Gave me a thorough explanation of my current situation and results of my scan. Discussed upcoming treatments and potentially other options.

Dr. Desai provides me the best care I could ever hope for. She thoroughly knows my medical history at each visit and is genuinely interested in my well being. I feel totally comfortable with Dr. Desai. She is saving/extending my life for which I am deeply grateful.

I had a great experience because I had received excellent care from Dr. Desai. She was my health advocate and my champion for care. I really appreciate all the hard work that she did and continues to do on my behalf.

Very satisfied and happy with the doctor.

This was my first visit with Dr. Desai and she gave me far more time than I expected staying with me until all of my questions were answered and a plan of treatment was clear. It is important to me that my radiology and medical oncology treatments are coordinated and Dr. Desai has given me great confidence that I'm in the best medical hands.

first meeting with this Doctor (last one left) so I barely know this person - we have now spent about 15 minutes together. I anticipate a good relationship as we work together.

Both Dr. Desai and Dr. [name redacted] double covered some details which was extremely important as we covered a great amount of information and going over it a second time to be sure I had grasped it was very much appreciated and led to other questions and details I had not had initially.

I was overwhelmed by the care attention and time Dr.Desai showed me my wife and good friend. She spent hours with us. walking us through my complicated cancer options.. Wow.. Just wow!!

I feel I'm very fortunate to have my provider. Cancer was not what I was expecting to have to deal with at my age. I'm seeing a number of doctors at UCSF and TFH. Everyone is treating me very well. My provider has taken the time to bring all of these terms and diagnoses down to my level of understanding. She tells me everything in plain English (what a concept). I have a positive attitude and I intend to beat this and I look forward to my continued positive progress and seeing my provider in July.

Dr. Desai was very well-prepared for my case and explained my situation and her proposed action plan very clearly. Dr. Desai listened well. I have total confidence in Dr. Desai and feel fortunate that Dr. [name redacted] referred me to her. Thank you!

Dr Desai is very knowledgeable. Perhaps speaking a bit slower would help since she is covering a wide range of information and some of it in medical terms beyond our knowledge.

This was my first meeting with Dr. Desai. Previously I was a patient of Dr. [name redacted]. Dr. Desai has a great positive attitude and I look forward to being her patient.
