My experience with Dr. Silverstein was very poor. He pushed to have cataract surgery done in order to charge for premium lenses. After a "complicated" surgery I am left with a chronic eye condition requiring regular visits to a retina specialist, daily eye drops to keep infection down, and eye injections to control possible retina damage. He is too much in a hurry to do a good job. Appointments are rushed with Dr. Silverstein being present about 3 minutes of the hours you spend in his office.

A very compassionate doctor who seems to care and sympathize with your condition, the nurses are very kind and helpful too.
