Dr Silva is fantastic

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

outstanding

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Everyone made me feel welcome. Dr. Silva reassured me through careful testing and follow-up that my concern of a bleed in the back of my iris was not serious. I had two appointments with him, and this was the follow up to see if the lesion was still there and it wasn't.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Dr. Silva is truly the best provider I've ever experienced. His compassion along with knowledge of my condition was outstanding! He went above and beyond to accommodate my urgent visit as I live 3 hours away and he made sure to tend to my condition. I know he truly had my best interests at heart.

D. Silva is a very caring physician. He truly has the best interest in his patients. He has been treating my eye condition for over two years now. Also, his MA is the greatest Nita.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Dr. Silva is a true professional! Talent and expertise and "human." Greatly respected & appreciated.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. Silva is the best!

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Doctor Silva always nice and showing care

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Very Good

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

an excellent physician

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Doctor was warm, friendly, apologetic about the delay. Clear explanations of what was wrong with my eyes.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Kind of rushed this time.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr. Silva is amazing. He clearly knows his area of medicine very deeply and shares this detailed knowledge in a caring and approachable manner. I really felt confident that he was the best possible doctor I could see for my issue, and that everything we talked about was being explored and resolved fully. At my two visits, Dr. Silva listened to my descriptions of what was happening and laid out a few options for how to proceed. I never felt rushed as we chatted. I'm so glad my issue is resolved but wouldn't hesitate to return if I ever felt it was needed - I'm almost sad I won't need to see him again because he's such a fantastic doctor! I'm very grateful to the whole Byers Clinic team for my two productive visits - thank you!

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

I liked everything very good how they attend me.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Doctor Silva is very nice and very good doctor. No complaint here

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Dr. Silva is very efficient and informative.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

I feel that Dr. Silva really cares about his patients. He always explains to me what the next step is in my treatment plan. I have been getting eye injections for almost two years now. This is not a very fun thing, but Dr. Silva always manages to keep me calm. Very caring doctor. I have seen many of the retina specialists in the clinic but I can say that Dr. Silva is the best doctor

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Love Dr. Silva, love Dr. Karin.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

best eye specialist I have ever had!

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Dr Silva is top notch. I would highly recommend him to everyone. He is obviously a very intelligent man but he is also very warm, friendly and humble. I fully trust him. Another excellent experience.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

I had asked the provider to complete a health form which took a long time to return.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

The care provider was not helpful, in some ways a little uncaring at times as to my issues with my vision impairment. To me, if a patient tells you he can't see or having difficulty seeing, don't simply ignore his statements as insignificant; whereas, it's the opposite.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Dr Silva is a first class doctor and ensures that I understands the problem and treatment.I hold him in the highest regard

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

I have been a patient with Dr. Silva for almost 2 years now, with very complex eye problems. Dr. Silva always takes the time to go over things that are going on with my eyes with me and my husband. He is very knowledgeable and is upfront with me and I feel that his best interest is my eyesight being saved

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Highly recommend.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Beyond Outstanding! Dr. Silva was phenomenal, in my humble opinion. : )

SHC Patient, May 2018

Sr Silva is great. The staff is kind and professional.

SHC Patient, May 2018

I have the utmost trust in Dr. Silva and his support staff. he has taken all the time necessary to explain my condition and treatment plan including medications to my wife and me.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr. Sliva, did explain everything to me and my husband regarding my current treatment plan. Very knowledgeable and I feel very confident in his treatment plan of approach.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr. Silva was extremely knowledgeable and I was confident in his abilities. I only felt that he was rushed.

SHC Patient, May 2018

doesn't mind if I ask for a repeat explanation or additional clarification

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

I understand Dr Silva is a very renowned doctor. I had the impression that he was not overly warm, but certainly he said all the right things and was extremely professional. Even if he wasn't the friendliest doctor I have seen at Stanford, I have confidence in him and would return to him.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

great Doctor!

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Silva was extremely articulate and I understood everything he said

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Very professional staff. Very good experience.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Silva demonstrates both competence and care. He shows concern for the immediate problem and anticipates so that we can be proactive relative to future issues. I am very lucky to have him as my physician.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Silva very, very good person & doctor. Warm personality & very professional. I could see that he is very imp. in office & is most likely overwhelmed w/pts. because he's great! Some can even be jealous of him.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Explains treatment plan step by step, warm bedside manner, listens patiently.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

From the same day surgery by Dr Silva and Dr Theng at the hospital after the diagnosis of the torn retina all has been simply amazing. Even during the surgery Dr Silva made teaching comments to the Fellow. Dr Silva and the work he does saving peoples eyesight is awesome. He is terribly busy but for a good reason...he knows what he is doing.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Silva is a first class specialist & has been responsible for stabilizing my eye problem & restoring some vision!

