The best, personal, committed, takes his time and listens

I would highly recommend Dr. Silverstein. He is very kind, professional and has a great patient and doctor relationship.. He is very thorough and takes time to answer your questions in a way that is easily understood.. There are other specialists in his field that are much closer to where I live but I drive the extra miles in order to see Dr. Silverstein.

Dr. Silverstein was very friendly and informative. He let me know what he was planning to look for from the tests done and what he would do to help with my problem. His nurse and other staff were nice and made me feel comfortable.
Dr Silverstein and his staff is always so nice and helpful! I have been coming here for several years and I always feel comfortable when I leave. He makes sure to answer all of your question and make sure you are in the know about your own situation.

I have been a patient of Dr. Silverstein for over 20 years. He literally saved my life. I have three chronic diseases and I'm 72 years old so I have seen more than my share of doctors. Dr. Silverstein and his staff are undoubtedly the best! Larry H.

I don't believe you'll find a more skilled or compassionate physician anywhere than Dr Silverstein! From my first appointment, when I was at stage 4 ckd, I felt I had the best! I've received exemplary care to improve my overall health condition. Dr Silverstein, and his excellent staff, stay right on top of my health care! My experience has been outstanding in every aspect of my care. I feel blessed to have such an excellent Doctor! I highly recommend Dr. Silverstein!

Dr. Silverstein is a pleasant, knowledgeable and delightful physician. I have never felt ill at ease around him and we can talk easily and freely about my ckd and other issues, but also about other things such as family.
