Patient reviews for Dr. Roy Silver
It was quick and Dr Silver and his staff are very friendly! Overall a positive experience.
Doctor was kind and straightforward. I'm sure he is thorough, but he spent no more than 2 mins total with me, including exam, diagnosis, and next steps. He just seemed very rushed, not his fault necessarily, because the waiting room was almost completely full of patients. Honestly, it felt a bit like a factory. I had a potentially scary issue and would have liked to ask some questions, but I just didn't have time to even process the info he gave me. I ended up calling another doctor later to share what Dr. Silver diagnosed and prescribed, then asked all my follow up questions. That other doctor actually took time (10 mins) to answer all my questions and concerns, and I felt so much better and so much more prepared to manage the next steps of treatment.
quick appointment and
I was a tad worried since this was my first prenatal visit and I needed clearance to travel, but the entire experience was reassuring. Dr. Silver made feel at ease that the little speck was growing where he/she needed to be growing. His bedside manner was great too. I’ve read that many people were upset he wasn’t staying longer but once he’s seen you and seen everything is fine what else do you need from your doctor right? There were MANY mothers waiting to be seen and he was doing his best to attend to everyone as soon as he could. I don’t feel like he skimped, he even had enough time to talk about my follow up appointment and what to expect. So far I really like him and think we’ll be sticking with him. As for the wait time. It took a long time to verify my medical insurance for some reason. Could be my recent name change to my married name. I waited about an hour. I also read something about parking. They validate in their neighbor’s parking garage so don’t worry about that.
I used to like this doctor and I drove like 45 minutes just to see him but I’m not satisfied about my last visit because I felt like unimportant patient and he didn’t give me a chance to ask him all the questions..
Dr. Silver and his staff are as good as it gets. His waiting room is always full because he's so good at what he does (they move through patients quickly so don't be alarmed by the crowd), and he gives each and every one of his patients exceptional care. He delivered my breach son via C-section at Cedars Sinai hospital at 39 weeks, and it wasn't easy for him to get me in this early. Cedars was completely booked up that week and he was only in town for a small 24-hour period, but he still managed to get my C-section scheduled early so I wouldn't go into pre-term labor. At a world class hospital like Cedars Sinai, where celebrities and non-famous people alike travel from all over to have their babies, this is no easy feat. But he got this done for me and I was so grateful. He also took a flight out of town right after delivering the baby - this just shows how dedicated he is to his patients even when he has a lot going on. I also recovered from my C-section very quickly because he is so good at administering them. Some people are out for weeks but I was up and walking the next day and feeling almost no pain a week later. The women who run his offices are incredible. I've been to the downtown and Beverly Hills locations many times, and both sets of staff are great. They are very responsive over the phone and always willing to help if you think you have some sort of health issue and aren't sure if it's worth seeing the doctor about. The woman who manages the front desk downtown is very funny and compassionate and knows all the patients on a first name basis despite the heavy flow of people coming through the doors. The nurses have a great sense of humor and are good at what they do as well. Dr. Kong, who also works at this practice, is amazing at what she does as well. If you want a doctor who really cares about you and is highly competent, go with Dr. Silver. We will never be able to thank him enough for getting our family of three off to such a great start, and we look forward to continuing to go to him for our family planning needs.
Excellent doctor. Saw me very quickly and answered all my questions. Efficient and calm exam and bedside manner.
Medi call!! Help me. I need my tar approved!!
Great doctor and staff. Just wish the wait weren't so long.
Dr. Silver is professional and kind. He answered all of my questions and made himself available for any follow up inquiries I might have. I didn’t feel rushed or dismissed, and all my questions were addressed. The appointment went very well, and everything was done well and in a timely manner.
The staff was really great and there was no wait time. However, I felt unimportant as a patient. There must be only one patient evaluation room because my appointment was extremely rushed. As I was putting my clothes on, they requested I “hurry.” Also, they NEVER called with my test results. I had to call a total of three times to get my results (months later). If you are looking at creating a solid relationship with your OBGYN, I recommend going elsewhere. If you don’t care and just want the job done quickly, here is the place. LAST NOTE: They do not offer parking validation.
He is seriously the best. Quick, thorough, knowledgable, great bedside manner. I've been going to Dr. Silver for half a year now and I'm so glad he's delivering our first kid. He referred me to a great endocrinologist when we learned of my thyroid disorder and has done an excellent job keeping me in good health for my pregnancy. If you live in LA and want an OBGYN who is competent, warm, result-driven, and straightforward, he's your guy.
They don’t pick up the phone during office hours to get important test results that they should be calling you for. Unacceptable and unprofessional
I went to Dr. Roy to get a second opinion about some pain I was experiencing, so glad I did! Dr. Roy was able to give me a diagnosis and tell me the cause of my pain. The first doctor I went to was unable to do so, I was sent home not knowing what was wrong with me. Dr. Roy is very thorough but fast. I was out of the office in about an hour or less. He also ran some additional testing which in my opinion is awesome. If needed I will definitely be returning to his office. Great doctor and staff!!
I've seen Dr Silver 3 times so far and he is so thorough and amazing! He truly cares about each patient and doesn't make you feel rushed.
Dr. Silver is incredible. His office was packed with patients today, but my wait time was still very reasonable. When he saw me, he was courteous and took his time answering my many questions. He did a great job analyzing my ultrasound, drawing diagrams so that I (someone without a medical background) could understand, and overall just really went the extra mile to make sure that I left feeling comfortable. If you're like me, someone who wants a doctor that makes you feel that he genuinely cares, I would recommend Dr. Silver in a heartbeat.
