Terrible. I saw the NP. But when called Bruce for results, he read off the MRI. Never reviewed notes from NP to understand what was going on with me. Said he would need to see me. Had he read notes from NP he would have had all information He’s arrogant

I had Very very bad experience with Dr. Silverman, I strongly recommend avoid him. i went there because my primary care doctor recommended, He Did not diagnosed problem properly, every visit he will ask for different test then we need to wait for next 2 months to visit him again, there office staff is horrible, To pass one information to doctor you may have to call 3 times, every time they act as they are receiving request first time. There online system is not updated, also there staff act irresponsible.

Dr. B. Silverman has been my neurologist for 28 years. He is a kind, caring and thorough physician that I feel grateful to have been referred to. I have never felt rushed and he has followed my condition closely over the years. I also benefit from his multiple locations.

Dr. Silverman was short and curt, which I can accept. However, he has the most rude office staff I've ever encountered. Additionally, they have no problem charging patient's for MRIs that they scheduled wrong.

Dr. Bruce Silverman is absolutely amazing. I had gone through 4-5 neurologists before I saw him. He was very thorough going through all my paperwork from previous hospital stays. I had been misdiagnosed for months. Previous neurologists had told me to see a psychiatrist for my pain because they couldn't figure out what was going. Dr. Silverman found the holes in my testing and was the first neurologist that actually got to the root of my problem. I ABSOLUTELY recommend him.

Dr. Silverman is very caring and compassionate. I have never felt rushed during an appointment. He takes the extra time to do a complete neuro exam every visit and fully answer any questions. The office atmosphere is somewhat lacking at the two locations I have visited and definitely need an update. Initially I was turned off by the waiting room and exam area, but as soon as I meet Dr. B Silverman I decided it really didn't matter. He is an extremely skilled physician.
