doctor!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Desai! He is very professional, yet extremely personable. He carefully explained everything to me in layman's terms and I left his office feeling fortunate that he is my orthopedic physician.

Dr. Desai is a wonderful physician. He is genuinely concerned with his patients. He never seems rushed during your visit. He has very compasionate attitude towards his patients. He is a real asset to Vanderbilt Medical Center.
