Silverman did not let me know CT scan results looked normal. Silverman did not schedule me for a colonoscopy which he said was next step. Silverman did not respond after we brought previous CT scan results from other hospital for Dr to compare. (Even though we called his office a week later and specifically asked him to call and let us know what the difference was.) Did not see or hear from Dr again until hospitalized for diverticulitis again about a month later. Dr saw me once in hospital but gave no information, answered no questions. Released from hospital, told to schedule follow up appt. His office scheduled my appt for afternoon Dr was not there. I was told to call back and change appt. I called back and said to not make appt until I could verify my insurance would pay for it, as the Dr wanted me to get another CT scan. (I complained that the last CT scan he told me to get he never gave me the results of. His office told me that is how he operates, nothing wrong, no call or info.

Dr Silverman is just in it for the money. Herd people in and out like cattle. Doesn't care to talk to his patients just give him the money. FYI-South County surgery center is owned by him and a handful of other doctors so don't let his office lead you to believe that is is part of St. Anthony's hospital.

Didn't returned our calls...said he never got the msgs. Once we did speak with him he was very condescending and he seemed like he was being inconvenienced by our questions! I would not recommend him due to his lack of professionalism.
