The best attribute regarding Dr Silver besides being a fine physician is his friendly and caring manner with his patients who are often in severe pain. Dr Silver has no evident arrogance or ego prior to and during his gentle examinations, injections and procedures, which is a breath if fresh air these days. Als0, recommended on site, the Altman Physical Therapy Center with able professionals on hand compliment Dr Silver's nurturing sensitive style.

He has been my Doctor for20 yearsaand has always given me the best of care and treatment. He has also put me in touch with other top notch doctor's for my other medical issues. I can't say enough about him or his practice. The staff is most helpful and courteous.

I have been seeing Dr Silver for the past year and he is a very good doctor. He does not rush and is very thorough. I would highly recommend this doctor.

Never saw the doctor. This guy I think he was the office manager was awful and very aggressive. He started to act as if I was going to pull a fast one with the insurance. I'm a new patience. Then I explained that my insurance works 80/20 then he sat down to explain with the pages highlighted as if I was stupid then I told him well if there's a copay I'll pay it. Continued, it was too much. Pre-reg with zocdoc they didn't want to print the forms! Horrible horrible experience! Run away!
