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 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.

Dr. Silvers' Care Philosophy

I and my staff strive to provide caring, professional and personal service to all patients. I welcome family conferences and provide the support that they need. My years of extensive clinical research and practice have made me an expert in the field of gastroenterology and my goal is to provide the most up to date care in a friendly and compassionate manner. My philosophy is to treat each patient the same way that I would want to be treated.

Dr. Silvers says...

I have been treating patients with inflammatory bowel disease, namely Crohn's disease and Ulcerative colitis for over 30 years. I continue to do research in this area and serve as a principle investigator on several clinical trials to help develop newer and better treatments for these conditions. My goal is to treat the entire patient and not just the disease state on in a personal and compassionate manner. 

Dr. Silvers says...

I started performing endoscopy and colonoscopy in the early days of optical examinations where the doctor looked into the scope and had a birds eye view of the area being examined. Over the years, technology has progressed so that we are now able to view the gastrointestinal tract using enhanced electronics and high definition monitoring  to provide an incredibly higher quality and more optimal examination. Having performed over 50,000 endoscopic and colonoscopic examinations and removed thousands of polyps, I have developed superior techniques and skill in the field of gastroenterology.
