After over 25 years of opening our doors, SILVA CLINIC has successfully helped thousands of children and adults improve their quality of life. Our Clinical Director, Dr. Clarisse Marquis Colvard, holds a doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology (SLPD) and has over 40 years of experience in the discipline. She has worked as a SLP in the fields of education, skilled nursing facilities, outpatient clinic, and the El Paso county hospital. In 1990, she founded the Speech Pathology Program at El Paso county's R. E. Thomason Hospital (now University Medical Center).
In October of 1994, the SILVA CLINIC was established, becoming the first full-service rehabilitation center in El Paso. In 2007, the service model was changed to completely focus on all communication and feeding disorders. Today, we are located in 'The Tower' (University Towers).
At SILVA, Dr. Clarisse and her staff provide individualized treatment in combination with an exclusive written Home Program that provides strategies and techniques to successfully transfer new skillsets into the patient's daily life.
