Dr Silpa helped me to achieve remission of my ulcerative colitis eight years ago. Before that, I had suffered off on and on with the illness for 15 years. Through a combination of no-side-effect medications and dietary changes specifically planned by Dr Silpa, I have enjoyed a symptom-free life for the past eight years.

Yes I would recommend Dr. Sipla. He is extremely experienced in his field and knows what he's doing. He was able to provide a diagnosis and develop an effective treatment plan for me. I found him pleasant to work with and he took the time to answer my questions and explain everything very clearly. When having appointments, he was able to see me immediately at the appointed time, with no wait. Sr. Silpa was recommended by our family doctor and I would gladly recommend him to someone else.
