Santa Barbara, CA |
Attentive, bright, current and efficient. Highest recommendation for professionalism and client relations. Dr. DaSilva listens, understands and responds to your concerns with appropriate and knowledgeable information.
Doctor Dasilva is one of the few really "good" doctors left. She understands and continues to educate and research new treatments. After seeing over 10 specialists, we were fed up and frustrated with doctors- then doctor deailva was able to diagnose and treat my husband. She was the only one that took the time to listen.

Da Silva canceled my apptm.1/2 hour before it was scheduled today.Her reason she saw me 3 weeks ago reg.TMJ she suggested an xray but it showed nothing,she suggested to try botox which i did but got no relief and then said to reschedule if there is no improvement and to perhaps have MRI orCT scan.My left side is so bad that i can't smile anymore my jaw locks my whole left side is numb down to my neck, andI can't talk properly(feels like a stroke mouth goes to one side.What an uncaring Doctor
