Dr Desilva is probably the finest Dermatologist I have ever seen and I have seen many due to severe skin issues and he also has looked at my other health issues to determine the relationship of skin issues to other medical problems that I have. His overall approach to keeping me well is appreciated. He is a caring healer. BK

Excellent all the way. My kids and I have all been to see him. I have followed him no matter where he works. I am a hair stylist and refer you my clients to him as well.

Dr. DeSilva is amazing. He takes his time, explains everything, and doesn't try to "sell" you procedures or products that you really don't need (unlike some other doctors). He makes sure you're taken care of and actually asks you what YOU want, explaining all available options to you and making recommendations. He's very calm, polite, and pleasant. His staff is very friendly, too. Highly recommended dermatologist here in the San Antonio/Boerne area.

I've been going to Dr. DeSilva for about 10 years. Takes special care to catch skin problems before they become serious.
