My husband was in the hospital for two days until he came to see him. Then, he seemed bothered by my questions, gave us a very catastrophic diagnosis with only an ultrasound which probed later to be wrong after we asked for a second opinion and he got a cath scan.

Dr Silva has the WORST practice. *AVOID THIS DOCTOR AT ALL COSTS! My husband was seen for the first time & diagnosed with A-Fib & put on strong medication. After 2 days his blood pressure plummeted and stayed low for 2 days (70/50). We tried to call the office for 2 straight days without anyone...more
