Verified Patient Reviews
Never saw the doctor for a follow up due to wait time ( over 35 minutes). Appt was just to get MRI results so I asked the receptionist to just have the doctor call me but she said "he must see you" . Desk staff very dry and non apologetic; left because I couldn't wait any longer, will try to schedule in another office
He was wonderful caring and competent. I would recommed him highly.
Not a pain specialist! No meds! Cmon zocdoc Wasted trip for me The staff were so nice they referred me to a pain specialist and I didn't have to pay for the accidental visit
Genuine and thorough
Everything was excellent
Dr. Silverman is very professional and has helped me with my injuries and pain mitigation. He listens to me and pinpoints the problem. No guesswork, because of his extensive training and experience. Thank you.
Brett Silverman is the best doctor , he knows what wrong and tells you ways to fix it ..he makes sure your comfortable . He is very good doctor trust him completely .
We asked your service for pain management . And mr Brett silverman was on your lists for it I went there to find out that he does not do pain management.
He says he's pain managament but does not prescribe medications. Nice man otherwise.
I specifically made an appointment for 9am because I had to be home by 10:30am. I assumed that 90 minutes was enough time for an initial discussion with the doctor. I was there on time and signed in as a new patient. After 45 minutes I checked the sign-in sheet and I still wasn't next. No one spoke to me; no one asked for my referral script; no one asked for my paperwork, which I filed out prior to my arrival. Frankly, there are too many good practitioners out there for me to waste so much time in a waiting room. I see many doctors and all of them see me within 15 minutes of my appointment time, most even sooner. I won't reschedule.
Dr Silverman was very polite, helpful, and knowledgeable. Even though he was not able to help me with my problem, he referred me to someone else who can help. Very good doctor.
Dr. Silverman was very polite and professional.
All needs met
He is a great doctor
Don't go near this office.
Very nice person but to many patients and not enough workers.
Went very well - I'm hopeful that I can get a proper treatment plan.
The doctor was great! He listen to me, and didn't rush me, I liked that he took his time to tell me what I had, and what was necessary, very nice doctor, didn't rush to talk to me... The waiting time was a little 2 much, I was frustrated, but it's understandable. At least I left with a good "diagnosis" or "treatment" ... The staff.. Mmm they need to be a little more happier, at least a smile when ppl walk in, to make us feel welcome.
Pleasant and informative. Doc seemed to be honest and friendly. Reception people did not smile, but then that's not what I went there for.
Front Desk assistant need work but MD was very professional,great bed side manner and answered all questions.
Very professional. Pleasant
me gusto la manera de trabajar de el me encanto y ayudo mi problema estoy mejor
It was my first visit. The staff was very friendly a little unorginized, maybe because it was 9am and they were getting situated for the day. The doctor was awesome, he actually listened and did not rush. He explained everything to me, options, pros and cons, and I feel that I'm in good hands. The staff was friendly and office was clean.
I had to wait a little longer than I would like, but I quickly realized that it was because the Dr. was taking the time to actually help his patients and not just speed through to get to the next person. He explained things in an easy to understand manner and I appreciated his attitude and the visit overall.
I'm still shocked at how easy this was to book, how nice the staff was and how Dr. Silverman took the time to explain things and answer my questions! I have a follow up in a few weeks. If that goes as well I will be amazed!
False advertising self absorbed. Overbooked.
Great guy really cared clean waiting room I really liked being there he seemed very knowing
Besides the very long wait (which Dr. Silverman profusely appologized for) the office, its staff, and Dr. Silverman himself were all outstanding. I highly recommend this doctor and his facility.
Dr. Silverman had a very kind & compassionate demeanor. He made me feel comfortable & was quick to follow-up regarding the results of my MRI!
Dr. Silverman is very helpful, and his 'bedside manner' is excellent.
