With his wife, Ann, by his side, Dr. David Silverstein started this family practice in 1965 after graduating from the Philadephia College of Osteopathy. During his medical career, he served as Chairman of Family Practice, and instituted several medical postgraduate programs at LOH. After taking additional training at Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia, he started the dialysis unit for individuals suffering from kidney diseases. He was the first Osteopathic physician to be granted privileges to practice at Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Lancaster.
Known for his compassion and love for his patients, he developed a large following with patients traveling long distances to see him.
At the time of his death in 2006, he and his wife, Ann, had been married 56 years. Mrs. Ann Silverstein continues to be a beloved presence in our office - working part-time - which we feel gives the words "Family Practice" true meaning.
