Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Silverman "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. "

Patient Comments (12)

Extremely and unacceptable long wait in waiting room each and every visit...greater than an hour to just get back to the room and then more waiting to see the doctor.

Dr. Silverman is a true healer and skilled surgeon. Sometimes the wait is longer but that is due to his time spent with his patients.

Came time to listen to heart, I'm all wrapped up in my clothing (they said to loosen it only) and their half sheet. Ask why I was there, said my cardiologist said to see him. His...more
