"Excellent ENT all around."

"Dr. Silverman saved my 3 month old's life. He is compassionate, empathetic, very well rounded & took the time to listen to my story when no one else would. He operated on my 3 month old shortly after a cyanotic episode, opened his airway & ever since he has been smiling. I am a physician assistant & I can confidently say he is one of the best physicians I've known!!"

"exceptional service across the board. 5 stars if i could. Dr. Silverman was very informative on my condition, medication, treatment, and procedure. he even followed up with me serval times to ensure my safety and healing as properly as possible. he answered all of my questions as well as my fathers concerns in a very detailed manner and he also expressed every possible outcome of my situation so i was aware thoroughly of what could happen. My favorite doctor so far, because of his professionalism and how friendly he was. an amazing doctor as well as an individual, i can tell he loves what he does for a living and that makes all the difference."

"I appreciate the time Dr. Silverman spent with me going over my video stroboscopy and medical records. He was very compassionate, knowledgeable and informative on my vocal issues which I really appreciate. I use my voice for work let alone for every day use like we all do and I am very scared of losing this function. I saw him as a second opinion since Kristen Beadle (my voice therapist) recommended him and most likely I will be back to see him again soon. He made me feel confident that a surgery and lots of vocal rest would indeed help my situation in the long run. He also took extra time to answer all my questions and concerns which means a lot. Not all Dr.'s take the time and make that effort. Please thank Dr. Silverman for me and his staff for me. :)"

"I don't think that very good describes how helpful and amazing dr Silverman was. My son is slightly deaf in his ear, he is 2 and a half and we have gone to several doctors about his condition. I have never experienced a doctor who had taken so much time with us and was genuinely concerned about him and how he can help him. My husband and I were so happy Dr. Silverman was well worth the wait and I wish that every doctor cared as much for his patients as I can tell dr. Silverman cared about our son."
