Dr. Desai will be working at 72 East Main Street in Babylon and 1500 Route 112, Building #4 in Port Jefferson Station.

Dr. Desai earned her Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery degree from JK Medical College and Research Center. She then completed her residency and fellowship at Winthrop-University Hospital.

Dr. Desai is fluent in Hindi and enjoys practicing Indian classical dance, Bharatanatyam. She adores spending time with her family and became inspired to pursue a career in medicine when a relative was stricken with cancer. “At first it made me angry, frustrated and sad. It had, however, further piqued my interest in finding a cure for cancer,” said Dr. Desai. “This led me to medicine, and eventually to pursue oncology.”

Dr. Desai was eager to provide local care which led her to NYCBS to administer treatment. “I came to NY Cancer because I am inspired to give the best treatment to my community and do what I love doing—healing,” said Dr. Desai.
