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 mostfun moments I've ever spent at a doctor's office!!! <3

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'llfix 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!

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 ameasured 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. Thefoot 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.

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 carefullyand 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)

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.

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 goodcare 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.

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. Silverbergsaw 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!
