      Dr. Silverman is gifted. He is also experienced - not just a vascular issues, but in treating how the body works holistically. He listens intently and invests himself in his patients. I was able to discontinue Warfarin ahead of schedule because of his proactive ordering of blood tests. He has seen me speedily for unexpected ultrasounds and discovered an underlying endocrine problem that I misinterpreted as vascular. He is genuinely concerned about patient needs and very dedicated.
      Terrible scheduling everytime. Have been seeimg this DR since may of 2015 and every visit told office will call you in 2-4 weeks to schedule procedure. Never happens....just follow ups scheduled. Today is the last visit....giving DR paperwork to have records transferred to another DR. Don't waste your time here.

      Dr. Silverman's Care Philosophy

      I have been caring for patients with peripheral vascular disease for over 25 years. I am truly committed in getting the best outcome and using all modalities and technologies to achieve this result. I have strived to stay on the cutting edge of vascular surgery to offer my patients multiple ways to achieve the best outcome. I am a strong believer in amputation prevention and I pursue this via a variety of complex vascular procedures many which are minimally invasive. Please visit my web site: amputation-prevention.com

      I care for patients with carotid stenosis and I have performed over 1000 carotid endarterectomies. Most of these are done under local anesthesia which is particularly conducive for the elderly population.

      Most patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms are treated with a stent, a minimally invasive approach. They are usually done under local anesthesia and patients are typically discharged the same day.
