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.
