Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Silvers removed a lipoma from my upper back and did a beautiful job; he's very thorough and takes his time explaining the treatment plan. I'd recommend him to anyone who needs general surgery.

my experience with Dr. Silvers was incredibly positive. He listened to me and discovered the misdiagnosis of my supposed illness. He was caring when I needed outpatient surgery making smallest of stitches and making sure I was comfortable and all my questions were answered. So different from the many doctors who just see patients as a treadmill to bill insurance.

Had an inguinal hernia repair just over three weeks ago and everything went well. Dr. Silvers did a great job of explaining everything and I was surprised at how clean the incision looked after. The nursing staff and everyone in the surgery area was great as well at community medical/rwj Barnabas.