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr Silva and his MA were brilliant. Very caring thoughtful and clear. I had to do a very unpleasant eye exam and it turned out to be the most pleasant eye exam of this type I have ever had.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

dr Silva was an amazing guy. Very caring and great bedside manner. He made it a great experience even though the treatment and exam was a bit torturous. I was comfortable putting my full trust in him even though i had just met him.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

A caring functional compassionate physician... time to explain in detail and for reassurance.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr. Silva Amila Ruwan. He is the best he did a great job.

I am very satisfied with her

Dr. Silva is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He always takes the time to explain to me what is going on with my eyes, as I have significate eye problems. If any of my friends need a retina doctor I will recommend him.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Doctor Silva is very good, nice.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr. Silva is a very compassionate doctor. I have been seeing Dr. Silva for over a year now with my eye condition. He is a very caring doctor.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

This was my second appt (annual) with Dr. Silva and both times he was very through, attentive, effective and efficient. He covered most of my areas of concern and or where I had questions prior to me even asking about them. He was direct and provided follow on recommendations. He is a high quality value add provider, as well as, seems to be a great overall person.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr. Silva and his team are very knowledgeable, respectful, kind, explain things well and are caring. I'm sure my condition would have bothered me much more without the trust their care has instilled in me.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

feel confident about Silva competence

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

great experience with everyone

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr. Silva was efficient and informative. I hadn't seen an ophthalmologist in 10 years, and he explained my examination very well.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr. Silva is a very patient and caring Physician. He is very concerned about my eye problems that I have. Great doctor and would recommend him to any of my friends and family

I trust Dr Silva

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Very good experience.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr. Silva, is a great doctor, I have been dealing with my eye problems for over a year now getting eye injections on monthly bases. He explains everything and is a caring doctor.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

This was the first time I saw Dr. Silva and I was very impressed by his knowledge and his humility. He took his time to answer all my questions and he was very easy to talk to.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Good

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Always received past treatment, current plan and future expectations.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Dr. Silva is the best possible; an exemplary doctor in every way. I am so lucky to have him as my retina doctor.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I am thankful for Dr. Silva. His care and explanation of my eye condition is very much appreciated.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Very good.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I like the way that Dr. Silva has out layed my treatment plan. He treats very aggressively which is great.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Very descriptive and helpful in answering questions

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I love that Dr. Sylvia had a scribe in the room so that he could give me his full attention and dictate his findings to the scribe/assistant.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I really appreciated how they got me in for additional screening on my initial visit and then combined the next visit to include 2 screenings. Very considerate of my time.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

I have confidence in Dr. Ruwan Silva.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Felt like the doctor knew exactly what the problem was, explained things very well in a way that was simple to understand. My first impression was that this was a very skillfull and talented doctor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Dr Silva has a nice manner and a pleasant sense of humor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Dr. Silva seemed to be under pressure to get this visit done. There was a scribe and he went right for the eyes and slit lamp exam. Wham bam exam done. I meant to ask several things but did not have time to do that. Out I went after only a few minutes. I did have a wonderful technician who did measurements of my eye and put the drops in. I don't remember her name but she was very capable and vey professional, yet concerned and listened, gave me time to ask and answer information.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Dr. Silva in a 1st class physician who has been instrumental in improving the sight in my right eye following a stroke in the eye -

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

no problems or concerns, everyone did their part.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. Silva inspires confidence in me. With his care and a little luck, my eye may regain all its sight.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. Silva is very professional. He checked my condition carefully. I would highly recommend him to other people!

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. Sliva is a very caring doctor, he is always patient with me. As getting eye injections is not my favorite thing. The one thing that he said just recently at my visit was that this was the first time that my left eye looked good.

SHC Patient, May 2017

The principal goal in this exam was a retinal scan. I have diabetes and do not wish to go blind! The physician's assistant who did the preliminary test for glaucoma etc. and who did the scan was very professional and Dr. Silva was excellent.

SHC Patient, May 2017

I appreciate that Dr. Silva didn't "write-off" an issue I experienced between visits with my eyes and referred me to a neuro opthamalogist. He did not make me feel worried about it but wanted to ensure a thorough investigation of what I experienced.

SHC Patient, May 2017

Dr Silvia is very competent and I trust his judgement

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Thank you Dr Silva and every bodies

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Very caring and professional doctor. Very happy with the overall experience

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Dr. Silva is an amazing doctor. he has taken very good care of me and my eyesight.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Dr Silva is one of the best doctors I have ever seen in 10 years of me being a patient at Stanford

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Dr. Silva is the best! He does everything right and communicates very well.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

GOOD!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Very experienced and competent.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

dr Ruwan is fantastic

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Silvia is a caring, knowledgeable, and professional physician. Great experience at his clinic. Highly recommend him.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Wonderful doctor!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

All of the acted in very professional way and friendly.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

If only every doctor was like Dr. Silva

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

I felt there's a (rush) when I was seen, I forgot to ask my oher question

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. Silva is fabulous--explains everything clearly while taking his time even though he is very busy--.always in an "upbeat" mood!!

