Austin, TX |
After seeing 2 podiatrists in Austin, I determined that I needed a doctor with more advanced skills, experience, and knowledge to take my case to the next level. After an exhaustive internet search, I found Dr. Silvester! After my first visit, I immediately knew I was in the right hands. Since Dr. Silvester has been treating me, I have made signifcant progess and am on the path to being able to walk with normal foot function again. I drive 2.5 hours round trip to see him because of his skill.

I had a previous podiatrist at stone oak which I wasn't crazy about being that my residence is in schertz it wasn't worth the drive.....so went browsing in the internet to find a closer Dr...well found Dr Silvester wow so glad from the time I called his office it's been great try him....you won't be sorry.

I went to see Dr. Silvester with a severely injured toe. I was impressed with the office and with the pleasant and professional staff. Dr Silvester performed an in-office procedure on my toe and it is healing well. I wouldn't hesitate to go back for any foot or ankle problem and would highly recommend this practice to friends and family.
in Jourdanton, TX |
Dr Silvester was exceptional caring and gentle in the procedure. I am a VERY scared patient and was very nervous about even getting a shot to deaden the area, but Mrs. Cumpian was very gentle and took her time to give me the shot which was to my surprise very gentle and put me at ease immediately. I am a horrible patient but they made me feel at ease and Didn't hurt me as I was prepared for. Even so late in the day they took the extra time to ease me into the procedure and be patient with me,
