Jenn Moses, Office Manager

Jenn Moses has been working with Dr. Desai for more than 15 yrs and knows almost all the patients and most patients also get to know her very well. Very often, patients will directly get in touch with her when they need help to get their medication or service approved that insurance is denying to patients. She fights so hard for patients and so many have come to know her so very well. She really is a cohesive factor that keeps all our employees bound together. Whenever any of them have any problem, they run to Jenn. She splits her time between both offices, Manassas and South Riding.
