Dr Silver is fantastic. never a problem or concern with my care.
Oct 30, 2019
always easy to get in on time.

enjoy Patricia. she is a jewel.
Oct 30, 2019
I do recommend Dr Silver to others when asked about my primary care physician.
Oct 24, 2019
These answers apply to my primary physician.
Oct 21, 2019
both staff were preoccupied on the phone, and hardly made eye contact, didn't put anyone on hold. I was on time but was left sitting without being checked in for 15 minutes, which essentially made me "late," for my appointment. That was unusual. There was no one else in the reception room but me.
Oct 21, 2019
Dr. Silver was very concerned about my having taken myself off statins for a few weeks, due to the doubled dose having affected my memory/recall. When he came in with my labs he was cordial as usual, but sat me down next to him and started drawing exclamation points next to my awful lab values; Cholesterol/total, HDL, LDL VLDL etc. He of course recommended I get back on the statins and suggested I speak to my cardiologist about this. I thought about it for a day, and the next morning went back on the dose I had been on, 40 mg Crestor. He is always very professional, but I could tell he was very concerned. I am too, as I hadn't seen how bad my levels could get withhout the dosage I was on. I didn't feel the need to discuss this with my cardiologist. I also realized there was a lot more I could do with my diet while on the statin, to get my numbers now, rather than relying on the statin alone. I have a good diet, and practiced nutrition as part of my chiropractic practice; so reading and understanding labs, genetics etc. was part of my practice. I'll give a call and let him know, I'm back on the meds.
Oct 21, 2019
The nurse came to my room fairly promptly and after she left, Dr. Silver was right there.
Oct 21, 2019
The nurses are great.
Oct 16, 2019
everyone was great and in a good mood and decorating for Halloween
Oct 14, 2019
Dr Silver noticed some redness up my nose and prescribed an antihistamine. I forgot to ask how long I need to take it, or if it was till the next appt. I may need to call to check.
Oct 12, 2019
always a good experience in this office
Oct 12, 2019
Dr. Silver is great
Oct 10, 2019
the secretary was extremely helpful and kind
Oct 10, 2019
Patricia was amazing. she made the experience
Oct 10, 2019
The person I talked to when making the appointment said to cancel the appointment I had on the 24th for labs and just do it together at this appointment. Apparently they didn't tell the back office about the change. Felt a little rushed through the appointment.
Oct 9, 2019
great experience
Oct 9, 2019
nurse was incredible - as always
Oct 3, 2019
she was very helpful

excellent staff and attention.
Oct 3, 2019
Staff is very attentive and easy to communicate with.
Oct 3, 2019
Dr Silver was very attentive. However he said he was referring me to Hematologist due to now being able to evaluate/treat my condition. My question would be, why wasn't I sent to a Hematologist in the first place and not to D.O. Just curious.
Oct 3, 2019
Nurse was very attentive and easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable.
Oct 3, 2019

Sep 12, 2019
staff has been very kind and patient with me directly, but I did over hear them speaking impatiently about someone on hold (phone).
Sep 12, 2019
at first he came across as unconcerned but listened and provided excellent care in all matters. would highly recommend!
Sep 12, 2019
appointments have always been on time with no delays!
Sep 12, 2019
the staff was very compassionate knowing that I had just lost my mom. I felt they went out of their way to be kind.
Sep 12, 2019
overall feel very confident that my health care needs will be met with integrity and professionalism.
Sep 8, 2019
This was a pre-op appointment - Had all my faith in *Dr. Silver to give me honest answers. I have A-fib. & worry it would act up, felt good after our talk!
Sep 8, 2019
I've always been more than satisfied.
Sep 2, 2019

Sep 2, 2019
I neglected to mention a prior problem to the doctor. It had to do with some discomfort in my lower right abdomen. It is still there. It never came up in our conversation. Otherwise it was a good experience.

