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.

Conditions 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.

Procedures Performed

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.
