in Odessa, TX |
My kids have been seeing him for almost 10 yrs and we drive 800 miles round trip to do so. On this journey, I have crossed paths with many medical professionals. However, Dr. Silver and Dr. Mandujano have proved to be 2 of the most sincere, knowledgeable, and trust-worthy doctors I have encountered. The office wait time is long, but the care there and the availability of their doctors after hours make it worth sitting a while.

Dr. Silver is amazing. I feel at ease having him as my children's' pulmonologist. He is very thorough, caring, and easily accessible. There is always a doctor on call after hours for emergencies and his nurses return calls right away. The wait to be seen can sometimes be long but it is worth it. He is never rushed when taking the time to see us. He is very detailed and ensures we are comfortable with the action plan. He seems to truly care about his patients and their succes.

My son has been seeing Dr Silver for years because he is simply the best pediatric pulmonologist in the country! We drive over two hours each way because Dr Silver is worth his weight in gold! Dr Silver figured out my son's problem when no one else could, specially tailored a care plan to his needs, and he's been well for the longest period of time in his whole life! Thank you Dr Silver!!!
Great doctor but having to wait over an hour to start appt. is not worth the great doctor.
