While visiting in Atlanta was able to see the doctor right away. Very smart, personal and kind.

Dr. Silverboard is extremely knowledgeable and caring, he is a great physician.
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
in Atlanta, GA |
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.
in Woodstock, GA |
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.
in Marietta, GA |
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.
