I never did get to thank Dr. Silver for the excellent advice and explanation of my lung operation prior to May 1, 2013!! I called him for more information when he discovered the spot on my right lower lung. After following the progression for a number of months, he informed my primary physician, Dr. Donald S. Childs, that surgery was recommended because of the increased size of the nodule. His recommendation saved my life at 87-years old! Thank you so much Dr. Silver. Ceoria Coates

Dr. Silver is the best doctor I have ever seen in my life. I cannot say enough good things about him. His expertise is extraordinary. After seeing other doctors for months trying to get answers, Dr. Silver was such a blessing to me. He was thorough and really took his time to address every one of my questions and concerns. I left his office with the answers I had been seeking for months with other doctors. Thank you Dr. Silver for being truly remarkable!
