I am not a fan of the majority of the medical profession but had to undergo knee surgery this year. I am grateful I happened upon Dr. Silver. He is what I wish for in every doctor -- professional, knowledgable, competent, positive, passionate -- and most importantly, respectful of his patients. I wish Dr. Silver came in all dr shapes and sizes but alas, I now have a sports medicine dr I trust. Note: I cannot recommend TOA as a practice, but highly recommend Dr. Silver and NC Specialty Hospital.

This is the best doctor you could ask for. Not only is he highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable, he really cares about his patients. I had a meniscus tear in both knees over a four year period and I would not have gone to anyone but him. He is the best, hands down.
