Baltimore, MD |
Poor bedside manner.
peckville |
What a great doctor. He had the confidence to review my images and definitively localize the reason for my leg pain. All the other doctors did not have the knowledge to evaluate the subtle findings obviously present on my studies and only he had the compassion to believe my complaints and relate them to the MRI findings. His training is excellent and I was very lucky to have him as my surgeon. I have fully recovered and thanks to him I have my life back. Highly Recommend to any patient.
Washington, DC |
He did an L5/S1 spinal fusion. I interviewed 4 other docs and he was the best. I could not have been happier with the end result. The recovery process was harder than I expected, but the results were immediate. It has now been one year and I am better than ever. He was always professional; and explained things well.

Dr. Silveri performed spinal surgery, removing a cyst and doing fusion, a little over a year ago on me. I went from being in great pain daily, often unpredictable as to what would bring it on to being pain free. Dr. Silveri was kind, he listened, and was thorough! My life returned to normal and I have been able to travel and garden again. I would highly recommend Dr. Silveri!
in Woodbridge, VA |
I returned to Dr. Silveri because he successfully treated a hip fracture a few years prior to my back issue. My cancer is in remission, I appreciate that his first feedback is there is no additional cancer. My hip fracture was treated through PT.. My broken back, ruptured, & herniated discs required surgery. Dr. Silveri had Dr. Gorsen assist for the nerves. He's open to viewing the X-rays w/him and answers all questions, but I go prepared. Trisha, the ofc mgr was also GREAT. I am walking again!

Dr. Silveri is a life saver! I had a huge disc herniation that required a lumbar fusion. He was very thorough and told me everything that I can expect. I honestly don't think my outcome would have been as great as it is if it wasn't for him and his office staff. He is straightforward which I like and takes the time to listen to your questions and concerns. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and really helped set my mind at ease.

I suffered with back pain due to stenosis for years. I was referred to Dr. Silveri, which was the best step I could have taken for the sake of my overall health. Dr. Silveri and his staff are always incredible to work with. My surgery was a complete success and I can honestly say that a pain that was always so prevalent in my life is now completely gone. I am grateful for Dr. Silveri and his team for their incredibly professional and effective treatment. I highly recommend him and his team!
in Annandale, VA |
I have read the other reviews and believe Dr. Silveri so far is a terrific surgeon. I also think his bedside manner is honest and blunt which I appreciate. Who wants to be lied to by their doctor. I would recommend Dr. Silveri to anyone with a herniated disc problem. I feel confident in his hands. Thank you.
in Burke, VA |
Dr. Silveri was the rudest Doctor I have ever seen and heard of. His bedside manner was so horrible, I am surprised that he has been able to maintain a practice. He had the nerve to tell me that my herniated disc pain in my lower back wasn't all that bad and that my problem was that I was fat and out of shape and that I shouldn't be in that much pain. I couldn't stand up or walk on my own and the pain was so severe that I was shaking and screaming during x-rays. Dr. Silveri is a jerk.
New York, NY |
Fine as a surgeon, poor bedside manner. Did my first fusion but I will have someone else do my next. Returned to him a year later, he rolled his eyes - literally - when I told him my symptoms. Then he saw the X-ray and sent me for an MRI. When I returned for to discuss those results, I left after waiting for an hour and a half. Office staff was rude when I asked for my records to be transferred elsewhere. Again, skilled surgeon, but doesnt make up for the way he treats patients.
in VA |
Excellent surgeon, bedside manner, etc. Surgery was very successful. Office waits are annoyingly long but worth the wait.
in Virginia |
If someone was a patient for years but hasn't seen Dr.Silveri in a few years...shouldn't mean they don't remember you. Also know your office help shows and speaks a lot about your practice.Perhaps your office assistant needs a little reminder about her tone of voice and not bark or show criticism when speaking to your patients.Calling to get help shouldn't mean getting nasty attitudes from the office staff. I would not recommend this office
