Specialties

Dr. Joel S Silver has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

Four Stars

My first cancer experiences with Dr. Silver were fine. He seemed quite knowledgeable about my cancer and he seemed to care. I had a near immediate recurrence of my cancer and then I felt like scare tactics were being used to pressure me into making a choice regarding treatment. I changed doctors.

Five Stars

Dr Silver has been my hemotologist for many years and I found him very caring and compassionate. I recently needed a oncologist and due to my surgeons reccomendation and hospital affiliation I went with another oncologist only to find that she was not a good fit for me. I then switched mid treatment back to Dr silver. And that was the best decision I could have made. He has made my ordeal so much easier to deal with. He spent many days seeing me in the hospital and he always made me feel at ease. He explained everything so I could easily understand what was happening. His caring and the way he treated me never made me feel like he was rushing. I am still seeing him on a regular basis and totally trust him with all of my healthcare issues. I would highly reccomend him to anyone needing a great doctor.

COLD CASE

seems very incompassionate towards patients, he tends to scare u with your diagnosis and during care, very unreliable in getting in touch with patients in regards to your results, seems too busy always and very rushy when attending to patients, tend to looking at his watch very frequently.hIS OPINION IS NOT ALWAYS CORRECT AS FAR AS TREATMENT GOES, WITH DR. SILVER ITS ALWAYS BETTER TO GET SECOND OPINION, HE DOES NOT PUT PATIENT AT EASE WHEN CARING FOR THEM, HE NEEDS TO SHOW BETTER CARE AND SOME COMPASSION AT LEAST.
