Ratings for Dr. Leonard Silverstein
Dr Leonard Silverstein is a gem. He is knowledgeable, professional, excellent bedside manner and genuinely cares about his patients. The staff and nurses are great as well. The office is very clean and inviting. I definitely recommend him. It's hard to find good doctors today. It's no wonder he's received best doctor awards several years in a row.
This doctor is fabulous! He never rushes you. He listens and he cares. He is always right on with his diagnosis and treatment. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I appreciate that I rarely if ever wait for more than 5 minutes in waiting room. Once in a room the wait is never over 5 minutes either. I have been a patient for over 15 years and have found everything I said to be true throughout this time frame. Thank you to the doctor and his whole staff!
Likes to prescribe many different meds for one problem. Some doctors, most doctors evaluate your problem and introduce one medication at a time. Not this doc. Loves to throw drugs at your problem.
I was very disappointed with my appointment with Dr. Silverstein. He practically laughed at me when I told him what was bothering me. Then he told me that my condition was so bad that I would have to get a (more expensive) blood test done instead of the usual skin prick test. I told him I wasn't able to afford the $1,000 for the test. So he wrote me a prescription for prednisone and gave me a pat on the back (I'm not joking). I couldn't believe what happened. I could've gotten prednisone from my family doctor! I wasted money that I honestly couldn't afford to lose. The only good thing was that the other staff members were quite friendly and professional with me.
Staff and timing were fine. Interactions with Dr Silverstein, while he was very pleasant, was also very dismissive and patronizing. While not telling me it was all in my head, he did wave away any prior diagnosis as me being very reactive and former allergist at major research center as not knowing what they were doing.
