This whole practice was a breath of fresh air for me. I started in the ER at Lakeview which was great but the follow-up stuff was a major mess. I scheduled with Dr Silverstein believing he was on my insurance plan since I picked him off the insurance web site. Dr Silverstein's receptionist is the one who finally figured out my ins didn't include him but he saw me He went through my ER record with me and answered all my questions, he went through all the follow-up with me and referred me to a doctor that is on my plan. I do wish Dr Silvertein was on my plan. His whole office staff was freiendly and helpful and patient with my frustrations with the whole follow-up mess.

I am very happy to have become a patient of Dr. Silverstein. He took his time to explain what I needed to know. Just as importantly, he listened to what I had to say. There was no hint of "rush". I got the very distinct impression that he wants to help, wants to treat the problems as best he can. I look forward to my next visit with him.

Dr. Silverstein I consider to be a well qualified Physician. His bed side manner is second to none. He has a way of making you feel that you are his only patient. He takes his time with you doing your examination. He explains to you as he go and then make sure that you fully understand. He gives you time to ask a questions. He is very good at what he does. My greatest sorrow is he is no longer at North Oaks Hospital.
