Dr. Silber is amazing. He has been seeing my son for 10 years. He listens, asks AND answers questions and makes sure we understand everything. He, personally, returns phone calls when my son has been sick. He truly cares, best bedside manner. He doesn't rush through visits takes the time to thoroughly explain everything. Not sure what we are going to do when my son has to see an adult GI doc...

Went to him because of emergency GI problems and my regular GI doctor couldn't see me. Explained my long list of GI problems and how his office failed me the first time. He did not believe me or that he or his doctors could be wrong, which they were. He did not bother to read the short letter containing all my GI problems. I was in a wheel chair about to faint and he made me stand up. I broke down crying and he was not empathetic. Said he was going to prescribe a medicine and didn't.

Dr. Silber is unwilling to listen to you and what you need. He will not deal with any problems. He will simply prescribe medication to stop pain instead of figuring out why thee is pain. Simply put, its hundreds of dollars for a five minute visit with a man who's only in practice for the money.

Dr. Silber saw my son for more than a year and didn't do anything to help him. After speaking with friends who have also seen him, we all had the same experience. First, you will be given medicine for acid reflux (regardless if your child has it). Then, he will schdule an upper GI swallow study. But, he will cancel it at your pre-procedure visit claiming it's not longer necessary for various reasons. Lastly, you will follow up and he won't do anything else so you just stop going. He's terrible!!
