I had a real nasty infection near my eye caused by a visit w/t a different Doc. He tried to resolve the issue but could not. Dr. Silkiss got the job done, prescribed the correct remedy & the right meds & her Fees was reasonable. She’s also gentle and exact. Dr. Silkiss is a real professional and she conducts herself that way as opposed to some docs I’ve visited who wanted to be my BFF & sell me procedures. I’ve recommended her to my family, so yes, I hold her in high regard. She’s now my “face & Eye” Doctor for life.
Quite obvious, Dr. Silkiss is a very skilled and dedicated surgeon. I like her “get right to the point” attitude. If you have questions, she answers; no nonsense! Dr. Silkiss asked my husband if he had any questions; then she gave him his post surgery orders: Buy 1 dozen peach colored roses, very soothing & therapeutic! Dr. Silkiss, I think he forgot! Too caught up in his nursing duties!!
She immediately rejected me. Came in running late from surgery. Sat in front of pretty silent. I had to initiate the conversation. She got her tool, measured my eye socket SO HARD... I light weight screamed! My eye has been feeling worst ever since. All within around 5 minutes.. either she doesn't like black female's and/or Medicare. :+(
I am so grateful to Dr Silkiss ... many months after my successful surgery with her, I was vacationing in Puerto Rico. On the last night of my stay, I took a fall - missing a step in a step down dining room of a family member. My eye lid was gashed from my eye glasses when I fell. It was a Sunday evening. It was a holiday weekend (Memorial day). My flight home was scheduled for 10 hours later. I had to decide whether to go to ER in San Juan and reschedule my flight for two days later (only available flight). I phoned Dr Silkiss office - delighted that there was a cell phone for her offered at the end of the message. I called. She answered ... on a Sunday Holiday ... from a former patient. She had me send her a photo of the injured eye. We spoke and texted. She advised my options including a colleague I could contact in San Juan if I decided to stay. She was calm and clear in the options she offered me. She was reassuring that I could continue on my flight home and she would see me in her office the next morning if I wished. She reassured me that she could do stitches, if necessary, even after the 24 hour window that others said I couldn't do. She had a wonderful, clear, calm manner with me... whether she actually remembered me or not ... On her advice I was able to have my partner clean up the wound and apply liquid bandage and a butterfly so I could get home asap .. ore than 114 hour trip. She saw me the next morning as offered. My eye is doing well and I am very appreciative that there is such a nice and caring and accessible human being in this very competent, efficient, and busy doctor. thank you Dr Silkiss!
Took our 2 year old in to evaluate her eyelid.Dr. Silkiss told her not to scream because her ears hurt? (She was 2!)When it came time to evaluate, she didn't even come close to my daughter, she looked from her chair and said almost indifferently "I don't see anything in her eye." We paid $200 for the visit, didn't even get checked, and baby's eye still in pain.Dr. Silkiss, an ophthalmologist saw her a few days later and removed an eye lash growing inwardly. You should have seen that! Heartless!!
Excellent doctor. Highly recommend she and her staff
I have never had a worse experience with a Dr.!!! My consultation was scheduled weeks in advance; yet I waited almost 2 hours to see this lady. She came in, no explanation for my wait, asked why I was there, pulled down on my eyelid and said I needed surgery. There was no explanation about the procedure or clarification if both eyes needed to be done. I asked for examples of the procedure and was told to check on line (this would be generic photos - not her work). Very rude. Only 15 min.
After 2 months of wait, I had a 5 pm appointment at her WC office on Friday Sept 1st. They charged my credit card $225 upfront fee. I waited until 6:30 in the waiting room before I was admitted and only to be seen by two others who did unrelated eye exams and recorded everything wrong in the computer as I was watching them type. I left at 6:40 still not seen by her. I have not received an email or call explaining this very unprofessional treatment or refund of my fee. Very disappointing.
Dr Silkiss is the best, my eyelids look great, virtually no scarring 4 months later. Her professionalism, expertise, and artistry are unparalleled.
Thoughtful and extremely smart. Beautiful surgery!
Great doctor, Great staff. I would recommend without hesitation to family and friends.
Dr. Silkiss is very expert. I haven't meet another specialist as skilled and knowledgeable. She was recommended to me years ago by another extraordinary eye doctor. A family member sees her also.
Thanks to Dr. Silkiss, I look FANTASTIC. I look 10 years younger and thinner not to mention what this surgery has done for my self esteem and confidence. I have received numerous compliments. Dr. Silkiss, Debra, and staff were very attentive, patiently answered my questions and eased my pre-surgery anxieties Overall, they were great!!! Can't recommend them highly enough.
Very impatient to me she look very stress an over well with work.
Dr. Silkiss goes out of her way to take care of her patients and make sure the family is well informed and comfortable with the treatment they are receiving! She goes above and beyond to make sure we are comfortable and understand what's going on. We are so lucky to have found her and are thankful for her dedication and skill.
My particular condition has been hard to treat and is accompanied by several complicating issues. I got a referral to Dr Silkiss and am so delighted with the outcome. She is intelligent, compassionate, and enormously skilled.
Dr. Silkiss is amazing! She is brilliant, caring and a talented,artistic surgeon. She always has her patients well being as her priority. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants the absolute BEST oculoplastic surgeon!
I had been under the care of an opthalmologist for extreme dry eyes for over 15 yrs. I had used Restasis and eye drops which did not help. I was very miserable with pain as soon as I opened my eyes and could not watch TV or read books. My primary care MD, Dr. Mary Sears sent me to Dr. Silkiss and assured me that she is the best for dry eyes. Dr Silkiss put plugs in my tear ducts and it was like magic... pain gone and my eyes are producing tears again. Dr. Silkiss is a wonderful and compassionate physician. She changed the quality of my life and I highly recommend her. I owe her a great deal. Thank you Dr. Silkiss.