great conversation with dr. silver.
Aug 29, 2019
dr's office called me in morning to come in @ 2p to review lab work done previous day that was ordered by another MD.; seems there was a abnormal value. turned out not too be of great concern, but nonetheless needed to be reviewed with me to determine an immediate further follow up if needed.
Aug 29, 2019
Dr Randy Silver has always been respectful of my wants & needs, attentive to explaining courses of care & lab work performed.
Aug 29, 2019
I'm very impressed thank you

Aug 26, 2019
everything very smooth and efficient
Aug 23, 2019
Went pretty well for a Dr's office
Aug 23, 2019
I do not think there were any delays other than the few minutes that is reasonable to expect.
Aug 23, 2019
Frankly if ID are smaller than sandwich boards I did not notice them, fairly sure Dr washed hands, wasn't watching so not sure about BP and Temp assistant
Aug 22, 2019
ALL personnel friendly, courteous, & very good at their jobs
Aug 22, 2019
Dr. Silver is very caring, provides positive feedback and encouragement with my weight loss and making more positive changes in my diet.
Aug 22, 2019
the nurses assistant is excellent
Aug 22, 2019
Overall a very professional and people friendly office.
Aug 22, 2019
he didn't explain well the condition of the patient or discuss it well base on patient's understanding
Aug 13, 2019
Everybody was polite and organized
Aug 13, 2019
I was very satisfied with the appointment with my Doctor.
Aug 13, 2019
Did not have any delays. The duration of my appointment was adequate.
Aug 13, 2019
Very Interested and courteous
Aug 13, 2019
The whole appointment from beginning to end was more than satisfactory and reassuring.
Aug 13, 2019
Everybody appeared to follow all protocols.
Aug 12, 2019
I don't recall seeing any hand washing or ID's, but it didn't matter for this appointment.
Aug 12, 2019
Provider physician recommended, but lousy billing with delays of many months cause problem in using MD services.
Aug 12, 2019
Reception desk was loud about money owed. It was all a mix-up with your Billing Department long delay! between dr. office service & billing client. I had written sent copies of cancelled checks & rather than replying by mail, it held up dr. service.
Aug 12, 2019

One of the recommendation details I only saw in the write up later but that might have been because we got off track talking about a symptom I had.
Jul 31, 2019
As usual things happen at the scheduled time.
Jul 31, 2019
Got busy at the end when left and didn't tell me I could go so I sat there for a while wondering what was up.
Jul 30, 2019
All aspects of my visit were positive.
Jul 28, 2019
My wait in the waiting room is generally very short.
Jul 21, 2019
always a great professional appointment at FCPP
Jul 21, 2019
Dr Silver has always been prompt-professional-caring and explained problems and procedures at a level I could understand.
Jul 21, 2019
always professional and courteous
Jul 19, 2019
Dr. Silver's assistant, Courtney has a great personality. She makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. It's all about personality and being a people person that keeps me from switching doctors. Dr. Silver is very thorough as is Courtney.
Jul 17, 2019
This was my annual Medicare physical. *Dr. Silver asked me specifically about ongoing problems and took the time to listen to my responses. *Dr. Silver is very respectful of me and concerned & interested in my comments.
Jul 17, 2019
This doctor and his staff are, by far, the best I have experienced in a long, long time. They are interested in me. They pay attention to me. They have my welfare as goal one. I regularly recommend *Dr. Silver without hesitation.
Jul 15, 2019
Web portal is awkward and requires me to remember a password. I use it very little.
Jul 15, 2019
I questioned whether my low red/white blood cell counts might be due to delayed evaluation by lab test technician (an issue raised by my previous GP), but *Dr. Silver discounted this. I would have preferred authorization of another cell count test, with prompt analysis. We'll see what results from exam by hematologist.
Jul 15, 2019
No one informed me of delays because there were none. 2. No delays.
Jul 10, 2019
good experience. the Doctor Silver was great.

