Verified Patient Reviews
Came around Dr. Silverman thru ZocDoc and was very impressed by his background/knowledge both within the reason for my visit plus what I thought I’d have to see another specialists for, he was able to take care of it all within that visit. I give him 5 Stars across the board !!
Dr. Silverman is excellent. He is professional & a kind physician. He has been helpful in monitoring/treating my spouse's blood pressure and overall health. I highly recommend.
He's an excellent physician. A++ (!!!) :-))

Very friendly, helpful, and accomodating; all staff was very friendly and helpful
Dr Silverman is always kind and professional!
Dr Silverman was great. Patient and thorough, he answered all my questions.
Dr. Silverman is a world-class professional. He is in the top 5% of any medical professional that I have encountered. He is insightful, kind, witty and smart as they come.
Doctor Silverman is friendly and willing to listen. His physical exams are not as thorough as my previous PCP's, but I think he would go deeper if he detected something troubling.
Thanks for the help Doc!
Busy office. Dr was very competent. Highly recommend.
Dr Silverman listens and makes me feel a part of the healthy process, and not a case number.
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.
Dr. Silverman is excellent. He is very inquisitive and is happy to discuss any kind of concern I have. He also had me see his on-site dietician when I was in and that was a great addition to my visit.
Very knowledgable and genuine concern for my situation. His conclusions made very good sense to me and I feel confident that we are on the right path to healing.
He kept worrying about how I was going to pay for the visit. And he didn't prescribe me what I actually needed for my pain.
Absolutely EXCELLENT service; I was served immediately and was the utmost care and professionalism. It may sound cliché but there actually is no other way to describe the service I received in Dr. Silverman's office, both from him and his wonderful nurse Ms. Betty!
From the time I walked in until the time I left, it was a very pleasant experience. I would differently recommended this office.
It was very comforting/relaxing. Dr. Silverman was very professional while still maintaining the friendly human element. A good Man/Dr. -Pleased Patient.
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 possible to 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.
Great office and service's provided. Excellent Doctor highly recommend him.
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 even went 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.
I was seen quickly and found the office atmosphere laid back and friendly. Everyone was helpful and Dr. Silverman was professional and engaging.
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.
I really appreciate Dr. Silverman. He's well spoken and very knowledgable. Bedside manner is wonderful. I feel like I'm talking with a friend with him.
Dr. Silverman is responsive and easy to reach via text and email.
Dr. Silverman's bedside manner was exceptional!
Very friendly and helpful.
I was content but not thrilled w him.
Great family doctor. Actually meets you at his scheduled appointment time. Very reachable and convenient location.
He was very cordial and friendly. He made me very comfortable.
It was a good visit. He listened to my concerns. And he took the next steps to eases my mind.
He is a very polite and respectful person.
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 my co-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.
Good doctor but other factors could be better. He seemed sharp and he cared about my problems, but he was rushing through, so not at all my concerns were able to be discussed. I was more than 15 min early for my appointment, but apparently it was first come first serve, as there is a sign in sheet and whoever signs first gets to see the doc first. Without time as a constraint, the experience would have been great. Maybe it was just today.
I really like Dr Silverman,When I was there he was in the office alone due to his secretary running late,as soon as i walked in ,he came right to the front introduced himself and that in itself surprised me.Never have I had a Dr make me feel so welcome.Love this Dr and he will be my Primary from here on out!
Great Dr took the time to hear me. He was going to check into a few things he was not sure of and let me know.
I was extremly pleased with Dr. Silverman.
In just one visit I knew this was the Doctor I wanted overseeing my health. Exceptionally friendly greeting from office staff. Nicely appointed waiting area. He was ready at 3:30pm on the dot, my appointment time. There was minimal work regarding insurance, which meant the time was spent with understanding why I was visiting, and answering question directly related and relevant to what I was asking. I absolutely recommend Dr. Silverman.
Dr. was very Knowledgable a extremely professional
Very nice doctor and made sure to answer all questions with certainty. Would go back to him with any other questions.
For being an infectious disease specialist the "consult" was a joke and waste of time. He didnt even examine me as well as canceled the followup visit. Ordered no labs. Nothing! Like I said waste of time I was sent away feeling hopeless and suicidal. It didnt help having my menses of the day of the visit. Lol.
Dr. Silverman was very professional and thorough. I will be using him as my primary Dr. from now on and highly recommend him.
Booked the appointment on short notice, and were seen promptly. Doctor and office staff were friendly; visit with the doctor was efficient without feeling rushed. The doctor processed our co-pays himself!
I was disappointed in the overall lack of professionalism and rushed attitude I was treated with by this office. The staff were very kind and welcoming to me as a new patient, and helped me to find the office over the phone, however I was unimpressed with their lack of organization. As a brand new patient, a physical exam wasn't even performed and I had to ask for my blood pressure to be taken.. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone who is looking for a general practitioner or a family doctor.
Very professional and informative. I would recommend this doctor to friends and family members.
Dr. Silverman listened and engaged in genuine dialogue about our concerns. He seems very knowledgeable. I was unable to find his office and he even gave me walking directions while on the phone with him to his office!!
I usually hate visits to a doctor's office. Dr. Silverman immediately put me at ease and made the experience a breeze. I'm over-the-moon about having a doctor who I like so much. I highly recommend him.
As of July 31st 2014 I have not received any information regarding my test results...according to the lab the results were back, My wait time to see the Doctor was reasonable, I was taken back to see the Dr within a timely manner. The Dr seemed competent,however his bedside mannerisms made me uncomfortable.I would not want to continue a Patient - Dr, relationship, this was my first time visiting this Doctor and only went there because he appeared to be the only provider in my network. I had no referrals from anyone. Just went there on my own. I tried calling the office on July 30th 2014 but to no avail. I would like my test results from this Dr, ASAP.
He is a great doctor. I strongly recommend him
