Dr. Silverstein is not only brilliant at what he does but he is a kind and caring man. I had my lumpectomy in 2008 and while his location is not close to my home, I wouldn't think of going to anyone else but him. If you want the BEST, BEST surgeon and someone who will lift your spirits at a very difficult time in your life......do yourself this favor......go see Dr. Silverstein.
