Ratings for Dr. Lawrence I. Silverberg
he misdiagnosed myself,my son and my daughter in less than 6 months. I had a breast infection after the birth of my son. When I called to make an appointment, the receptionist told me the office was to busy, it sounded like the flu to her I should take some tylenol and ride it out. I was angry, so I sat in the office for almost 2 hrs and when I got in and told the doctor what had happened when I called and he straight out called me a liar, wrote me a persciption and barged out of the room.
Dr Silverberg has an excellent medical knowledge, to complement his distinct manners. If you need a flashy doctor with high-tech waiting room, this may not be the practice for you. How ever if you are looking for a Doctor who treats the whole person, not just the symptoms you are in the right place. Although his surgery could do with little re-decorating, his polite bedside manners, his smiley face, and the way he makes time to include you with in the treatment plan makes-up more than the latest fashion decorations. Our whole family has been his patient for years, when we first moved from UK we changed couple of doctors and paediatricians, but luckily we get to meet him an felt at home straight away.
Great bedside manner, very caring. Not afraid to admit when he doesn't know something, or wants to make sure, and will call a specialist he knows while you're sitting there. Never rushes me; flip side is unless you have one of his first appointments of the day you'll wind up waiting. Believes in not doing more than necessary, and letting the body heal itself, which I like. I've recommended him to several people and they've all been pleased.
My husband and I were referred to the practice. As a new patient, I called for a sick appointment for my husband. The secretary scheduled it for a week later stating that it took that long because we are new and recommended the ER. What doctor recommends the ER? A week later, my husband went for his appointment and his name had been taken out of the book. They are not even computerized. My physical scheduled for the next day was also removed. We are not frantically searching for a new doctor.
I was referred to him by an old coworker and have recommended him since. He is very compassionate and helpful. He shows he cares about you when you are there, and calms your nerves. He always lets you know when you leave that he is there and just a call away. Staff is helpful to get you in when you need to.
Dr. Silverberg has an excellent 'bedside' manner. I went in for a check-up but had other things I wanted to discuss. He made excellent suggestions and referred me to others so that I could explore options and find answers. He is kind and gentle. The best thing that came out of having had an insurance company that required a primary care physician. Up til then, I never had a general practioner; now I do.
