Review for Dr. Dasilva

Excellent Doctor! I was evaluated for a lump under my jaw, Dr. Warder thought it was a cyst, but scheduled a scan for further evaluation. Imaging showed a tumor, which caused concern. Dr. Warder scheduled surgery, removed the tumor (benign) and surrounding lymph nodes. Scarring is minimal.

Review for Dr. Warder

You actually have a name here, not a number. Dr. Martin is personable and a great listener. He doesn’t jump to a conclusion before you have finished talking. He asks intuitive questions. He is up to date and open to new treatments. I am so lucky to have him as a doctor.
