Great human being. Great doctor
Dr. Silver is a great doctor with excellent bedside manner! If you are looking for a doctor that actually cares about the patient, look no further!
I have never met a Doctor who is so through. He asks very important question and is very consistent. He really seems to understand the importance of bedside manner. He is very knowledgable and straight forward. The office staff is very nice and professional. He really takes the time to know the patient.
Dr. Silver has always had a great staff and a comfortable environment. This is the service I expect when seeing my primary physician.
The doctor was very pleasant and nice. I just recently transferred and this was my first appointment with him. He took the time to answer all my questions and that is a plus in my book. I would highly recommended him to other friends and family members.
He was excellent, his coworkers are very nice
Very professional and nie.
Excelent.... Yo lo recomiendo altamente
Stressed out staff ; some rude with an attitude and not helpfu, not understanding English, not literate
The visit was great, the staff was friendly, and the doctor was funny and helpful!
I've been with Dr. Silver for a decade. He's been great to me and highly recommend him.
Dr. Silver is amazing. Thorough and has amazing follow-up skills. He literally go through everything with you. Good or bad. I have recommended him already. He will definitely be my Primary.
Although I was not happy about the 40 minute wait, I have to say that once I was inside, the service was speedy. This was my first time with Dr. Silver, and I was more than pleased with his demeanor and his willingness to listen. Great bedside manner. So far, very happy with my primary care physician.
Seems to be a very good Physician but cannot manage the office. The result is poor feedback and poor follow-up with Referrals. Dealt with the doctor just once and the rest through an assistant.
The doctor is very thorough and very nice.
The Doctor is nice. His staff is grrreat. Very nice people. The visit was quick and efficient. Will come back to this Doctor.

One word The Best Doctor
I'm looking forward to starting a very lasting relationship with my new physician. Very courteous, detailed, and I admire his charming personality.
My visit with Dr Silver was an uplift in comparison to other family doctors that I've encountered. He introduced himself and made me welcomed. Dr. Silver asked all the necessary questions about my family history and history of illness so he would know where to get started in having whatever test needed to be done and create my profile. I am delighted to have him as a doctor.
I been in the industry for many years, but for the first time I met such professional and knowledgeable Doctor. He will be doctor for my whole family and I will recommend him to all my friends.
Very nice and friendly
Professional, polite and direct
It's like visiting an old friend. I drive from Broward county to see him and his staff. Great guy! Great doctor!
It was great! He answered all our questions, LISTENS to us and has a wonderful sense of humor. We are very glad to have him as our GP.
I recommended some of my friends
Dr. Silver was extremely courteous and actually listened the entire time we were there. We also appreciated Dr. Silver's knowledge of medicine along with his friendly and engaging personality.
Dr. Silver is the best Primary Care doctor I have EVER used! He listens to you and truly takes the time to assess your medical treatment. I have been seeing him for years and have been grateful for the thorough care he always provides. His staff is awesome and the whole office is friendly and makes a trip to the doctor less stressful. I highly recommend them all!
It was ok he had student interns with him.
Dr. Silver was very courteous and willing to patiently listen to what I had to say. Definitely enjoyed my visit.
He is a very through doctor. He has a lot of patience and gives you all the time that you need. I really like the blood tests that Dr Silver orders. I also like his natural suggestion in helping build back levels that are in adequate.
Love the doctor and love his staff!!!
Very friendly helpful and knowledgeable
I called in because I was really feeling unwell. I was told to come in right away. I really appreciated it. The staff is also always pleasant and caring.
Excellent doctor!!! He listen and answer all my questions.
Always the best medical advise.
Excellent. Very knowledgeable and professional. Office staff is very pleasant and helpful
first visit was great, but the second time I went back, the staff did not know how to handle my emergency, and I ended up having to go to elsewhere where I would be seen as a priority. Staff needs to be properly trained to handle emergent situations.
Hes an excellent doctor!! Highly recommended!!
Visit was very good, Dr. Silver was very courteous and professional. However, I waited a long time because his computer system was down and this pushed all of his appointments behind.
