UPDATE now that I have had my first appointment – Dr. Silvers. Deanna, Lilac and everyone at this office should be the example everyone sees in the encyclopedia about how to run a medical practice – BRAVO Dr. Silvers spent over an hour with me, explained his thoughts on a care plan but made sure he included my other care professional so they could work together. Within two hours, he had spoken to my other doctor, collaborated on a care plan, the PA called me to explain and make sure I was comfortable, I had the new prescriptions within 2 hours and one of the best things delivered was knowing I am in great hands for care. HIGHLY RECOMMEND 100 stars Gardens Neurology
ORIGINAL 10 stars for the staff if I could – I have not even had my first appointment and the staff is treating me like I am their only concern. They have communicated at every turn, provided documents to me and stayed on phone to ensure I had them, then made sure I knew they were received and I was comfortable going into my first appointment – Perfect experience – Highly recommend – Melissa Le’ppin
