    Dr. Silverstein was the first doctor who we met for my wife's issue. She got cancer on her right breast and after seeking for a good doctor, we were referred to him. He told us that my wife needs to do a nipple removal mastectomy, which is the easiest way and fastest way of doing a surgery, especially for breast cancer if the size is big, in order to get rid of cancer. we met with two other doctors and they said, they will do the surgery in a way that they will keep the nipple and they did.

    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.
