Kingston, RI |
I've had 2 surgeries for Dupytren's contracture performed by Dr. Dasilva. He is caring, attentive, and answers questions patiently and in lay terms. His PA, Paul Ramos, is also excellent. Hand therapist Geraldine Racette works well with the doctors, and the experience feels like an integrated team approach. I have recommended Dr. Dasilva to several others who have also had positive experiences with him. Should I need further surgery, I will be back!
Providence, RI |
I have had 4 surgeries performed by Dr DaSilva and have been very pleased with the whole process. He and his staff have been wonderful. I have recommended him to family and friends.
East Providence, RI |
Dr Dasilva is a great guy and very respectful. He did two of my surgeries for me. Lisa at the front desk is a great positive women who is the right person for the job. However, as I've seen people post on here already; his assistant Paul is very rude and disrespectful, and this is very true. I will not allow him back in my room for any reason next time i go.
in Warwick, RI |
To Dr. DeSilva, Dr. Ramos, and entire staff who contributed to my care in any way. Thank You! The education about my shoulder and x-rays Dr. Ramos showed, and explained to me how my surgery would go... is a good practice. The professional care I received throughout my surgery and post care was excellent. My recovery time was quick thanks to all.

in Coventry, RI |
From the time I visited Dr. DaSilva's office about my left distal bicep tendon tear, the entire office was an absolute pleasure to work with. They were very attentive to the time constraints that I was under due to my job, and were willing to work with me to get the surgery and healing process under way as quickly as possible. Scheduling was a wonderful process, and they were always able to put me at ease with any concerns I had throughout the entire process.

Dr. Dasilva fixed my sons elbow. He did a great job on the surgery. He took time explaining the procedure. My son is an athlete and he is back on the ice with in 4 months. We are so grateful for his expert work on my son.
in Barrington, R.I |
He is a god sin, I would definitely refer him to anyone who has pain. He also has a very good bedside manor with his patients. During my surgeries that I have had with Dr. Dasilva, the medical team was outstanding! I have never felt better and it was all thanks to him and his wonderful staff
in Warwick, RI |
My experience with Dr Dasilva and his entire staff was impressive. They made me feel comfortable and confident in the suggested treatment which was surgery. I am so grateful for how they worked with me to schedule my surgery and what I was to do step by step post op. They are a top notch team that I have suggested to family members who have had surgery and are scheduled for surgery. Most of all, I am free of pain that I had suffered with for over a year! Thank you Dr.Dasilva!
East Greenwich, RI |
Dr Dasilva did a saphoid fracture repair in my wrist. To say I had a great experience is an understatement, everything from the diagnosis, treatment recommendations, surgery, post op care and hand therapy has been fantastic. Dr Dasilva and his staff treated me as an individual with my best interests in mind and the repair turned out fantastic, I barely have a scar despite the hardware that was placed. If I could give 10 stars I would!

I have treated with dr DASILVA and his assistant for chronic wrist tendonitis after my daughter was born without having surgery. Although I'm sure if I needed surgery I would have the utmost confidence in having surgery with them.

Easy, helpful, friendly

Surgery went well and was not as bad as I had expected! Followed Dr Dasilva's instructions to the tee. Started and committed myself to the physical therapy after about 4 weeks from surgery and have progressed quite well! Overall I was very happy with the surgery and it's results!~ feeling great and looking forward to resuming normal activities! Thank you Dr Dasilva and your staff, especially his PA Mark, who was helpful in my post surgery recovery!
in Cranston, RI |
Everyone at the office was exceptional, Lisa the surgical coordinator was always there to answer any questions. Dr. Dasilva and his staff were over the top concerning all phases of my hand surgery. I strongly recommend Dr. Dasilva.
in Cumberland, RI |
Dr DaSilva fixed my carpal tunnel which was bothering me for years. The surgery was quick and easy and the recovery was very quick. These guys are the best.

I had my rotator cuff repaired years ago by dr dasilva and have been great ever since. I have also seen them for other issues always with good results.
in East Greenwich, RI |
Kept me waiting for 30 minutes in an exam room, when I flagged down the staff they told me it would be at least another hour. No claim of an emergency, no apologies. The women who work in this office, who are as rude as I've ever encountered in health care, said, "We don't care, leave." A God complex that I though went out in the 80s. I'd go to a veterinarian before I returned to him. I would never trust him post-op.
in Cranston, RI |
I have been coming to Dr. DaSilva for over 15 years. The office staff is always amazing. Dr. DaSilva has literally saved my wrists! I have recommended him to all my family and friends! I trust him completely, as he is extremely knowledgeable and skilled in his area of expertise and always looks for the best, least invasive, most effective procedures and treatments for whatever is causing me pain and discomfort.
in Warwick, RI |
I have seen multiple orthopedic surgeons over the years and Dr Dasilva is the best wouldn't go anywhere else. He has a great staff, including his assistant Paul, who I choose to see most of the time in the office. The two of them work great together, Dr Dasilva has done multiple surgeries on my arms and I've recovered completely from them all. Also has great therapist, xray people and other staff.
Boston, MA |
It is not so much the doctor. It is his assistant Paul who sees his patients when not available. Paul is rude and not compassionate. He made me feel like after my procedure I was fine and had an attitude about my complaints of pain and compared me to others who go to work the day after having stitches removed. It was like ok surgery is done goodbye. Like if I just left a restaurant ...
