Always a wonderful experience. I have 4 boys and he is fantastic with every one of them. His staff is so knowledgeable and helpful. He is always on time and the kids always love when I say we have an appointment.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Silverman and his staff. I have 2 sons that are patients, one is 11 and the other is 7. My older son has been a patient since he was 5 and has a sensory processing disorder. As you can imagine, this puts an additional challenge to seeing any doctor, much less one that is shining lights in your eyes. Dr. Silverman and his staff have always been sensitive to my son's needs and listening to his many, many lengthy stories about whatever he was into.

Dr. Silverman is incredible! He is efficient and thorough, making the process very easy for our family. My son has been seeing him for the past 2 years, he is 3.
My daughter has always had straight A's in school so it was a surprise to me when I found out she was diagnosed with lazy eye. Although many doctors would say it is too late to reverse any eye damage this late in the game, Dr. Silverman gave us hope. He provided the right tools and treatment and I am so proud to say that her vision has improved from 20/50 to 20/30 in just three months. We still have a lot of work to do but I would strongly recommend him to any one. I am forever grateful.
