I was very nervous and tired from a migraine headache that was going on for several days. Dr. Silverman was very empathetic. He addressed my concerns and questions from every angle and even gave me several options on how to address the pain. He also had given me a source of information that I could follow up with and learn more about in order to control the migraines. I feel extremely comfortable with a professional that can offer sources of their information in order to learn and make better decisions about my treatments going forward.

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 was prifessional 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. Waited for 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 results to another doctor in another country to actually get a better understanding and follow up advice.
