What a wonderful office to go to. I was fearful of seeing a surgeon and from the moment they answered the phone to my initial consultation with the Dr. I was put at ease. He takes the time to listen. Not may docs do that anymore.

My husband's surgery went so well! Dr. Silverfarb was so personal and answered our questions very patiently. My husband needed no pain medications at all and he has major surgery. I definitely recommend him.

Saw him after I hurt my back in a car accident. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about my particular issue. Wait time in the office was a little long but not bad and I'd rather have that then a surgeon with an empty office. I would absolutely recommend him.
