DR. DESOUZA IS A GYN WHO HAS A WARM PERSONALITY AND VERY PATIENT AND LISTENS TO CONCERNS AND VERY ACCOMMODATING. SHE IS VERY THOROUGH IN ALL THAT SHE DOES IN TRYING TO RESOLVE A PROBLEM. SHE IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND TAKES HER PROFESSION VERY SERIOUSLY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO GO TO HER. THEY WILL BE VERY SATISFIED WITH THEIR VISIT.

Mixed up lab results, office staff not communicating with each other, bad attitudes and misinformation with medi
