    He is an awesome doctor. He listens to you and answers all your questions. He is very kind and has a great bedside manner.
    in Hammond, Louisiana |
    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.
