Patient Testimonial
Two years and a pandemic later, we are now 20 weeks pregnant with our second and final embryo. We cannot thank Dr. Silva and his team enough for blessing us with our miracle baby.

Dr. Silva was absolutely wonderful! He was kind, patient and personally called me multiple times to explain results. I can’t recommend him enough!

Dr. Silva made my husband and I feel comfortable and he explained the process and procedures very well. I would definitely recommend him to everyone!

We would like to thank Dr. Silva for the great help in fulfilling our dream to have a baby.

First experience at this office was absolutely amazing. It seemed like the staff weren’t just there to do their job, but to make a difference.

I was nervous when I first started this journey but that went away as soon as I met Dr. Silva. He made me feel comfortable and hopeful.

To see my patients go through the journey towards parenthood by means of infertility therapy, sometimes facing significant adversity, and to see the courage with which they endure everything is truly inspiring.
