The provider was meeting [...] for the first time, but didn't bother to introduce herself first to [...] (or myself, daughter/health care proxy) when she came into the room. A warm greeting was non-existent.

I told Dr. DaSilva about my new diagnosis of cancer and she checked my eyes to make sure there was no cancer there.

Jul 14, 2022


I haven't seen her very many times, and was at least a month apart, yet she remembered me. I'm a healthcare practitioner myself. I'm not sure if I'd be able to remember one client out of several hundred, a month later.
