BSW is the best medical provider I have visited at age 69. Love the app for information and a record of my services. The check out procedure with a recap of the the visit and instructions to follow. Did not have to go to another provider for blood work, allergy testing, mammograms and bone density services!

Dr. Desai deserves special recognition for the way that she goes above and beyond to make her patients feel at ease. She has a warm, friendly demeanor and a cheerful smile that took away any anxiety I had. She is also a powerful advocate for her patients and took the time to talk to me about my healthcare options. She is in the top tier of providers I have experienced.

Never in my life have I had a doctor like Dr. Nina Desai and I\'m in my thirties! She was amazing and made me feel like she truly cared. She encouraged me to ask questions and to share. She listened and gave me very clear advice. But beyond that it was also the little things, like the fact that she requested a photo when I checked in, like the fact that she greeted me as a person and didn\'t make me sit on the table first, all of it just made me feel so welcome and cared for. Like I said, I have never had a doctor like her and she will be my gold standard moving forward.

I went in for a routine visit and didn\'t even know I was sick. Dr. Desai and her nurse caught that I had a fever and strep. How I had no idea that I had strep I will never know, but I\'m so grateful for how thorough they always are in their examinations.

I felt like the provider did little to ensure that I had what I needed to get through my illness. The provider suggested I get Flonase for what seemed like a viral infection. I was having a sore throat and was having difficulty swallowing and an aggressive cough. I wanted the provider to suggest something for the cough or sore throat.
