I'm very proud to say I have the most caring Dr. to treat my diabetes, Thyroid, and CKD plus other illness's I have. When I arrive I'm brought to the back on time, Dr. Silverberg checks me very thorough lab work urinalysis from my kidney failure, when I leave his office I know I have been seen checked over and promptly taken care of from each staff member they are top-notch they know what they're doing and make you feel like you're part of their family not just a patient. For me that's how I like my doctor visit to be. Thanks to Dr. Silverberg he found my kidney problem early, has been treating my CKD along with Dr. Smith. We need more attentive Dr's like Dr. Silverberg. I know when I leave his office if I need him all I have to do is call, and he's there to help with my illness. I'm very satisfied with Dr. Silverberg. Thanks B.R.C. for such wonderful Dr's on staff. Pamelia Webre

This was my first time meeting Dr. Silverberg. He was very professional, personal, informative, patient, and very thorough. He was in “no rush”, and was interested in everything I had to say. He listened carefully, gave me his medical advice, and asked if I understood or had any questions. I was very blessed to have met him. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an endocrinologist.

Dr. Silverburg is very thorough. Answers questions. Wait time is unusually 10-15 minutes. After a visit he will personally call you to tell you the results of any test that were done that day. Trust him completely.

No wonder it takes awhile to get in to see him. Dr. Silverberg is wonderful. He is calm, knowledgeable, dedicated (one time he called me on a Saturday with my lab results!) and kind. I recommend him to anyone who needs an endocrinologist.

This man saved my life. Literally. I had a very small nodule in my thyroid and he insisted on an ultrasound followed by a fine needle biopsy. Turned out to be medullary thyroid cancer, which is incurable, but he and his NP Bethany, found it so and dealt with it SO QUICKLY that it has been undetectable since 2015.
