I love the staff and of course Dr. Silvers, they are all so friendly and I especially love Monique that set up my appointment for my endoscopy, she is such a cheerful person. My only problem was making an appointment. I called on 4 separate occasions trying to make an appointment and was sent directly to a voice system each time and I was not called back until the end of the day each time while I was driving home from work and was expected to give my insurance information.

You could not find a more compassionate and caring doctor than Dr. Silvers. You never feel like he's in a rush to go on to the next patient. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and and addresses your health in a professional manner. I've been going to him for over 18 years now.

This is my third scope with Dr Silvers and I would happily recommend him to everyone who needs a gastro doctor. His gentle nature puts you right at ease, he listens carefully to all your questions and answers them in a way that's easy to understand. His office staff are all very nice and professional, and are very helpful with insurance questions. The staff at the facility Dr Silvers uses are just the sweetest, loveliest ladies, very calming and super efficient at their jobs. Highly recommended!
