I went to see Dr. D'Soouza for my annual exam. Wait time was short and the staff was friendly but I had a horrible experience with her. She was not gentle on the woman's portion of the exam (I was sore for a day!). Also, she ordered tests that weren't covered by insurance and I was stuck with a big bill for a preventative exam. I do not recommend.

I am so pleased with Dr. D Souza and her staff on the occasion of my second visit. Just as pleasant as the first visit. No wait time to speak of either for the appt. or for a lab draw. ALL four staff members I encountered were not just pleasant but good conversationalists. I had a list of three things I wanted to talk to and have the doctor evaluate and treat. She started with the most serious and attended to all three issues. I especially like that Dr. D'Souza educated me on the how and why she arrives at a diagnosis and then the options for treating.

I saw her two times when my usual doctor was unavailable. She should be an academic researcher. She has no bedside manner and is like a robot. She can't communicate. I had to advocate for myself and she argued with me both times, citing a lack of evidence, and after two visits she still couldn't get a treatment plan in place. I have been a patient at NW for 10 years and delivered my children there. Truly the worst experience at NW two times. Very easy to get in with her though and I can see why

She has been my doctor for a few years following the departure of my long time family doctor. Dr. D'Souza may not be warm, but she does warm up. I find her cautious and competent.

Sadly I had a terrible experience. I arrived on time for my appointment and told once I was there that I was supposed to be 20 minutes early, therefore, I was not seen for the appointment I came in for. The doctor was very short with me and made me incredibly uncomfortable to talk to her about my issues. I have never been treated like such a number and not a person. Also unimpressed with level of care given post discussing my health.

I too was very disappointed with my experience with Dr. D'Souza. She went through the motions and did not provide thorough answers. Her recommendation for an Rx were actually inappropriate due to an impending surgery. Her review of my tests were a "general overview" rather than specifically addressing significant differences in the results. I ask for specific referrals and she referred me to the website saying the practice was very large rather than helping me with the referral.

Failed to tell me important information about how my current prescriptions would interfere with test results. Learned well-after taking the test, through my own research, that my results could be skewed. When asked why certain conditions arise I was told "it just happens". Then was written a prescription to address my symptoms, not the root of the problem. Felt as though she did not care to get to the bottom of what was/is happening. Seeing a specialist now in hopes of figuring out the issue.
