Dr. Kevin H Silver has the following 1 specialty

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Dr. Silver's diagnosis lacking; nurse Becky is rude and unprofessional

My mother has been a patient of Dr. Silver's for years and has been mostly satisfied. Recently his diagnosis was very grave. Her suffering, fatigue, and lack of oxygen had left my tiny mother unable to care for herself. We went for a second opinion, which is an acceptable practice within the medical community. However, Dr. Silver and his staff were not happy about this decision. In discussing our mother's health with Nurse Becky, she became frustrated that most siblings were from out of town. One sibling is a cardiovascular surgeon who certainly wanted to speak with his mother's doctor. (He never did) Her daughter, who did much consoling and encouraging to her mom, needed accurate information from the nurse. The other son and caregiver, needed to make her appointments. This was too much for Nurse Becky. She eventually refused to speak with more than one sibling. She gave inaccurate information from one sibling to another and even lied saying that one sibling. After a thorough workup and a second opinion was rendered, I called Nurse Becky to ask her to relay to Dr. Silver that his original diagnosis was lacking and that her real problem was in fact something very different and very obvious....thought they would want to know. She informed me that it was the "Second Dr.'s place to inform them of what was happening with my mom". I told her that as a "customer of their practice" that I had every right to let them know myself what was happening with my mom and their diagnosis and lack thereof was wrong". AND, this is what you should know if you are considering this practice. I was informed that we are NOT CUSTOMERS...we are just patients. Really? What medical practice in this day doesn't realize that we are paying customers for a service rendered. Clearly, this practice doesn't get that yet. In all of our dealings, they have treated us as though we were bothering them and that they were doing us a favor by treating our mother. Well, you didn't treat her, or us, very well. I have never written a negative thing about anyone or any organization until today. As my dear little 85 year old mother lies in an operating room 500 miles away from me, your lack of regard or care for HER (your "patient"), much less me (just another human being), is unacceptable.
