Bhavim Desai is a board-certified Family Medicine Physician with sub-specialty training in Sleep Medicine. Originally from Columbia, South Carolina. He graduated cum laude from the University of South Carolina where he majored in Finance and Information Systems. After some family medical issues and a change of career plan he completed medical school at the University of South Carolina.

Dr. Desai completed residency at St. Mary Mercy in Livonia near Detroit. Afterwards he worked in urgent care and as a traveling doctor doing locum tenens in Michigan, US Virgin Islands and Washington.  He then completed sleep medicine fellowship at Banner Medical Center with the University of Arizona in Tucson. There he worked with one of the thought leaders in the field. That’s where he learned to treat all the various disorders related to sleep outside of the common aliments of sleep apnea and insomnia.

Afterwards he worked in Northern California at private sleep practice. After the COVID pandemic he moved to Austin and became integral in revamping Sleep Medicine Consultants. His hope is to provide comprehensive sleep care to the people of Austin and surrounding areas.