Dr. Silver I have left numerous messages for you and today 2/2/16 I was told your office manager, Dina would call me and I am still waiting for a call back. My issue is that on 1/18/16 I spoke to Jennifer and explained that the insurance would not cover "Ferralet" unless you send them an Authorization Request. I was assured this would be done. As you probably already know, mom had surgery so I have been out of pocket. I did follow up on 2/1 to see why the medication was not received from the pharmacy and when I spoke to Jennifer she said, "I didn't do anything about this because we have been short handed and I have not had time"!!!!!!!!! Dr. these are not car parts we are talking about, it is the well being of a human being. This is totally unacceptable. I am on hold again (3rd time today) to see if I can speak with Dina and get this resolved. As of 2/3/16 10:44am I have not received a call back and when I call the office, I get voice mail!
Good as usual
I hope you don't lose my blood ,this time
Had to change Doctors after 20 years as my doctor retired. so pleased Dr. silver was recommended to me. Feel I am in great hands
it was perfect
Very informative, great expetience
The staff was wonderful and the doctor listened to all of my concerns.
Extremely competent and caring. Took time to provide answers to questions.
Dr. Silver has the greatest Dr. office. His staff is personable, they take you right away, and are so friendly! Dr. Silver does not rush you, he takes a genuine interest in how you are doing, he forgets nothing from your last visit, and shows a personal interest. He is up on all the latest treatments, and medications for your situation. I am taking up a collection to clone him! We need more doctors like Dr. Craig Silver!
I like the fact that I am in at 12pm and seeing right away as scheduled. I have been a patient of Dr. Silver for 2 1/2yrs and never had to wait more than 10 minutes after signing in. Thank you.
Very productive as always.
Best doc in town, always exceeds my expectations!
He read me my lab results as if I've never seen them before. Knowledgeable on EMR systems, but has a condescending tone about him.
He is a great Human being in a body of processional doctor
Doctor Craig is thorough. Unfortunately, the rest of the staff do not flow well. I think they need more help upfront. Better communication.
My visit with Dr Silver went well. He answered every question that I had. Every concern I had was addressed with follow up appointments and the proper referrals made. Dr Silver is a very professional doctor and I would highly recommend him to each and everyone I know that is need of a PCP.
Explains your issue to you very well. Asks many questions which makes you feel like he's really trying to come up with the best diagnosis
I like the fact That he took the time to explain everything to me, he sat with me for couples of minutes, he shows his interest to have further information about me and find out why I could be sick. It is great how they respect the time of each appointment.
45 minute wait in the waiting room. Uses eClinicalworks for an emr. Bedside manner needs improvement. He warmed up to me after a while.
Dr. Silver always takes the time to LISTEN to you. He is an awesome doctor and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a great family physician.
Great doctor! Thank you!
He was very comprehensive understanding and helpful One thing I like about him ( Dr Craig Silver) he wants to make sure he gets right information about the condition of patient health before he goe further . I like his attitude treat patient as family
Thx Dr. Silver. Made my appointment worth it. Will be coming back.
He did a deep study
Wonderful doctor and staff. Very friendly, patient and open to questions and concerns. Best doctor I've seen in the Miami area
Very smart, competent caring doctor. Highly recommend Dr Silver.
he's always thorough, never rushes you and always answers all your questions ...
I was prepared to wait, like they always make you in doctor's offices. I was seen RIGHT AWAY! Literally! As soon as I filled out the new patient forms (which is also very compact without having to write the same thing over and over again) I was taken in, vitals checked, and doctor showed up right away! Very professional. I am extremely pleased with everything!
Very thorough and professional highly recommended.

Personable and friendly. Willing to take the time to discuss matters of concern to the patient
Very informative, practical and useful Awesome doctor. Doesn't rush through your visit and is very patient and comforting.
Dr. Silver was very attentive and observant. His office seems to function really well. I never felt rushed or uncomfortable.
It was great very quick and informative
I have never had a complaint for Dr. Silver or his office staff and medical assistants. Very friendly and professional. I feel like I have a doctor who cares about me and know what he is doing, two very important details. I recommend him to family, friends, co-workers, anyone who will listen. He is top notch!!
Great ethic and professionalism and positive attitude.
My appointment went great. I was seen by Dr. Silver less than 20 minutes from when I arrived. .Silver is just wonderful. He always has a happy and cheerful demeanor. He really spends time with his patients and really listens to me. He's the best.
