Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Silverberg is exactly what I look for in a doctor: knowledgeable, excellent in explaining, as well as answering questions; passionate about his profession and wasn't rushing.
Very pleased with Dr. Silverberg's promptness, knowledge, and professional treatment. Look forward to continuing with him to treat my podiatric problems.
Hands down the best podiatrist in NYC! I had a neuroma on my left foot and visited atleast four podiatrists before seeing Dr. Silverberg. I had a RFA with him, and trust me the 45 minutes of surgery were the most fun moments I've ever spent at a doctor's office!!! <3
Really personable, easy to talk to. Explained my problem well in depth, and went through my options thoroughly. Also, if i went with surgery, explained the recovery in detail. Really liked him. Will be going back.
Did a brilliant diagnosis on the spot.
Dr. Silverberg is THE MAN. He performed bunion surgery for me in January, 2016 and the experience has been incredible. He's very thorough, explains everything that's going on in your foot while showing you the X-ray and telling you how he'll fix it. He's reliable and helpful - he lets you text him any questions before and after the surgery. He is the best. I'm not kidding, I love this guy. There's no one better!
Dr. Silverberg was very helpful and informative. I really appreciate it.
I have a lot of confidence in Dr Silverberg
Very knowledgable and respectable physician. No time was wasted, yet he took every minute needed to properly examine and explain things in detail. I'd definitely recommend him!
Fantastic experience. After a confusing and condescending visit with another podiatrist, Dr. Silverberg took the time to explain exactly what was going on anatomically with my foot, answer my questions, and (extra importantly) give me a measured treatment plan that didn't jump unnecessarily to surgery. Plus, I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen, and he's a really pleasant guy. Highly recommended!
As Always Dr. Silverberg greats you with a warm smile. He listens to your concerns. I am 5 weeks post op to my second surgery. He has been wnothing but attentive to all my needs. He checked both my feet. The foot that is currently into the fiftth week is really bothering me he removed sutures applied oitment re wrapped and we discussed me taking some more time off of work so can heal properly. I am so glad that he is my Doctor. The staff is great. I am Happy that I chose to have my surgery with him. I wasn't promised pain free procedure but he was did try to do his bed and if i followed his instructions I would not have problems the healing. I unfortunately had my own problems with the sutures. However, he was very good in giving me prompt attention. He cares about his patients. Even when he is about to board a plane literally two minutes before he called me and i was able to see his partner. He even called in antibiotics for me while he was boarding. I was able to text him pic of my foot and he called pharmacy. What kind of Doctor does this? If not a doctor who cares for his patients. He is awesome. I am truly blessed. I hope he is forever blessed in abundance.
Amazing! Very thorough and truly cares for his patients
Dr. Lupoli was extremely thorough and took his time. He is also a very good listener, and I appreciated his bedside manner. Would recommend enthusiastically.
Very thorough in explaining what he was doing and why, and in answering any questions I had. Relaxed and personable bedside manner, put me at ease even when I had to have a fairly uncomfortable procedure done.
Dr. Silverberg is a fantastic doctor. His explanation about what to expect before, during, and after my procedure was very detailed and thorough. It's been just over a year and I couldn't be happier with my results.
As soon as my husband and I walked through the door we were relaxed the staff the music all positive. When Dr Lawrence called my name, it followed with a smile and an introduction. His bedside manners are extraordinary. He carefully and meticulously exam my feet and asked me all the questions and waited for my response. He reviewed my x-rays with me, he even noticed a something on my x-ray and he eased my mind. He would also look into that the day of the surgery. The fact that he explains it in details and even states that when he is operating he may have to do this or that procedure and only upon surgery he will know if it's necessary. Really calms my nerves. Then of course he went over options with me. However, my only option is surgery I have tried everything. He was so detailed with the procedure and how long recovery would be. I loved that his honesty and his bed side manner made me feel like I was sitting in my living room talking to a friend. He didn't promise it would be pain free, which was the deal breaker for me. This office is not operated like a business but a caring facility where patient care is the number one concern. When we were through speaking to the staff I must mention Norma is awesome, she sat there patiently and scheduled my appoints for pre-op, post-op and even my second surgery was scheduled. The rest of the staff was very professional and friendly. I am feeling so confident that my surgery and recovery will go well and that I will in the future be bunion and pain free. Thank you to Dr. Lawrence and his staff I can finally see myself without this foot problem. Finally a solution. I will recommend any one to this office. My overall first time experience was positive and reassuring. (Brighteyes)
Going to the podiatrist is nerve wrecking for me, I've been hiding my unsightly feet since I can remember but meeting Dr. Silverberg alleviated my fears and anxiety. He is very soft spoken, professional, knowledgeable and personable. I'm hoping to do my surgery with him in the future.
