What Our Patients Are Saying

Talking about Charles Silvera, M.D.

"Dr. Silvera was extremely thorough and caring. He took the time to research one of the few medications to which I would not be allergic . He then spoke with the insurance company to get this medicine approved. I had been to others doctors, none of whom resolved my issue nor took the time to figure it out . Marilyn W"
