We had cataract surgery done last week; our dog was seeing immediately after surgery. There was also quite a discount here compared to other veterinarian ophthalmologists we called. Dr. Silverman is an excellent veterinary ophthalmologist — our veterinarian let us know after a full residency, he has been practicing in Sherman Oaks for over ten years. In fact, our veterinarian and all the other veterinarians at the hospital we go to refer only to Dr. Silverman; he is considered the best. He is kind, thorough and spent a great deal of time with us explaining the surgery, the care needed and the costs involved, including the amount taken off the price. We were very impressed. The fact that Complete Animal Eyecare is so close was also a plus — we didn’t want to drive far away. Our surgery was done in one day; and we also received a month of free rechecks. This is the kind of real service we used to see before corporate America took over a lot of the veterinary world. There is nothing cold or antiseptic here. Just good care.

Excellent place! Our dog Chase had cataract surgery today. I was glad that everything came out so beautifully. Dr. Silverman explained everything very well before the actual surgery. Our whole family really liked this doctor. He cares about the animals he works with. We even got a month of free rechecks with the surgery. Sherman Oaks is a close location for us. We dropped Chase off this morning and picked him up this afternoon. In the morning Chase wasn’t able to see at all. Now he is actually seeing. We would highly recommend Complete Animal Eyecare Center.

Great hospital. Our cat suddenly had a closed eye and looked like she was in pain. Our vet recommended Veterinary Ophthalmologist Dr. Silverman. It turned out to be a herpes virus — I had no idea an animal could get that or that it could be an eye infection. If left untreated it could have led to serious damage to her eye. It also could have spread to our other cats. The doctor prescribed medicine that did put us on a regiment (several medicines to put in several times a day) but it saved her vision. The staff was here very nice. The doctor took plenty of time to explain to us what was going on.

I just brought my dog Bear home from Complete Animal Eye Care. He had a very large tumor on his eyelid. Dr. Silverman safely removed it with a laser, which meant Bear wouldn’t need to be in an e-collar for the next 3 weeks. The front desk staff was very helpful and would send me text updates on how he was doing during the day which helped settle my nerves. I am very happy with my experience and would recommend this office to my friends and family.

Our dog had cataracts in both eyes and was quickly losing sight to the point where she was walking into walls. The costs involved for this surgery seemed outlandish at places we went to further away. Then our vet told us about Dr. Silverman and Complete Animal Eyecare in Sherman Oaks. We came here to find a great staff and a very nice, talented doctor. AND we were surprised to find the amount charged was a great deal lower than where we had taken our dog for an estimate before. About half the price. We decided to have the surgery done at Complete Animal Eyecare — it went beautifully. By the time we got home, our dog’s sight had been completely restored. We would give thanks and score a high recommendation for Dr. Silverman and Complete Animal Eyecare.

I brought my dog into see Dr. Silverman — it was a very complicated case. He discovered the problem quickly and with great expertise. I was very impressed. His prices were excellent compared to the other Veterinary Opthalmologist I had previously seen. I wish I had read the reviews and gone here first. I would have saved a lot of money. Dr. Silverman has gone through a complete residency and is definitely an excellent Veterinary Opthalmologist. My vet recommended him as the best in Los Angeles. Dr. Silverman was gentle, caring, and highly skilled. We would definitely recommend Dr. Silverman and Complete Animal Eyecare Center.

My veterinarian sent me here immediately when I brought my dog in to him. My vet thought my dog had a corneal ulcer. I got into see the Veterinary Ophthalmogist quickly on my vet’s recommendation. I was glad I got in right away. It was an ulcer on the eye. My dog was in a lot of pain. Dr. Silverman was kind, compassionate and explained things very well. The staff was also very good. I was able to watch the exam on a television screen so I could follow along exactly with what the doctor was explaining to me. My dog is now out of pain, has vision back and is seeing beautifully. This place is excellent! I wouldn’t say that about a lot of facilities I’ve been to.

My German Shepherd got in a bad dog fight – my vet sent me to Dr. Silverman right away. His eye had ruptured. I was scared to death. Dr. Silverman was calm and had a great bedside manner. Rufus needed surgery but Dr. Silverman kept me calm and luckily Rufus was able to keep the eye thanks to the skill of this specialist. I am very grateful.

Our cat had a herpes virus and the treatment prescribed worked perfectly. We followed what Dr. Silverman prescribed and our cat healed quite quickly. It was also a lot less expensive than we thought. Our cat was handled carefully and the skill of the doctor was apparent. If any of our other cats develop herpes in the eye we would not hesitate to return.
