This was my first time visiting this paticular eyecare doctor. She was amazing, and very helpful. I scheduled on ZocDoc about 3 hours prior to the appt. I came in, she did more in 30 min. then I have ever haddone in my liftetime of going to eye doctors. I left with trial contacts, just very happy, I could see. So I definitely recommend Dr. Silvestre. Even scheduled my daughter an appt. while there.

Very helpful, took her time with me to explain everything, as this was my first time being prescribed glasses. She was extremely thorough, explained every procedure, and gave me plenty of options. Would definitely recommend her to friendsand family. There was a repeat customer who came in before me, who was treated like a friend by Dr. Silvestre. She is very accommodating, professional, an expert, and will work with your insurance to find you options!

I took my dad to have an annual eye exam. Dr. Silvestre is really sweet and showing care to her patient. She takes time to try to understand my dad's broken English. We felt comfortable in the appointment. We'd likely to come back again.

The doctor was wonderful. She had a lot of patience with my child. The only complaint that I have is for the man at the front desk. He needs practice in customer service. He did not greet or acknowledge me whenI entered. When he asked me to gold he didnt even make eye contact. Seemed like he had an attitude and just wasn't friendly. I believe its important in every business to have people smile and greet customers or clients because it gives the whole business an impression. Overall the other staff was nice, friendly and professional.

I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Silvestre. I came in for a consult regarding some recent issues with floaters and concern about potential symptoms of a serious condition. Dr. Silvestre did a detailed exam and testing to assure that therewere no serious issues. I was very pleased with her thorough exam.
