Dr. Silvera was excellent, took my nerves in stride and was very concerned about my getting the proper referral to a specialist when it turned out one was required. Would recommend.

Do yourself a favor and see a different doctor- there are so many in NYC who will treat you better than this man. Dr. Silvera was very rude during my appointment. He seemed like he was in a rush and was extremely impatient. When describing my symptoms, he brushed off many as if they were insignificant. I went to a different doctor who cared to take the time listening to my problems, and prescribed me medication that is now making me feel much better!

Doctor answered all questions. Covered all issues. Told me what's going on and didn't waist any minute. When I asked how often I supposed to see him, he answered when you have a pain (not like others-every 3-6 months) Highly recommend.

I have seen Dr. Silvera before, but not for the specific procedure I had this time. His office and then exam room manner was excellent. His description of the procedure was thorough; he asked if I had any questions or concerns; and when I asked a couple of questions, his responses were serious and satisfying, putting me completely at ease. The procedure went smoothly. There was a slight hiccup (due to me), and Dr. S addressed the issue quickly and with concern. Today (the next day), I feel fine and I have no discomfort at all.

The weather was terrible and I was running late. Dr. SIlvera's office was still able to accomodate me in a quick and efficient manner. Well done!

As I was checking in for my 9am appointment, I heard several men in suits ask for Dr Silvera and say that he was expecting them. I wonder then why they allowed me to schedule the appointment for the same time he was expecting them? At 9:15, a nurse told me that he had an "unexpected" meeting, which I know isn't true, and she wasn't sure when he'd be available. I had purposefully scheduled an early appointment so that I would be on time for work, but I didn't actually get to see him until 9:30. Luckily, I only spent 5 minutes with him, so I was not late. That included the time it took for him to review my file (he was clearly not prepared) and write me a new prescription. He told me to come back every year, but it seems like a waste of my money if all I know nothing has changed and all I need is a script.

He grew on me - he was direct, to the point, and had a good sense of humor about him.

Although he lacks in bedside manner a bit, he is very good in terms of approaching medical issues. He is not one of those DRs that are eager to rush into expensive unnecessary invasive procedures, before exploring all other less invasive alternatives first.
