Carolina Care Highlight: Dr. Francisco Sylvester

Our patient comment this week recognizes Francisco Sylvester, MD, in the department of pediatrics: "For this appointment, we saw Dr. Sylvester to start on the first loader dose of Humira. Honestly, moving to this medicine has been scary, but Dr. Sylvester has thoroughly answered my numerous questions in the office and through messages that I send through the portal..."

"...He gave me very specific instructions of how to reach the GI department after hours should there be an issue during the use of this medication. He was proactive in thinking ahead for me heading to college in the fall, and explained how to complete paperwork for college to handle the needs of my disease. Very helpful. Dr. Sylvester listens to both me (I'm 17) and asks me questions but also asks my parents questions at appointments so I feel like we all get our turn at answering questions.”


Our patients often provide comments about their providers when completing their Press Ganey patient experience survey. While you can always review comments at UNC Health Care's Find-a-Doctor website, we will highlight a few of the best comments every two weeks.
