(Select your rating)
Dr. Desai an amazing cardiologist he’s considered the best by multiple other cardiologist in town that I saw prior to him. Give my complicated cardiac condition I went down to Cedars to obtain an opinion they suggested that I follow up in the future with Dr. Desai in Bakersfield. However I was not a Kaiser patient and reluctantly I switched over to Kaiser and since then I’ve been extremely impressed with his skills and level of knowledge.
