He is "hands down" just the "best of the best" in terms of what NWMH is, "at the bottom line", all about. Dr Silverberg is firstly both a good & caring person as well as a quintessential, optimal practioner as a cardio specialist! My indivudual admiration for him as both a human being & personal physician has "no bounds" per the manner in which he has comported himself since we had our very first appointment years ago in 2011.

He went out of his way to see me that day, when he was not due in to see pts in-person. As this was my first meeting with him, I felt a telehealth visit was something I was not comfortable with at the time for a first appointment. His explanations of my condition were easy to follow and understand. He was recommended by my PCP at NM. I know what physical symptoms I need to watch for and to call for another appointment, if they should occur. Excellent visit and I really enjoyed meeting with him.
