Dr. Desai was very nice and engaging, asking questions. She was also knowledgeable about my past and current issues, exhibiting concern regarding my future care. I feel very comfortable having her help me manage my pulmonary needs going forward.

This was my first visit with Dr. Nikita Dessie. I told her I had questions for her because I wanted to start getting out among people again. I had questions about my mask, was it safe for me to be around unvaccinated people (several people I know are not vaccinated) while indoors, etc. She listened and answered each one. I forgot to ask if I was qualified to receive another booster shot since I was going to be out more so I sent her a message via the portal. She responded in a very timely manner.
