Dr De Silva is a great doctor and very thorough. However, the front staff is rude and not welcoming. They told me my appointment was cancelled and that I was called several times. I have no missed phone calls on my caller ID or any answering machine messages that I was supposedly left. There was no emphatic response but that I called and oh well. It was pretty much that's it, deal with it. Rude and no customer service.
I waited a month for my appointment with Dr. De Silva. His secretary called me the morning of the appointment to tell me he called out and my appointment was canceled. Then proceeded to tell me the soonest he could reschedule was next month. Complete rubbish, extreme lack of professionalism. Will not be returning.

Nurses are rude and so is there answering service. I've called them 3 times a day to schedule an appt. and each time I'm told there closed. 10 am there closed, then there closed from 1230 - 2 pm. I call at 4:40 wait on hold for 15 min and then I'm told again here closed.

Hard to leave a message much less get a return phone call

Dr. DeSilva is caring and compassionate with not only my Mom, who is his patient, but with me as her daughter and caregiver. He takes the time to listen and he explains everything with patience, allowing questions to be asked. I highly recommend him!

Staff is cold and unwelcoming. They do not make reminder phone calls for appointments, and often I would get there and find out my appointment had not been scheduled for the time I asked for and had to wait for up to an hour. I left an urgent message on his secretary's voicemail, called back a week and a half later and was told, Well, we just put your message into the computer. If he doesn't see it, there's nothing we can do about it. It's been a month, and I still haven't heard anything.

Would not listen to my concerns. Would not provide any helpful information regarding my condition. I was assigned him - worthless! That is why he specializes in Alzheimer's patients because they are unable to complain about his crummy service and attitude. A waste of my time and money. Further, he blatantly lied to me regarding an MRI and refused to provide medical treatment when requested.
