Actual Patient Testimonial
“For the better part of two decades, I have suffered from debilitating head and neck pain. I have a host of other issues and pains in multiple joints and bones that Dr. DrSouza has treated, but, most significantly, Dr. DeSouza has helped me be able to put my head down on a pillow at the end of the day without the excruciating headaches and neck pain that I had been sure would require surgery.

She is also able to calm my nerves and exudes complete confidence during the most complicated procedures. Thank Heaven for her and her continued care and nurturing!”
