About me

Hello, my name is Dr. Shireena Desai. I am excited to have the opportunity to introduce myself and tell you about my philosophy as a physician.

Biography

I was born in New York and grew up in northern California. Since childhood, I knew I wanted to be a physician and help care for others. I moved to Southern California for college and have been here since. I went to medical school at UC Irvine, completed my internal medicine residency training at UCLA, and I conducted my gastroenterology fellowship training at UC San Diego. Since then, I have been happy to call Orange County and Kaiser Permanente my home.

About my practice

I treat patients with a variety of gastrointestinal and liver related diseases. The two key ingredients of my gastroenterology practice are clinical excellence and compassionate care—a balance I see as my hallmark as a physician. I look forward to making a difference in the lives of my patients as their doctor and advocate.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my family, going for walks along the beautiful Orange County beaches, and traveling.
