Ratings for Dr. Parimal C. Desai
I have been seeing Dr. Desai for a long time, but have to say the last few times I have been VERY dissapointed. I will start by saying he is a very good and nice man and very smart. Now being a nurse myself for many years and worked in both the hospital and as supervisor of a family practice, there are few things I hvae issues with. First I came to see him very sick and was taken back to a room by the receptionist. Second I waited in the room for an hour and nobody let me know what was going on or apologized. Third and most shocking was that NOT ONE BASIC VITAL SIGN was taken from me. Not a blood pressure, temperature(when I got home my temp was 101.5) or pulse rate. I know he is a very smart man, but I don't think any patient that is sick should not have those basic vital signs taken, ecspecially after waiting for an hour.
Have been a patient of his for over 10 years. Very happy with his service. He is personable, listens to the patient, and is very knowlegeabale and helpful. Establishing himself in his own office was a major plus! Very highly recommend Dr. Desai!
I liked Dr. Desai a lot better when he was a part of PWFM. Now that he has opened his own practice he is not so much desirable. At one of my visits I had to get blood drawn. His nurse, who is not very friendly, came in and seemed to not have things in order for it. This made me question her ability and I asked her where she trained. I was surprised to learn she has had no official training, only OTJ. The entire appointment seemed rushed and Dr. Desai wasn't as attentive as I remembered him being. I've made the decision to stick with the family practice that he branched out of for this reason.
Dr. Desai is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He takes the time to sit down and listen to you. He is extremely knowledgeable and compasionate. If you have to go to a specialist, he also recommends the best specialists around. His office staff at the Manassas office is OK, but the Gainesville office is right on top of things. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Desai.
