Dr. Manuel DaSilva Comments Would Recommend
Great doctor and great personality with great bed side manners. 100%
Dr. DaSilva, PA Paul Ramos, PT Nora Kinslow, & all staff have all been EXCELLENT!!! I could not have asked for a better team to help me. 100%
Dr. DaSilva is the best Doctor around, he operated in my shoulder, elbow and wrist with great success. I highly recommend him. 100%
Excellent Doctor friendly and very easy to talk 100%
Very pleasant experience 100%
First I was told my appointment was in east Greenwich and when I arrived there I was told my appointment was in East Providence. When I made the appointment I specifically said I would like to go to east Greenwich because I live in Warwick. When I got to East Providence I was confused what floor because there was no dr directory. I waited for less that 5 mins to be seen. But when I was in the room dr dasilva PA came in and was nice. After dr dasilva came in it all went down hill. I was shocked as to how rude he was to me. His bed side manner was absolutely horrible. I told him my insurance denied my mri and he told me “well that’s too bad”. All his questions to me came with an attitude. I was mortified when I left his office and almost in tears. I will never come back to this office and definitely will not recommend dr dasilva to anyone! 0%
Excellent Doctor and person!! 100%
I can’t begin to tell you how disappointed I was with his lack of concern with my shoulder. Basically told me my shoulder is worn out and nothing he could do . I came into the visit with optimism about coming out of it with options, received none ! I wasted my time and a $60 copay . He basically read me the radiologist report which I already knew extremely disappointed and obviously never going back 0%
He was arrogant, impatient, impersonable. I felt he could care less about me as a patient. This was a surprise to me because 2 other doctors I have seen in the practice have been wonderful. I’m fact, the other dr. Dr. Ramos In the room during this discussion with Dr. DaSilva I met with several weeks ago and I couldn’t have had a better experience. 0%
Dr. Dasilva took his time with me and explained everything to me in a way that I could understand. He treated me for my condition himself and made me feel very comfortable and explained what he was going to do and why. He made me feel like he was a friend of mine that was a doctor that I had known for a long time. 100%
I am very satisfied with Dr. Da Silva. 100%

Dr DaSilva and Paul are very good. I would like to thank the person who was very pleasant and patient with me and getting me to the building because I forgot the directions. She was great!

90%

The nurse was a bit short and would get annoyed when I didn't understand her intake questions. She never provided any direction on how to answer them i.e. "Pain?" Me: "Starts in the shoulder and radiates down‐" Nurse‐ "NO on a scale of 1‐10?"

80%
Excellent patient care. Thank you!!! 100%
Keep up the great work and Happy Birthday!! 100%
Excellent!! 100%
Thank you. 100%

The problem was not with the doctor. I didn't like I was treated by the first person that brings you from the lobby to the office and back. She hadn't any patient with me. She had poor greetings and communication style. Overall, I felt rushed in and out.

80%
His care and understanding of my orthopedic needs have always been met 100%

The doctor seemed set on general anesthesia, and likely invasive surgery although would try non‐ invasive. I got a second opinion where general anesthesia was not the method used, and a non‐invasive procedure would be used.

50%
Dr.DaSilva is very professional akknowledgeable 90%
He was very personable and made me feel great about my upcoming surgery. I feel relaxed and confident in dr.dasilva.i am so happy he is doing my surgery! 100%
Dr. Da Silva was really great explained everything to us. Gave us his recommendations on what he thought needed to be done. But the other Dr. That came in prior to Dr. Da Silva was extremely rude! I asked a question on the best way to dress my father not to hurt him. He responds I see this everyday I know how people get dressed! Not what I asked at all!He asked who referred you?!I stated Dr. Ramos He then states that's my cousin, don't talk negative about him! When all I simply did was simply answer his question, with Dr. Ramos.Really hope we don't need to deal with this guy on the next visit. I definitely won't be so pleasant. 80%
Dr.DaSilva was pleasant enough, but since I was in severe pain from a shoulder dislocation, a smile might go a long way. One question to me was "why are you still wearing that sling?" I told him MD's at RIH told me to wear it until I saw my PCP. His reply was take it off immediately. Thank God my husband was there with me to help me. 50%
I left the office unsure of what my condition was. He was very pleasant and had a good bedside manor, but he needs to explain things
better
90%
I felt a bit rushed, mostly by the nurse who took my health history just before Dr daSilva come in. I did not feel she listened completely to make corrections in my medication list, almost interipting me. Dr DaSilva explained options to me, as always. It may have just been a very busy day, but he seemed to leave the exam room a bit hastily. I understand that insurance controls how long some docs are able to spend with patients. That may be the case also. I have NEVER felt rushed before. 100%
It was a short wait everything was discussed and I love the view and I’ll see you soon 100%
Competent and courteous. Responded to my problem. 90%
Warm and friendly and understanding. Talked to me on my level. 100%

