November 22, 2014

My husband and I absolutely appreciated the time Dr. Silver took with us. He immediately set my mind at ease. My husband couldn't stop talking about the excellent care to our friends.

November 03, 2014

Dr. Silver is always in and out pretty quick, but that's probably just because I usually haven't had many issues or questions I need to bring up. He's always seemed interested in my care and has been extremely calm and flexible with my needs. It's been really refreshing (many doctors, particularly in OB, aren't like that).

October 28, 2014

Dr. Silver was very sensitive to our situation and was able to provide us with good information as well.

September 10, 2014

Dr. Silver is great at explaining his thoughts and also about easing our worries. We have been really happy to be under his care.

September 01, 2014

I did not feel that he took my concerns seriously. I have done tons of research, and he didn't even ask what I knew already and put no stock in any of it. I have friends who have had multiple miscarriages due to this issue - because dr.'s didn't look at them as individuals that might be negatively affected. Very disappointing.

July 04, 2014

very very helpful, great follow-up. honest and straightforward about opinion/ recommendations

May 12, 2014

We were so impressed! we really trust this team!

January 10, 2014

Dr. Silver was very informative, friendly, helpful, and really spent the time to make sure I had all my questions answered.

December 20, 2013

Maybe next time provide wrtten instructions on what is expected for glucose tolerance test. Was I to be NPO not NPO not very clear.

December 13, 2013

Dr. Silver is very smart. Great doctor!

November 22, 2013

Sam & Dr. Silver are the best! They both know their stuff & I love how laid back they are

November 18, 2013

Still will never see anyone besides Dr. Silver! He's the best of the best.

November 15, 2013

I didn't get the chance to thank Sam afterward, but she was very present with my concern for this baby after my previous miscarriage. I could tell she wanted to be able to quickly offer me the reassurance that I needed, and I truly appreciate it. Dr. Silver was fantastic as always. It is so nice to feel like a person, and to have my questions validated. He makes me feel very comfortable with my questions and concerns, and always gives me thorough answers, even answering questions that i didn't know I had.

November 11, 2013

I was told that the TDaP shot is NOW recommended on pregnant women and that I will be receiving it on my next appointment. I didn't like the fact that I wasn't ask if I wanted it or not. I've done my research on the matter before the event and chose not to have this vaccine while pregnant. Let the patients know that they have a choice.

September 03, 2013

Provider did not review with me verbally of the medications I was taking were safe during pregnancy, I would have liked to reviewed that. Even if they did review them, I would have liked for them to say they were ok/not ok rather than me going home and having to look them up.

August 29, 2013

We love Dr. Silver - no question is dumb with him - Thanks!

August 19, 2013

I already have recommended this team to several friends.

August 05, 2013

I will be using a home birth midwife. However, if I experience any complications this would be my first choice to come back to.

May 29, 2013

I always feel comfortable with Dr. Silver. I've seen him for this pregnancy and my previouse one, he is always so helpful and informative. I appreciate that his main focus is on positive things about my pregnancy. I trust his information and appreciate the great care he provides for me and my family.

May 21, 2013

As stated, Dr. Silver is the only one I will see. He truly cares about me and my situation and I completely trust and respect him. I also adore Rita- she knows who I am and is very good to me and patient and knowledgeable through all of my questions.

May 20, 2013

I always have a great visit with Dr. Silver.

May 13, 2013

We love Dr. Silver and Rita! We feel like VIP's with them & the office, MA staff.

April 22, 2013

no medications or follow up care

April 22, 2013

I spent most of my time with the midwife, Rita. It was my first time meeting her and Dr. Silver, and she was very sweet. She had a very calming presence and spoke in a soothing tone. She was good about answering any questions and providing a lot of information up front so a lot of questions I had were answered before I even had to ask them.

March 01, 2013

I met mainly with the nurse practitioner, she asked all the questions and answered all my questions. I just wish I could have talked more with the doctor about my concerns with out having to repeat myself. I expected to meet more we with the doctor not the nurse practitioner.

January 28, 2013

I just love the Nurse Midwife - she does her job very well. Dr. Silver is fantastic too!

December 26, 2012

We love Dr. Silver. My husband is always leary of new Doctors but feel very comfortable with Dr. Silver - thank you!

December 11, 2012

As a first time, mother-to-be, I had a lot of questions and Dr. Silver never made me feel silly. He answered all my questions, as did the mid-wife, and all the while made me feel important.

December 03, 2012

I love meeting with Rita. She is so awesome. I really appreciate that she shows concern about what's going on with me and she is very easy to talk to.

November 19, 2012

Both the Doctor and the Mid-Wife were awesome, Caring and very willing to answer all of our questions. This is our first, so we kept them really busy with questions and we did not feel rushed at all.

November 19, 2012

We were very pleased with our meeting with dr silver! He explained everything so well and answered all of our questions and then some.

October 16, 2012

Dr. Silver is very thorough and thoughtful with his explanation of treatment for me. He knows that I can be a worried patient and he takes his time to help settle my nerves. I also had a great experience with Sam, the midwife. She is very caring and takes her time with me. I love them both!

October 02, 2012

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Silver and Rita Paegle! They are so smart, kind and fun to talk to. I receive excellent care every time I am there.

September 27, 2012

Dr. Silver has an amazing way of communicating with me. He always addresses my concerns, and doesn't make me feel rushed. He even anticipates concerns that I may have and answers questions that I didn't even know I had yet. He is very kind and caring. This visit his expertise and kindness really came into play.

September 05, 2012

I felt that Dr Silver was condescending and surprisingly unsympathetic about my previous losses and reasons for seeking the appointment. I felt he was dismissive of my concerns and impatient with my questions.

September 04, 2012

Doctor Silver was very knowledgeable. We will recommend him to anyone we come in contact with.

June 04, 2012

I found Dr. Silver to be very logical, and I like that in doctors. I liked that he took my concerns and let me know what he thought about my treatments, but also let me have time to make my own decisions. I don't usually go by first impressions alone when it comes to my care, so we will see how things go from now on! So far, I really like him and the staff.

May 02, 2012

My father came with me to my appointment and he is extremely good at asking the right questions and getting everything out of an appointment that he can. Had he not been with me, I'm not convinced that Dr. Silver would have spent nearly as much time with me or explained as much as he did.

April 28, 2012

I have had a very good experience with Sam and Dr. Silver for many years. They are caring and competent and give me excellent care.

March 07, 2012

I don't know that I would recommend this care provider only because from my one visit being so short, it's difficult to make any conclusive expectations about him.

March 07, 2012

They all sat down in the chairs to speak with me and my family.

January 25, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Silver was willing to spend as much time with us as he did. I figured he'd be uninterested in answering simple questions about foods and medicines. But he welcomed all questions. I was also very pleased that he didn't talk down to me or treat me as though I were less than educable. I was VERY happy to learn he had a great sense of humor. Stuffy doctors don't put anyone at ease.
