Ratings for Dr. Howard Silverman
I had my agumentation surgery a year ago and the clinic called me yesterday to follow up, which was a nice touch. Everything went better than expected and my nerves were eased almost immediately (i was very nervous coming into this). The staff at the clinic perfomed expeptionally. They were knowledgable and professional. I had a lot of questions, as i was very nervous and they were all answered promptly, usually within minutes! I did A LOT of research before choosing where to have my agumentation done as i was VERY nervous. I eventually settled on Dr. Silverman after several reccommendations and seeing that he was rated #1 on RateMD. The doctor himself was incredibly professional and caring. I did not feel rushed, undervalued or pressured even once during the whole experience. The doctor answered all my questions, understood my goals and worked with me to achieve the outcome that i wanted during the preconsultation. The surgery itself took place at the Almonte Hospital which was small and quiet. I would recommend this doctor to friends and family. The whole experience, start to finish, was better than expected.
staff was excellent, however I was not impressed with Dr. Silverman. i would not recommend him for anyone considering cosmetic surgery
My experience with Dr. Silverman was amazing. The staff were so professional and helpful from the start. When I visited Dr. Silverman the first time, he understood exactly what I wanted and answered all my questions. He gave me suggestions on size, material and shape (breast augmentation) and was very on point and honest about the results I would get. Post surgery, the results are 100% what I asked for and what I imagined I would get. Before and after surgery, I was never left alone and felt like I was a queen. Dr. Silverman makes sure that his patients are as comfortable and relaxed as possible at every visit. He does NOT treat you like you're less important when you are done paying. He is honest about what he can do for you. He is not the type of Doctor that will tell you what you want to hear just to get you to sign. I'm extremely satisfied and I have already started to recommend him. He's definitely worth a visit.
I had my drainless tummy tuck with liposuction done by Dr. Silverman in January 2016 and my results say it all. My stomach is flat, my incision is very low and I have a beautiful belly button. I look great and I feel even better. The surgery went smoothly and I was able to start walking the same evening. Since it is a drainless procedure, I was able to start taking showers two days after the surgery. However, the recovery took a long time in my case (about a month before I was able to return to work). A couple of times I needed to see Dr. Silverman due to some unforeseen problems with stitches and each time his staff arranged the appointment for me almost immediately. It didn't matter how busy was his schedule, Dr, Silverman always had time for me. I have to say that Dr. Silverman bedside manners are impeccable. I felt comfortable with him from day one and he has never made me feel rushed. His staff was wonderful, very knowledgeable, always very helpful and attentive. I would recommend Dr. Silverman to anyone.
I had a couple of procedures performed by Dr. Silverman. I think he is good for sure, but didn't quite divulge the extent of possible scarring. I was told that there would be scarring and that everyone heals differently. I didn't realize that a scar revision was possible until researching it on the internet. He performed the scar revision but I felt with great reluctance; should note I had to pay for it as well. I would like more scar revision but will go elsewhere. I also felt totally disregarded by him and his staff on my last visit. Got the impression that unless receiving money, that can't be bothered. I think breasts are his forte. If thinking of major surgery, am not sure I would recommend him. Nor do I think he is up on the latest procedures on the market.
