On November 11, 2015, Dr. Desai performed an emergency surgery for a pseudo aneurysm of my aorta. He successfully put in a TEVAR. I have no complaints with Dr. Desai or his nurse practitioner yet his receptionist has no manners on the phone. After the surgery, I had to have the temporary disability papers filled out by the physician which caused my stress and discomfort. I would have been better off going back to work after the surgery instead of allowing my heart to recover as dealing with the receptionist is not worth having a knowledgeable, friendly, professional, competent cardiac surgeon as the office staff is who you deal with after the procedure.