Very professional, kind, and quick! Great service, would highly recommend :)
I would not recommend him. It was such a quick and rush exam and I didn't feel I was cared at all
10 out of 10. I was running exceptionally late for being a new patient and the nice staff still managed to accommodate me very quickly. My saving grace was that I was able to check in and fill out new patient forms here on the Zocdoc app before my appointment. I went for a Pap smear and honestly it was the quickest and most painless time I have ever spent at any OB-GYN period. The doctor, nurses, and front desk were all very professional and throughly addressed all of my questions and concerns. In and out in less than 20 minutes with that kind of service, I would highly recommend this office to any woman seeking a new OB-GYN.
So AWESOME! Quick, nice, and informative! Would definitely recommend him for anyone!!
I felt very dismissed by Dr. Silver. He didn't address my concerns or really listen what I had to say before pushing a method of treatment that had been ineffective in the past on me and telling me it was my only option. He also didn't examine the correct side of my body (re what was giving me problems) before sending me on my way.
Dr Silver delivered my son. He was an amazing dr
I metered my parking spot for an hour for JUST a consultation. I got a ticket because of the slow process fill it out form WHICH I already sent all information from Zoc to the doctor's office and STILL a lady copied it again to the computer....does not make sense...
Always a pleasant experience with Dr. Silver. The team is efficient and quick. Best doctor I've been to yet!
I had a fantastic time at this office. The staff was friendly, highly informed about my case, and completely educated in their field. I really enjoyed it!
Wonderful experience and no wait time!!
The staff and the doctor were both very nice and made me feel comfortable.
To be the first visit. It was really good Dr. Silver is very nice. I totally recommend Him.
Wonderful Doctor and staff!
PARKING: It gets packed fast so arrive early to get a spot Staff: They were all friendly and worked with one person at a time, giving each person full attention. Wait Time: Not bad at all, I'd say I waited about 10 minutes before I got called to the back to see the doctor. Dr. Roy Silver: AMAZING, INFORMATIVE, CARING AND SO SUPER FRIENDLY. He took care and showed much interests in my health though this was the 1st time I met him. It was like he knew me already. I will definitely go back and yes, i definitely recommend him. make your appointment and see for yourself.
The staff and Dr are very nice by it seemed as if Dr. Silver was in a rush. He was in my room for maybe 5mins before running out. I was disappointed they wouldn't let me record the ultrasound. My boyfriend was in jail and missed the appt and finding out the gender so I was gonna record it so he could see it after his release but they told me I couldn't.
He's the only gyno I'll see in LA! I pick my insurance based around him, that says enough.
It was my first visit with Dr. Silver. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and ability to put me at ease. I was really nervous when I came and I left feeling calm and that my issues had been addressed. I will definitely be going back in the future.
He is a great doctor , did more than I expected
I thought I liked this guy, and then it came to a week before I need to leave before my 1 year anniversary in Maui and I called Monday, weds, and fri to get a birth control refill and no one ever called me back. I then called the emergency line tonight before I leave for my trip and they hung up on me. So essentially, i guess dr. Silver is getting patients by forcing them to have sex without birth control. I shall be going to a walk in clinic tomorrow to get it (which I don't have time for)...but unfortunately dr. Silvers office has no time for me. Good luck,
This office is great, it's so convenient that I can make my appointment on the ZocDoc app. Dr. Silver is just an amazing doctor. Very personable and goes out of his way to answer any questions that I might have. Great staff and clean environment!
The front desk ladies can seem a little standoffish when you go into the office. However, once you are taken into the back, the nurses and the doctor are nothing but lovely and accommodating. They are fully engaged with what you need and even go further to ask if there is anything else that should be addressed while you are there.
Staff was rude, office was dirty, and doctor had very poor bedside manner.
was my first and last vist exam room unsatisfactory steel vaginal inserts stacked up in the sink trash can full to the max rushed in and rushed out
Very nice and helpful. He is definitely going to be my main Physician from now on. Staff was really nice as well. Clean waiting room and short wait which is a wonderful plus.
The doctor was very pleasant
The dr was friendly and nice most of the time was waiting before and after getting my blood drawn visit with dr was about 5 minutes
Dr Silver is great. He is quick, accurate and gets to the point. Know's I am not a fan of medication so tells me what I can do without needing to take meds. I tell him the issues I am having and finds out what they are.He's just an overall good doctor.
Doctor Roy Silver was fantastic, very friendly and answered all of my [mostly dumb] questions. I highly recommend him. The office though was very sketchy and did not feel very sanitary... I don't think I'll return to it. Overall, the doctor was great, and that's what you're really going for right?
I did not love the area of the downtown office, or the very limited parking, but Dr. Silver was very kind, patient, and made me feel welcome and respected. He addressed my questions thoroughly and found answers quickly that I felt suited me well. I would recommend him, but maybe at a different location. He works at two others.
Dr Silver is so gentle and great. He's very quick and patient and I feel very comfortable going to him.
Dr Silver always is kind and listens, which is important.
It was super super quick and easy. For someone who only has normal paps, that's what I want and that's what I got. He was very nice though.
Dr. Roy Silver was wonderful. His front staff however made the experience terrible. They are incompetent and they never return phone calls. I will be looking for another OB-GYN because I can't deal with his front staff.
Great, I could tell he had warm relationships with the other patients in the office.
