About the doctor
Guy DaSilva, MD
|I am often asked why I took the “alternative road” in medicine. I never truly intended to be unconventional. In fact, I spent many years as a staunch protector of academic and conventional medicine having been trained in numerous medical specialties in New York and New England. I graduated from Southampton College in 1978 with a degree in biochemistry; spent three years at New York University College of Dentistry where I became a devout student of the basic medical sciences and later earned my medical degree at the Spartan Health Sciences University School of Medicine in 1986 in the British West Indies. The next six-years of my life was spent in formal residency & fellowship training in a variety of medical specialties including Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at The Brooklyn Hospital Center, State University of New York Downstate Medical College, Internal Medicine at St. Vincent’s Medical Center, New York Medical College, Hematology/Hematopathology and Molecular Diagnostic Medicine at Hartford Hospital, and Surgical Pathology & Cytopathology at North Shore University Hospital, Cornell Medical School. I’m so thankful for the tremendous basic foundation of medical education I received that was to set the stage for the next exciting journey that was to come.
After many years of training, I took my first position as an assistant professor of Medicine & Pathology at the University of Kansas School of Medicine and held the title of Director of Hematology & Hematopathology at the KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas. Shortly after, I was recruited by a biotechnology company in New England, where I was appointed the Director of Forcyte® Laboratory, one of the largest diagnostic facilities in the US responsible for developing biomarkers of early detection of cancer. Years later I became the CEO and Medical Director of HemePath Institute, an internationally recognized laboratory dedicated to diagnosing the most complex hematopoietic diseases and cancers of the bone marrow and lymphatic system.After many successful years in conventional medicine I felt that I had made my mark as an expert in many fields. This was until disease hit home. It was here that my faith in the conventional medicine approach would be shaken and my view of the current medical system changed forever.