Very professional, respectful, and helpful.
This was my first visit with dr. Silver and I was very impressed. The office was clean and the staff was efficient and friendly. Dr. Silver took the time to answer my questions and address all my concerns and not once did I feel like I was being rushed. On top of that, he had a wonderful bedside manner and incredibly thorough. I would definitely recommend this doctor.
Provides remedies, solutions and the proper analysis of any reviewed problems. Knowledgable, effective and efficient.
He took a lot of time with me and didn't seem to mind. All the girls in the office are wonderful too. Very sweet and professional.
I had a very good visit the nurses where some of the best trained nurses I have ever had. I am scared of needles very scared and they made me very comfortable. Doctor Craig Silver mentioned that, David me when we put a needle in you we don't put the whole needle as perceived. Very comfortable doctors office I highly recommend Doctor Craig Silver.
Dr. Silver is an Outstanding professional with a great bedside manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Silver to anyone in need of medical services!
I think my visit was excellent. He is a very caring and considerate physician. Our visit today was to discuss the results of my mothers blood test. I have never had such a thorough, detailed exam. We were given a copy to keep and look over while Dr. Silver went over every test in detail. He made suggestions to improve some of the numbers and suggested vitamins and supplements vs more pills for my mother take. I love that he integrates an natural approach in conjunction with pharmaceutical medicine. We left with an printed overview of the visit in addition to all the suggestions made. I am so pleased that I found Dr. Craig and would definitely suggestion him to friends and family..
Very through regarding all the exam results as well as all other concerns.
This was my first office visit. It was very smooth, they requested most of my information ahead of time, so when I went there I only needed to show the correct ID and insurance cards, fill a few simple forms out and then I was ready for my visit. The Dr. was very responsive to my questions, spent time with me to go over any issues or concerns. The staff was equally accommodating and quick to get me the information that the Dr. had requested.
Amazing, as always.
He was patient, compassionate, caring and very bright. He took the time to get to know my health history and understand my current symptoms in order to create a treatment plan. I am so grateful to have him as my new doctor! Already recommended him to some of my friends!
First visit. Very impressed. Took time to answer all my questions in a great deal of detail. Made me feel at ease. Staff also very pleasant.
I was feeling flu-like and did not want to go to a fast-type med place. I called to schedule an appt. the staff called me back within a few hours and they fit me in to his schedule the following morning. I was pleased at how prompt it was. He and his staff are very kind. We started a treatment right away.
Very kind and thorough.
I was referred to him by a long time friend and I have been nothing less than pleased since he became my doctor almost a year ago. He is thorough, and takes time to get to know his patients in order to provide the best care according to your needs. I finally found a doctor that cares about his patients.
It was a great visit and felt our conversations was confidential
Its not bad so far after 2 appts but could be better.
Had a excellent visit with Dr Craig Silver and his staff. He was professional, knowledgable, friendly and very detail in my health analysis. I was very lucky to find a PCP like him, since I just recently relocated from Tampa Florida.
I was very pleased, as I was very sick and needed to be seen that day and they accommodated me right away.
I have great confidence in Dr. Silver's ability to provide me with the best in healthcare. I am pleased that he is so comprehensive.
Dr. Silver is always very pleasant and attentive to each problem I have. Like office staff. They do not waste any time of your visit. Professional and sufficient people.
What I like about Dr. Silver is that he is nice, patient, caring and is consistent. I know that whenever I go to my appointment I not only will continue with my treatment but I'll continue to be very well treated as well.
I am very pleased with my first visit with Dr. Silver and could not ask for a better staff experience, time with the Doctor - not being rushed and a very good overall impression. He is extremely detailed and thorough, I felt that he took the time to ask every imaginable question about my health, lifestyle, fitness, history etc. He not only listened to my answers but offered a few options other providers did not. I had to change primary care providers as my insurance changed and at first was disappointed however, I am optimistic that I am in even better care than before.
Disappointed. Lack of communication in the office. Nurses seemed confused. They don't validate parking. I was completely grossed out that the nurse giving me my flu shot did not think it was necessary to wear rubber gloves and I did not see her wash her hands or use hand sanitizer. Thought it was quite irresponsible with what's going on the news to not take more precaution and show your patients how responsible you are and give them confidence in the sanitary conditions of the office.
