Specialties

Dr. Richard M Silver has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

Mrs.

Minimal waiting time includuding exam room. The facility is exceptionally clean and well staffed. Most residents were satisfactory and willing to answer your concerns. Dr. Silver is very curt if you have question about treatment or test he doesn't like to be questioned. Poor bad side manor, attempts to intimidate, I was refered for What I latter discovered was a painful and unnecessary test, he prefered blood work to be performed in his building. When you question test his response is "You have insurance, don't you?" made distasteful comment about another MUSC Physcian. I strongly would not recommend Dr. Silver, I was very uncomfortable with his approach, and demeanor and never felt I understood what was my condition, treatmeny or prognosis, and asking was at your own risk.
