Frequently Asked Questions
Are you taking new patients?
Dr Silver is currently taking new patients. Call 248-397-4664 or click on “Make Appointment Online” to schedule your visit.
How long is the wait for an appointment?
In most cases the wait for a new appointment is a week or less. Same-day visits may be available for acute illness.
Do you work with newborns?
Dr Silver is happy to have parents of newborns in to establish care and to do vaccine counseling and education, or to help with specific issues newborns have such as GERD or eczema, but he requires newborns to be under the additional care of a primary care pediatrician or midwife for their first three months of life.
Do you vaccinate?
While Dr Silver counsels many families on vaccine choices, he does not give vaccines in office.
Do you take kids that are not vaccinated?
Yes. Check out our Vaccines page for more info.
Do you work with adults?
Yes. However, Dr Silver does not work with all conditions. If you are wondering if Dr Silver works with your condition, please call 248-397-4664 to speak with our front desk.
Do you do cancer care?
Dr Silver does not provide holistic cancer support. There are naturopathic doctors in this area that have a special certification in naturopathic cancer care, called FABNO certification. Dr Silver refers people who are seeking co-treatment for cancer to one of these providers, in order to ensure that they get the best care possible.
Do you take insurance?
Unfortunately, because we don’t yet have licensure in Michigan, Naturopathic Doctors can’t bill insurance. However, we can accept Health Savings Accounts (HSA’s) and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA’s). Dr Silver is happy to fill out any paperwork necessary for you to use these forms of payment.
Can you do labs?
Yes. We work with both Genova Diagnostics for functional testing and Lab Corps for general blood work or specialized testing.
Do you draw blood in your office?
No. For regular blood work, blood draws are performed on-site at Lab Corp. For functional testing, blood can be drawn at a mobile phlebotomist’s office such as Pinnacle Mobile Phlebotomy or Michigan Mobile Phlebotomy. These services can also draw blood at your home for an additional fee.
