Biography

“I consider it a privilege to help patients through one of the most difficult journeys they take when dealing with cancer. Navigating through the myriad choices now available for treatment of cancer is daunting for anyone, and I am grateful to have the expertise to help patients with these choices.”

Dr. Desai is board certified in internal medicine and hematology-oncology (cancer and blood disorders). She has clinical interests in breast cancer and solid tumors.

As an undergraduate, she volunteered for a pediatric oncologist who inspired her to pursue a career in oncology.

Dr. Desai was the principal investigator at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on several trials, with a particular interest in HER2-positive breast cancer.

She received her bachelor’s degree in microbiology and her medical degree at the University of Florida.

In her spare time, Dr. Desai enjoys being in nature, reading a book on a rainy day, and spending time with friends and family.
