About Amit P. Desai, M.D.

Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is an exciting field with a wide spectrum of acute and chronic diseases. I chose the field because we as gastroenterologists can truly help patients who suffer from these diseases. The field focuses on many organs and encompasses a broad variety of diseases as they relate to the abdomen and GI tract – from the stomach, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder to the small intestine and colon. The breadth of medical issues within this specialty allows us as gastroenterologists to develop comprehensive yet focused care for our patients.

Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?

I have developed an interest in all aspects of GI and liver diseases. I have an additional year of focused, subspecialty training in interventional/therapeutic endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, ERCP, enteral stenting and the management of complex intestinal, colonic, pancreatic or biliary diseases.

Reviews

My first time ever needing to see a GI specialist. Meeting Dr. A. Desai was a great experience. He was very knowledgeable, he listened to my chief complaint, gave great insight and recommendations to my concerns, and discussed the next steps in my plan of care. He’s great. I definitely will be recommending him. The clinical staff was very sweet and kind. Very helpful, spoke with great tone, friendly, and very professional. Overall experience was excellent.
