Dr. Joel Silverberg is simply the BEST! How many doctors today call their patients with results of lab work on the same day, usually in the late afternoon or at night!? My husband and I sing his praises to everyone! He is extremely competent, listens carefully to his patients, and administers wise, conservative advice. We have been his patients since he first came to the Baton Rouge Clinic many years ago and not once have we been disappointed! We are indeed the fortunate recipients of his dedicated service! May the city be blessed with many more wonderful, caring doctors like Dr. Silverberg!
