Dr. Silverstein is excellent!
my son was there for is 4 yr checkup and shots. the appointment went as expected. the doctor was nice and the nurse giving the shots was nice too.
The doctor is wonderful with my child and makes him comfortable during visit. I trust his opinion.
He is nice but talked down to us. He also did not wash his hands upon entering or exiting the room. He did a rectal exam on my daughter and I think that not washing his hands and touching other children and doorknobs is obviously not sanitary.
great bed side manner and really good with kids
we loved Dr. S - we scheduled our next appt with him as well!
Dr. Silverstein went above and beyond explaining and answering my son's questions and concerns. He was extremely patient and compassionate towards my son with special needs.

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Dr. Silverstein. He always provides good information to them based on their personal interests, such as a name of a book to read or even an event to go to see. He has a way of connecting with "teens" which is much appreciated!!!

very friendly! Dr Silverstein put my girls at ease
Excellent-always takes more than adequate time with the children discussing their health.
Dr. Silverstein is an excellent caring pediatrician
Provider seems to speak at the pt/ family and have a programed speech. Time for parents to discuss issues are rushed, dismissed and forgotten.
the dr and staff in the bethel park office are always the best

We love this office and have recommended it to many people
the Dr was wonderful with my daughter. he reminded me of my Pediatrician as a child. my daughter is very shy towards strangers and he was WONDERFUL about that and my daughter very much cared for him. we will be returning to this practice and this Dr.
Doctor S. is very nice patient and caring
We have utilized this practice for nearly 20 years for both of my children and the care provided by Dr. Silverstein and Dr. Park has always been exceptional.
He is a good doctor. You can tell he is very knowledgeable and has been working with children and their parents for a long time. I understand that some parents may need to be spoken to at a second grade level, but I don't always appreciate being spoken to that way. I am knowledgeable about my son and his health and I would like to be treated as a competent adult/parent. Otherwise, we like the office and will continue to follow with CCP for our child's care.
very good visit. we like dr. silverstein. very thorough.
We hadn't seen Dr. Silverstein in a very long time. He was very helpful and made sure to catch up on what had been going on with my son. He always has a great bed-side manner.
Dr. Silverstein is a great provider and always takes a good deal of time to listen to me. He is also very good with the children.
Dr. Silverstein is awesome and has a wealth of knowledge and years of practice to appreciate!
Dr. Silverstein is fantastic.
They were able to get me a last minute appointment when my daughter really needed to be seen. Dr. Silverstein was great at explaining everything and making my daughter comfortable.
Dr. Silverstein was incredibly gentle and easy with my son. I think his calm voice and simple explanations of what he was doing put my son at ease. Typically, this doctor's way of speaking annoys me and is overdone and too 'baby-like' but I really appreciated his demeanor in this appointment.
Dr. Silverstein is great! Thorough and takes enough time at every visit.
dr. Silverstein is an excellent doctor. Both my children are very comfortable with him and He is very thorough and a very pleasant person all around.
We always recommend this office!
I want to start by saying we really like the office and staff that we have dealt with over the year we have been a patient here. The problem and frustration that I am having is that for a 3:15 well check appointment, we didn't leave the office until after 5:00 p.m.! You are told to show up fifteen minutes before your scheduled appointment time, which we did. I was there at 3:00 p.m. and spent two hours with a crying one year old who wanted to get down and play on the floor. Several families were taken a head of us, which I understand were likely taken by other doctors...which is fine. No one apologized for the delay, offered any help or toys to occupy my child when the ones I brought became boring, or a simple phone call before my appointment to tell me they were running behind and to plan accordingly. I had to take off the afternoon from my job to make the appointment only to sit there without being seen for over an hour. That was unacceptable. Surely the staff would understand that a one year old, now having been seated for two hours is not going to be happy BEFORE getting vaccines and blood draws. That is making it hard not only on the child be still and settle down, but the parent and the nurses having to administer them. As I said, I really like my son's doctor but I am discouraged to have had this lengthy experience for a second time for a well check appointment. Should this happen again, I will give consideration to switching providers simply to ensure that my time isn't wasted as it has been.
Excellent doctor. Always makes my children feel at ease, always pleasantly surprised when Dr. Silverstein comes into the exam room and we look forward to seeing him.
This provider talked to my 14-year-old & I like we were discussing a little boy. My son corrected him when he mispronounced his name & although the provider acknowledged the comment he continued to use the same incorrect name. It would be nice if he acted like he was listening to my son.
Dr Silverstein spent a lot of time with us and I really appreciate him being so thorough!!!
we always request Dr. Silverstein because he is so patient and kind and thorough. We are very grateful for him.
We love Children's Community Pediatrics of Waterdam - nothing but great care!
the provider is great with toddlers.
We love Dr. Silverstein! Very thorough exam. and answered my questions without feeling rushed. Very pleasant and good with my infant! Office staff is also always very pleasant, willing to help and efficient.
Dr. Silverstein has a phenomenal "bedside" manner with his patients. He makes jokes and has a way to talk to them that calms them down.
He is patient and explains things to both the adult and the child in a way that is easy to understand.
Dr. Silverstein is great with little kids! He talks to them using a calm voice, which helps assure them that everything will be ok. He really knows how to interact with children.
the wait between nurse and doctor was very long but the care received was excellent
The doctor was very through and I was very relieved about this.
I really like the way that Dr. Silverstein interacts with my children. He is engaging and friendly.
Every thing was great
dr Silverstein is caring and kind. he is able to talk to mom in a grown up non medical way and also explain it all to my son. he's the best.
Dr. Silverstein, and all of the other doctors and nurses at the Bethel Park office, have always met and exceeded our expectations during every visit. This was our first walk-in sick visit and I was amazed at how quickly we were seen.
Dr. Silverstein is the best! Very thorough and explains things very well.
had I known this doctor was the walk in doctor I would not have come in. every time I have taken a child to him he does nothing to help all he does is talk talk talk. he never treats anything. I end up leaving and coming back a few days later to have another doctor treat my child. he has nothing to offer and is a waste of a co pay