Made no effort to obtain or review imaging he ordered but was obtained from an outside provider; overly invested in the use of Univ Ortho radiologic services to the detriment of clinical service.

0%
It was an emergency visit and the staff was very considerate to accommodate me on the same day. Other options were almost a week away. I am so much better and can move my hand and hope more improvement within the next week. Dr. daSilva gave me a cortisone injection on the infected area and this morning I felt so much better compared to the previous 2 nights that I could hardly sleep. Thank You! 100%
Loved everything about the Dr. and staff that i encountered during my visit. 100%

I am very grateful for Dr. DaSilva’ knowledge and expertise. He addressed my problem and provided the necessary medications to help me feel better. My hand hasn’t felt this good in over 3 years. Thank you Dr. DaSilva!

100%
More info about use of ice/heat or not needed since shots were admin in different location and hurt more. Any restriction on activity or move to get meds in after shot. I should have asked him about meds in shot also. Very nice bedside manner. 100%
During my visit I first saw Dr. Lee who I liked very much. He was personable and friendly. I am assuming he is in training with Dr. DaSilva
and I wish him good luck in the future.
80%
I was more confident about my decision to have the surgery after this visit 100%

compassionate.Paul Ramos is also wonderful! Maria ﴾ schedule coordinator is pleasant,and very good at her position﴿ fantastic team!

Only send him a couple of times for a couple of minutes each 70%
Very comfortable bedside manner. 100%
Great doctor 100%
In addition to Dr. DaSilva, Paul Ramos was, as usual, very informative, offering detailed, yet understandable information about my current problem and answering questions. I was also attended by another young doctor who did the initial intake. He was also very helpful. Overall a very positive experience 100%
As with my previous visits with Dr.DaSilva, I have always been treated with excellent care.Helped me know what was going on with my condition. Provided me with follow up testing done thru his supporting staff and was contacted within 24hrs of where I would be going for these tests. VERY reassuring of his care for his patients. 100%

This wax the first time I met Dr DaSilva. He's such a great doctor. He was so helpful. The doctor gave me an injection of cortisone in my elbow and I didn't feel a thing. He's awesome.

100%
Very knowledgeable and is responsible for fixing my broken hand, allowing me to use it again 90%

I basically saw PA. Was given cortisone injection again. It did not go well although PA was very good. My hand is worse off a week later. Not confidence inspiring for surgery.

80%
Dr DaSilva was great! The receptionist was great my X‐ray tech was great! the only complaint I have is from the girl who took all my information on a computer when I was in the exam room .. she had dark hair I don’t recall her name ... she was not pleasant at all, she made me feel very uncomfortable and rushed and was very condesending. Maybe she was having a bad day that day but she was not very nice very abrupt like I was bothering her! I wish I remembered her name. But everyone else was amazing in the office . 100%
Actually, most of the personal service was rendered by his PA, who was excellent. 60%
Me gusto fue preciso y explicó que hacer en el futuro 100%
No complaints. 100%
Not only is Dr. DaSilva fantastic, but so is the staff. Everyone treats you with respect and care. The wait was not long at all. 100%
Very pleased with my visit to Dr DaSilva 90%

I felt rushed, and basically told what I already knew,that I upset the joint and caused it to flame up...I would have felt better I'd he explained why it happened maybe went over some strengthening exercises....just felt like I was an inconvenience