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. Silva was very professional, pleasant and efficient. He summarized his findings clearly, and indicated yearly followup with my primary ophthalmologist was prudent and would be all that was necessary at this time. He was courteous and clearly highly proficient in his specialty. I would have no reservations in having him treat me in the future if my situation changed.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Keep up the good work.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Physician seemed rushed. I had more questions, but he was in a hurry to leave. He didn't spend much time with me to answer questions, only to do exam. Visit felt rushed. Follow up instructions were not clear to me. He told me what to if I had increased symptoms, but not that he wanted to see me in follow up.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Great

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

The staff in the Opthalmology Center was welcoming, polite, professional and knowledgeable. I was disappointed in Dr. Silva. The man is robotic. He gave me an opportunity to ask questions but did not listen to what they were. I felt he was in a rush. He made me uncomfortable. I felt like I should apologize for taking up his time. I am a RN who has worked with literally hundreds of doctors. I was a clinic manager for over 20 years. Part of my job was to instruct new residents on how to make a patient feel comfortable and respected. I will continue to use Stanford Medical and see the specialist Dr. Silva recommended I see. But for general ophthalmology I will see another physician. I hope this will be helpful to Dr. Silva. My guess is he probably is a skilled doctor who needs to polish his communication skills.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr Silva is fantastic :)

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

excellent care provider, so professional .

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Excellent in all respects.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Could hardly have been in more of a hurry. In and out. Gave information. Answered questions. Clearly under pressure to keep rolling.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

The doctor showed good bedside manner, took the time to read the history of my visits to the clinic, asked questions for clarification and performed the examination. I don't know if the fact that he was a retina specialist made any difference in the exam that he performed.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

I appreciate the effort staff & Dr. Silva put forth when I came to the clinic.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

I (we) have MANY care providers. All are generally trustworthy, but some are just "better' in terms of our feeling that they are the best possible, than others.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Knowledgeable, competent, in A RUSH. No time for questions. Spent maybe 5-7 minutes with me.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Silva is "tops!!"

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Silva is an extraordinary physician expertise wise and has stupendous interpersonal skills. As the author of "The Communication Problem Solver" (AMACOM NY), I'm very attuned to people's communication. Dr. Silva is an outstanding communicator, and always careful to show dignity and respect.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

This was my first visit with Dr. Silva. Dr. Silva explained everything and how he was going to treat my eyes. Very good doctor. As when Dr. Karth left I was not given a choice who I was going to see. But now I have Dr. Sliva and I am very pleased with my new doctor.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

I love my doctor.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Verey gd. Thank you

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

This is the second time Dr. Silva took care of me; the initial time was in July. He is always extremely competent, communicative, thoughtful about pain and discomfort, and always working to educate me about my problem. I would recommend him to everyone that has a retinal/vitreous issue - and frankly any eye problem. He's a rock star.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

I really like Dr Silva and believe he is very concerned/responsive to my situation. I am concerned about the eye drops as I'm having a bit of an adverse side effect. I did email him and he did respond right away about how to take the drops. I forgot to ask about the side effect so...it's kind of on me.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Great care, great communication, great patient interaction. Very efficient and focused. Good use of my time. in and out in less than 1 hr. including 20 minute wait post tech testing for room to open up so Dr could see me. Overall Great patient care/experience.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr. Silva is exceptional medically & as a communicator. As the author of "The Communication Problem Solver" (NYNY) I am very aware of communication styles. Dr. Silva is an outstanding communicator. Dr. Silva is an amazing medical practitioner! Leading edge knowledge & skills.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr. Silva was very good. He gave me the most thorough eye exam I have ever had and explained what he was doing every step of the way. He answered all of my questions in a professional but friendly manner and thoroughly explained procedures I should consider and necessary follow-up care. I feel very confident that I could not have gotten any better care any place else.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Very patient and courteous doctor.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Silva is excellent; he clearly and thoroughly explained the test results (showed the pictures) in regards to what was occurring with my eye,what needed to be done and the long term expectations. He acknowledged my complex health history and allergies in managing my care. He is a very personable and a warm caregiver.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Silva was exceptional. I had come in for a general eye exam but told him that my main concern was Graves Eye Disease, and I showed him a stack of lab results. He did the Graves exam and told me everything I needed to know.
