What People Say About Dr. Joel Silverman, MD
Reply
Dr Silverman has a kind heart and genuinely cares about his patients. He's easy to talk to, and actually listens to your health concerns (unlike a lot of drs). He'll squeeze you in to the schedule when he's booked solid, if you really need to see him, or phone in emergency meds for you in a moment's notice. His staff is patient and understanding if you misplace the insurance info or mistakingly leave your referral at home. Silverman and his staff are the best honestly.

He was very professional, compassionate, and listened to everything I told him. He addressed every issue I raised. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a pulmonologist. I left his office reassured that the next time I had a problem, he would be able to help me. Wonderful, caring doctor.
