Patient Comments (5)

I practically have to beg the receptionist in Tampa to stay on the phone long enough to answer a question. I hope she has been replaced. I have had trouble getting prescription refills. It's gotten to the point that I am looking for a new rheumatologist before I pull all my hair out, It's a shame...more

I think this doctor is too brief and should consider retirement-burned out ???

This doctor's focus is on "turnover"...getting patients in and out of the office as quickly as possible. Each visit was 10 minutes or less and I was shocked as to how abruptly he would terminate the visit and walk out, my questions still unanswered. He spends more time reading and recording notes...more

I called to schedule an appointment with Dr Silverfield and his office staff was very rude and very non-caring. (new patient)