Dr. Silverberg is excellent! He took his time listening to me and went right to the problem. Dr. Silverberg explained my condition to me and my treatment option I was fixed in no time! I feel like a new woman today I will be going back to him. Thanks Doc ??!
The appointment was quick, but didn't seemed rushed-- just efficient. Very personable and answered all my questions. Very informative.
What else can I add that others haven't already stated. You can't have 5 stars if you're not knowledgeable, confident, empathetic, Forthright and thorough. The fact that his staff is courteous, might also have contributed to his ratings. :-) He knows his field. It's comforting.
Very professional! He took his time explaining everything to me. He made sure all my questions were answers. Would highly recommend him.
Excellent visit with an excellent, thoughtful doctor! Highly recommend.
Doctor Lawrence Silverberg saw me the first time, the 2nd time he passed me on to his associate. He was great the first time but I'm still dealing with my situation.
Excellent doctor, very professional, good manners, nice and patient. Highly recommended.Definitely I will come back.
Dr. Silverberg was fantastic. Took the time to go over everything and explain what was wrong with my foot in a way that I can understand. Had me back running the next morning! Office was clean, and staff were friendly and helpful. A+++
This was my first appointment with Dr. SIlverberg, and the first time I have ever seen a podiatrist for my bunions. I selected Dr. SIlverberg based on reviews on ZocDoc and the information on his website - which was very through, informative, and presented in a way I could I understand. Needless to say, he lived up to his reviews - and then some. I was beyond impressed with my experience. During my visit, Dr. Silverberg was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment. I would highly recommend Dr. Silverberg.
The visit went great. Dr. Silverberg listened to all my concerns. I did not feel rushed at all. He was able to explain certain conditions regarding my specific situation.
A friendly really good doctor.
Fantastic! Was greeted directly by him, zero waiting.
Dr Silverberg was very professional and effective. I walked into his office balancing on the side of one foot due to a painful callous pressing on my nerve and walked out with nearly no pain at all. Would highly recommend.
I was very impressed with Dr. Silverberg's bedside manner and professionalism .
Very professional and honest. Told me there is no cure for my issue and explained clearly why. Did not try to make money off me by prescribing medicine that would not work. Did not schedule unnecessary follow ups. Excellent service and very friendly office!
He's the best!
Highly professional and would recommend to anyone I was seen straight away and had an X-ray to see what the problem is all about.
He is great !!
If all doctors offices functioned this smoothly and all doctors visits were this easy, pleasant and informative the world would be a better place.
Very patient, nice and thorough.
One of my best doctors. Dr. Silverberg is personable and knowledgeable. Never rushes and is genuinely concerned about my well-being. Always a great visit.
Super friendly and patient with questions
I have never written a review for anything - ever! However, I just have to do it for Dr. Silverberg due to his excellence. I had double bunion surgery this spring, 2 weeks apart and I have never received such good care anywhere! From my first consultation until my post-op appointments, I have felt 100% confident that my feet were in the best of hands. The surgery was done at great surgery center and dr. Silverberg called the next day to check on me. I experienced almost no pain and used painkillers for only one day on each foot. I am now 6 weeks post surgery on one foot and 4 weeks on the other and I am thrilled with the results. If you are looking for a podiatrist - do not look any further. I also have to mention that Dr. Silverberg's entire staff (especially the ladies at the front desk) is the friendliest and most professional/efficient medical staff I have come across.
Open, and friendly but highly competent
He is amazing. Very professional. I highly recommend him.
I feel so fortunate that I found Dr. Silverberg. He performed a bunion surgery on my right foot a few months ago. I should praise his excellent knowledge, confidence and more than anything his extraordinary surgical skills. He did not only operate on my foot, he gave me a NEW foot. Thanks Dr. Silverberg.
Dr. Silverberg was thorough and not overly aggressive with a treatment plan, which I appreciated. He answered all of my questions and was friendly in doing so, making a dreaded visit much more pleasant than I expected. Highly recommended!
My visit to Dr. Silverberg was exemplary in every way. From the courteous and helpful receptionist to Dr. Silverberg's excellent assessment and treatment plan for my diagnosis, I was thoroughly impressed with his office and him.
Dr. Silverberg was great. He's knowledgeable and personable. He took the time to explain to me why I was having an issue. The office was professional and clean and the girls at reception were sweet. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Silverberg.
