This was my first appointment with Dr. Silverman and it went very well. There was minimal paperwork and hadly any wait before meeting with the doctor. My partner came with me and Dr. Silverman made us both feel comfortable. He wasprifessional but still very friendly. He took the time ro answer all of our questions and then followed up by email after my visit. Overall, it was one of the better visits to a doctor's office that I have had.

Doc has great bedside manners, very attentive and listens. Only problem is the check in: scheduled an appointment with ZocDoc and the appointment time was not honored. I arrived 10 minutes early and no one was at the front desk. Waitedfor 10 minutes and had to call the office line to get someone to come out. Was told to put my name on a list and folks with later appointments (I asked them) were seen before me. Had to wait 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment to be seen. Not the biggest deal but know you need to get there early.

He was great except for interpereing the results. I did not get a detailed explanation on my diagnosis and did not get any advice on following up with further looking into my problem. I had to send my reports and resultsto another doctor in another country to actually get a better understanding and follow up advice.

Dr. Silverman seemed knowledgeable about different skin ailments, which is what I was being treated for, but in identifying my rash he used his phone to look up pictures and symptoms of different rashes. I understand it may not be possibleto know exactly what a rash is off the top of your head, but it was odd to see a doctor referring to websites that I could have easily found myself. I went in for an expert opinion, not to continue browsing the web the way I had been on my own. That said, once we narrowed down options for what it possibly could be, he knew exactly what to prescribe for different skin ailments and offered good insight into how I should go about handling it. Maybe this is the norm for many doctors, I'm not sure, but it felt a bit odd to have to do research in a place where I believed the doctor to be an automatic expert. Overall, really nice guy, communicated well, and seemed genuinely interested in my health while we discussed how to go about fixing my skin.

I think the visit was very professional thorough and beneficial to me. Dr. Silverman's office is neat and clean. His secretary was very respectful and kind. Dr. Silverman was well dressed, engaging, and very concerned about my health. He evenwent online to help me find a BP cuff that would fit my arm! I was very appreciative of that. The visit was beyond my expectations. To make things even better, the wait was not long at all. I highly recommend this office and physician.

Great internist. Professional, courteous, and prompt. When I got to the office for a physical a few minutes early, he came up to me in the waiting room personally, introduced himself, and took me back. After my appointment, I paid myco-pay directly with him (he uses a Square device for credit cards). It was truly a personal experience. He is also prompt with email, which is convenient for me. I've already recommended him and will continue to do so.
