I saw Dr. Silver about 2 months ago after being recommended to see him from a visit to the urgent care in kent about a fall and my knee hurting. When I saw him, he said if it wasn't better to call and get an mri which I did. The office never called me about receiving the results and I called about 3 weeks later. They said I had to make an appt. With the Dr. To get my results and so I went in last week. Dr. Silver spent about 5 min. With me and said my MRI showed I had arthritis and a cortisone shot would help which I received. I felt very rushed and had to ask questions as he was prepping me for the shot. After the visit I looked on the patient portal as saw that he said: "I had an in depth discussion with the patient regarding treatment options for arthritis and their relative risks and benefits. Treatments include anti inflammatory medications, physical therapy, weight loss, activity modification, use of assistive devices, injection therapies. We discussed that arthritis is often progressive over time, an in end stage arthritis surgical interventions can be considered, including arthroplasty. All questions were answered and the patient voiced their understanding. I will see him back as needed" This was copied and pasted from my chart. He never discussed any of this with me other that telling me that I had arthritis. I have spent more time at my vets office discussing my dogs problems than I had on Friday with Dr. Silver. And to make matters worse, he put in his notes that he talked to me at length about everything. I don't believe I will be seeing the Dr. In the future.
