I have taken my 97 y/o father to Dr. Silver for years. He has always treated both of us with kindness, patience, and compassion. He has been level-headed in his advice and has given ear to our questions or thoughts.

Been meaning to write this review for a while. About 3.5 years ago, went in to NWPC clinic and saw Dr. Silver for first time regarding some intestinal issues I'd been having but hadn't gotten any answers for. Within 5 minutes of meeting me, he was trying to prescribe me anti-depressants, rather forcefully, despite me insisting I felt fine mentally. For me, Dr. Silver represents everything wrong with modern doctors. I would not go back to that clinic.
