50 NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 | MedEsthetics URMEN DESAI, MD, learned at an early age the rewards of caring for others. His parents ran several nursing homes in the Boston area. "When I was young, I would go to work with my mother and father. I would chat and play games with the patients," he says. "As I got a older, my after-school job was working as an activities counselor in one of the nursing homes—playing bingo and organizing card games." Thanks to those early experiences, Dr. Desai realized he felt most comfortable in a healthcare setting, interacting with patients. He began working toward a career in medi- cine. "We have many doctors in our family, so it was almost ingrained in me that I was going to become a physician, and I was happy with that," he says. "I gravitated toward classes like biology, chemistry, physics and anatomy." A desire to serve others led Urmen Desai, MD, to medicine; a passion for aesthetic surgery brought him to Beverly Hills.