I'VE NEVER HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE AT THIS PRACTICE
Jun 11, 2019
Everyone appears to be conscientious and well-trained everyone usually has a positive, helpful attitude.
Jun 11, 2019
*Dr. Silver showed concern after my PSA, was aware that it was time to check it again and we detected a rise in the PSA so we feel like you're "ON TOP" of this situation.
Jun 9, 2019
This was an anomaly that I had to wait so long to check in. It's usually quick.
Jun 9, 2019
i did not pay attention to how well staff protected my safety, but there is no " i don't know" button to choose from
Jun 8, 2019
Staff was very helpful, informative, professional, courteous and patient.

I have fairly high confidence in Dr Silver's evaluation of my physical examination results. However, I felt that the overall examination was rushed and did not allow for a reasonable discussion of the issues that were raised and my observations about them. I think that Dr Silver was overly quick to refer me to specialists without delving more deeply into the issues himself. I understand the need to remain within the scheduled vit ttoime, but I left the office feeling unsatisfied with the overall visit. My last PCP in Oregon was much more thorough and allowed me much more time to express my concerns and feelings. I will be considering changing providers in the future.
May 22, 2019
Your staff person acted like they had a grudge for my arriving early and upsetting their personal cell phone call
May 17, 2019
he didn't explain well the condition and not discussed well the condition/diagnosis of the patient
May 15, 2019
My appointment was very early in the AM, and everything went like clock work - Very good - I feel most doctors tend to prescribe medication as the first solution for most condition, and I prefer to find a natural remedy. I prefer to AVOID recommending that my friends or family see a particular doctor, and recommend that they look holistic remedies first.

May 14, 2019
was seen right away as scheduled
May 14, 2019
Every one was courteous and professional.
May 14, 2019
This was one of my better appointments. Everything went extremely well,
May 10, 2019
The "delays" were almost non existent when you consider a busy doctors office, there probably was no reason to inform me of any delay
May 9, 2019
Nurse assistants are very good and handle their responsibilities well.
May 9, 2019
Most of the staff are really excellent and professional and overall I like the clinic but the negatives I have spoken of make the experience extremely uncomfortable and I come away not feeling safe or having a solution to my health issue. When I spoke with Shea by phone later her concern was defending their care and saying they are doing the best they can and I told her I understand that but I am not being heard.
May 9, 2019
I have already stated prior that sensitivity to my needs and feeling cared for and respected as a person is a problem.
Apr 26, 2019
I did not have an answer to my issues as to manage them. hand outs,referrals, managment of 5 serius issues I need more information on 1. sputum, 2. arthritis, 3. urinating, 4. sodium levels, and thyroid levels.what to do now. russee

Apr 23, 2019

good followup and scheduling for next appointment and referral
Apr 17, 2019
Shay in the front office is very professional, courteous and very well informed on helping patients with patient portal. she is an assest to this office.
Apr 17, 2019
Dr. Randall Silver makes good analysis of patients situation. He is also very open to listening to patients questions or suggestions. Such an important quality for a caringDoctor.
Apr 17, 2019
Courtney , Dr Randall Silvers nurse attendant is on top of her job. makes patients comfortable and answers questions that she is knowledgeable of. excellent staff member.
Apr 16, 2019
This visit was for a physical, so *Dr. Silver took more time to listen to my concerns. He was also quick to get my meds ordered from Optum Rx.
Apr 10, 2019
The thing I didn't and don't like is that the doctor comes with an assistance who is typing during the visit. I come to see my doctor, the visit is only 5 minutes. The typing person is totally irrelevant to my health discussion, and she makes me feel uncomfortable like being in court and being recorder. Speaking of privacy, with the typing person, it felt compromised. I asked her to leave. Also, her grammar is not too great or she makes typos that makes it hard to understand what the doctor said. She refers to me in her notes as "she" and "he" in every record. I will give you below one excerpt in quotations. "patient to monitor blood pressure at home on a regular basis and getting good readings. He was just slightly elevatedat 142/78. I recommend she get a biceps automated blood pressure cuff and start monitoring. This. Then a low saltdiet work and daily aerobic activity." "patient admits to having his IV." The last statement I had to decipher. And I am "she" by the way.

