"Dr. Silverman is wonderful!"
05/30/2018
"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."
