Doctor Silverman is an excellent physician in large part because of the clear explanations of his diagnoses and proposed treatment options. He has an endearing "bed side manner" and even went the extra mile in calling the day after my procedure to check on any issues I might have had. I have the utmost confidence in Dr S and would refer him to anyone who needs a top-flight dermatologist.

We went to Dr.Silverman for my 9 months baby with eczema. Until the visit we had trouble to keep the itching under control but now my baby is feeling much better and we are very happy with the result. Thanks to the doctor and team. I would highly reccommend

The best in my (unfortunately) vast sampling of dermatologists. Much more experienced and knowledgeable than most, superior judgment. Dr. S takes his time with patients. Staff is excellent, too.

My daughter had this wart looking skin infection on her elbow, which her pediatrician and allergist refused to treat and recommended us to go to a dermatologist. I did some online research and decided to go to Dr. Silverman. He is a knowledgeable physician with great professional ethics, and explained the condition to us very well as well as how it can be treated.

Awesome Doctor!! I guess Dr Silverman truly a passionate doctor by means. I went to see him for my child for one thing, besides that out of an observation he pointed something to me that my pediatricians, and orthopedic pediatrician couldn’t figure out for years ! How can I not give him 5 star. Rather he is a super star based on my experience. ??

I am about to retire and wanted to see Dr. Silverman before my insurance changed. I was told to come in at 3pm same day. Although I was "squeezed in" my waiting time was short and my visit wasn't rushed. Dr. Silverman took time to hear my concerns and treated me for my condition. He was professional, thorough, and understanding.

I have been Dr. Silverman's patient for a log time, 30+ years. His office is always efficiently run and he combines deep technical knowledge with a practical and easy going demeanor. He explains the diagnosis, offers options, and spends the time to make me feel that he is engaged.
