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.
Dr. Silk is an EXCELLENT doctor and we would switch practices should he ever leave in order to stay with him. We have had him for over 9 years and couldn't be more happier with him as our 3 children's pediatrician.
A very good experience!
Dr. Silk was the first pediatrician to take the time to really explain things differently about my son's ADD medication. He was able to explain a differing opinion on the regimen and spent a lot of time asking/answering questions! We will definitely be requesting to Dr. Silk in the future! Thank you so much for your time!
we always have a good experience at our doctors office
Dr. Silk has been my daughters provider since she was a newborn ; I have recommended him to family. He is a very good Doctor and displays patience , he's not in a rush like some doctors and has no problems answering questions from myself or husband.
Excellent visit. Provider explained everything thoroughly
Dr. Silk is an excellent doctor. Very patient, and thorough. He's wonderful!
Dr Slik is wonderful! He answers every question we have thoroughly and makes sure we understand.
Dr. Silk is a wonderful doctor, I always prefer him when my sons regular doctor isn't available
Dr. Silk is fantastic. He took the time to show my daughter the instruments he was using and she became comfortable with him. His "bedside manner" is that of a caring, knowledgeable yet down to earth professional. He talks to parents as if they are equals. I wish all doctors could be this great!
We had a great experience both the doctor and nurse were fantastic.
very positive and making it a fun experience for our son.
we love the care we receive at Bellvue Peds. Dr Silk and Joyce are awesome. Dr Silk is always very attentive and concerned. Joyce is extremely knowledgeable and a TRUE asset to the office. we are very comfortable with both.
Very pleased with Dr. Silk.... i would see him again.
very thorough review of daughters condition
We love Dr. Silk. He has a great way of explaining things so that I can understand. We've been seeing him since our son was a baby and we're thrilled when he was the one to see our newborn in the hospital. He set us up on a great schedule of Eat, Play, Sleep. the other pediatricians that visited us were quick to pop in and out, he spent time with us and it was very much appreciated - especially seeing as it was over the weekend. I would highly recommend Dr. Silk.
Very good experience as always ! Appreciate Dr. Silk and his attention to my childrens needs.
Dr. Silk is very good. He explains in the way the kids understand. He hits the right target with his easy words.
Dr. Silk has always treated my children and me with respect and has been available to answer any questions or concerns I have had.
amazing dr only one that I will bring my children to
Dr Silk has been seeing 2 of my three children since birth I refuse to see anyone else he is wonderful and I recommend him to everyoe
Dr. Silk always does an excellent job of listening to our concerns regarding our son and explaining treatment options throughly. My children are very comfortable with him and we trust his decisions.
Dr. Silk provides outstanding care for our child. He never seems rushed and is willing to spend time answering all our questions thoroughly and in a very understandable way. We are very happy with our choice to see him and will continue to do so.
Dr. Silk always goes the extra mile to make sure we understand what is going on with our child. He always looks at the bigger picture, and advises on the side of caution, which I very much appreciate. My daughter loves him and feels very comfortable with him, which is very important to us.
Dr. Silk is amazing. We will go to him for everything from now on.
Dr. Silk was very informative. He went above and beyond with digging further into my child's condition
Very informative, and always has little bits of information and "tricks" that are very helpful and make some situations easier to work through.
Dr. Silk is the best at what he does-and he does an awesome job at caring for children. He has helped me to raise and take the best care for my child. Today she is a happy,healthy 7yr old and I have him to thank because he is alwaya there when we need him! He is the best there is!
I always try to make appointments with Dr. Silk. He takes the time necessary to treat my children and always provides great care and information.