Dr. Silver has helped me get my cholesterol levels down, and discovered a few months back that I had been prescribed too high a level of Synthroid by my previous physician, such that my pituitary function was being suppressed. This had additionally contributed to my anxiety levels. I believe that in a few months, my cholesterol. both VLDL, total cholesterol, and LDL will be below the high ranges they had been and within normal limits for the first time in years.
Apr 3, 2019
Virtually no wait time.
Apr 3, 2019
Just did recommend Dr. Silver to someone.
Apr 1, 2019
Dr. Silver seemed like he was in a hurry this visit. Usually he is very thoughtful in his discussions.
Mar 29, 2019
it was a good day, people were courteous, smiling, and in a good mood which always helps
Mar 28, 2019
Excellent Dr. and the staff is very professional.
Mar 28, 2019
Best Doctor I ever had.
Mar 28, 2019
He hadn't read my chart- he had no knowledge that I had seen him before for the same problem
Mar 28, 2019
I don't understand why Doctors don't read their patients charts. I find that disturbing - lowers my confidence in him
Mar 28, 2019
I guess 5 minute waits on the previous section, but it could have been more or less -- pretty quick
Mar 27, 2019
I always have a positive experience .
Mar 24, 2019
This is an excellent office. The staff is great. They are professional, nice and always great you with a warm welcome. Dr. Silver is an excellent physician. He takes his time and explains what is happening with you and answers any questions. Mr. Simon the PA is also excellent.
Mar 24, 2019
Always on time, I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see the Doctor. And registering happens right away and efficient and friendly
Mar 24, 2019
Friendly and respectful
Mar 20, 2019
very good
Mar 20, 2019
My medical history paperwork was not even in his hands, as it was still on a clipboard with me. He went through the entire appointment with no history other than asking me if I had any issues currently. When he asked about why I went off an anti-depressant and was using compounded hormones instead, I explained my concerns including other medical issues connected. His response was, it's safe so go ahead and take it. Having only a medication list to go off as a picture of me, he did not ask about my thyroid, he did not ask about my psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis, he simply blew through the appointment and moved on. He never asked about getting my medical records transferred to him, never asked if I had a yearly physical. To be honest, he gave me the impression that I mattered not at all. He and the nurse left, I had to go sit in the lobby to finish my medical history paperwork and the nurse brought me a slip to take to the front to make an appointment for 6 months. For what?! Nothing I brought to his attention or about me gave him any rise to show me care and concern, why does he need to see me again? So, he can get money from my insurance company? That is sincerely how I feel. I am forced into finding a new primary physician and my desire is to be treated by someone that views all of my issues as a whole and respects that taking pharmaceuticals isn't always my first choice or at least until we have discussed the pros and cons. To be clear, I was saddened by this encounter and feel rather hopeless about finding a physician that looks at the big picture, uses and respects Eastern and Western medicine, and makes a connection with the patient.

