Dr. Desilva is very personable and knowledgeable. He saved me from having unnecessary surgery by another doctor. His bedside manner is wonderful and he explains everything in easy to understand terms. So glad to have been referred to him. Wonderful doctor.

Dr. Desilva from the first office visit through the surgery on my paralyzed vocal chord was thorough but easy to understand. He and his staff were professionals and at the same time made sure I was comfortable with what they were recommending. The surgery was something I should have been made aware of ten years ago and had done then. I feel my suffering is now over.

Dr. deSilva is an outstanding doctor. He is very compassionate and listens to his patients issues and helps his patent. He speaks in terms that his patients can understand and goes the extra mile to focus on the issue at hand and resolve it as quick as possible without always surgery involvement. I wish all doctors had his caring ways and concern regarding the patient. He has helped me in so many ways with my issue and never has let me down and listened to my concerns!

I had flown in to Columbus for a business trip and was desperate to see and ENT. Everyone on Dr. Desilva's team was extremely courteous. They were able to fit me and treat my symptoms. I attempted to call other ENT clinics with no luck at getting in for an apt. I am very grateful to Dr. Desilva.
