Dear Dr. Silverstein,
I would like to commend the excellence and outstanding professionalism of Carmelo Ortega. He is the “BEST OF THE BEST”, when it comes to ear treatment excellence. I have been treated by him for years and he is a Premier individual who knows his ears and the required treatment. I trust him 100%.
In addition, I would like to commend, the best Appointment maker, best counter person, best front desk person in any medical office visit, and I visit about a dozen different doctors, unfortunately. I refer specifically to “Tammy”, who is great at her job. She does not miss a beat.

I cannot begin to thank you for all your care, expertise and helping me to live my life without Meniere’s Disease. I spent three and a half years with Meniere’s, and then thankfully I head about you and in 3 months time you cured my Meniere’s. Life is so good, and my husband and family feel blessed to have met you! My balance is good, hearing loss to right ear is present, which I expected, no more nausea, vomiting, vertigo, etc. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are my hero!

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in April of 2012, several hundred people gathered to enjoy the music of Dr. Herbert Silverstein, performed by several of Herb’s friends who happen to be some of Florida’s finest jazz musicians. The setting was an open ballroom at the Longboat Key Club overlooking the bay, and the music flowed through that room like a melodic tide. You’ll enjoy these wonderful jazz compositions from this gifted composer, played by skilled musicians and hosted by legendary jazz radio announcer, Bob Seymour.