Nearly 3 years ago, I gave birth to my second daughter who came a surprisingly 12 months after my first baby. Despite my gratefulness of being very able to have babies, this was (to say the least) a challenging time – mentally and emotionally. Luckily once we all got into the swing of things, it became enjoyable and less of a blur! But another challenge I experienced, that unfortunately didn't improve over time, was the physical change my body experienced after two back-to-back pregnancies. Prior to pregnancy, I was confident, comfortable, and completely secure with my appearance. Plastic surgery was never a consideration and it was actually something I often didn't understand and believed to be a shallow decision for most. Why can’t people just accept the way they are naturally? Why are they so vein? Easy to say when you don’t need it. Then things shifted on me and I was no longer the confident and self-assured woman I always had been. Motherhood has brought me indescribable happiness, but it also brought me significant physical changes that then lead to major emotional downs. After the birth of my second daughter, and once my breasts were no longer engorged, I noticed how much volume I lost. I no longer had shape. I no longer had fullness. For the next two years, I hated the site of myself naked. This was a constant issue for me and my husband. I wouldn't go a day without thinking about how unhappy I was with my natural appearance. As for him, not only did I not want him to see me, I didn't want him to touch me despite his continuous assurance that he had never been so attracted to me. But this wasn't about him (as much as I appreciated his support). This was solely about me. I wanted a positive change with my breasts so I began researching breast augmentation. After nearly 2 years of looking into the procedure, I decided that this was a surgery that I absolutely wanted to undergo. I was excited. Nervous. Shy. Hopeful. I didn’t know what to expect. But I can tell you that the moment I met Dr. Silverman and his staff, I instantly knew I was with the very best. Dr. Silverman took the time, in every single appointment, to ensure everything was progressing properly and that I was completely satisfied. He sincerely understood my concerns, did a thorough examination, provided me with all the information I needed, and didn’t hesitate to provide me with his contact information should anything arise. Dr. Silverman is by far the most approachable, professional, and capable doctor I have had the opportunity to be a patient of. Not to mention, his staff are outstanding. They are so genuine and absolute experts in their field. Patient, approachable, knowledgeable, and understanding. It has been such a pleasure dealing with them all. Everyone has made this such a memorable and positive experience. Dr. Silverman really gave me a part of my life back. I am very thankful that he took such great care of me and did such wonderful work. Not only was it important for me to achieve positive results, it was equally important to me to have a doctor who made me feel as comfortable as he did. I’m so pleased with the surgery. I’m so happy for having found Dr. Silverman and following through. This has been life changing, and he is responsible for such positives changes in my life.
From the initial consultation to the final follow-up, my experience with Dr. SIlverman and my breast augmentation surgery was very positive. Nothing seemed rushed; he took the time to fully explain all aspects of the process. His office staff could not have been more polite and professional. The Arnprior hospital experience was equally positive. Staff were kind and understanding and went out-of-their-way to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. Dr. Silverman took the time to see me both before and after the surgery and even spent some time with my family in the waiting room. Congratulations to Dr. Silverman and his team - they are truly in a class of their own. In addition, I also had a lip"filler" procedure with Dr. Silverman. The outcome was equally positive. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Silverman and his team to anyone. Kudos to Dr. Silverman and his team!
I had the BEST experience ever for Breast Augmentation surgery. From the initial consultation, surgery and follow-up care. During my consultation he spent great amount of time with me taking measurements and explaining the different implant options. Trying them on was fun and I knew instantly which one I wanted! We both agreed on a selection. He's so kind and down to earth, it made the whole nerve-wrecking process so much easier! I was so excited to schedule surgery, I had it done weeks later. The staff at the Almonte Hospital were amazing!!! They take great care of their patients and were so nice. I'm thrilled with my results and have a new found confidence. I was never happy with the shape of my breasts... this has been life changing! Thank you Dr. Silverman and you're amazing team at the office! :)
I've had several procedures done by Dr. Silverman and couldn't be more pleased with my results. After two children and 50 lbs. of weight loss, I had a lot ugly loose skin so I had a arm, thigh lift and breast augmentation done. When I went to Dr. Silverman, I had some concerns. Several years ago I had an abdominoplasty done by another surgeon in Toronto and even though the overall result improved the appearance of my tummy, the incision separated at each end creating a rather large, unattractive scar. My fears were put to rest after my first procedure with Dr. Silverman. I am so impressed by his skill in creating beautiful cosmetic results with minimal scarring. With my arm lift for instance, he was able to make a smaller crescent-shaped incision under my arms making the lift almost invisible. My breast augmentation is the best. Beyond my expectations. The staff were always very kind and helpful in answering any questions I had. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Silverman to anyone.
