Specialties

Dr. Michael S Silverman has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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.

very disappointed

I though I like Dr. Silverman until my father actually needed him. Once my father's issues increased, All questions go to voice mail, and I often would not get a call back. My last straw was when my father was having symptoms and I called to either get an appointment or see if the Dr would suggest another urinalysis. No One called me back. When I called his answering service, they hung up on me. When I finally received a call back from him. He asked to questions, was curt and told me that he was done with just "doing things on the fly" and that I would need to take my 84 year old father to the ER if he needed treatment. At the end of my father's life, this is not what we need. How uncaring and arrogant!

saved the day!

I needed an urgent appointment before leaving town and Dr. Silverman and his staff got me in 15 minutes before regular office hours. He diagnosed my bronchitis and got me on meds fast. I really appreciate his effort and care.

Five Stars

I recently needed an appointment for my mother who hasn't seen a doctor in years. I called Dr. Silverman's office and was given an appointment the same day. He was so kind to my mother and helped us both understand her medical problems. I highly recommend him.

not going back

Impossible to get anyone to answer the phone when calling for an appointment. Called because I had strep throat and my voice mail was returned 6 hours later to tell me they can only schedule me for and appointment the following week; this is simply unacceptable in the medical field... just ended up going to an urgent care. During my first appointment here the doctor was indifferent and seemed like he could care less... also, narrow minded and has a 70's mentality and certain arrogance about him. I'd rather go to an urgent care every time I need medical attention, than go back to Silverman.
