Dr. Silk is one of my favorite providers when it comes to the care of my children. He listens to what I say and discusses all information and ideas openly and thoroughly. I will request him as often as possible for the care of my children.
Dr Silk continually does an amazing job as the pediatrician for my 3 kids! Not only is he personable and easy to talk to, but his expertise is extremely helpful and much appreciated!

Dr. Silk takes time to teach about health issues that are of concern .
love the practice and the doctors but I had an appointment for 11:00 and was not called back to a room until 11:58. it was extremely frustrating to sit that long with my two children and nobody gave us a heads up or reason. The nurse apologized for the wait when she took us back but had just gotten there herself.
Dr. Silk is an amazing doctor. he always takes the time out to interact with my daughter and makes sure that all kf my questions and concerns are explained so i understand everything. i highly recommend him!

They were very helpful in all situations.
Dr Silk is a great doctor who relates to my son and makes me feel like he listens to and takes our concerns seriously
Dr. Silk was wonderful with our daughter. He took the extra effort to build rapport and play with her.
Love Dr. Silk! He was very patient - and made my scared daughter comfortable before starting the exam. She was hiding in the corner and the beginning and giggling by the end.
love how everyone talks to my child. This dialogue not only creates self advocating skill for my 7 year old, but more importantly; trust, respect and a fabulous rapport between doctor and child. Dr Silk is amazing at this skill.
everything was very well. Great Job
I had a good experience with dr silk and the nurse who administered the shots
Dr Silk had excellent rapport with both my daughter and me.

dr silk recommended a book for me to read specifically focusing on concerns I had for my son. he gave excellent advice on preparing my son for the baby I will be having next month.
Dr. Silk is the best. Always takes the time to answer my list of questions and gives real-life advice that is so helpful for a new mom. He goes above and beyond, and I'm so glad he is our pediatrician.
Dr.Silk was awesome.
Felt there should be more immediate concern for my son who was sitting in the waiting room gasping for air.
excellent care for my daughter! we love the doctors, nurses, and staff at CCP!
Dr Silk is wonderful. He always interacts with the child to make things as easy as possible. He takes the time to explain things in terms we can understand. Our schild always feels comfortable in his care.
we love Dr Silk and how great he is. he truly cares about my children and they know he will keep them safe. that is huge for a dr and patient
Dr. Silk was awesome!
I love doctor Silk! he goes above and beyond to not only take care of my daughter mentally physically and emotionally but he plays with her gets her laughing to make the overall visit more enjoyable. He's a wonderful doctor and our favorite treatment provider!
prolonged wait time of almost an hour. doctor thorough and attentive once present.
We love Dr. Silk! He is so great with our boys, and incredibly observant, even when we don't say anything at all. He is low intervention, which we appreciate greatly as well.
Dr.Silk is an amazing doctor. He is one in a million. He has cared for both my son and daughter. My son is 22 and daughter is 10. I would highly recommend him!
Dr spent a long time with us
the nurse and dr silk were fantastic. we went in as walk-ins in the morning and waited almost 1 1/1 hours. that is insane
This was our first visit to the practice and first visit with Dr. Silk. We just moved here from another part of the state. I thought that Dr. Silk had an amazing bedside manner. He worked well with our 9 month old and put us both at ease. He was friendly, knowledgable, and made the visit very pleasant. I liked that he taught me (a mother of five) some things I didn't know or didn't remember about how much formula my baby now should take, however he didn't instruct me in a condescending way. I appreciated his professional style and warm personality and I look forward to bringing my other four children to him soon.
Dr Silk was awesome. Super friendly with my son and very helpful helping me understand about needed done for my son. He also referenced that he had the same thing 3 and 4 years ago.
I don't mind the longer than usual wait to see our doctor because I know during visits when I have a lot of questions, he takes the time to thoroughly answer them all without making me feel rushed. When he is behind schedule, i know it is because he is doing the same for another concerned parent.
Dr. Silk was the best doctor we have had yet! I would give him the highest recommendation to any of my friends or family. He was very sweet to my son, trying to make him laugh and did a good check-up on him.
We love Dr. Silk and the entire staff. They do such a good job making our little guy comfortable.
This was my first visit to the doctor. Dr. Silk was very good in ensuring my son got comfortable with him from the beginning. Expecting our good experience to continue in future.
Dr. Silk is very knowledgeable about asthma. He is also very good with my teen daughter. Tough age to handle. He had us leaving with useful tips. Things she can do to help herself at seventeen to cope with her asthma better. He is very friendly, outgoing, and kind. We both enjoyed the visit and left satisfied.
we love dr. silk!
very helpful and easy to make quick follow up appointment.
We love Dr. Silk
overall excellent just a very long wait time to see the provider
Dr. Silk is fabulous! My children and I love having him as their doctor. He takes timewith them and talks and listens to us. He is very personable and makes them feel so comfortable, especially since a doctor's office can be an uncomfortable or scary place for children. We travel from Canonsburg because we didn't want to switch to a closer pediatrician after we moved. I would recommend Dr. Silk to everyone!
we love dr silk and all the staff.
I'm happy with my child's pediatrician. He provides well child care very well. My child also sees a psychiatrist for ADHD and orthopedist as needed.
Doctor seemed to want to push the hpv vaccine on my son even after I told him I would read the literature.
I've been seeing Dr. Silk since I was a baby. One of the best doctors in the office ! Hasn't changed a bit!
Excellent as always.
The Very Best Provider And My Child Just Adores Her Doctor As Much As We As Parents Do! Very Friendly, And Always So Very Helpful No Matter What The Visit Is For!He Also Is Very Informative And Precise When It Comes To What's Going On With Our Child!!
I was blown away by Dr. Silk's common sense advice for newborn care. He addressed all of my concerns and gave me advice and instructions in an easy to follow manner. I now feel like I have a solid game plan going forward with my daughter.
I am very pleased with Dr. Silk and the staff. My son has ASD so his visits to the Dr are very over whelming and stressful and they do a wonderful job at making sure that they see us in a timely manner and that they get us out ASAP.
As a nurse who has spend the majority of their career inside s hospital setting, I have had the unique opportunity to observe the evolution of many physicians. It is my opinion that those physicians destined for greatness are the ones with the innate ability to retain empathy despite years of rigorous medical training, long hours in a hospital tending to the needs of others and often forgoing their own. Dr. Silk is the embodiment of these qualities. I'd like to thank him for understanding me as a individual with fears, questions and in need of guidance. Also, I'd like to thank him for his time and patience, even when I know it may have been at a personal cost. As a patient I appreciate you and as a colleague I respect you.
Dr Silk is awesome. Great rapport with my child.
Very patient with my son. The nurse particularly - since my son was very upset by the shots.
Dr silk was very kind to my child. He spoke to him with respect and at an age appropriate level. He addressed my child's questions and concerns with kindness and respect. He was very informative to myself and husband and answered all questions thoroughly. He spent much time at the bedside and did not make us feel rushed or "squeezed in." I typically schedule appointments with whatever Doctor is availi me however I will request Dr Silk in the future. The nurse who initially helped was also polite, kind and efficient.
Doctor was very friendly and showed that he really cared for my newborn. All of my concerns were answered and I did not feel rushed at all.
Overall, we are very happy with Dr. Silk and his staff, including the nurse and receptionist.
Dr. Silk took a great deal of time to answer my questions, and I was grateful for his feedback and attention to detail. He also talked to my daughter and made her feel at ease.
