I've seen Doctor's in my life, never have I experienced what I went thru with this so called dr. He was more interested in how he was to be paid then why I was there. He must of had a bad day, cause all I got from him was yelling and screaming about his money, I left more upset and crying after spending less then two minutes with this so called dr. He has no respect for women and treats them with no dignity what so ever. I hope he tries to bill my insurance. No one sould experience what I did.

I have had MS for 16 years, due to insurance I had to find a new doctor and that’s how I became Dr. DeSousa’s patient. Dr. DeSousa found things on my MRI’s that no doctor in all these years had found, and he took the time to talk to me about them. I am so thankful for his being such a thorough doctor. I would recommend him to anyone! His staff is also extremely helpful. They arranged my medication delivery, took care of getting previous records... the list goes on! 5 star all the way!

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
