    this was my second visit for the same reason and I am just as disappointed as I was the 1st time. i came for severe sharp chest pain, dizziness, lightheaded hr of 49. the doctor said now that you know your results are fine that should make you feel better. ummm no. just because my results are fine does not take away that I had multiple episodes if severe paralyzing chest pain prior to the appointment. before the doctor entered the room I read the report on the computer screen and it said mitral valve regurgitation and he didnt tell me about it . I asked him about it rt before he walked out of the room and he said oh yeah that's normal all people have that. well I know that is not a correct statement. I do not like that the doctor said now that you know the results are negative you will feel better...he made it seem as it was all in my head. he said follow up as needed. fast forward a few months and it happens again. this time while cooking in the kitchen a sudden chest pain, couldnt talk breath couldnt move, dropped and broke my dishes. a paralyzing sharp cheat pain. I made the appointment and was seen 1 month later because "I'm not an emergency". waited 1 hr before seeing the doctor.40mins in waiting room, 25minutes in the actual pt room before he came in.explained to him what happen and he asked if I had calf pain or foot pain. I told him yes, I did not no that was pertinent information. But yes occasionally I wake up with bad calf and bad foot pain. the doctor said he doesn't know what's causing my chest pain he said to come back if I continue to have these problems. What is the point of coming back again when this is the follow-up for the same thing and he can do nothing for me.
    All positive.
    One of the better doctors that I have seen.
    *Dr. Desouza is my heart doctor. He saved my life. Only good things to say about him ->
    No complaints (very good doctor) & receptionist.
