There have been times when I went in there and I was messed up in the head for days after my visit wondering "what was all that about?" I do think she means well, she is just like anyone and has here on and off days. SHE DOES CARE, so even if she digs into you and is less than warm and fuzzy you have to remember that SHE DOES REALLY CARE and she wants you to get better. There are a lot of doctors that don't really care. They only care about the new swimming pool they are gonna put in their house next week. There are times I love Dr. Silverman and there are times I don't like her very much, but I know she always has my best interest at heart. She is noble person and at the end of the day I respect her a lot.||Respond|
Dr. Silverman is knowledgeable, compassionate and thorough. She has helped me through a very difficult time and followed through to insure my rehabilitation from back surgery.

Dr. Silverman was very thorough in conducting a physical examination as well as asking detailed questions about past medical conditions and my current physical work environment and exercise routine. I had no doubt that I had the Dr’s undivided attention and that she had my best interests in mind. Dr. Silverman strongly advised against surgery and clearly explained why. She gave me alternative ways to resolve the issue. If any surgeon makes you feel rushed to have surgery performed for a physical trauma or disability, see Dr. Silverman first!
