I have been seeing Dr. Silverstein for over 10 years and every time I see him he has the same interest in my care as when I met him. He is upbeat and rarely shows sign of doctor's fatigue. He listens to me and recommends what's best for me.

Dr. Silverstein has always, during every visit and his review of my blood and urine test results, has gone above and beyond the primary reason I visit him. Beyond any doubt he has my good health as his goal and I appreciate it.

I was referred to Dr Silverstein by my primary care physician. Prior to the referral I had limited information about my kidney issues. During the initial consultation Dr Silverstein explained CKD in a thorough and non threatening manner. He ordered numerous lab tests and explained the importance of each. He also made a modification to my medication regime, again with an explanation on the need. On the follow up visit he reviewed the test results in detail and a plan of action was charted out. Bottom line - I already have great confidence in Dr Silverstein!

Meeting with Dr Silverstein was a delightful experience. He listened patiently and was genuinely concerned. I learned more about my kidneys from this one visit than any previous medical appointment. And it was so nice to have encouragement. Dr Silverstein earned my confidence quickly. He is knowledgeable, kind, caring, and very nice. So glad our paths have crossed.

Dr. Silverstein does an excellent job in reviewing lab results, current issues and what is happening in my life that may impact my health issues, genuinely interested in my medical and personal issues. Never in a hurry to move on to another patient.

Professional in all respects, Dr. Silverstein and staff. Communication was detailed and all questions answered to my satisfaction. Copies of all test results were given to me which reinforced his verbal comments. Dr. Silverstein was happy and gave no indication that my visit was causing him to be rushed to any degree. I look forward to my next visit. R. Kellerhouse
