Hasn't gone to Trial yet. Quite a few of the charges have been dropped.....I heard some of the women weren't even patients of Dr. D'Souza.

Dr. D'souza has treated myself and my family members for a number of years. His behavior has been both professional and compasionate.

I'M DEVASTATED. I WAS APATIENT WHO TRANSFERRED OUT OF HIS CARE JUST WEEKS LEFT IN MY PREGNANCY AS HE WAS VERBALLY INAPPROPRIATE TO ME AND I COULD NOT STAND THE THOUGTH OFWHAT HE MIGHT SAY OR DO AS I WAS DUE TO HAVE MY FIRST VAG. EXMA FROM HIM, I HAD BEEN SEEIGN THE N.P. UP INTIL THEN FOR VAG. EXAMS. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS! I HAVE HAD DOCTORS THAT I BELIEVE IN TOO, BUT EVERYONE IS S QUICK TO THINK IF IT DID NOT HAPPEN TO OYU-IT IS NOT TRUE. THERE IS LOTS OF HEARTBREAK, DUE TO THE DOMINO EFFECT THIS HAD ON Y LIFE. MY SON WAS BORN WITH A PROB, AND I WANTED TO HAVE MY BABY AT CHILDREN'S, BUT WHEN I SWITCHED OUT OF THE PRACTICE, THINKING HOW COULD I BE BELIEVED-I MADE THE EXCUSE I WANTED TO HAVE THE BABY AT A HOSPITAL D'SOUZA DID NOT DELIVER AT,I PAID $50 MORE FOR A PRIVATE ROOM, CHILDREN'S HAS THEM FRO FREE. I AM DEVASTATED BY THE BLAME I CARRIED UNTIL THIS STORY CAME OUT THAT HE WAS BEING INVESTIGATED. I HAD BEEN DEPRESSED AND STILL HAVE NIGHTMARES. I BLAMED MYSELF FOR NOT STICKING OUT THE PREGNANCY, AND PUTTING UP WITH HIS INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS AND DEMEANOR. I DON'T ASK TO E BELIEVED, BUT JUST PLEASE KNOW THAT WHEN YOU ADAMANTLY DEFEND THIS MAN'S HONOR, OTHER PEOPLE LIKE ME, MAY FEEL LIKE THEIR HEART IS BEING PIERCED WITH A STAKE, THE GRIEF IS SO DEEP. I , TOO, WISH I COULD HAVE MY DAY IN COURT. I CAME FORWARD, NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE! UNLESS YOU ARE PHYSICALLY RAPED? I STILL HAVE NIGHTMARES, FLASHES OF RAGE. IT IS DISGUSTING TO ME THAT SMIRK ON HIS FACE ON THE NEWS. I DO NOT KNOW THAT HE SI GUITLY OF WHAT HE IS BEING ALLEGED, I JUST KNOW HE MISHANDLED ME SO IT DOES NOT SURPRISE ME IF IT IS DETERMINED HWE IS GUILTY. I WANT TO KNOW THE OUTCOME TOO.

LET ME JUST SAY WHEN I WAS ON VACATION, AND MYMOTER CALLWED ME TO SAY THEY CAUGHT HIM. I ASKED WHO-AND SHE SAID THAT FILTHY MOUTHED DOCTOR. I WAS TREMENDOUSLY RELIEVED OOF THE BURDEN I HAD BEEN CARRIED. I KNEW IT WAS NOT ME AT ALL. I HAD MADE THE RIGHT DECISION TO SWITCH DOCTORS, EVEN IF IT AMDE ME LOOK ERRATIC. EVEN IF I HAD NO ANSWERS WHEN I CAME HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL WITH MY 2ND BORN BEAUTIFUL CHILD. I KEPT THINKING IF I HAD STUCK IT OUT I WOULD HAVE HAD SPECIALISTS RIGHT AWAY LOOKING A HIM, RATHER THAN LEAVING THE HOSPITAL AND HAVING PEOPLE SAY HE MAY HAVE APOTENTIALLY FATAL CONDITION. I SUFFERED IMMENSELY UNTIL FINALLY MY SON HAD SURGERY AND BIOPSY 14 MONTHS AFTER HIS BIRTH. YOU JUST DON'T KNOW HOW THIS EFFECTED ME! I AM GLAD NOW, THAT I DID NOT HAVE THAT MAN IN MY ROOM DELIVERING THE BABY. PART OF THE REASON I TRANSFERRED-WAS THE THOUGH OF HAVING SOMEONE WHO SEEMED SO FULL OF PERVERSION DELIVERING MY BABY. I HAD A N.P.! AND AMALE STUDENT WATCHED ME DELIVER NATURAKLLY. SO IF ANYONE THINKS I AM UNCOMFORTABLE ABOUT MEN THAT IS NOT IT! IF AMAN IS PROFESSIONAL I HAEV NO PROBLEM,BUT WHEN THEY ARE WAY TOO FRIENDLY AND SAY CREEPY THINGS WHEN THEY TOUCH YOUR BELL-THAT IS A WARNING TO GET AWAY! SORRY T POST SO MUCH1 BUT I STILL CRY AND FEEL SO MUCH-ANYONE KNOW ANYONE WHO CARES? I HAD CONTACTED THE POLICE-WHO SAID THEY HAD TAKEN ENOUGH COMPLAINTS WOULD NOT TAKE ANYMORE . THEN I CALLED THE OPMC AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD CONTACT OR INTERVIEW ME IF NEEDED. BUT I WOULD LIKE SOME PERSONAL CLOSURE. THE RAGE IS TOO MUCH! BESIDES COUNSELING, I NEED TO FACE HIM AND TELL HIM EXACTLY WHAT HE DID TO ME-IS JUST NOT RIGHT!!!

