Dr. Silverstein is excellent--knowledgeable, detailed, and a great sense of humor!
in Bergenfield, NJ |
He is awesome! Fabulous Dr. He has this sense of humor and bedside manner that puts you at ease. I believe that's why I took my diagnosing of MS extremely well because of his personality and positivity. I have and will always put my trust and health in his hands. He takes his time and answers any and all questions. He is detailed. I would refer anyone to him :) it's been a blessing. The staff is just as wonderful! Patient and always cheerful. They make you feel at home :)
in Matawan, NJ |
I visited Dr. Silverstein with my mother in law who was frustrated after a number of recent hospital stays and no answers. Dr. SIlverstein was very patient in explaining what had taken place up to that point based on her records, and the course of action he was putting in place to proceed. He made us feel like we were the only people on his schedule. He was prompt (a rarity), informative, and seemed genuinely interested in helping. He is also a NY Mets fan but I won't hold that against him!
in North Arlington, NJ |
I am grateful to have been referred to Dr. Silverstein as he is a genuine and caring individual. This is the only doctor appointment that I actually look forward to going to. I recommend him highly!
New Milford, NJ |
I would not recommend this practice to anyone. I called to change an appointment, was put on hold and after 5 minutes, disconnected. This happened three times. When I called back and choose another option, the phone rang and rang and rang and no one picked up. The person who recommended this practice and Dr. Silverstein in particular said it was really hard to reach the office and get to talk to someone. To me, this is unacceptable and I'd not use such a physician who cannot operate efficiently
in Elmwood Park,NJ |
We would highly recommend Dr. Silverstein. Our visit with him was incredibly thorough and informative! He has a great bedside manner and is extremely funny. He puts you at ease and lets you have confidence that your medical problems have solutions. We left knowing that help is on the way. The staff can at times be a little off putting but that is probably because of their heavy workload. Put your trust in Dr. Silverstein you will not be sorry!
