Specialties

Dr. Marina Dsouza 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.

One in a million

Dr. Bhumitra is a very warm, empathetic Dr. She is a great listener and gets to the root of the problem and comes up with ideas, advice and sometimes solutions. She is very down to earth and does not just through pills at you. I have known her for years.

Warm Bedside manner

I had post partum depression and psychosis. Dr. Buhmitra took me the next day for an evening appt. She has a beautiful smile and warm manner. She immediately put me on medicines that were good fit for me. She deserves a raving rating. She had to interrupt her practice due to a family emergency. This is the reason for the lack of reviews.

Not very good

Back in the late 90s, I had a nervous breakdown. I was referred by my insurance company to her. I found her to be cold and not very warm. She gave me a lot of pills, Melaril, Risperdal, Klonopin and several anti-depresants like Serzone and BuSpar.Instead of curing the acute problem at the time, she just kept prescribing pills. She then passed me on to another shrink after the insurance ran out.
