This Doctor was on call and would not refill a prescription for me on a weekend while I was out of town. I realize it's not their policy. But, I didn't need birth-control, I needed an anti-viral which is best taken ASAP. Why she didn't recognize this or care, makes me wonder what kind of Doctor she is. Not a real one, in my book. By Monday, I will be in pain, uncomfortable and I will be blaming her, for her lack of compassion and unbending policy adherence.
She handled my miscarriage and then my next pregnancy. What was likely very routine to her was terrifying to me but she always made me feel taken care of, showing compassion, concern and made sure that I left her office feeling informed and that we had a course of action if any other problems arose. She always let me have a say in my care, which I find rare. I am actually sad that I won't be having any more children - because she would certainly be my doctor through any more pregnancies.

Dr silk is the best for me she is very honest to her patients ,kind and also funny.if I ever get pregnant again which is I don't think I will always go to her .???? B.E
She is a professional, informative and compassionate. She completed my D&C in 2014 and then delivered my Son in 2016. The journey was tough but she walked me through every process. She explains everything and takes extra time to answer any questions you may have. She never makes you feel rushed. She is the only Dr I trust in that office and the only reason I stay a patient there.
I?ve recently had a total hysterectomy performed by Dr. Silk and as I expected, she illustrated the utmost professionalism. Prior to the surgery, I was confident in her knowledge and her expertise and I considered her a mindful, considerate individual. Still, it was her thoughtfulness that exceeded my expectations with visits to check in on me every morning and evening while at the hospital. If you are searching for a capable, caring professional, I highly recommend Dr. Laura Silk.
