When I went to Dr Silver I had no clue what to expect. All through the workman's comp and insurance waiting to be paid not once was he short tempered or in a hurry. Always professional and caring. One of the nicest, caring doctors out there. Yes, go! Recommend him.

I HAVE BEEN A PATIENT OF DR SILVER FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE HAD LUMBAR AND CERVICAL SURGERY PREFORMED BY HIM WITH EXCELLENT RESULT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM. HE IS KIND, COMPASSIONATE AND HIGHLY SKILLED. I LIVE 5 HOURS AWAY FROM THIS SURGEON AND IT IS WELL WORTH THE TIME AND TRIP TO SEE HIM.

Wow! I don't know what I can possibly say to express how amazing Dr Silver as. He listens, really listens. He pays attention, asks questions, and answers all of yours whether they're small or the major ones. He doesn't pull any punches, but he also doesn't say anything deliberately to scare you like some doctors can. Go. He's the right one.

I had C5C6 discectomy and fusion in November 2015. Surgery was a success. Dr. Silvers had great bedside manners and always spent enough time with me explaining in detail my condition and procedure. I would recommend him to anyone! ??

Waiting was not problem because spent as much time as needed when saw physician. Did not feel rushed. He preformed 3 surgeries One cranial, 2 spinal over 6 years. The outcomes were excellent and surpassed expectations. Traveled over 700 miles for both spinal operations because of success with first experience..