TO SUM IT UP- I STILL BAWL LIKE A BABY AND HAVE NIGHTMARES AND I FEEL NOBODY CARES ABOUT WHAT HE DID OR HOW HIS ACTIONS AFFECTED MY LIFE-I WAS EVEN TOO DEPRESSED TO SEND OUT BABY ANNOUNCEMENTS. IT REALLY FEELS LIKE NO ONE CARES. I WISH THE OPMC WOULD AT LEAST INTERVIEW ME, OR SOMEONE, TO MAKE ME FEEL THAT WHAT HAPPENED WAS NOT RIGHT. I FEEL IGNORED, ALONE, AND STILL VERY, VERY ANGRY AT THE WAY HE TREATED ME. I WISH SOMEONE CARED!

FOR THE POINT OF ACCURACY)ACTUALLY I PAID $100 MORE FOR THE PRIVATE ROOM TO GO TO A HOSPITAL THAT WAS NOT MY FIRST CHOICE, AND MY CO-PAY WAS $500 AS IT WAS. THAT JUST SAYS A LITLE THAT I WAS WILLING TO SPEND MORE MONEY TO GET AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR! I FORGOT IT WAS $600 TOTAL, AND I PAID MONTHLY FOR A YEAR.
I FEEL SAD THAT SOMEONE OF DR. D'SOUZA'S ESTEEM AND ACCLAIM (I HAVE READ OF HIS MEDICAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND HE CONTRIBUTED MUCH TO THE OB-GYN COMMUNITY) COULD POSSIBLY BE GUILTY, BUT AFTER MY ORDEAL WITH HIM, OBVIOUSLY, I BELIEVE THERE IS A GREAT CHANCE THE ALLEGATIONS ARE TRUE, BUT THAT IS NOT FOR ME TO DECIDE OR EXCLAIM THAT IS FOR A COURT TO DECIDE. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE ALLEGATIONS ARE, BUT I AM GLAD THAT THIS HAPPENED, AS IT WAS THE BLESSING I NEEDED TO GET OVER THE OVERWHELMING GUILT I CARRIED. I WISH NONE OF THIS HAD HAPPENED. I WISH I HAD NEVER GONE TO D'SOUZA. IF ONLY WALLS COULD TALK. IF HE IS GUILTY, I HOPE HE NEVER PRACTICES AGAIN (UNLESS MAYBE IN A LABORATORY RESEARCHING-NO PATIENT CONTACT). AND ANYONE INNOCENT SHOULD BE LIBERATED AGAINST FALSE CLAIMS. I AM JUST SCARED FOR THE PUBLIC IF HE IS GUILTY. I AM AFRAID TO POST THIS OR SPEAK UP, AS I KNOW I WOULD SUDDENLY BE THE ONE GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT. IT IS AMAZING HOW WHEN I MUSTERED UP ALL THE COURAGE I COULD TO CONTACT THE POLICE, THEY WERE SO CALLOUS TO DISMISS ME AND SAY THEY WERE NOT TAKING ANY MORE COMPLAINTS! AND NEVER GAVE ME THE PHONE NUMBER FOR THE OPMC, THEY JUST SAID CALL THE ERIE COUNTY D.A.'S OFFICE, COULD NOT EVEN BOTHER TO GIVE ME THEIR PHONE NUMBER! I HAD TROUBLE FINDING IT, BUT THAT ACTUALLY MADE ME MORE DETERMINED TO REACH SOMEONE! LET ME JUST SAY IT'S NOT SURPRISING TO ME THAT FEMALE VICTIMS OF ALL KINDS OF ABUSE ARE INTIMIDATED INTO NOT COMING FORWARD AND REMAINING SILENT. I FEEL LIKE AN IGNORED, SILENT VICTIM. WHEN THEY SAY SO MANY CAME FORWARD, I DO NOT THINK MY COMPLAINT WAS EVEN COUNTED! IT IS SO HURTFUL! I REALLY HAVE TROUBLE GETTING THIS OFF MY MIND. MY SON JUST HAD HIS SECOND SURGERY 2 WEEKS AGO. IT APPEARS HE IS GOING TO BE OKAY, BUT THE FIRST MONTHS/YEAR WERE BITTERSWEET. OBVIOUSLY, THERE WAS GREAT JOY TO BOND WITH MY BEAUTIFUL BABY, BUT SADNESS WONDERING IF THIS GORGEOUS LITTLE ONE WOULD BE LEAVING ME. HE WAS ALSO BORN WITH AN SVUC, SINGLE VESSEL UMBILICAL CORD, NO ONE INFORMED ME WHILE PREGNANT, NOT SURE IF THEY KNEW AND DID NOT TELL ME? IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DISCLOSED. THE SONOGRAM TECHNICIAN AT CHILDREN'S KEPT ZEROING IN ON IT, SAYING SHE HAD TROUBLE FINDING IT? AND SHE SEEMED CONCERNED, BUT WHEN I WAITED FOR MY DOCOR TO DISCUSS THE SONOGRAM HE SAID NOTHING. AND THEN NO ONE VERBALLY REPORTED TO ME THAT MY SON HAD AN SVUC. NOT SURE IF THEY SHOULD OR COULD TELL ME? THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN D'SOUZA'S RESPONSIBILTY! AN SVUC IS CONSIDERED AN ANOMALY, PRESENT BY ITSELF- HARMLESS, BUT WHEN PRESENT WITH OTHER PROBLEMS IT CAN BE ANOTHER THING THAT BASICALLY HELPS CONFIRM TROUBLE.
