Ratings for Dr. Navtika R. Desai
I had my first visit with her after finding out a had a thyroid problem from my physician. Seeing her was a waste of time and money. She did nothing for me and didn't want to listen to what I had to say. She just said my problem is from weight gain and to see a nutritionist. I do not like her at all. She has a rude tone and when I told her I was confused she would say "that's not what I'm asking you". I do not reccomend her to anybody. She is a total waste of your time and money.
She makes you wait and then rushes through your appointment. Talked so fast about side effects of new meds that my head was spinning. She's the only doctor that charged me up front instead of submitting to insurance then billing me. I was surprised to have to put out $160 my first visit. They automatically send prescriptions for lab work to Quest. My insurance requires me to use LabCorp. Had to call 3 times before they actually sent the script over. I have 1 more appointment with Dr. Desai but already made an appointment with another endo
She's a horrible 'doctor' (she's a DO not an MD). Terrible. I'm mad I saw her for as long as I did- I kept thinking, maybe she's right...maybe I'll give her another chance." bad idea. She has left me hanging without refilling my (necessary, daily) prescription a number of times, and then the office won't return my calls when I leave urgent messages. She contradicted something my general doctor said, so I checked with another doctor and my gyno and they both confirmed that she is completely wrong (she recommended a pelvic ultrasound b/c I don't get my period b/c I'm on the pill-- this is completely normal (according to the 3 other docs), but this doc keeps telling me it's not and that I need all these invasive tests). Stay away!!!
First, I had to was 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment. Then when I finally met her she had an attitude while reviewing my past labs basically telling me I was fine even though I had been diagnosed with a condition by another doctor. So basically I wasn't 45 minutes in the waiting room and was yelled at for the next ten minutes in the examining room. I have never been so poorly treated by a doctor.
I have nodules in my thyroid. Dr. Desai took biopsies and I waited a week for the results. I went to another dr. for second opinion and second biopsy. Second Dr. was painless and results were instant since they had a pathologist in the office. If you are going to use this Dr. get a second opinion. Also waited 1 hour to see her and her schedule is not flexible at all.
