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.

Dr. Silverstein and his staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. I met him because of having to have open heart surgery and chose to use him as my cardiologist following surgery.

I have been seeing Dr Silverstein for a few years and he has always been very thorough and listens to what I tell him about the way I have been feeling. Then he recommends a treatment.

My husband and I both go to Dr Silverstein. In an emergency, which my husband has had several times we can always get in to see him. He is patient, thorough and knowledgeable. He has a fantastic memory where his patients are concerned.

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.
