January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

dr.silverman done excellent job and nurses are all helpful , courteous and professional. highly recommendable provider. Thank you.

January 28, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. was great, however, the receptionist that makes appointments for future visits, never got me rescheduled for another visit. She said she would call me, but has yet to do it. In addition, the Dr. ordered some additional heart monitoring be done, she said she didn't know if insurance would cover it, and COULD NOT make an appointment for it until the insurance cleared it. Again I am still waiting to hear from her. Not sure she should be doing what she is doing, just didn't seem to be happy or care. Not a good position for her when you have to deal with people all day. I wish I new her name to pass on to you. It was the young brunette girl working at the appointment desk on 1-3-19 at 2 pm.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

I have been a patient of Dr. Silverman since 2000, and value his judgment regarding my heart heath, his advice and opinion Is always important to you, a great Doctor.

January 16, 2019 6:00 PM

November 18, 2018 6:00 PM

Look, I first met Dr. Silverman in 1998 when he performed my angioplasty. Since then he has monitored my heart health professionally and expertly. Since Advocate took over, I have been getting these surveys. Why? I see him every 6 months and if I am hospitalized, he is always there for me. He has my greatest respect. That will never change. You are lucky to have him.

March 7, 2018 6:00 PM
