Do NOT ever go to Dr. Silbert. My son had to see him in the hospital and he was so rude and unprofessional!! He talked bad about the hospital and demanded to see him in his office cause the hospital equipment wasn't good enough. He saw my son in his office after he made them wait for an hour. After all that he still misdiagnosed my son!!!! He won't talk to us or acknowledge anything!! We are finally seeing results from a much better pediatric eye specialist who had diagnosed him correctly.

Dr. Silbert has treated our daughter for twelve years. He is caring, professional, and knowledgeable. We have always been confident with his prescribed treatment plans which were explained thoroughly and thoughtfully. Dr. Silbert keeps staff well trained in new procedures and technology. Staff members are pleasant and really have their act together.

I would not under any circumstances recommend Dr. Silbert to family and friends. He kept my son and I waiting for close to two hours for our scheduled appointment (which I would totally understand for a doctor who took his time with his patients-Dr. Silbert does not). He has poor communication skills, a less than appealing (downright rude!) bedside manner, and gets quite annoyed when questions are asked for clarification. We have left his practice and are much happier with our new eye doctor.

I would recommend Dr. Silbert to anyone as he is an extremely skilled physician, has a wonderful, caring bedside manner, and has a staff that is excellent! After my eyelid surgery in January 2016 with Dr. Silbert, I was so surprisingly relieved that I had no pain even on the first day! I just cannot say enough good things about Dr. Silbert and his staff - thank you!!!
