Dr.Silverstein is AMAZING! He has great bedside manner and my mind at ease about any procedure he is was performing both in clinic and in the OR. He never seemed rushed and was more than happy to answer my questions both in person and via portal. Responses were prompt and kind. Can't say enough good things about Dr.Silverstein!

Dr Silverstein was fantastic. He made a difficult thing (eye exam with a belligerent 3 year old) as easy as it could possibly be. He was patient, thorough and understanding.
