What Patients Say About Me

  • Caring for children is, obviously, Dr DeSilva’s passion not just her profession. This facility is not convenient for me but, if it’s all possible, I will bring my kids one hour away because I prefer that they are under the care of a doctor that uses their medical training, experience, and innate wisdom in deciding the best way to restore my children to good health. Dr DeSilva provides that kind of care. Meela C.
  • The staff is great the nurse is so sweet and already knows both of my children. Dr. De silva is excellent and the phlebotomist was also very pleasant and kind to my daughter. My wait time is also minimal anytime i go. Thank you so much Audrey N.
