About

I am a board certified physician practicing internal and bariatric medicine for 13 years in New Jersey.  As an osteopathic physician, I practiced with my father (also a DO) for 11 years before his retirement.

My discovery of integrative medicine has caused a sort of renaissance in the way I view health care and the care of my patients.  There was a part of medical care missing for me, in the sense of not giving my patients tools to promote self-care and wellness.  Now, I teach my patients the value of good nutrition, self-reflection and feeling empowered in managing their own health.

When I’m not practicing medicine I enjoy time with my wife and two kids.

Please share your thoughts and feelings about this blog.                                                                     Mat's blog photo #2

  1. I am happy to read that you promote proper nutrition. I speak to people daily through this blog and weekly at speaking engagements and it seems everyone neglects their health. Whereas almost every single successful person I know has health at the top of their priority list. I myself focus on my health as one of the top priorities in my life and promote it actively! Good to meet and keep up the good work!

  2. Glad to know that you care about integrative medicine.

    Thank you to follow my blog and like my poetry. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

  3. Nice to meet you Dr Mat Silverman, duly enabled by your visiting and liking one of my posts. Integrative medicine is rapidly expanding field in India, where the concept of holistic treatment is offered to people with single or multiple ailments, combining the efficiencies of modern, homeopathic, and traditional (called Aayurveda in India) medicines, topped up by yoga. Keen to stay connected and exchange notes on issues of mutual interest…best wishes… Raj.

    • Thank you so much Raj. I am interested to learn more about Ayurvedic medicine in my own practice as well as benefits of yoga. Certainly physicians who are household names like Dr. Deepak Chopra have made that type of medicine popular here in the U.S. I’m also interested in your writing look forward to more posts. Thanks again
