I had my first tele-medicine with Dr. Gerald Silverboard. Surprisingly it was very helpful. He asked me may questions and was very compassionate. I was very appreciative during this visit at such a difficult time. My problems were resolved.

I visited Dr. Silverboard after having three strokes that had previously been misdiagnosed as migraines. Dr. Silverboard immediately recognized my symptoms as a stroke. Dr. Silverboard went above and beyond the call of duty by fitting me in the same day, quickly scheduling an MRI/MRA (which he had to encourage my insurance company to approve on the same day), getting me checked in to the ER, and then pushing for all the tests necessary to prove that I had a PFO, which needed to be closed. I honestly don't know what I would have done without Dr. Silverboard's help during this time; I truly feel like he has been my biggest advocate. -Kelli Hardin

Dr. Silverboard healed my neurologic condition! I was severely affected by my peripheral neuropathy that had worsened over the last decade. Dr. Silverboard considered a plethora of possibilities and was thorough enough to gather test results from four MRI studies and from nerve transmission tests. After recommending that I correct my B-12 deficiency, reduce my sugar intake to improve my pre-diabetic tendencies, and lower my statin drug dosage, I was a new man! Hire this man if you ever have the need for a neurologist. I'm so grateful for him.

Dr. Silverboard is treating my son who had a hemorrhagic stroke 15 months ago and we have been very, very pleased with this doctor. He is patient, personable and thorough with all examinations in addition to being very experienced in Neurology.

I saw him when I was at Children's Healthcare and if I could give him no stars I would.... his bedside manner was terrible! We refused to see him at a later visit!

DR Silverboard has helped my family for years; First with my child, diagnosed with an ASTROCYTOMA at the age of two. Dr Silverboard was kind, thoughtful and caring during the years following surgery. He kept up with the drugs my son was on to control seizures, was available to "talk" whenever I needed reassuring due to the complicated diagnosis.Dr Silverboard is also on board with my husband, diagnosis ALZHEIMERS. DR Silverboard is an intricate part of our medical team. HIGHLY RECCOMEND

Dr. Silverboard was very professional, very compassionate. Helped me and my family through a rough patch. Moreso, he was always available to speak with after business hours.

If I could give a zero I would. Worst experience I have ever had and his nurse is the most unprofessional and rude person I have spoken with. You would think that the staff would be more compassionate being this is a pediatric neurology office, but they were the farthest thing from it. I guess I should have been weary when we got an apt with him much sooner than the other neurologist with longer wait lists.

Dr. Silverboard is not a part of the practice that we use on a daily basis, but happened to be the doctor on call over the weekend. My child suffered an abnormal seizure for him and his lips were blue, eyes rolled back in his head, and he wasn't breathing. When he finally came out of it, I called to speak with the on call doctor about any further precautions since this was not typical. When Dr. Silverboard called he was so rude from the start. Treated me like I was very inferior and he knew all.

My 19 year old daughter started having severe headaches when she was sitting or standing. Her doctor was stumped and sent her to Dr Silverboard. He diagnosed her within 10 mins of her visit. His office staff moved mountains to get her MRIs done immediately. The staff is friendly, yet professional. The entire staff (including Dr. Silverboard) makes themselves available. There is NO rushing through your appointment. Dr Silverboard listened and answered all my questions. The staff follows up.
