I would very much recommend Dr. Silvester to my family and friends. I have already! He was thorough, knowledgeable, witty and he solved my problems. The staff also was a pleasure to work with. 3 months after surgery I am once again good to go. Thank you Dr. S and staff.

After spending months in wound care at a local hospital without much success, I decided to give Dr Sylvester a call. He brought me in right away. No long wait...and he had a plan to fix my issue promptly. What they had spent months working on to no vail, Dr. Sylvester cured in just a few weeks. I am back on my feet. Great bedside manner with no bull. He talks to you in lay terms that you can understand. Great Dr and a GREAT staff...Who knew...The Doctor with ldies that actually like people working for him.

I began having surgery on my feet at a very young age, which led to me feeling very uncomfortable with my feet, and Podoatrists in general, I’ve had ingrown toenails removed 6 different times, and each one was very traumatic. My experience at Next step Foot & Ankle clinic was so much more pleasant. The staff was extremely patient, and kind. The visit was very quick and simple, and most of all there was NO PAIN. I didn’t even know that was possible! Thank you to you and your staff!!

After having a bad experience many years ago I was afraid to see another Podiatrist. Dr. Silvester was awesome. He knew I was a little afraid and each time he saw me or did a procedure he set me at ease. His staff from the front desk to the operating room were wonderful, professional and extremely courteous. Thank you Dr. Silvester and staff. AGH

By far one of the best doctors I have ever met. His bedside manner is superb! We were in and out within the hour, that’s including wait time and double ingrown toenail surgery. The entire staff is very pleasant and the office is very clean and comfortable. I found my forever Podiatrist. I would highly recommend Dr. Silvester

The first words out a doctors mouth shouldn't be, "hurry up, I 140 other patients to see" This Doctor should be avoided at all cost, treats you like a piece of time aka meat. No respect towards his patients. I have never got in a yelling match with the doctor in my entire life and to have a doctor yell at you because you are afraid of needles is completely unprofessional. Then grab a piece a paper and say to you I knows what's wrong with you, that paper said "pain syndrome". Nurses are nice

Long story short- Dr. Silvester is my life saver!!! After being told by a prior doctor that my foot was unrepairable, I found Dr. Silvester @ Next Step foot and ankle Clinic. I suffered 35 years with foot pain but Dr. Silverter found the source of my foot pain and fixed it. It's been 7 weeks since my surgery and I now have movement on my foot and no more pain. THANK YOU Dr. SILVESTER! I would also like to THANK his wonderful, caring and friendly staff for all their help!

After seeing 2 podiatrists in Austin, I determined that I needed a doctor with more advanced skills, experience, and knowledge to take my case to the next level. After an exhaustive internet search, I found Dr. Silvester! After my first visit, I immediately knew I was in the right hands. Since Dr. Silvester has been treating me, I have made signifcant progess and am on the path to being able to walk with normal foot function again. I drive 2.5 hours round trip to see him because of his skill.