It was awful. He was arrogant, disrespectful, dismissive, condescending, and did not once look at me while asking questions I had already answered. Despite having more degrees than him, he treated me like scum back. I will never go back.
A rare and capable Doctor. Exceptional professional that understands how to help while respecting individual patient needs. Good representation of how the Doctor / Patient relationship was intended to work. This guy not only went to medical school but also leaned something along the way. It was indded a nice surprise to find him.
It is one of the few doctors that have the time to listen to his patient concerns. I think he is incredible! Ester Karaguilla
Dr Silver is great. He always takes his time and makes me feel like a VIP. He pays attention not only to me but my entire family. He never loses focus. He remembers all my injuries and conditions. He is not pompous . He is very grounded. Best Dr. I have ever had.
Great! Always have a good visit with Dr. Craig Silver. No matter how bad the situation, we always try and have a chuckle.
Accommodating, courteous, and concerning; that's my Doctor Silver!
I love his new office!! Referrals are prompt!! Great listener!! Love to see Marilyn, Jenny, and Jenny too!! Ana helps keep things straight! Thank you to all!! Glad to be back after insurance "nightmare"!!
Great service. Doctor is very attentive and intelligent. Nice bedside manners. Would highly recommend!
Dr Silver is friendly, nurturing, thorough, and asks specific, pointed questions about any ailments to get all of the facts before making a diagnosis. He and his staff are most accommodating to my special needs and ready to help with any matter when I am in the office.
I think his the best doctor I ever had.
Excellent warm and friendly faces, vary attentative, listen, response, as well as assist with all other medical needs
Always great experience. He is caring and the most organized physician! My Rx is called in while I'm at his office and ready to be picked up at the pharmacy when I get there. Gotta love that! :)
the best care
Excellent doctor! Great bedside manner. Really takes the time to listen. I was having serious problems and had seen a few specialists with no luck. After meeting with Dr. Silver for the first time, I was on the road to recovery. I couldn't believe it! Seriously, Thank you Dr. Silver
I have been searching for a PCP for quite some time now, since my husband and I moved from NY we have seen several and ha e been quite dissapointed up until now. Dr. Silver will from now on be our pcp of choice, he is very informative, spends a good deal of time with you, answers all your questions and concerns, if need be goes into every detail of a regimen to be followed, addresses your health needs with a more natural approach rather than going straight for meds, which i believe is the great difference between D.O.'s and M.D.'s. The office is very clean and pleasant. Cons: Wait time is a bit lengthy but worth it, after your done seeing him you would have forgitten all about it! Since he tries to spend a good amount of time with all his patients. Staff seems a bit disoriented at times(front desk), with tasks and answering phones while checking you in or out, but nonetheless very willing and friendly. I am very happy with my visits and will be recommending Dr. Silver to all my family and friends.
Dr. Silver saw me very quickly, and his main nurse was nice and friendly. He addressed all my concerns. There were only three negatives. First, although I had filled out the paperwork beforehand, they asked me to fill some more paperwork out and said it was "additional." Although some of it was definitely additional, most of it was repetitive of what I had already filled out online. That didn't bother me too much. Second, at the end of the visit they gave me a nice "summary of my visit." The thing that bothered me about that was there was items on there that it said Dr. Silver "recommended" but which he never discussed with me during the visit. That bothered me. Finally, I was told the only way that labs will be discussed is if you come in person and pay a separate co-pay for that visit. Otherwise, you can check your labs online. I don't like that you have to come back simply to get your lab results explained, but I asked for the way to access the #s online. I was given a sheet, and tried to login, but it did not work at all. This was also annoying. Overall though, Dr. Silver is nice and gets you in and out, which I loved.
