I've been a patient of Dr. Silver's for 6 years now and he is still a wonderful, kind and gentle doctor (with a sense of humor too!). The area of the body he deals with can be embarrassing but he puts you at ease and makes it "ok" to talk about. I would highly recommend him. The only downside is he has no evening or Saturday appointments if you are trying to avoid taking off from work. Also, best to go early in the morning otherwise there is sometimes a good 30-40 minute wait in the late afternoon.