1 misunderstood the appt time and arrived 30 minutes late. They were able to get me in quickly anyway!
Mar 14, 2019
I was very concerned about my problem and they were very pleasant and helpful.
Mar 14, 2019
they were helpful in getting me in even though I was late!
Mar 14, 2019
she was pleasant and effective
Mar 14, 2019
I have occasionally had a few problems but this visit was excellent.
Mar 14, 2019
good experience
Mar 13, 2019
I came in to go over my labs with the doctor. They called me back a second time and said I needed to come back yet. The crap out of me because it made me think something was wrong. I tried to tell the receptionist that I had already seen the doctor for my labs but she said they wanted me back. When I got here I tried to tell the receptionist I shouldn't have to pay another copay because they called me back from for my original visit. She said I still had to pay the co-pay. I pay the co-pay went in to see the doctor and the doctor's nurse told me I didn't need to be there someone made a mistake. I drove 35 miles to come in today. I asked for a refund of my copay and I was told that they could not give me a refund. It was put towards a credit to my next visit. This was not very professional.
Mar 13, 2019
see previous comments.
Mar 9, 2019
Felt very welcome when I arrived
Mar 9, 2019
I seemed to have lacked credibility and reliability to the care provider regarding my efforts to monitor blood pressure at home and stores and for taking prescription sleeping aid.
Mar 9, 2019
My appointment was facilitated with pleasantries and timeliness
Mar 7, 2019
Dr Silver is in/out doesnt spend enough time listening and always referrs you out to specialist. I still have to see him so I hope this is anonymous
Mar 6, 2019
Dr. Silver shook my hand and that was the only courtesy he showed. He didn't even look at my ailment (cyst) because I said I was there for a referral. He didn't ask any questions and did not provide any insight.
Mar 6, 2019
The medical assistant never asked me why I was there. I also tried to spell out the medication I was on and I had to repeat myself multiple times. There was no small talk.
Mar 6, 2019
I had to go back because my paperwork was lost.
Mar 6, 2019
Wonderful experience. Doctor and staff respect me and listen to me. I would definitely recommed Dr Randall Silver to my friends, relatives.
Mar 6, 2019
A+ for Doctor Silver.
Mar 6, 2019
Again, wonderful experience. The office respects my time.
Mar 6, 2019
The office trains its nurses well in the art of relating to the patient.
Mar 5, 2019
All the way around, pretty efficient outfit!
Mar 5, 2019
Maybe getting early appointments help, but the last two visits I have been in, seen, and out in approximately 1/2. Very awesome!
Feb 27, 2019
Silver, very consientious
Feb 26, 2019
After waiting for 45 minutes in the waiting room after my appointment time my wife went to the desk to ask about the delay. Somebody apparently made a mistake with letting someone know I was there.
Feb 25, 2019
Dr Silver was very thorough in asking questions about how things were going and also in explaining treatment was recommending.
Feb 25, 2019
whether asking questions directly or via email-responses and response times very good
Feb 25, 2019
I keep coming back so I would definitely recommend FCPP to others
Feb 25, 2019
no complaints with staff-very friendly and helpful
Feb 22, 2019
The staff was all very friendly and ready to help me when I entered the office.
Feb 22, 2019
Everything was very efficient and speedy without making me feel hurried. I'm pretty sure they got me in to the exam room before my scheduled appointment time.
Feb 22, 2019
Very efficient but caring
Feb 22, 2019
always a good experience- tells me in plain words his evaluations-Silver is a keeper
Feb 22, 2019
very friendly
Feb 22, 2019
She is the greatest! Knows her business- prepared me for the Dr
Feb 22, 2019
yes I would recommend this staff to others because I'm treated by pros
Feb 22, 2019
you must be good because I have no issues
Feb 21, 2019
*Dr. Silver is NOTHING MORE THAN a referral source for other FCPP providers.
Feb 21, 2019
I am very happy with the service and attention to detail
Feb 21, 2019

Feb 17, 2019
Very happy w/all facets.
Feb 17, 2019
Put on hold for 10 minutes when calling back in about medication that was prescribed. The staff is polite, but appear hurried.
Feb 17, 2019
I like my doctor and his demeanor. He needs to slow down a little bit. He appears in a hurry occasionally

Great service all the way around!

Felt very educated after the visit.

Wonderful staff.

Extremely happy that Dr. Silver was able to squeeze me in within a 1/2 of my phone call to office. I had accidently cut myself and did not want to go to emergency room or urgent care. The staf, Shay and others were extremely helpful and kind.

Dr. Silver is excellent. I have had some problems which could have been awkward in discussing and facing. He has a manner which is direct, clear, non-condescending, focused, supportive when needed, suggestive when needed, constructive, not sugar-coated, firm, positive feedback when deserved, cautionary when needed. A very good fit for me at a life-critical time.

