I have been so impressed by the way Dr. Silverthorn interacts with me during my office visits. She is thorough in her examination and thoughtful in her decision-making, which gives me confidence to trust her with my somewhat complex medical situation. She never appears rushed and allows ample time for questions before moving on to her next patient. I always leave the office knowing I have been heard by this caring physician.
