Specialties

Dr. Bruce N Silverstein has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Undiagnosis

Dismiss the cause of your symptoms as coming from stress, anxiety, or some other emotional disturbance. Sometimes your doctor is unable to identify a physical cause for your symptoms and turns reflexively to stress or anxiety as the explanation, given that the power of the mind to manufacture physical symptoms from psychological disturbances is not only well-documented in the medical literature but a common experience most of us have had (think of “butterflies” in your stomach when you’re nervous). And sometimes your doctor will be right. A physician named John Sarno knows this well and had a cohort of patients who seemed to have benefited greatly from his theory that some forms of back pain are created by unconscious anger. However, the diagnosis of stress and anxiety should never be made by exclusion (meaning every other reasonable possibility has been appropriately ruled out and stress and anxiety is all that’s left); rather, there should be positive evidence pointing to stress and anxiety as the cause (e.g., you should actually be feeling stressed and anxious about something). Unfortunately, doctors frequently reach for a psychosomatic explanation for a patient’s symptoms when testing fails to reveal a physical explanation, thinking if they can’t find a physical cause then no physical cause exists. But this reasoning is as sloppy as it is common. Just because science has produced more knowledge than any one person could ever master, we shouldn’t allow ourselves to imagine we’ve exhausted the limits of all there is to know (a notion as preposterous as it is attractive). Just because your doctor doesn’t know the physical reason your wrist started hurting today doesn’t mean the pain is psychosomatic. A whole host of physical ailments bother people every day for which modern medicine has no explanation: overuse injuries (you’ve been walking all your life and for some reason now your heel starts to hurt); extra heart beats; twitching eyelid muscles; headaches. He was so rude and told me go to your mental counselor!

Please Reconsider Going To This Doctor

I don't make negative comments online, but would like people to know that had Dr. S done his job instead of giving nonconstructive comments in a flippant manner, and ignoring obvious and severe symptoms, someone in my family would've have been diagnosed quickly and properly. In reviewing my family member's medical records, they read as though the doctor wasn't concerned about the debilitating symptoms, and some entries were simply wrong/contradictory (example: "patient gaining weight" when ALL recorded weights showed ongoing loss) . Please do your homework, as best you can, in researching your next GP. We'd been asking our family member to find another GP. Unfortunately, they did not. If you are obviously very ill, no doctor should tell you that it is because of your age (young or old). I hope our family member will be a cautionary tale for Dr. S. The diagnosis was an obvious one.

Five Stars

Dr Bruce listens to what you say is wrong and works hard to find a solution and he is very respectful of your time as long as you respect his time as well. When I suffered from Vertigo, a few years ago, he was compassionate and understood how debilitating it can be. I would recommend him, he is a doctor that can be trusted.
