I was unimpressed with Dr. Silver. He came into the examination room and started touching my face without warning, explaining his examination or "I'm going to start the exam now." In addition to that, he did not wear gloves or showany indication that he had cleaned his hands from his last patient. He also missed several of my moles since his examination was subpar and missed areas of my body (my ribs and backs of my legs). I had to direct his attention to several that I was concerned about. I would not recommend him.

I was genuinely excited to meet with Dr. Silver for a continuing skin condition that has been bothering me for many months. With the number of good reviews Dr. Silver has gotten, I hoped to finally have my problem licked andI'd be able to stop worrying about my ailment. However, Dr. Silver did not seem to even care about the lengths I've gone through before coming to him. He would not listen to my previous treatments, and went ahead with a treatment I said I've ready been through that did not help me at all. While I acknowledge Dr. Silver's expertise in the subject, he did not seem to care about his clients, especially evident after my 40 minute wait for my appointment which I arrived 10 minutes early for.

Arrived on time for my appointment at 2 PM and waited an hour and there were still people in front of me so I left. No reflection on the Doctor who has treated me before and was very good but Icannot recommend the Overlook hospital administration staff. They clearly do not possess the ability to properly run an office and properly schedule appointments to their capabilities.

Dr. Silver was amazing. Very thorough, competent and just an all around really, really nice guy. My last dermatologist spent anywhere from 3 to 5 mins with me each visit. Dr. Silver spent 15-20 mins looking me over and creating abaseline for my full body screen. I highly, highly recommend him.

Dr. Silver was great! I went in for a minor skin condition and he had me in and out in less than 10 minutes (minus the 10 minutes in the waiting room). I had never seen a dermatologist before him but I will definitely be going back.

He may have fixed my skin, but when he asked me what I do for a living and then proceeded to tell me that he would NEVER have his child go to my classroom with my condition was not the appropriateway of speaking to me. He simply could have suggested I be careful when around the children. I had sore skin around my nose and ears. I kept it very clean at all times and it was not contagious, my children were never at risk. I found it extremely unprofessional when he said this to me and the tone of his voice was harsh as well when saying it. I understand I had a lot going on, but I also am on a lot of medication for Crohn's Disease that makes it hard for my skin to heal. I am currently free of all blemishes and happy about that, but will not be returning for a follow-up.

For the first time, I've seen the dermatologist through Zocdoc. appointment schedule. It was very flexible with my desirable time. However, when I try to make appointment through the Doctor's office, I had to wait for several days which wasvery inconvenient for me. He was very professional, friendly and honest about the diagnosis. He immediately figured out what the problem was and he did not try to sell anything. Very often, I found many MD's are not that way. So I was very impressed. I'll recommend him to anyone and also I will visit him again in the future. The only problem for me to find his office building was not well sign posted outside, even though the street number was correct. So I thought it was a apartment bloc not the medical office or medical group, initially. When you go inside the building, then there was the explanation of what offices are there.
