Specialties

Dr. Maria M Da Costa has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Five Stars

I was a patient for over 5 yrs with Dr. Da Costa. I found her to be kind, compassionate and understanding. After a 2 yr depression with another doctor, she was able to make me well again in a very short time with her medical treatment. She changed the course of my life and I am extremely happy and grateful to her.

Impersonal and scripted bedside manner

Dr. DaCosta has a private private after 4 pm as adjunct to her job at an addiction clinic at another location. Her manner is scripted and impersonal, and routinely asks basic questions....are you sleeping, eating?, etc. She does not welcome questioning about her prescribed medications and expresses annoyance if that occurs. Dr. DaCosta uses an answering service to take all calls. Her private practice is secondary to her daytime work and she appears tired, listens but is not conversant. One clearly gets the impression that her heart is in financial profit not empathetic patient care.
