Dr. Carlos Silva and his team are absolutely fantastic. He's a Top Doctor in Hampton Roads, which means other doctors say they'd go to him if they needed his specialty. He was able to diagnose and successfully treat a friend and my husband who were having problems other doctors had missed for months or even years. In my husband's case he'd been misdiagnosed by doctors for about 15 yrs, and was only getting worse. Dr. Silva is a doc u definitely want on ur case.

Dr Silva was the best there is in the area. But he will no longer see his old patients no matter how long he has treated them nor how sick they are. He prefers to spend his time with new patients and hand off his old patients to a PA.

My father saw this doctor. I am trying to review him where ever I can. He was horrendous in patient we'll being. My father has lung problems and we didn't get anywhere with him. His treatments did not do anything to better the situation. I don't want to leave personal details but let's just say after we left him we got different answers elsewhere but then it was to late. Leave his practice if you can or do not see him at all.

Horrible lazy staff but great physician. It's unfortunate to find a new doctor but every single thing is wrong with this office except the doctor himself. I have never seen anything like it. My care was in jepordary and it only got worse relying on his staff. They followed through with absolutely nothing they were suppose to do. Even down to not calling in Rx or scheduling tests the dr ordered. To scary to put my health in even more risk.

When I first went into the office I felt a little apprehensive because I had went from doctor to doctor trying to figure out what was going on with me. The office staff was wonderful and the whole process was done with ease. Dr. Silva made me feel very comfortable and he did not rush me out without hearing my concerns, and he gave me hope. I came in feeling vulnerable and deflated and left feeling motivated. Thanks Dr. Silva

Dr. Silva is an excellent doctor who takes good care of his patients. He is very kind and answers any and all questions. There's sometimes a wait to see him, but that's every doctor's office. I don't mind waiting to see him. He is the best of the best in Hampton Roads!

Dr. Silva appears to have a good bedside manner however, his staff is unprofessional and "very" unorganized. In my eyes, your staff is a reflection of yourself. I would NOT recommend anyone to this practice. If I could rate no stars, I would.

Dr. Silva, professional and compassionate. Billing procedures, severely lacking. I pd. copays at each visit and yet received a $17 invoice. I called the office to pay and was told I had to contact billing at Patient First. I called. They had no record of my owing anything. I called Silva's office back they said wait to see if I get a bill. None came. 4 mos. later I got notice FROM A COLLECTION AGENCY. Silva's office manager ignored all of my calls refusing to even speak with me. BBB is next.

I would not recommend Dr. Silva and am quite surprised to see this high rating for him. When I share my experience with others, and they ask who the doctor was, there seems to be a universal disapproval of this doctor. I would be very careful sending a loved one to him or going yourself. He doesn't respond when on call either and has allowed my Steroids to lapse, sending me to the ER twice, the second time to ICU with acute adrenal failure - and I am only 52!
