I have been a patient for two separate issues. All conditions were thoroughly explained, all questions answered, and never felt rushed. Always seen promptly. The staff is efficient. I recommend Dr Upadhyay.

He was great. I believe, however, that Dr. Silverstein is no longer in practice, at least not at the 1 Scripps Drive address. The phone number is disconnected as of 3/20/2020, maybe earlier. Too bad. I really liked him, was thorough, professional, and caring.

David Hill Mar 23 2020

Review for Dr. Silverstein

Is dismissive arrogant and does not really care what the patient thinks it's all about him at present I am trying to find a doctor to undo what he did to me if you have to have surgery by this guy good luck

Wow you can trust this mean spirited elder abuser? You are on your own. She understands no communication, no medicine, no time management, and no pain. She thinks patients are her children of 2-3 age who have to first be set straight and then be forced medicine.

I ruptured two discs in my neck. Dr. Kim replaced both discs with artificial discs, leaving only a small scar on the front of my neck. Only one night in the hospital, back to work after a week. I have regained 100% mobility and have 0% pain. Just a fantastic job!

Clark Feb 29 2020

Review for Dr. Kim

Terrible, patronizing, condescending. She has non-existent bedside manners and no empathy or compassion. I have a terminal illness and she was very blunt and essentially “well it is what it is”. It makes me so sad she takes care of actual patients.
