Our dedicated doctors care about your healthcare

Gwinnett Internal Medicine Associates celebrated its 25th year of health service to Gwinnett and surrounding communities in 2007.   Since 1982, a small rural practice has grown into a five physician group practice with two locations and state of the art equipment;  providing 24 hours/7days a week coverage from adolescence to geriatric population.

After practicing in Toccoa, GA, Dr. Jay Desai moved to Lawrenceville in 1982. In 1985, after serving Prudential Healthcare, Dr. Rekha Desai joined the practice making it a husband wife team. As the practice grew, they moved from South Clayton Street office to a large, new facility conveniently located near the Gwinnett Medical Center on Old Norcross Road in 1993.  The group practice expanded when Dr Kartikeya P. Patel (1997), Dr. Arati H. Joshi (2005), and Dr. Rekha Kesavan (2011) joined the Gwinnett Internal Medicine Associates team.  To serve North Gwinnett County, they opened their second office in 2002 in Dacula on Hog Mountain Road which is near the  Hamilton Mill area.

They provide in-patient services at Gwinnett Medical Center (Duluth and Lawrenceville campus) and Eastside Medical Center in Snellville, GA,  Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Braselton, GA and  are on attending staff at several Nursing and Assisted Living facilities. In spite of the practice’s growth, their mission statement still holds true… to provide compassionate, comprehensive, personalized healthcare to their patients.
