Dr.Silver is wonderfull! Caring and informative giving me all of the information that I need to heal from my injury, love him!
Dr Silver has always displayed top notch bedside manner, the best that I have experienced with any doctor. Has always taken a conservative thoughtful approach which each of my three knee surgeries that he has done. Always explained the pros and cons of each procedure to achieve excellent outcomes.
Dr. Silver is rude. He doesn't care to hear what the patient is dealing with (cuts you off every time you speak). Does not listen to (or answer) your questions or concerns. Spends very little time with patient and is not thorough. He made me feel worse than when I came in. Honestly #1 worst experience with a Doctor. I suggest looking elsewhere for quality care.
Only cared about you being a surgical patient. If you didn’t need surgery he had not interest in helping. Don’t waste your time.
Once he didn’t see me as a surgical candidate he didn’t care that I couldn’t lift my arm. He completely dismissed me and had no interest in helping alleviate my pain that I subsequently battled for six years. Had he taken the time to determine the cause of my pain, it would have been remedied when it should have been. He also told me “you have a lot of arthritis in your neck, one day you will be hunched”. I have since had the most amazing doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery In NYC and feel tremendous gratitude for their knowledge and willingness to diagnose and help regardless of a surgical need.
Excellent Dr. Caring, takes time to answer questions, polite, sense of humor and explains things well. Cant imagine going to anyone else. Kinda rude to give anyone a one star and say nothing.
Had severely damaged right shoulder repaired 5 years ago. Dr. Silver was informative and friendly. He fixed my shoulder and it feels great. Highly recommended.
One of the best orthopedic surgeons in this area.
We were referred by our pediatrician when the “sprain” was something more. We became unlucky when Dr Silver was available to see my daughter. Never seemed terribly concerned that she went through a cast, treatments, surgery, a brace, and physical therapy with little improvement. Didn’t seem concerned about the teasing she received from kids at middle school, nor the fact that she was unable to play her sport or her musical instrument. Then after 9 months she was dismissed from care when nothing more could be done, adding a snarky remark that “At least the elbow isn’t frozen at full extension. She can still eat and brush her own hair.” Yes, that is a perfectly uplifting and positive remark to a young girl whose life changed and who to this day had a crooked arm that will never straighten.
I went to see George regarding my shoulder. He told me he could not help me. After a second opinion Ortho Albany was able to surgically fix the problem.
He may be the best surgeon in the world. In my case that remains to be seen. However, the post op care has been the worst. It seems as if he is unwilling to even put any thought into why the healing is not progressing as expected.
If you want to be treated like a commodity and not a person, this is the doctor for you.
Excellent surgeon, pleasant and informative. Scar is narrow than a great surgeon from Mt Sinai. who had done his other knee. The hospital was extremely attentive and through through many unexpected complications that had nothing to do with the surgeon. The pre surgical information was excellent at the hospital.
Dr. Silver was easy to talk to and explained things well.
Great surgeon. Replaced both my knees, the first being in 2009 and the second in 2010. I have not had any issue wiht them at all. I do a lot of walking, use my stationary bike daily, and my husband are members of the YMCA in Saratoga,where we workout in the gym and walk the track. He is truly the very best!!!
The phone call from his office with the results of my MRI was most unsettling and the person calling me was unable to answer many of my questions.
