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.

Excellent! Dr. Desai is incredibly knowledgeable, kind and thorough. He was able to schedule my endoscopy to get to the bottom of things just days after our first visit and put my nerves at ease the day of the procedure. Throughout this entire experience he has been so easy to communicate with and incredibly responsive. I highly recommend him for anyone needing to see a Gastroenterologist!
