This was my first time and I had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I waited less than 10 minutes to see Dr Silverman. He was funny, warm, thorough and knowledgeable. I have been sick on and off for thepast 2 months and in the hospital 2 times. I have seen several doctors without resolution. Dr. Silverman went the extra mile and on my first visit he figured out the problem!! I highly recommend him.

The wait was way to long. I was there for about an hour an a half and most of that time was spent waiting for he doctor or his nurses.

Dr. didn't return my emergency call to his service, he called in Rx to wrong pharmacy, voicemails and messages left through his website not returned. He did tests on me couldn't find anything wrong with me and didn't know what todo for me, which is ok I'm a reasonable person I know doctors are not god but all the other stuff is outrageous. I had to suggest a certain drug which would make me feel better. I had to press him for another urine culture test which came back the next day, which it was negative, but bearing in mind that the doctor knew I was in alot of discomfort he nor anyone else had the courtesy to let me know the result until I called at end of week. I had to press him for the antibiotic through the emergency line. By the way my bladder was empty and I asked his assistant to please provide some water -- he brings me 1 cup and then I had to ask again which still wasn't enough. I wound up having to go back the next day to give urine. He acknowledged that I was in pain and seemed sympathetic and nice in the beginning. What a phony. His office manager is rude. His colleague rudely wedged into my consultation with Dr. Silverman as I was entering the room and I had to stand outside in the hallway waiting for him to leave. He's running a school there too which is weird and if I had from the beginning seen the painting of the bullfighter with the speared bleeding bull at his front desk I would have walked out immediately. Stay away!

Terrible Doctor, He doesn't care about his patients. I asked him a question about changing my diet because I had stomach problems he said the diet that is recommended for my problem doesn't matter because no one follows it. After ourfirst visit he made me come back for my results another time. They said they were going to call me when they had the results never did. So I called them when I went to the doctors office they made me pay just to obtain my results. Also the doctor made me wait in the waiting room for 2 hours and would walk by me like he didn't know me the entire time.