This was my first appointment and I need to do a follow-up. For a first visit he seemed quite knowledgeable. He spent time with me and didn't seem rushed. I am hoping he can make my foot feel better.
I chose Dr. Silverberg based on reviews (and location) and I totally agree with what everyone said. I had seen another doctor who completely missed a bone break in my foot on X-Ray (my bone is unusually small), but Dr. Silverberg saw it right away and suggested a very practical course of action. He is super personable and nice and explained everything extremely clearly, and his office staff were fast and efficient. Absolutely great experience!
Very approachable and knowledgable doctor.
Great, he is very professional, he treats very good his patients. My friend recommend he, i think was the Best choice. All the personal is nice.
My appointment with Dr. Silverberg was really great! Now I understand, why people say, that he is the best in his field. Dr. Silverberg is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, friendly and caring. He answered all my questions and described possible treatment options, paying attention to every tiny detail. One more good thing is that you don't need to go anywhere to have your x-ray done. He takes x-ray and uploads images right away at his office. On-line check-in is an extra bonus...Love it!
Dr. Silverberg was great. He took the time to explain the reasoning behind my injury, rather than just tell me the diagnosis. I have been to several Podiatrists over the years, and Dr. Silverberg was by far the best.
Doctor was thorough, good bedside manner. Didn't rush. I will return.
Very good consultation. Very knowledgeable and informative.
My experience with this office is the best I have had at with any doctor in new york. I am a person on a long quest to find a doctor whose office is well run, on schedule, and with a personable doctor who doesn't get in fights with me, or give me lazy/wrong information. His receptionist was super helpful and efficient, the waiting room has TONs of new magazines and the whole place is very nice and clean. Unfortunately I can't make Dr. Silverberg my primary care physician because of his specialty, otherwise I definitely would. He also sold me a great product that he has developed, which instantly improved the appearance of my toenails, which were dried out from nail polishes and acetone (I was afraid it was fungus but it wasn't, thank god).
I RECOMMENDED TO ANYONE! was a good choice of podiatric
Everything was grear. The doctor answered all my questions patiently and thoroughly.
I've seen many DPMs in the past, but no one has been as accommodating, thorough, caring and genuine as Dr. Silverberg. As a doctor, he knows exactly what needs to be done and offers practical recommendations and solutions. As a person, he's definitely someone I could call a friend. Just this year, Dr. Silverberg operated on 5 different parts of my foot, and all came out extraordinary. I have to say that my quality of life has increased tenfold after seeing him, and because of him I'm convinced that there are doctors out there that actually care. I can't thank Dr. Silverberg enough for helping me, and I'm grateful that his current and former patients took the time to leave reviews about him because more people should be aware of his excellence in podiatry.
Dr. Silverberg explained all of my options to me and was so friendly. He urged me to look at my own XRays to understand what the problem was / is, and made me feel very comfortable with my situation. Great experience!
The absolute best foot doctor in NYC. He's knowledgeable, warm and will provide a complete solution to your problem. I've recommended him to all my friends and family that were experiencing foot problems.
Best of the best!
Best dr. In NYC !!!!!!
I had bunion surgery, and he was wonderful from start to finish.
Explained everything, very personable and friendly. Answered my questions, accommodated my request for booking surgery when requested, helped to identify all options.
Wonderful, terrific doctor and an even better person. Treats you like family, doesn't hard sell his own products. Worked with me to solve a problem with my orthotics in the most economical way possible. A really great doctor!
Excellent Doctor..took time to explain and review everything...friendly, helpful and a doctor I felt I could trust!
I don't think I've ever been to an office visit where I was seen right away! Dr. Silverberg is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and took the time to explain my condition. The whole visit was great!!
Dr Silverberg was very thorough in his examination and clearly explained the reason why my pain was occuring. He doesn't immediately jump to surgery as the answer but ensures that you know all the possible responses to treat the problem. He also understands the praticality of everyday life and works to solve the problem most efficiently and effectively. Would highly recommend.
I really appreciated the time he spent explaining to me what I was seeing on the ultrasound and xray - very few take the time to do that. He was also friendly and very easy to talk to.
Quite accommodating and professional. Most certainly never felt rushed. Doctor is very knowledgeable in his background.
Took an x-ray of my feet and was able to upload the image in less than a minute. He thoroughly answered all of my questions. I did not feel my appointment was rushed.
I was very pleased as he explained with detail my condition as well as my options.
