    Dr. Silva is a caring physician. He smiles and makes you feel comfortable. Unfortunately, the office team at Dr. Gentile’s office where he practices twice a week, are not reliable. . I requested a copy of the progress notes and tests je of December 8 and also to talk to the doctor about a new prescribed eye drop and never received a response. . I believe that Dr. Silva is unaware of the damage the office team did to our patient doctor relationship. Sorry Dr. Silva! I will recommend him as a good doctor but in a different office where he practices.
