How was your experience with the doctor?Well I'm new to Houston and also have a medical background so finding a doctor who was actually informative and professional was the main priority. In all honesty everything about my doctor visit was more than exceptional. Front desk staff were team players with providing excellent customer service. The wait time wasn't long at all. The medical assistant showed competency and professionalism. When Dr Desai entered the room, he was very friendly and showed genuine concern with my medical history and present issues. His Was very informative and answered all of my Questions before sharing his plan of care treatment. Overall, I am elated that I kept my appointment even though I rescheduled 2x before and became lost because of my gps. Even the receptionist was great when I called while I was seemingly lost. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Svetang Desai even if it's a long commute.
