I had a real nasty infection near my eye caused by a visit w/t a different Doc. He tried to resolve the issue but could not. Dr. Silkiss got the job done, prescribed the correct remedy & the right meds & her Fees was reasonable. She’s also gentle and exact. Dr. Silkiss is a real professional and she conducts herself that way as opposed to some docs I’ve visited who wanted to be my BFF & sell me procedures. I’ve recommended her to my family, so yes, I hold her in high regard. She’s now my “face & Eye” Doctor for life.

Took our 2 year old in to evaluate her eyelid.Dr. Silkiss told her not to scream because her ears hurt? (She was 2!)When it came time to evaluate, she didn't even come close to my daughter, she looked from her chair and said almost indifferently "I don't see anything in her eye." We paid $200 for the visit, didn't even get checked, and baby's eye still in pain.Dr. Silkiss, an ophthalmologist saw her a few days later and removed an eye lash growing inwardly. You should have seen that! Heartless!!

I have never had a worse experience with a Dr.!!! My consultation was scheduled weeks in advance; yet I waited almost 2 hours to see this lady. She came in, no explanation for my wait, asked why I was there, pulled down on my eyelid and said I needed surgery. There was no explanation about the procedure or clarification if both eyes needed to be done. I asked for examples of the procedure and was told to check on line (this would be generic photos - not her work). Very rude. Only 15 min.

After 2 months of wait, I had a 5 pm appointment at her WC office on Friday Sept 1st. They charged my credit card $225 upfront fee. I waited until 6:30 in the waiting room before I was admitted and only to be seen by two others who did unrelated eye exams and recorded everything wrong in the computer as I was watching them type. I left at 6:40 still not seen by her. I have not received an email or call explaining this very unprofessional treatment or refund of my fee. Very disappointing.

Dr. Silkiss is very expert. I haven't meet another specialist as skilled and knowledgeable. She was recommended to me years ago by another extraordinary eye doctor. A family member sees her also.
