if only all providers were as knowledgeable as Dr. Silva ... we would have a much healthier population.Jul 09,2018
this doctor actually explained the WHY of some problems I've been having, and how to go about getting rid of some of the problems. He made common sense ..... took his time....and even gave me sources to obtain the leg hose I need. Not just "go buy some compression hose"....he truly explained HOW the hose work, will help, and places where I could get them other than the horrible ones sold at local drug stores, etc.May 21,2018
