Dr. Palau has been very thorough and knowledgeable about my illness. It was amazing and so appreciated the quickness of getting in to see him. I had called other infectious disease offices and they seemed unconcerned about my husbands health issues. We are very impressed with the staff and their concern for their patients.  100%

Is very professional

A wonderful doctor, with a great staff. I highly recommend Dr. Palau. 

Very easy to talk to, he made me feel like we were old friends. Great Guy! 

Dr. Palau is the best doctor I've ever been to. He has saved my toe. my foot and both legs. Who could ask fur more?  

Good man.

Dr Palau explained everything to me and my rheumatologist called him and I had appointment that very day!

He fought with my insurance co. for a much needed test that later revealed that I had pneumonia. Thank God for Dr. Palau!

He is a good Doctor

He has been my doctor since 2002, and I can't imagine using another doctor.

Dr. Palau and everyone in his office treated me fantastic. I would definitely recommend anyone needing this type of treatment to him.

We believe Dr Palau is a well-informed, kind doctor who cares for his patients. Most likely he saved my life, from a hospital super bug introduced by surgeons treating Kidney stones/stents.

I trust him and think he is a wonderful Dr. 

I saw Dr. Palau in 2010 for a lung infection which was resolved. 

Dr Palau was very attentive and treated and remembered me as an individual.

Everyone I have seen in this practice, from Dr. Chen and Dr. Desai to the infusion nurses and people at the desk, every single one has been outstanding. They are gracious, informative, kind, and educational. I have already referred people to the practice. Such personalized care is not common in these times of managed care and increased demand on health care providers' time. I greatly appreciate you all. 

He treated me as an intelligent partner in the conversation about my health. I wish more doctors could be like Dr. Desai... 

Dr. Desai is very thorough and he explains things well. Not rushed and office staff is helpful. Glad we found him.  

Again the experience I had here was amazing. The nurses and staff made sure you were taken well care of. I was very pleased [visit for Vipul Desai, M.D.]

He has a very gentle bedside manner. 

I thank Dr. Desai for his part in saving my life. I am very grateful. [visit for Vipul Desai, M.D.] 

Dr.Desai is one of the most thorough, kindest physician I have seen. I had an infection that was hard to treat due to allergic reactions I had to several antibiotics. I am thankful for his expertise...

Although no one can be the perfect 10, Dr. Desai was very close. I felt comfortable with him and even though I am in the medical field, he made sure to explain things so my wife and I both fully understood the care, the plan, and the reasoning

I love Dr. Desai! He has provided me with nothing but excellent care. He has come in on his days off to see me in the office. He is so compassionate and works so hard trying to find the root of the problem. I would recommend Dr. Desai any day of the week!

I enjoyed and appreciated everything he did for me. So much so that I have reccommended him to a friend 

Dr. Desai is very pleasant, patient and explains what problem is and what treatment and medicines are for, very well.

I felt well taken care, especially when taking an infusion. Very nice nurses, atmosphere pleasant. [visit for Leonardo Palau, M.D.] 

When I first called, one of the nurses called my insurance to verify what was covered and not covered for an upcoming appointment I had. Although this might not have been see as a major effort on the nurse's part, I greatly appreciated!! [visit for Leonardo Palau, M.D.]
