I went to see Dr Desai because I was suffering from disturbed sleep, waking in the night gasping for breath. That’s the layman’s description, the medical term would be sleep apnoea. I was also snoring very loudly so you can imagine how unpopular I was with my wife! Dr Desai fitted me with a simple, comfortable device that cured the problem completely. The device was ready within days of our first meeting. On a personal level she was kind, sympathetic and above all extremely knowledgeable.

I've had a great experience with Dr.Desai. She has been very patient explaining different treatment options. She also has a great breadth of knowledge in her area and we discussed root causes of my issues as well as treatments which I really appreciated. Her advice throughout has been very good and is yielding great results. I have been suffering from sleep related issues due to snoring. Dr Desai very quickly offered me a non-invasive treatment solution which has been working very well.