I FEEL GREAT JOY IN MOTHERHOOD, BUT SO LET DOWN BY THE WAY MY SITUATION WAS HANDLED. THER ARE SO MANY FEMALE VICTIMS LIVING IN SILENCE AND IMMENSE SUFFERING FOR FEAR OF COMING FORWARD AND BEING DISMISSED OR FURTHER HURT, BOTH VERBALLY AND EVEN PHYSICALLY. I JUST SHAKE FROM THIS ALL THE TIME. THE NO CLOSURE, NO JUSTICE, I FEEL INVISIBLE AND ABSOLUTELY IGNORED. THAT IS PAINFUL OF ITSELF!
IF ANYONE HEARS ANY NEWS ON THIS CASE, PLEASE POST. I HAVE NO IDEA IF HIS CASE IS OVER/DONE? I WILL PROBABLY BE THE LAST TO KNOW.

I am very sorry to hear that this happened to you. Having a baby should be a joyous event and he took that from you. People need to realize that even though you pay a doctor and they technically work for you, they are in a position of authority when women are at their most vulnerable. There is no excuse for this kind of conduct by anyone. I read the accusations and they are very disturbing. I hope you can move on from this and realize that you did NOTHING wrong.

Listen here "rerun" why don't you run along and run your big ugly mouth somewhere else. No one here is interested in your pathetic humor. She never said she didn't do anything.

He is not Hindu. He told me himself that he is Christian and that he hoped my son would be born before his due date (12-24) I don't know what he has been accused of but I can say that he helped me through an incredibly rough time during my pregnancy and he was there on 12-24 to deliver my son. I hope the accusations are false. If they are not then he deserves to be held accountable.

I didn't say he was Hindu..the foul mouthed Mr Rerun did. But I am glad your experience with him was a good one. There is a link to the official Health Dept complaints on one of the boards. They are very disturbing and consistently similar. It seems lots of women had wonderful experiences with him but as you can read in the above comments, some were horrified by his behavior. It's a sad thing.

First, thank you Mom to 4 fro your supportive words. It means a lot. You can't argue with someone who is ignorant or just trying to be controversial intentionally to cause trouble, You just waste your time and energy. est to ignore.
This is off topic completely. Reasonable and logical people know it does NOT matter what a person's religion, ethnicity, gender, OR ETC. are! What matters is how they treat other people, how they conduct themselves and their lives by the choices they make, choices they are accountable for. Name calling and racism is offensive and wrong, and it has nothing to do with D'Souza or this topic/situation.
I wish people who have nothing to contribute on this topic, would refrain from doing so-and stop attacking others and instigating others in this topic forum.