This was my first visit to Dr. Silverberg. He was very professional and helpful. He took his time explaining everything to me. I would recommend him to those looking for a Podiatrist.
Dr. Silverberg does a great job - I give him my highest recommendation!
Very personable, friendly and explained everything well
Excellent diagnostician, straightforward recommendations, patient and detailed explanations- a down to earth guy trying to do right by the patient
I found Dr. Silverberg by looking at reviews like this one. I saw all 5 stars on hundreds of reviews and thought..."seems odd, but I will give him a try." Well, here I am...adding to the 5 star reviews! What a great experience! The office staff was friendly, Dr. Silverberg was personable, very knowledgable on my condition (Morton's Neuroma) and gave me several treatment options. He is so passionate about his craft that he even took an x-ray of a past bunion surgery I had undergone for his own personal review. His office is clean and modern and I was just all smiles leaving that appointment. He is definitely on my referral list!
This was my first visit to see Dr. Silverberg and I was not disappointed in the least. He as well as all the staff were very friendly and professional. I was very comfortable with Dr. Silverberg and she was very reassuring that I was in capable hands and that he could definitely help me with my problem. Thanks so much Dr. Silverberg, and I am looking forward to our next visit with positive results!
Problem resolved. Short wait, great to speak to, answered questions, accommodating, etc.
Very informative-great manner
Extremely professional and very nice! I would definitely recommend Dr. Silverberg!
Overall experience was positive. Early appointments available, very short wait time (under 10 minutes), friendly staff, and attentive and friendly bedside manner all pluses.
I'd never been to a podiatrist before and I wasn't sure what to expect, but Dr. Silverberg was really great. He was very friendly and approachable, and I appreciated that he took time to explain the procedure he would be performing. He asked me a few questions while he was working (probably to distract me from the pain) and easily answered all of my questions to put me at ease. If any of my friends ever ask me whether I know a good podiatrist in the city, I plan to recommend Dr. Silverberg!
Dr. Silverberg is a phenomenal podiatrist as evidenced by his knowledge, teaching skills, efficiency, and charisma. He explained how my foot problems contributed to my persistent knee pain and outlined everything I needed to know about orthotics and follow-up care. He even used a foot model to explain the mechanics of my injury. Dr. Silverberg is definitely the best at what he does and is very passionate about it. His office staff and waiting room environment also put me at ease.
He told straight forward what my problem was and what the options were so that I decided what I wanted to do.
I can honestly say that I actually didn't mind having an ingrown toenail after visiting Dr. Silverberg. He has a great personality and makes you feel so comfortable as a patient. He is very gentle and I didn't feel any pain when he gave me my shots. He explained my problem in a language that I could understand and clearly laid out my options and I felt I could make an informed decision about how I wanted to proceed. The office staff is extremely friendly as well. This is one doctors office you won't dread going to. Thanks Dr. Silverberg, your the best.
Dr. Silverberg has certainly earned his reputation as the best foot doctor in NYC. I have been struggling with bunion pain for years and decided to undergo the surgical procedure to have one corrected. Unlike several other doctors I had consulted, Dr. Silverberg made me feel perfectly comfortable by thoroughly explaining the cause of the condition, detailing the procedure and completely managing my expectations. I immediately knew I had found the right man for the job. The pain was minimal compared to other stories I have heard and Dr. Silverberg even called me over Thanksgiving to check up on me. I will undoubtedly return to Dr. Silverberg for any future podiatric needs and highly recommend him to anyone in search of a podiatrist for any ailment. Thanks again Dr. Silverberg!
Great doctor - explained everything thoroughly.
Dr Silverberg is very professional and knowledgable, and has an excellent personal manner about him. He set me up immediately for a needed MRI, same day, which saved me a lot of time and trouble. I am glad for comments recorded, like this, on the website, which led me to this doctor.
Great Doctor! Really knows his craft! Office was clean and professional.
Dr. Silverberg has been amazing. My first appointment with him was 6 days before leaving on a 2 week trip to Europe. I had been suffering with foot and leg pain and had seen another podiatrist who did nothing to help the problem. Dr. Silverberg put a rush order on orthotics and got them to me the day I was leaving for my trip. He even managed to see my himself for the fitting despite the fact that he was incredibly busy because he was also leaving for vacation. He also understands how important it is for me to find the root cause of my pain and has referred me on to several other doctors. Despite the fact that his job as my doctor is done, he has still requested I keep in touch and update him as to how my diagnosis/treatment are going.
