If you are looking for a physician who listens, gives a thorough examination, doesn't rush and genuinely cares, this is the doctor for you! Dr Silverthorn is accessible via a wonderful, caring and thoughtful staff who respond promptly to calls. Why would anyone go anywhere else? Is she difficult to get an appointment with, yes, obviously, physicians like her are unfortunately hard to find. The triage nurses are awesome!

Dr. Silverthorn has seen my husband and I for years. She is top notch in her diagnostic ability and she has a lot of compassion. She is extremely knowledgeable about drugs and their side effects. I highly recommend her.

I have been seeing Dr Silverthorn for over 3 years; after a lot of research I found she was a 'Top Doctor' in her field, and she has proven that time after time. I saw several other docs who dismissed my complaints, within 5 min of our first visit she had a prelim diagnosis for me of a very serious lung disease - because she cares and listens to her patients symptoms; she explained everything, and takes the time to answer all questions and runs needed tests and I I never feel rushed.

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.
