Great Doc

Dr Silk is one of the most compassionate and caring doctors my family has ever worked with While my mother has seen multiple doctors over the years, he is the only one who correctly diagnosed her condition, started her on treatment and basically gave her back her life. He is a great diagnostician and also has a great, dry sense of humor. It is obvious he truly cares about his patients, and his staff is also wonderfull I would give 10 stars if I could

Great Physician!

I was really quite surprised to see some of the negative comments posted here. I haven't been going to Dr. Silk for very long but have already noticed a huge, positive difference in my allergy and asthma symptoms. This is the first spring in years that I haven't been completely miserable (I'm still slightly miserable). I have been receiving 6 allergy shots a week for several months and hope that my symptoms will improve even more by next spring. Dr. Silk spent a very long time with me during my first appointment to discuss my history, symptoms, and concerns. He was equally helpful during my most recent follow-up. Maybe his personality isn't for everyone, but I appreciate his candor and sense of humor. He also takes the time to inquire about my career and personal life during visits and seems genuinely interested in helping me. I trust his judgement as a physician and highly recommend him to others.

Rude

This Doctor has no business treating children. He is Rude and impatient with children. If they are scared, his gruff poor attitude doesn't help. He actually threw a temper tantrum in the office because my 5 year old girl was scared of him. I confronted him and he puffed up at me. I have never seen such childish, unprofessional behavior in a grown man. That visit was a waste and I trust nothing he said because I feel he was acting out of anger. NEVER going back. And from the empty waiting room we must have been the only ones to have not gotten the memo.

Excellent Allergist

After 3 years of not being able to smell anything, recurrent sinus infections and antibiotics, Dr Silk is the first doctor who diagnosed my nasal polyps, and allergies. He worked with me to help avoid surgery and I now feel better than I have in years, he is a smart, caring doc who i would (and have) referred family and frinds to
