Edmund is my husband's first name but we call him by his middle name, Barry. Barry asked me to write since I joined Dr. Silverman's new team first. It was almost six months before Barry decided it was a good idea to join me. And a good idea it was because it wasn't long after joining that my husband was diagnosed with a grade 4 mitral valve leak and had to be admitted for open heart surgery. It was Dr. Silverman who gave us both the information and advice we needed to feel confident in the choice of doctors and hospital. It was Dr. Silverman who was at the hospital every day acting as our advocate helping us both through that difficult time. After discharge he came to our home and gave us the encouragement we needed to get through the therapy. Dr. Silverman has been our primary care physician since 2001. He is our doctor but we also consider him a friend.
