Dr. Harris Silverman

BRADENTON – Harris Silverman, MD, founding partner of The Eye Associates, has once again been selected as one of “The Best Doctors in America” for 2014. The Best Doctors in America™ list is widely respected by medical professionals and patients alike as a definitive source of the nation’s most outstanding specialists.

The Eye Associates is especially proud to note that Dr. Silverman’s consummate medical experience, skill and insight has earned him this prestigious recognition for 20 consecutive years. “The fact that Dr. Silverman has been held in such high regard by his colleagues for 2 decades is extraordinary, and is a great source of pride for all of us who work with him,” commented John Swencki, CEO of The Eye Associates.

A truly unbiased database, The Best Doctor designation is earned only by those physicians who have been selected by consensus of their peers as the result of a nationwide survey. Physicians are included on the list based on the results of this extensive, confidential peer-review process, in which more than one million votes are cast for nominees believed to have superior clinical abilities.

At present, the Best Doctors in America™ database includes over 53,000 physicians representing more than 450 medical specialties and subspecialties. Doctors cannot pay to be included on the Best Doctors list or nominate themselves for consideration. For this reason, Best Doctors has the reputation of being a trusted referral source of the highest caliber. This year, the Best Doctors list is being excerpted in the March 2014 issue of Tampa Style Magazine.

Nine board certified ophthalmologists currently cover the specialties of Cataracts, Cornea, Glaucoma, Retina, Refractive Surgery and Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery. Six board certified optometrists provide routine eye care, eyeglasses, and contact lenses. The multi-specialty practice also has a board certified Dermatologist and a board certified Hearing Aid Specialist.
