After 5 months of fighting with my pediatrician as my 1-yr old son suffered through 8 ear infections (the ped denied my request for referral to a specialist), I finally took my son to see Dr. Silva -who was recommended by several people in my ped's waiting room. He was wonderful and his bed-side manner was so great with my child. Dr. Silva immediately saw that my son had another ear infection (even though I had just come from my ped 2 hours prior- and they said he didn't have one). Dr. Silva review my son's medical history, we discussed options, and then decided to schedule him for ear tubes the next week. Thank goodness we did...Dr. Silva took a culture while in surgery and turns out my son had an infection that was resistent to most antibiotics so it would never have cleared with the standard antibiotics we had been giving him until that point. My son hasn't been sick in over 6 months and I couldn't be happier. Thank you, Dr. Silva!