As stated above, *Dr. Silver is always rushed. He is never in the room with me for more than 3-5 min. this last time I came for a follow-up for chronic low back pain he sent me for an MRI but also told me surgery is the only option and it won't really help.

I've been to see *Dr. Silver approx. 10 times over the years. I always leave with the feeling him and his assistants are rushed and only want to spend the minimum tie possible with you.

I've been seeing *Dr. Silver for a few years. I basically see him to get referrals, as our HMO requires. I don't take his care seriously because he is so rushed he has never actually listened to me. But I need a primary for referrals so that is why I come back, simply a means to an end.

In the past couple months the staff has made 3 errors. 1. I was referred to the wrong physical therapy office in Nov. 2018. 2. I scheduled a physical and no lab work was ordered. 3. After the lab/blood work was supposed to have been ordered I went to get drawn at CCPC and the office hadn't sent the order over. Very annoying when fasting for a draw and they cannot draw b/c no order.

I always look forward to coming to this office.

Dr. Silver was almost condescending, and treated me as if my symptoms were nothing. When I asked him for a specific test, recommended by another doctor, he said he didn't know what that test is, and it probably wouldn't be helpful anyway.

I was told to get a blood test and xray before my next visit, but wasn't told where to get those done. When I asked the check-out receptionist where I was to go, and if they had paperwork for me to bring, she just said "they called it in". Where? Where am I supposed to go that they called these orders in to? I was also told that I would be given an inhaler, and it was even in the patient portal notes. But I was never given one or a prescription for one. I had to call back to ask about it, and they acted like they nothing was wrong, "Oh, I'll call it in now".

Doctor Silver was professional and quickly diagnosed my problem but hardly listened to my questions. Felt very rushed.
Feb 5, 2019
Experience was typical. Problem seemingly resolved. This office and Doctor seem very typical, nothing special.

Your survey is for the benefit of the Doctors so I question how confidential you keep patient information and opinions.
Feb 5, 2019
I am pleased with the support staff so far.
Feb 5, 2019
I am very pleased with the nursing staff.

ALL staff are pleasant, courteous, and professional

Dr. Silver is the BEST MD I have ever had. VERY caring, courteous, and professional. He takes the time to review all labs with you and the plan needed to improve glucose results. I am extremely pleased with Dr. silver and his staff.

Need to add N/A as a choice as no delays to be informed about

no interaction with assistant or nurse

too many questions about things I did not experience.
Jan 25, 2019
we are pursuing an appt with a Urologist to look more closely at the reason for a slightly elevated PSA, and I wasn't clear with the level of concern that should be accompanied by "slightly elevated" numbers, or what PSA numbers represent, is it chemical composition or size of prostate or what?.
Jan 22, 2019
Great, I called at 9:30 and they got me in by 10:00 the same day.
Jan 16, 2019
Appt ran about as smoothly as expected.
Jan 16, 2019
Dr. does go over lab results pretty well, gives me a copy
Jan 16, 2019
There was a delay, Dr. apologized, no reason given but who knows what needs he had to fill unexpectedly.
Jan 16, 2019
Portal transcription is slightly different than I remember things.

The person at check in is one of the nicest receptionists I've ever met. She is friendly and makes you feel welcome. She helps to set the tone for a good visit.
Jan 11, 2019
I felt like this was a waste of my time... It was a supposed physical. I have had physicals before that were very through and I felt like I was a number to be checked off... He discussed blood work that I had, had 4 months ago that he already went over with me previously.
Jan 11, 2019
Paperwork was ridiculous... Obviously Medicare is using this opportunity to collect information for research on seniors. Having to draw a face on a clock? And put the time? Word problems? A whole page dedicated to mental problems that would put someone that was having any mental problems into a depression. REALLY!!! Big brother is definitely getting his money's worth paying the doctors to collect this stuff...

No problems. It's almost always good.
Jan 2, 2019
Excellent experience.

It's very good the way our time is considered as important as their time. Keep up the good effort on your part to see me on time and I knew I will always be there on time. Thank you.
