Dr. Jerry A. Silberman's Ratings
I feel that this is a very important review for people to read. I had what was apparently a plantar's wart on my foot for about 3 years. It was very painful, and I went to another podiatrist. He treated me for 6 months with all kinds of acids and it never went away, only became bigger and more painful. I then heard from a work colleague about Dr. Silberman and went to see him. He very calmly told me that he thinks what I have is not a wart, and proceeded to do a biopsy on it. One week later he called me and told me that what was on my foot was cancer, a malignant melanoma. He had me come in to his office separately after his office hours were over, and spent an hour with me and my husband explaining what exactly I had, what the treatment plan should be, and that it was important to treat it promptly. It turned out to be stage 2, but fortunately my lymph nodes were clean, and I did not need an amputation, which would have been necessary if it wasn't treated properly. I can only say thank you as much as possible to Dr. Silberman. I am not sure if podiatrists actually are thought by the public to ever save lives, but in my case, my oncologist told me without a question that he did in fact not only save my leg, but most likely my life. I owe him everything for what he has done for me.
I believe this doctor did a procedure on me WITHOUT telling what he was going to or explaining why I needed it. Up to that point he was fine.
Dr. Silberman is a very knowledgeable doctor, he knows his stuff to the extreme. He is also very nice to deal with and extremely punctual. The only reason I had to stop seeing him was that orthotic treatment failed and he didn't perform the surgery that I required. He consequently referred me to an orthopedic surgeon.
I had a list of questions for Dr.Silberman during my visit. Upon meeting Dr.Silberman he spend the better part of 20 minutes fully explaining not only what the procedure would entail but what to expect after the procedure and what I needed to do in the future.I didnt need to take my list of questions out of my pocket. Excellent service in a very personable manner. Highly recommend
This is a pretty much a pointless post, as it is completely redundant with what everyone else here is saying. I saw Dr. Silberman today - (a Saturday!!) - for the first time in 7 years for the same type of problem I had back then (a painful ingrown toenail), and he is EXACTLY as I remember him: Kind, caring, nice, personable, outgoing, knowledgable, and HELPFUL!!! He knows his stuff!! So much so that I hadn't a doubt in my mind that I would walk away from the office relieved. If you are on the fence about podiatrists, see Dr. Silberman!!! He is one of the absolute best doctors I have ever been to in my life, and definitly the nicest!
I went to see Dr. Silberman for an infected toe. He is not anywhere near my home but I went to him based on the positive reviews on this site and my negative experience with other podiatrists. He is amazing. He spent a lot of time with me explaining my options. He answered all my questions and was very caring and gentle while I had my procedure done. He even offered his cell phone number if I had any questions/concerns over the weekend. I truly wish all doctors were like him. I will gladly drive the 40 minutes to see him for any future issues with my feet.
Very efficient office. I have a horrible bunion (thanks to my mom), and have had a few different consultations. I just felt more comfortable with him than the others, and he actually talked me out of surgery for now. My foot looks bad, but he said since it doesn't hurt so much, I can wait. WHEW. What a relief. I'll probably need surgery in the next few years, and that is fine with me.
I have diabetes, and was told that I needed to have my little toe amputated by a surgeon. I was referred to Dr. Silberman, and it took almost 6 months, but the toe finally healed. I am just so grateful that he listened to what I had to say, and took the time to allow me to heal. I was so nervous the first time I went, and I spoke to others in the waiting room, and everyone spoke glowingly about him - and they were right.
I was laid off my job last year, and lost my insurance. I had been suffering from a painful toe, and had delayed seeing a dcotor because of the cost. This doctor operated on my toe and gave me a break on the cost, without which I could never got my toe fixed. He was very understanding of my situation, as was his staff. He's a real decent guy.
