Dr. Scott L. Silverstein's Ratings
Dr. Silverstein performed rotator cuff surgery on me and from the initial visit where we discussed therapy to try to avoid surgery,to the decision to have surgery, the surgery itself, and the follow up visits, Dr. Silverstein was phenomenal. He made me AND MY WIFE comfortable about what was going to happen and how we'd deal with it. We came with several questions but he'd answered them all without us having to ask.
I've seen some reviews on Erica, his assistant. No, she's not the overly effusive and bubbly type, but she's certainly friendly and helpful and she will DEFINITELY get the admin things you need taken care of done. This is immeasurable when you're facing all the paperwork, appointments, insurance checkboxes, etc. prior to the surgery. The Hickory Ridge surgical center and staff were great too.
Hopefully I won't need to, but if I ever need another ortho doc, he's the one I'm going to.
Hmmm. I had a better experience than the last guy. He did both my partial knees and my rotator in my shoulder. Good guy, did a great job but crazy busy. He does always ask if you have more questions on the way out too.
I picked him because of the reviews, and felt like I should leave one after having seen him. He spent literally 10 minutes with me, and didn't even read my paperwork (yes, I'm sure of it - he was clueless to something very important). I had questions I wasn't able to ask in that time, and the PA never left. I prefer doctor's appointments to be between me and a doctor, not some third party standing there.
This is one of those places where you get herded through, only seeing the actual doctor for a few minutes. I don't feel like it's worth going to a doctor who is just going to ask what the reports said and then repeat it back to you with barely a physical exam.
Dr. Silverstein treated my elderly mother for severe arthritis in her shoulder. He was compassionate and gentle. She is not a candidate for surgery, but at least she is not nervous and upset when she has to see him. Thumbs up!
Dr. Silversteim performed a partial left knee replacement about 1 yer ago. After about 4 months I was back to plying golf with no knee brace and no pain. Dr. Silverstein is a very skilled surgeon and is dedicated to appropriate rehab and follow-up care. I would highly recommend him for any joint or bone issues.
