What People Say About Dr. Alan Desilva, MD
Reply
I am almost 77-years old; I have lived in four different states, three countries, and a whole bunch of towns and cities. Dr. DeSilva is the best physician that I have had to date! He recognizes most of his patients by sight, listens thoughtfully to your needs and concerns, and explains issues to you in terms that you can understand. He and his staff are caring people. I was Dr. Alan DeSilva's patient for the 13 years that I lived in Hilo, and I recommend him without reservation!
