Contradicted yourself from one appointment to another. At one appointment she had many ideas and said one thing, then the next appointment never followed up with those ideas just dropped them and said the total opposite thing from the last appointment. Was very rushed and repeatedly reassured us that we were on a time limit. Did not take the extra time out to go a little further into the investigation. Basically gave up. Just very unhelpful. Very disappointed in her and in fact in the whole sick kids hospital.

Our child was a patient at Sickkids this past spring and summer. Dr Desouza decided on her own and paid attention to only the reports that were helpful to her own point of view. Whether intentionally or not, she also left information out that put our child in danger and has kept him from his regular physicians that have known him for his entire life. I wonder in this day and age why there are very few psychiatrists who actually understand echolaic Autistic spectrum kids who talk a lot but have very low comprehension. Drs need to LEARN from parents who know their child best, one of Sickkids principles that was sorely ignored while we were there and what we got sent for never got done and our family has been turned upside down because of incompetence at what is supposed to be the best hospital in Canada. The system country wide has failed our son and I hope hardship doesn't turn into tragedy on account of our unfortunate contact with this doctor.

Dr. DeSouza is our saving grace. She is an absolute gem. She is very helpful and listens to the parents and can tell if even they are hurting too. To help parents deal with a problem child and get them in control and back to society has been a relief and a breath of fresh air. She also encourages you to keep going and to let you know that your doing a great job. It's so nice to be able to have faith in a Dr. that seems to actually care about not only the child but what the child has to deal with every day. She also have great communication with our Pediatric Dr. in Windsor. We don't ever wait to see her she is always on time and never makes you feel rushed. She is very carefull with giving meds and is always checking to see is the child is doing well or does there need to be a change. She listens, which is the most important thing anyone could do.
