Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. 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.

Dr DaSilva was very compassionate and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to address my treatment.

Reviewed on Jun 21, 2019

I cannot express how fantastic Dr. DaSilva is. She is truly an amazing, talented and gifted surgeon. She truly is a brilliant doctor. If more doctors were like her, I feel that people would not complain about going to the doctor. She makes you feel comfortable, she doesn't treat you like a number, she treats you like a human being who has concerns.

Reviewed on Jun 14, 2019

I absolutely am so grateful to have found Dr. Da Silva. She is caring, patient, and extremely gentle with her care. I have unfortunately seen many colorectal surgeons because of having my issues for 20 plus years and she is the best one that has treated me. I am so happy a friend recommended her and I will make sure to recommend her to others.

Originally I requested an appointment through the My Portal option and they advised Dr. DaSilva was not available until July. When I called, the representative was able to find me an appointment that same week, I was very pleased.

Reviewed on Jun 12, 2019

Dr. DaSilva has such great bedside manner and really exudes her care and passion for her field. She makes you feel extremely comforting, verbally and physically, she explains everything in detail as she goes through her examination and ensures you are okay every step of the way. She is not quick to throw a prescription medicine at you, which I appreciate. She offers life style changes and more over the counter supplements you can take to try to combat the issue you may be facing in your gastro/colon rectal areas. I highly recommend Dr. DaSilva, without a doubt, to anyone who needs to see a colon rectal doctor in South Florida.

Provider could have been more thorough with explaining diagnosis and treatment options; however, I had the opportunity to speak to the provider via phone after the office visit and all my questions were answered. Phone conversation gave me a better understanding of condition and treatment options.
