Great care!

Dr Silver listens intensely to anything I have to say as a patient. He is patient with helping me to understand and elevate my anxiety or fears. I think that he goes beyond his comfort zone in dealing with his patients and allows them to be part of the discussion.

caring and thoughtful

April 03, 2017

Although i had to wait for an available appointment- I felt very good about the communication level of my visit and follow up care. The most professional and caring visit I have had in three years... I have chosen to leave my current doctor at UPMC for a varity of reasons that did not show concern over how I felt and my deal with my current condition.

I was very pleased to have been able to meet with Dr.Silver. I thought he took time with me to explain things I had been concerned about.
