Great impression and overall experience! I went in as a new patient, and was seen right away. I didn't have to wait long at all for the doctor to come in the room to see me, which typically I've waited avery long time at other offices even with an appointment. He had two students in the room, and I appreciate his method of teaching them. He was very friendly and respectful. But I loved the fact that he had a lot of questions to all my concerns, he seemed to want to get to the bottom of my concerns, and it made me trust him very quickly. He explained everything, even about the medications I needed to take and changes I needed to make. He was very detailed, which I can appreciate because so am I! Not only where the students learning, but so was I! Also, immediately upon leaving, they sent me an email with a web portal account with all the details of the visit, prescription, follow up appointment, etc. I have never had that before so I loved it! The staff were very friendly and polite as well! I would definitely recommend him to anyone and will keep going to see him.

The wait time was less then 5 minuets at the lobby And 0 time at the room which is so much appreciated (and rare at any other doctor). Dr. Silver was knowledgeable, seem to have all my records on hand andhad given me the feeling that I can take as much time needed at his office.

The doctor was excellent. His front desk staff was good too - though they lack a bit of professionalism and could learn from Dr Silvers own bedside manner.

Dr. Silver is THE most amazing doctor and health professional I've ever known. Both my husband and I go to him and he is our primary physician for 4 years now. He is very personable, but no fluff, no nonsense, nottrying to sell you anything, just really takes his time to get to know his patients and provides excellent service. His staff is high quality too. Very professional, welcoming, and kind. Highly recommended.

Each visit to Dr. Silver's office has been a pleasure. His staff is very friendly and professional. All my concerns are handled quickly and his bedside manner is professional with a humorous touch. I always feel at ease when I havean appointment and secure in the knowledge that he didn't just skirt by in his studies. I've been a patient for over 5 years and will continue to call upon his services.

Dr. Silver is great, he's very thorough and takes time to discuss questions, recommendations, issues, etc. However, on this visit I was very unhappy about the check in procedure. My appointment was for 2 pm. I had received about a dozendifferent reminders of my appointment at 2 pm -- text, email AND a very insistent phone messages that I return the call to confirm my appointment. The first message was left on Wednesday -- when I called back a few minutes later I received the answering service message that the office was closed for the day and no way to leave a message. Received another call on Thursday morning (day of appt) when I was in a meeting and this one made it sound like if I didn't call back ASAP they would cancel my appointment. I called and confirmed. When I arrived at the office about 1:53 pm; the door was locked and another lady was waiting, too, for a 2 pm appointment. Hhhmm...how does he see 2 patients at the same time? The door was unlocked at exactly 2 pm. So how can one be seen as a 2 pm appointment before even checking in. Then came the paperwork (which, obviously I could have done BEFORE 2 pm if the door had been unlocked!). The other lady was called back first (and yes, she was there ahead of me). So, between the paperwork and the other 2 pm appointment, the whole process took approx 30 minutes before I was even called back. Felt my time was viewed as unimportant and extremely disrespected. Discussed this with Dr Silver, he only seemed slightly concerned their system is broken. Otherwise, the rest of my appointment with him went well and as expected.

Great first visit! I’m sick and needed to be seen, as my regular doctor closed his practice. Dr. Silver’s office didn’t have an appointment available I tip next week, but then they called shortly after and let me know there wasa cancellation this afternoon. I went in and they took great care of me. I will be going back.

My visit today was very informative. Dr. Silver has an excellent bedside manner. What I like most about him is that he is very thorough when making a diagnosis. He leaves nothing in question and makes sure all of your questionsand concerns are addressed. I also really like the fact that he uses alternative methods rather then just dosing out medication.

Doctor Silver is very knowledgeable and professional. Answers all the important questions you have. gives good recommendations if needed to be forwarded to the specialist. If you come on time for your appointment (or better 5-10 minutes early)you will most likely be taken to the room with almost no wait. If you are late then he might take another patient and you will be delayed but then it's your fault - just don't be late.

Front of house staff could be more friendly.. Dr, Silver is great but it's the front staff you see first before seeing the doctor. Anything that needs to be completed by the front staff is a hassle. It always seems likethe patient is doing THEM the favor of asking for a new appointment or a copy of documents. Also, their attentiveness to their patients is subpar and solely because of this, I would have to rate Dr. Silver lower than I would like to.
