After taking care of me for a few years, Dr. Bugno felt I would be better served with a medical oncologist. He had me see Dr. Apurva Desai and briefed Dr. Desai thoroughly on my case.

Dr. Desai picked up my care without missing a beat and has been just as outstanding as Dr. Bugno. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Desai and his care and professionalism.

Amy Moerschbaecher says:

Thank you for doing a great job as our cancer committee chair

Chris’ sister says:

Dr. Desai has earned the confidence of my brother and his family for successfully treating his late stage cancer for almost 5 years. His knowledge of current and cutting edge treatment modalities, clinical trials, and kindness have kept my brother alive and without pain. Dr. Desai has shared information and always considered my brother’s wishes. He has great knowledge as well as a supportive and caring personality, and he and my brother have not given up, indeed, he has just begun a new treatment regimen that may prolong his life further. I am so thankful for Dr. Desai’s professionalism, knowledge and his wonderful, caring manner.

Thank you for your knowledge of clinical trials

 

Sue Shearer says:

Thank you for saving my best friend’s life. She was told she only had a month to live, Stage 4 lung cancer that spread to her liver. She got a second opinion – you. It was a tough road but she was in remission in less than a year thanks to your great care. Today she gets to enjoy life with her two grandchildren. Don’t ever take no for an answer because there is always hope. Thank you Dr. Desai for your incredible care and concern. I appreciate all that you do for your patients. You are truly a special doctor.

T T L says:

Wow Desai! Wow! First he makes you sick, then your hair falls out, then you can’t eat, can’t walk, wheelchair bound. Hospital visit, hospital visit, hospital visit. And then he gave me a future – remission. How do you say thank you to him, I don’t know. You’re always in my heart and prayers. You will never be out of my life. Luv Bug loves you and I love you.

Barb Ladd, Social Worker says:

Dr. Desai
I feel so priviledged to have worked on a few cases with you. You are so caring, and concerned and always take the time to get to know your patients. Your bedside manner is exceptional. As a registry social worker I work with all the drs. in the system, in my book you are one of the best. Thanks you from me, and I think I speak for your pts. as well!
