in SOUTH PASADENA |
Dr. DeSousa was extremely kind and helpful. He treated my mother and I with respect and took our concerns seriously. Lovely man.
in St. Pete FL |
This office should be shut down. They don't follow through on his own RX. Waited for 2 MRI's because they needed a reason to be authorized by NIA RAD MD all he put down was pain not that I could not move my arm. The people at NIA even called them. I finally did self pay for The MRI's and found out I had 3 tears in tendons/rotator cuff. Office will not tell you if you are not in network(they take you,but you pay 50% instead of 30%) Charges almost $900 for visit & 2 Mri's done. run
