I saw Dr. Silverman for a second opinion in Mar.2019. She was instrumental in getting my treatment started. I was seeing a doctor at Seidman/westside location. Dr. Silverman immediately wanted test done, due to the aggressive type cancer I had. My insurance was holding things up and my other doctor was waiting for approval from my insurance. Dr. Silverman, because she is the director ...was able to get several test I needed, done that very day. She push the test through "Stat" and then called me herself, after business hours, about 6:30pm to tell me the results of my test. Dr. Silverman said the test showed my cancer was not found outside the original area. I broke down in tears. I knew I would need Chemo and lots of trips back and forth to clinic. With an hour trip each way to Beechwood ...I remained with my other Seidman doctor (westside) for my treatments. I will never forget how Dr. Siverman put my health as her main concern rather than $$$. Thank You Dr. Silverman

She saved my life. Another oncologist at another facility , the first oncologist I saw, put me on the palliative list because I was 74 yrs old. She treated patients to get them back into the work force. I was retired. I didn't fit her treatment criteria. .I got an appointment with Dr. Silverman who listened carefully, took notes, and treated my breast cancer aggressively , knowledgeably, and with personal respect. Four years later I am still cancer free.

I can’t say enough good about Dr Silverman. Although it’s been 30+ years, I will never forget how she treated my mother who was battling breast cancer and radiation pneumonitis. Her kindness towards my mom & our whole family meant the world to us. Her staff was great as well. I have recommended her many times over the years & will continue to do so

Dr. Silverman is a knowledgeable doctor but with poor bedside manner, no eye contact, and doesn’t like to be bothered outside of office hours. I felt very unheard with my concerns and that I was a bother to her. Love her staff and I feel like they compensate for her lack of compassion and kindness. If you want a doctor who looks at you as a person not just a patient then DO NOT have Dr. Silverman treat you with your cancer. Highly disappointed.
