Stephen Silver, M.D. has been practicing medicine since 1989. He attended medical school and internship in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and residency in Chicago, Illinois. Realizing the invaluable contribution of Eastern philosophy medicine, he then completed the basic and advanced courses in Acupuncture at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Doctor Silver advises his patients to be proactive about their healthcare; he recommends regular medical screenings, healthy diet, nutritional supplements and regular exercise. He believes that pharmaceutical medications certainly have their place in treating disease but should not be relied upon as a cure for years of unhealthy living.
