I went to a different Gastroenterolgist before I made an appointment with Dr. Silvers and because I wasn't very comfortable or impressed with the other group's physician so I decided to see Dr. Silvers after a referral from a friend. He is such an easy to talk to, caring doctor. When you have to see a doctor of this nature it's easy to be uncomfortable to begin with, somehow he really helps to make the anaxity go away.
