Dr. Silvino replaced both of my knees. I had no problems and the pain management was absolutely perfect. Following his schedule of meds and therapy absolutely made a difference. Four years on and I am so happy that I had the procedures done.

Dr. Silvino was very patient and seemed very knowledgable about the persistent shin splints that my daughter was experiencing. We were happy with the appointment other than the unfortunate 2+ hour time spent in the office due to the new computer system going live that afternoon. It took awhile to get the call back with the insurance auth for bone scan as well, 5 days instead of 2.

I was a patient of Dr. Nicholas Silvino in 2009 and again in 2014. He is not only a fantastic doctor, but a very compassionate man. My first operation was a trimmed meniscus disc, performed in his office in a matter of minutes. The second appointment was to apply lubrication through an injection to my knee. Every time I leave his office, I feel like a much younger man. I would highly recommend Dr. Silvino and even give him SIX stars if they were available. He is incredible!

I was recommended to Dr. Silvino by a friend of mine who is a doctor. She had knee surgery by him and healed very well. I had shoulder pain. I called Dr. Silvino's office and had an appointment within a week. I came in for my 3:30pm appointment and before I could fill out paperwork was whisked into X-Ray room and then the exam room. Dr. Silvino saw me in minutes. He spent a lot of time explaining my frozen shoulder and causes and treatment. He answer all my questions. I was out by 4:10pm. WOW!!!
