Dr. Silver is a wonderful movement specialist. When I was misdiagnosed, I went to Emory and Dr. Silver was very helpful, compassionate and knew right away what was wrong. I would highly recommend him to any person with Dystonia or other movement disorders.

He does not listening to his patients. He uses his own personal feelings to judge instead of treat a patient. He misdiagnosed me which caused me a lot of pain and money. Please think twice before seeing this doctor.

I saw Dr. Silver for a year for migraines, and he repeatedly ignored my requests to do diagnostic testing to find out why I was having a sharp increase in frequency and severity. Instead, he just tried to medicate me, and I didn't have any relief from his treatment-- only horrible side effects like memory loss and brain fogginess that made my job as a NICU nurse very difficult. When I tried to switch providers, Emory Clinic said their policy is not to allow it so I'm forced to find a new clinic.
