I am a 30+ yr patient of Dr. Silvers, that really speaks for itself. He listens to your problems or concerns and he explains all the do's and don't s to you. You never feel rushed. He is truly a great listener and communicator. From the front office to the scheduling dept., the entire staff is very knowledgeable, friendly, and polite. I recommend Dr. Silvers very highly!

I have been treating with Dr. Silvers for several years. I appreciate the time he takes to explain things to me, instead of rushing through an appointment. His staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I have even recommended others to his office.
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Silvers very well may have changed my life. He made me feel heard and validated when other doctors made me feel appeased. Dr. Silvers ordered tests I've dreamed of having done--no other doctor has been as thorough as I wanted. He also prescribed a drug that improved my condition overnight. I woke up and texted my friends and family about the difference and that I actually felt happy. Overall, my experience with Dr. Silvers was first rate. I am confident that I am in good hands.

Dr. Silvers is very thorough and they share all the information you need so that you can understand your health issues. He is terrific and I appreciate the feedback that he provides that most doctors don't.

Dr. Silvers is the consumate physical in that he conveys his sincere interest in your health and well being, is willing to take all the time necessary to explain his medical procedures and treatments, and his smile is constant and sense of humor ever present and very much appreciated. He is everything a doctor should be and much more. And his staff is very upbeat, friendly, engaging, polite, helpful, and extremely efficient. I couldn't hope for a more positive setting for health care.
