5 Stars  Dr. Silverman treated my 7 year old daughter for some common, minor issues. His office is run like a dream and everyone from the receptionist to the medical assistant/nurse is on top of their game. Dr. Silverman himself has a wonderful bedside manner and exudes the perfect mix of smarts, common sense, and charm. He communicated with my daughter in a way that made her feel acknowledged and important. He was swift and decisive (which is exactly what I like from a good practitioner) but it was clear that he would have entertained all questions/comments if I had any. I didn't because I was instantly confident in him, he explained everything clearly, and there was no reason to waste time. I will only take her to him and would go to him myself. He is "the guy" to handle dermatological issues large and small for all ages. 5 stars is not enough. –
