Ratings for Dr. Christine DaSilva
I absolutely love Dr Da Silva! When I became pregnant I was new to the area, so I asked all the women I knew who their Dr was or if they knew of a great OB/GYN. I wanted a kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, female Dr. Dr Da Silva was recommended by a few of these woman. I couldn't have been happier with my choice! Not only is she fantastic, but so is her staff. I was a typical nervous first time mom and had some complications. I started contracting at 27 weeks and ended up on bed rest the last 6 weeks or so of my pregnancy. Dr Da Silva was so kind and supportive. She always had time for all my questions and concerns and made me feel like I was doing a good job taking care of my baby to be! I found her bed side manner to be wonderful in the office and during the birth. The birth was the most amazing experience of my life, and she respected my birth plan. I will miss her as my Dr since I have moved out of state, and would highly recommend her to anyone!!
Dr. DaSilva was my doctor early on when she was in Boca Raton and did my fibroid surgery. She always had time to talk and answered all my questions. When I was in the hospital, she was great, too. Awesome bedside manner, very calm and professional.
Dr. Christine DaSilva was the OB on call when I went into labor. She was not friendly and did not have a good bedside manner. She was trying to pressure me into getting an epidural and all kinds of other things when I just wanted a natural unmedicated child birth. When I didn't do as she suggested she was upset. My labor was slow and she just kept suggesting that I get a c-section. I asked her if she had idea's to help dilate more and she just said no, I needed a c-section. After 20 hours of labor I delivered my 10lb baby girl naturally. Thanks partly to the wonderful nurse Pam at Halifax who helped me relax and change up my positions. Before I gave birth I had told Dr. DaSilva that I wanted to delay clamping of the cord but she did it right away and then delayed cutting it I guess to just appease me. I am leaving out a lot of other details but if you are looking for an OB that respects and supports you then look somewhere else.
Dr. Dasilva is an excellent ob/gyn. She was my gyn before my son's birth in 05 and now for this baby she is my doctor. I trust her advice and she is very understanding and helpful. She gave me such excellent care when my pregnancy with my son became complicated the last month of my pregnancy. She even was there to help me after the birth with gallbladder issues. Had it not been for her expedience I may not have survived and would have left my 29 day old son alone with his father to care for him and explain what happened to his mother. So I feel that she is excellent, and expedient, and understanding and really listens to me. This is very important to me.
