Dr. Silver is the best. At a hospital in a different state I was told that blockage was in an artery too small to stent and to treat it with medications but the symptoms got worse. At UPMC Dr. Silver was determined to find out what was going on with my heart. He personally took me down to have stress test showed me what was going on and took me in to have stent put in this wee artery. It was difficult but he was up to the task. I'd never had a Doctor behave with such care and compassion not to mention skill. Also, the entire staff were very thoughtful and competent. Thanks to all at UPMC.

Dr. Silver is an excellent physician who genuinely cares about his patients. He taught me a great deal about how to improve my health with simple lifestyle changes such as proper nutrition before immediately resorting to a medicine regimen of daily pills.
