Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Excellent doctor

Giovanna DaSilva saved my daughter's life 2.5 years ago (Stage 2 colon cancer). The surgery was just before Thanksgiving. Dr. DaSilva was off duty on Thanksgiving, but she called my daughter in her hospital room to check up on her. NO DOCTOR DOES THAT! I went to Dr. DaSilva for my routine colonoscopy 14 months ago, because my previous gastroenterologist complained that my diverticulosis was too much work for him to deal with. She had no problem with it. This last appointment that I had with Dr. DaSilva was for some intestinal problems. She spent a lot of time with me, ordered up tests, and arranged for me to see a gastroenterologist next month. She also requested that I contact her in two weeks to report on my progress with the medications she prescribed. In short, I cannot praise this doctor enough!

To date, all interactions with support staff has been positive. Dr. Da Silva is an excellent physician. Her bedside manner is old school, something that's lacking in many physicians of her age and experience. She's definitely a '10'.
