Specialties

Dr. Robert A Silverman has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Dermatology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

Highly recommend Dr Silverman

Dr Silverman doesn't recommend a variety of unnecessary additional procedures but provides a balanced recommendation. He is practical and knowledgable. He is also extraordinarily skilled with kids. His office staff is not particularly friendly but they get the job done. And Dr Silverman--he is a rare find.

One Star

If you are looking for a skin check for your children for skin cancer, he does only a very cursory look at the skin, and does not take the issue seriously, despite the fact that Melanoma is on the rise for children. Also, the wait time at Georgetown is horrible, often several hours.

Good Doctor

I went to Dr. Silverman after an unsafactory experience with another dermatologist. On my initial exam, he noticed a small pimple on my back and had me return after 6 months to check it.It was still there, so he biopsed it and found it to be a basal cell carcinoma. He surgically removed it in his office and it healed quickly. This gives me confidence in his ability to discern real problems from benign skin blemishes.

Excellent doctor

Dr. Silverman is one of the most knowledgeable and well-informed doctors in the metropolitan area. He is a teacher, who often has residents with him, and if you ask good questions, he will give you honest and straight-forward answers. Dermatology is not magic, and sometimes you have to try several things to see which works for a particular person, and sometimes the cure is not quick. But I would recommend this doctor to everyone.
