Patient Comments (3)

He listens. He is up front. I have been going to Dr. Silverstein for almost one year and he is the only good that has come from the terrible insurance plan I have. I trust him and feel completely comfortable asking any questions regarding my health. I do not hesitate to recommend him to anyone...more
