Very pleased with Dr. Silverboard, 12/01/2011

Dr. Silverboard is straightforward, expert and caring towards my young daughter (his patient) and does not tend towards over-diagnosis or over-medicating which I appreciate. He took the time to... carefully listen to exact circumstances and consider family history. He worked her in the same day for an EEG when my daughter needed to have this test. I found his staff to be very polite and especially kind to my toddler. He always calls her "gorgeous" every time he has seen her and is more than understanding when she is having a toddler meltdown. I highly recommend him.

Disappointed, 5/22/2011

DISAPPOINTED Truth be told, I would not recommend this provider (Neurologist) to friends, family or colleagues. It's really scary that a neurologist would prescribe anti-seizure medication without... definitely waiting for the preliminary EEG and MRI results to r/o seizures. In the meantime, no bother to contact the parents to discontinue administering the anti-seizure med to their prescious child. Fortunately, we never admininstered the medication because of a parental gut feeling. Shame on you and guys! Be careful. How can you sleep at night knowing this? I too am a Healthcare Provider. This experience has taught me to listen to my patients. Remember the Oath we took.

Hesitate

Dr. Silverboard's manner is harsh, insensitive. He was too quick to write a prescription for meds WITHOUT running diagnostic test. My child suffered for several more months with severe headaches because of his inability to do his job. I would NEVER use this doctor again and would NOT recommend.

Didn't feel informed

We went to Dr. Silverboard for my daughter who has a diagnosed neurological problem. We were hoping he would give us information regarding her condition, ways to help, what warning signs to look for, etc. Unfortunately, we came away with no more information than we entered with. I am positive that he understands her condition, but as a parent, I need a doctor who can help ME understand what is going on with my child.

stone cold as ice

I brought my daughter in to see Dr Silverboard in 2005 because she was having developmental delays. Our first visit with Dr Silverboard consisted of him drilling us with questions. Didn't give us any time to ask any ourselves. He then had a series of tests on our daughter and never followed up with us. We had to call his office and his medical assistant told us the result over the phone. "everything is fine, no abnormalities". After paying for a second visit, he then drilled us again and never gave us an opportunity to ask questions and just told us to bring her back after she turned 3. Not! We are seeing another dr in that office.

SO NICE!

Dr. Silverboard was so pleasant when I met with him. I know I was not the best patient at the time but he still gave me the respect and compassion I needed. It really did seem like I was important, not just another bed. His care really did make a difference and I will be sure to call him in the future! Thanks!

wouldn't be my first choice

I saw this doctor while I was in the hospital for atrial fibrillation. Guess he was the neurologist (I was also dealing with Meniere's issues at the time) on call. His bed-side manor is sorely lacking and he drilled me with one question after another, knowing full well they had just given me pain medication that was about to put me under. I will be looking elsewhere for a neurologist.
