I have been a patient of Dr. Silver's for many years. In May I had a surgery and they required an up front prepay of $1100.00. I paid this, but then my insurance stated I was due a refund of over $500 in June. I contacted Dr. Silver's billing (Ridges Surgery Center - he is part owner) in June...more

Made me wait over 45 minutes at my first visit, no apology. After a brief 60 second exam, he had 1 foot out the door for the remainder of the visit.

Made me wait 45 minutes in an exam room to have stitches removed!! A nurse checked in at 30 minutes...said she would get him, yet he took another 15 minutes. When he did arrive, he only offered a small excuse & little apology. Dr Silver is very young...& needs more patient consideration!
