    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Here is that rare doctor who tells you the truth, speaks to you like you're an intelligent human being and has a sense of humor. He truly cares about his patients and what's best for them. Doesn't do or send for tests that are not necessary.

Patient

Horrible doctor! Condescending attitude and belittles the patient. Even the way he talks to his own staff is belittling. Needs to get rid of his God complex and may not be so bad.

Outstanding Doctor

I've had Dr Silva as a Doctor for 18+ years. In my opinion it would be difficult to find another physician with his knowledge. His manner is assuring and pleasant. In short I feel very fortunate to have a Doctor of this caliber.
