TUCSON |
I had double carple tunnel surgery which had more complactions than Dr. DiSilva "expected"! I'm sure he's a competent doctor, but for me I would not reccomend him.
in tucson, az |
I completely amputated my hand with a chainsaw on July 4, 2015. Dr. DeSilva was the the on-call doctor at UMC. I had no expectation other than staying alive. Dr Desilva told me no worries, he's gonna do his best to reattach my hand! Two years later I just finished a 60 mile bike race with two good hands! Every ligament, tendon, nerve, arteries, and bones in place and working great! I don't refer to Him as Dr. De Silvia! I call him Doc De Vinci... Dottore Greg è il migorle!
in Sierra Vista, AZ |
I was apprehensive and Dr. Disilva explained everything in understandable terms, including causes of the problem and treatments. He was not only concerned with my hand but also cared about my fears and concerns. I was so impressed. He seemed to be a knowledgeable, charming, intelligent and compassionate person. He even asked me if he had addressed all my concerns before I left. His nurse was engaging, competent and very interactive. The experience was pleasant.
I was not impressed. He talked me into having Injections that only alleviated the pain for a few days. I did not make a return appointment because he didn't seem open to performing the surgery I needed.
in Green Valley, AZ |
Dr. DeSilva used a conservative approach to my carpal tunnel problem and encouraged me to help decide when it was time to do surgery. I liked having a part in the decision. He was very professional during our appointments and explained the pros and cons of the surgery. His exam room was clean and neat. His assistant did the preliminary exam and also removed the stitches afterward. They worked together well as a team.
in Tucson, AZ |
Very arrogant and uninterested in my personal concerns about my hand injury. I am consulting another Dr. to get answers and proper care. I feel my hand injury could have been resolved with surgery, but I have been left with a crooked healed fracture.
in Willcox, AZ |
He was so rude and aggragant. Didn't pay attention or take notes so he completely botched the surgery then blamed me for not providing the correct information. He messed my Ulna up so bad that I have lots movement in the elbow now. The nerve damage is extensive and I am looking at least one surgery and possibly two to hopefully regain motion and cut down on pain. I may have to have the arm rebuke and another graft done to fix it. DO NOT LET THIS GUY CLOSE TO YOU!!!!
