Dr D is AhMazing!!! I love the way she makes me and my child feel like we are her only patients. She is very caring and explains everything step by step. She lets you know what to expect even before it happens! She is very knowledgeable and listens to you and cater treatment to tailor your child's needs.

My teenage daughters have been patients of Dr. Desilva's for 8 years. I cannot imagine a better doctor for them -- she is thorough in her examinations and is a great listener. She offers strong counsel to families on how to support children who are strong in body and mind.
