Dr.Wesam Silk is very professional treats his customer with respect and dignity. And it is realy good to have Dr's like him to be around pt's.
I did not like the way he treated me. I think he was very impersonal and he did not perform in my opinion a full exam of my eyes. It felt like he was doing a systematic procedure and he was not dealing with another human being.
Did not like how he treated me. I did not felt that he really cared about my eye health and about examine my eyes health completely and really putting an effort to tackle any issues I might have. I am not seeing well while reading but he did not noticed because he did not ask me anything about it neither tested my vision for possible anomalies.
Although there was a 40 minute wait for my appoinment. Dr. Silk apologized profusely explaining that he had 2 emergencies earlier in the day. This was my first visit and I was completely satisfied with his thoroughness and considered recommendations.
I really like this Doctor...He was friendly, compassionate and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend him!
I had read a negative feedback for this doctor and I was hesitant about using him. What a surprise he was wonderful. Dr. Silk is a down to earth guy. He was friendly and professional at the same time! He took his time and the exam was unrushed and thorough ! He took time to make sure I was comfortable and explained everything in detail. I highly recommend him to everyone.
Wonderful. Thanks for your excellent services.
I didn't feel like I was treated like an important patient, like all patients should. I felt somewhat dismissed by the doctor and that my condition while not dire, was not taken seriously to them. I was given no relief for my eye. After all of this, I still have pain.
