I recently had surgery for cataracts and Dr. Silverman explained the procedure accurately. She gave me a choice of facility, which I chose the Eye Surgery Center of Westchester. This facility was so nice, clean and employees who really seem to care for the patients. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Silverman and Eye Surgery Center of Westchester if you should require surgery.

Dr. Silverman is one of the most patient, and, well informed physicians I have met. She articulates medical procedures in a manner that is understandable and makes a patient feel comfortable. Her office personnel are efficient and friendly.

I met with Dr. Bonnie Silverman recently to explore having cataract surgery. Right from the start she was very personable, informative , patient and caring... I valued this, since my previous visit with a well known Dr. Opthamalogist in the area was unpleasant to say the least...I have the utmost respect for Dr. Silverman and have no doubt I am in good hands...Looking forward to my cataract surgery..

When I could no longer do my crossword puzzles or see the tv screen I sought out Dr. Silverman. At 86 years old, these are my simple pleasures. The office staff was fabulous. I had my cataract surgery performed at the Surgi-center and they took such good care of me. The next day at the follow-up visit Dr. Silverman was amazed that my vision was now 20/25 and already clear. The hardest part of it all is the eye drops, but the time for those passes quickly. Truly amazing!
