    After several ER visits and dealing with other MFM specialists and OBGYNs, I am so pleased to have found Dr. Silver! His expertise and bedside manner was unmatched as he shared updates on my and my baby¿s health. He took such care and time to clarify, explain and put things into context to ease my mind that progress was happening and there was reason for continued optimism. I appreciate the ways he supported both my physical and mental health, solidifying my decision that I had found the right practitioner for me. After so many medical complications that were exacerbated by poor care and misdiagnosis, I am grateful that such a doctor exists.

    Dr. Silver took the time to review my chart and address all of my questions, concerns, and nuanced situation. He was clear and direct but very caring. He clearly outlined what areas of concern he would have about my health during pregnancy, and he provided very relevant information. He reassured me, and I knew that I would receive the absolute best quality of care with his team.

    Dr. Silver didn¿t feel rushed during my appointment. I had a lot of questions and he answered them all. He also followed up on a question he didn¿t know the very next day. He also gave me an insight on delivery that I didn¿t know before and was so respectful about what I desire. He wants me to lead out on what I want during my delivery. Such a refreshing experience!
