The best Neurologist at Atlantic Health Care but some of his office staff is not sensitive or has no sense of processes.

I used to go see Dr. Desouza years ago as a kid and he is amazing! He’s very friendly and easy to talk to. He’s a great listener and takes his time to explain the treatment plan and is incredibly caring. Highly recommend him!

Dr. DeSouza's secretary scheduled us for a date during our Christmas trip, then charged us a $50 fee for not showing. Rather than handle their error directly, they sent us to billing, even sending us a bill threatening to refer us to a collections service if we didn't pay their bogus fee. His office refused to recognize and own their error. My advice to you? Don't deal with this doctor's office run around BS. Find another physician.

Dr. Desouza and his staff took amazing care in evaluating my son. I was very nervous and he put my mind at ease with his knowledge and calm manner with both my son and I. Terrific mix of pragmatic advice and medical expertise.

I remember Dr. De sousa from when he began seeing my daughter, Alexandra. She was born with a very rare condition, and Dr. De sousa was the only doctor at the hospital where she was born that knew what she had from the signs and symptoms. He is excellent and very knowlegable to say the least. And my daughter at 28 now, remembers him! She was 4 when she last saw him. Looking at complaints here about the staff. In Madison office, never a problem. Suggestion:your child is seen by him, not his staff

This office is horrible. The receptionist is very rude and should not be in the healthcare industry. They left us waiting for 40 minutes and when I asked about our appointment they said the doctor was not even in the building! If I hadn't asked they would have let us sit there waiting. Find another doctor who cares about patients.

Dr. DeSouza was recommended by our pediatrician. Rude office staff sighed and transferred me to a message instructing me cheerily that the best way to make an appointment was by filling out a form online, so I did that. Two days have gone by and nobody has bothered to contact me. They are at best inattentive, at worst, rude and dismissive. No thanks. Moving on to a practice where someone bothers to talk to me on the phone and my kid won't be a number to you.

The office staff is rude and incompetent, they do not return phone calls and are not helpful or courteous to the patient or family. Dr. DeSouza is very hard to understand and arrogant, he makes you feel unimportant and irrelevant. We were there for an appointment at 4:00 we were 9 minutes late they said the appointment was at 3:30 so the Dr. Would not see us or come out to explain, although it's OK for him to make us wait for 2 hrs while he has lunch. We called 2 days prior, no return call. Sad.

Had to submit a request online to request an appointment because when you call the office number, the recording says its the fastest way to get one. Called to follow up two days later but got the same recording so I left a message. Day 3 - called someone else. Apparently, they have enough work.

Dr. Desouza has been very helpful. He listens to our concerns and gives great feedback. He listens to what we have to say. I agree with the other reviews about the front desk staff.
