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.
in RANDOLPH |
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.
Mrs. H statements are false and inaccurate.She had a appointment at 3.30pm and arrived at the office at 4.15pm (not 9 minutes late as she claimed).As she was 45 minutes late (on a Friday) and I had 3 more patients to be seen, she was asked to reschedule her appointment.However, she refused and became belligerent. As regards to lunch breaks,I have never taken a break of longer than 15 minutes in my 28 years of practice.

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.
in Cranford, NJ |
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.
in Roselle Park, NJ |
Tried to make an appointment. Used the website and there's no way to make an appointment online with the Springfield office. So I called. After going through numerous menu options... I was instructed I had to leave a message to make an appointment... nobody would pick up the phone and actually speak to me. Stated it would be 1-2 days before someone would call me back. Well NOBODY even bothered to return my call. These people are awful... and I would never use them. Bad!!

Dr. Desouza is clearly excellent and we have full confidence in him. His clinicial staff is also excellent. However, his front office staff is horrible. They are rude and unhelpful always. They seem like angry people.

My son is 18, Im proud that he is enlisting in the US Army. At last min he was asked to get letters from his drs, his enlistment phy had been moved up, all dr he went to took time to write 1 or said come back tom and pick up. This staff was completely diff and couldn't care less about him or the army he asks if he could talk to the dr for 5 min even if he has to wait hours they said he sees no1 without appt. Yet Rx reps can go in w 1 call to the back n no appt. Money over our military how sad
in Jersey city, NJ |
I felt Dr Desouza was great with my son. My problem was his staff at Morristown. From day one, reception and nurse were quite unfriendly and unwelcoming.