I waited a while before posting, allowing the office and Doctor to reply to in-person,phone and fax requests of the issues I encountered. I will just share my experience as best I can. I made an initial appt. and waited for over 30 min before anyone at the check in called me in, I was then told I would have to wait longer to see the Dr., so I rescheduled. I waited again for my follow up appt. The Dr. seemed pleasant and friendly. No issues with my appt. I had some tests ordered, one of which was a cancer screen test, I am in remission. I was called with the test results by the front desk, who proceeded to read the results incorrectly and told me that may markers were elevated, suggesting the potential of cancer recurrence. This is not something you callously provide over the phone. In defense the girl on the phone was unaware of what she told me, but should have been educated by the doctor. There was some confusion with the other results requiring the need for repeat blood work. I had to follow up for blood draw, again waiting for 30 min before rescheduling, and again when having performed. I was billed for an office visit for my simple blood draw, despite my voiced concerns and had one lab repeated unnecessarily at my expense. I expressed all of my concerns to the staff and asked to discuss these issues with the Dr., with no response. I also sent a fax to the office requesting the same. I would think some courtesy of response would be appropriate. I have been through these issues myself and have extended courtesy to those who needed it. I have waited for a while for the office or the doctor to reach out, to no avail. I just wanted to share the experience I had. I really thing patients need to be more informed and educated in the health care experience. Waiting for an appointment may be expected and understandable, but with each visit, problematic. I also appreciate the convenience extended by the doctor to have test results called to me, but when there are major red flags with the results, it's best to have been called directly by the doctor. Billing for the follow up lab work is allowed, but not warranted, especially after voicing my concerns. Anyone can walk into an outpatient lab and get blood work for no additional expense. I just think you need as much information as possible.
He is the best! I travel 100 miles round trip to see him.
Nice staff, clean office
Took a long time because his staff moved slowly, but it was the most comprehensive annual exam I have gotten.
Very professional. In an emergency he has always time for me
Dr Silver is very professional & easy to relate to. He makes you feel comfortable.
He listening and he is really into his patient . Really very good dictor
Dr. Silver is a rarity in the medical field. He takes the time to explain exams and test results in layman terms. His bedside manner is tops and could work a little more on his joke delivery... Haaa. Yeah, he's awesome.
Dr. Silver listens to all your concerns and does his best to help take care of your problems. He is very professional and has great bedside manners.
Dr. Silver is very easy to talk to and a fabulous listener. He wants to address any issues that may be of concern to you. Gets right to the point and takes excellent notes so there's no guess work about your visit. I'm very pleased with him as my GP
Phone system in office very disorganized, Staff lost my appointment and rescheduled me then called me to ask why I didn't show up to appointment. Cant get through on the phone ever
Excellent service, attention to detail and excellent staff
Dr. Silver is by far my favorite doctor. He listens and has always steered my in the right direction to ensure any specialized problems are resolved quickly with other providers. I highly recommend him!
I fill the roles ZOZ DOC, but they did not have it in the system or they do not read, I had to re-fill the forms. Doctor sat alone with your computer to fill out forms, questions that have not heard my answer, no connection with me. :(
Everything was just fine. Office staff was nice the young lady that took my blood pressure was very helpful. Doctor silver was very helpful.
Dr. Silver was friendly but staff was unhelpful. Was given wrong information by the staff and when I asked to speak with Dr. Silver to discuss, was not put through nor given a call back. I will be looking for another doctor.
Dr. Silva was really nice and patient. Awesome doctor would highly recommend. Excellent office staff as well.
very thorough perfect
Dr Silver is a wonderful doctor that goes the extra mile. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Silver is the best! He listens and truly cares about his patients. I wouldn't see anyone else!
I feel better. He is calming down person.
The doctor is very thorough during the visit. However, the policy for followups, which require each patient to come back, is very frustrating. As someone who works far from the office, it's very inconvenient to keep coming back on top of being forced to pay a copay for each visit.
Very nice and thorough
Excellent service and very professional.
Dr. Silver has a very clean and modern office with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Silver is genuinely interested in the patient and wants to make sure the patient has all questions and concerns addressed. I would highly recommend this doctor to anyone looking for a primary care doctor!
Moved from Arizona to Miami and trying to find a great doctor isn't always easy. My appointment was @ 11 when I arrived,I signed in got the paperwork to fill out, paid my co-pay and i was seen in a matter of 5 mintues! That was AWESOME!!! The staff was great and Dr. Silver was warm, welcoming,efficient. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.He is my new DOCTOR :) pearl
He was very thorough and spent a lot of time with me. He was very helpful and wanted to make sure that he asked all the right questions and ordered all the right tests for me. I highly recommend him!
