I was given a breast cancer diagnosis. I'm sure Dr. Silva is very knowledgeable, but she seemed scripted, cold and robotic. It was very devastating to receive this diagnosis, so it was difficult to process all the information well enough to ask pertinent questions. I think, when delivering this kind of diagnosis, Dr. Siva needs to remember that the individual, a human being with emotions, needs time to process the meaning of the diagnosis, and to sort it out. It would be better if Dr. Silva let go of her script and addressed the real patient, taking into consideration that a diagnosis like the one I was given has ramifications that go beyond the physical/medical aspects. Furthermore, it would have been helpful if she had prepared for my visit, bringing appropriate, relevant information, including some kind of flow chart that would explain the cancer and the possible routes for treatment, along with statistics. As it was, I left the visit in total dismay, and with confusion as to what I had and how they would treat it. In the very least, she could have done adequate preparation for the visit, which would have helped me and shown that she truly understood how devastating it would be hear such a diagnosis.Aug 09,2019
