In order to support the excellent standard of care provided by our team, Dr. Silberstein has established and runs the continuing education program for our General Practice. This ongoing training and education allows us to offer cutting edge diagnostic and treatment options.
When she is not here at the hospital, Dr Silberstein enjoys spending time with her husband Brad and her two children Lily and Brady. Their home enjoys a constant stampede of furry friends in need.
