Patient Comments (15)
in Blythewood, SC |
I have been a patient of Dr. DaSilva's for approximately 25 years and he has performed numerous knee surgeries and a foot operation. I had a total knee replacement 10 years ago and it has performed flawlessly. Dr. DaSilva took the time to ask what my goals and activities were before the replacement which helped greatly. I am very active and Dr. DaSilva keeps me that way. Dr. DaSilva is not only my care provider but is my friend and I constantly recommend him to all my friends.

Dr. DaSilva recently performed my shoulder surgery. He has also performed other surgeries for me from sports injuries in the past. I would not want to go to any other doctor. He is professional, knowledgeable, straightforward, and I trust his decisions. The staff in the offices and the surgery center are also very friendly. They all make a "not so pleasant experience" from being injured or in pain, as pleasant as possible. Thank you to Dr. DaSilva and his staff.
Cayce, SC |
Very poor Dr he had no interest in my injury the MRI showed I had a tear he said a bruise and told me to go straight back to work and forget about the pain. Have to check out Dr guy at usc now and get another check
in Columbia, SC |
Dr. DaSilva is a pleasant person. He answers your questions. The only problem is that some appts. are scheduled for only 5 mins., therefore, he is rushed.
in summerton, South Carolina |
He absolutely does not deserve a 2.6 star rating. Took plenty of time to explain everything to me The nursing staff and front end was fabulous.
in Columbia SC |
Very compassionate, direct physician. He has operated on me 3 times including a total joint replacement. Mother had bilateral joint replacements 15 years ago and still going strong at 82
Elgin, SC |
Wife suffering from what appears to be a cervical spine/nerve impingement. Doctor treating it like tendinitis. After forcing the issue over 8 weeks Doctor orders an MRI of her arm and doesn't even consider a spine nerve impingement. Schedules at Monday morning follow up at 9:30 and still has not called us back to be seen and it is now 11:15. Very poor planning and preparation.
Columbia, SC |
Dr. DaSilva is the rudest and most uncaring Doctor ever. Spent two minutes to tell me there was nothing wrong, when I clearly had some issues. I just love paying somebody to say something I could tell my friend. Didn't ask for questions or concerns and just dismissed me. Don't ever go to him.
Columbia, SC |
I would never refer or revisit Dr. Dasilva. Spent almost two hours there just for him to only see me for two minutes. Not even sure if he actually looked at my MRI results or profile. I've gotten better courtesy at a fast food drive thru.
in Columbia, SC |
Dr. DaSilva is a gifted surgeon and has a wonderful protocol for post-op care. I had an absolutely great outcome. My knee is better than ever.
in Cope, Sc. |
Dr.dasilva took case of my tear in my Meniscus, every thing was exellent, him and all of his staff were very professional at all times! Would recomend him and will see him again when and he is needed.
in Columbia, SC |
First impressions are important. The lady at the front desk had an unpleasant attitude. The tone of her voice was harsh. She has no personality and no customer service skills. I'm not sure if Dr. DaSilva read my MRI. My visit with him was less than 3 minutes. He walked in, touched my leg, and wrote a prescription. He did not review the results of the MRI or x-rays with me. He did not discuss what he thought my issue was or any treatment with me---unprofessional. Will not return.
in Columbia, SC |
I can't believe he spent all of 3 minutes in the room to tell me nothing. You acted like you didn't even want to examine me in the first place so I'm not sure what the hell that was about. Now I see why they're so many negative comments regarding you because I saw for myself. My primary doctor took more time with me and she's not a specialist with this type of injury but obviously neither are you. Waste of damn time and sad to know people you're getting paid for not doing a damn thing!
