Dr. Errajith B De Silva has the following 2 specialties
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

I saw him following my sleep study. Within two minutes he asked me if I was depressed and before I could answer, he answered his own question by declaring I was depressed. Nothing can be further from truth! He asked many inappropriate questions and was very wired. I found him to be arrogant. He declared that if I do not go on CPAP, I will die. Nothing he said made any sense so I saw two other sleep apnea specialists following my visit - one at Pomona Valley , Clairmont and the other at USC. Neither one recommended CPAP machine. I was specially very impressed by USC doctor who was extremely knowledgeable.I am glad that I did not continue seeing Dr De Silva or took his advise and I do not use CPAP and am still alive in better health than ever.
To anyone who is thinking about seeing this doctor, PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS GUY!! Please do not make the same mistake I did. When I went to see him I was hoping Dr Silva would be a great doctor. Little did I know how wrong that turned out to be. He is incredibly arrogant, rude, downright pushy and mean. I was shocked by his unprofessional behavior. He was asking too many personal questions with a smirk on his face. When I told him I was uncomfortable by his line of questioning, he just laughed it off. He did not seem interested in answering any of my questions. When I came out of this office I felt completely disrespected. He has absolutely no bedside manners and he was acting like a schoolyard bully. To anyone who is thinking about seeing this doctor, take it from me, you do not want to waste your time. Especially when you have tons of other options. If you do a simple google search you will know what I am talking about. Dr Silva is unprofessional, unethical, utterly incompetent and does not have the social skills to be a decent human being. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GUY!! you have been warned.
Outstanding doctor! I never felt rushed with my questions and Dr. DeSilva explained, in simple terms, how my results could affect my symptoms be alieviated. His sleep Technologist was incredible too. Rooms a lot better than Hoag Hospital. Private bathroom and outstanding, relaxing setting. Would recommend to everyone.
Pushy, arrogant, and weird. I'm so upset I can't even think what to say. The most unpleasant doctor I have ever met. Pushing harsh and unnecessary measures off on patient and family members. This doctor really knows how to make a horrible situation worse. No compassion or bed-side manner--or human skills. I agree w/ the earlier review that was unfavorable.
