FMD is the premier PRIMARY CARE and URGENT CARE medical practice established in PASCO county, since 1984.
Dr. Bharat Desai, M.D., board-certified in Internal Medicine and Pulmonary Medicine, started his medical practice in New Port Richey in 1984. His son, Dr. Nilesh Desai, M.D., board-certified in Internal Medicine joined him in 2012.

FMD has been growing by leaps and bounds, from word of mouth, testimonials and reviews by our satisfied patients. We quickly outgrew our small office, so we built and moved into a new state of the art facility in 2021.
Jean Chiang, ARNP in 2020 and Dr. Cordero, M. D., board-certified in Internal Medicine joined our family in 2021.


Patients first is our mantra.
Patients' physical and emotional health and well-being is our primary goal at FMD.
We listen to your problems and concerns and address them appropriately.

After thorough history and examination, we arrive at probable diagnosis, consider differential diagnosis and then formulate the management plan that may include further testing, medications and referral to a specialist. We will discuss pros/cons of each intervention with you and then we will make joint decisions together as a team about further management. We will give our recommendations but will never force our decisions/beliefs on you.

You trust your health and life to us and we value and guard that trust with passion.
We fight for you rather than fight with you.