First time visit went great. He knows his stuff, explains it clearly, and is really great to work with.
Dr Silverberg was amazing! Not only could I tell that he really cared about me as a patient, but he took the time to explain in detail what the problems were with my feet and what was causing these problems in the first place. He even had a model which showed all of the bones of the foot so he could illustrate my specific condition and also showed me my x-ray and explained that as well. He answered all of my questions in a professional yet easy to understand manner. I would with no doubt recommend Dr Silverberg.
I had been using a previous doctor with unsatisfactory results as my condition persisted. I came across Dr. Silverberg through an internet search as he was conveniently located. I have been extremely happy with his level of professionalism and his ability to explain my condition and proper treatment in a clear, concise manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great podiatrist.
Dr Silverberg is simply the best. As soon as my paperwork was done, I was on my way into the exam room. He checked my ankle, shot xrays and reviewed them with me, explained the mechanics of the foot and how my fracture occured. His staff got immediate approval from my health insurance company for a MRI, and I was scheduled for the next day. I was fit with a boot & healing schedule. Follow-up call came as promised. All done with a smile and engaging style. He gave me the time I needed and answered all my questions. Never rushed. Great healthcare experience. If you need a foot doc... he's your man.
Best podiatrist I've seen! I've really only seen one other podiatrist, but that aside, he was really great. He was actually able to see me early and after he fitted me for orthodics I found out his are cheaper than any other podiatrist's. Seriously, he was really great and I'm (oddly) looking forward to my follow-up appointment in a few weeks! He was really accommodating to my needs, which I appreciated.
Great doctor who had the patience to answer a barrage of questions I threw at him. Great bedside manner and that he had an awesome sense of humor was a huge plus.
overall a great experience, i would highly recommend him to friends and family
Dr. Silverberg was really nice and professional. He easily diagnosed my problems and clearly explained my options. I felt assured that his assessment was correct and will definitely be working with him in the future.
Dr. Silverberg was extremely knowledgeable and talked me through the causes of my foot pain and explained potential solutions in detail. He also has the cheapest prices for orthotics that I have found. He's also just a really nice guy, I highly recommend him. The office asks you to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment (to fill out paperwork, etc) which is actually great because it keeps the doctor on schedule.
Dr. Silverberg was very informative and was taken his time examine my feet and explained to me in details in a simple comprehensive way. I've left with clear understanding of the steps I'll have to take to get my feet functioning asa well as possible. I'd whole heartedly recommend him to any of my friends!
I arrived early for my appointment and Dr. Silverberg was able to see me early! The appointment was pain-free and Dr. Silverberg explained everything to me in simple terms that I could understand. I am definitely going to continue to see Dr. Silverberg for all of the surgery that my poor, deformed foot needs.
Dr. Silverberg is clearly a skilled and experienced doctor. He spent a considerable amount of time with me without rushing through the exam. I felt comfortable asking him questions and received excellent and honest feedback in return. I would definitely recommend this doctor to immediate family members and close friends.
Dr. Silverberg was very informative and took time to explain the issues I have during both my visits. He was also helpful in navigating me through the available options and solutions. Both he and the office staff are pleasant to deal with, and best of all, very little wait time. I would highly recommend a visit to Dr. Silverberg. A.B.
Dr. Silverberg was excellent. He thoroughly explained my diagnosis and treatment and was quite funny to as well. Highly recommended.
Dr. Silverberg was very detailed in describing my condition to me, which made it much easier to understand. He also did a thorough job of explaining my treatment options. I had a pleasant visit to his office, and I highly recommend him!
It took a few visits, but Doctor Silverberg has saved me from a lifetime of very bothersome ingrown toe nails, on both feet. After years of dealing with infections, and one or two very informative appointments with Dr. Silverberg, I finally decided to have the roots of the nails permanently removed. As bad as that sounds, Dr. Silverberg made it as painless as possible, which is pretty rare when there are big needles involved. Such a relief to know, that I never have to deal with the pain and infections again, already recommended him on Facebook to my friends.
Dr. Silverberg was great! He was very nice, very professional and is clearly one of the top doctors in his profession...I will definitely be referring my family and friends to him!
Dr. Silverberg was great! He took the time to do a full exam and review of my background himself even though another doctor in his office had previously treated me. Dr. Silverberg is very personal able, doesn't rush you and conveys a real sense of knowledge and concern. I will be back for sure and would highly recommend ~ Matt
Great experience all around, office was convenient clean professional. Dr Silverberg made an unpleasant experience great, highly recommend him and the office to anyone.
