Debra Flannery was a patient for more than 25 years. “I had always gone to female doctors,” she recalled. “I was a little bit hesitant. But right away he made me feel very comfortable. He’s a jokester. But he was a serious doctor.”
Flannery, of Jupiter, is one of a wide range of patients and friends mourning Silverman’s passing Sept. 10 from complications related to COVID-19, the respiratory ailment the virus creates. She said she could discuss anything with him.
“It was never, ‘Hurry up, Time to go.’ He loved helping people. He was a selfless person. Just an amazing man.”

Comments like those don’t surprise Valerie Silverman. “People found him easy to talk to,” she said of her husband. “He wasn’t just their doctor. They considered him their friend. People trusted him. He practiced as much psychology as medicine in his office. He was just a kind, generous person.”
Silverman was 71. He and Dr. William Casale shared a practice, Comprehensive Women’s Medical Center, on Forest Hill Boulevard.

'He’s delivered thousands, thousands of babies that are here in Palm Beach County over the last 40 some-odd years,' County Commissioner Greg Weiss, who counted Silverman as a constituent, said at the board's meeting Tuesday. 'He was in good health, and it’s a loss to the community, to lose anyone.'

Silverman had no underlying health conditions, his wife said. He was a runner and a cyclist, even pedaling on weekends as far as Delray Beach from their South End home in West Palm Beach. He also worked with a personal trainer. Aztec's millions slots games.
'He was in excellent shape,” Valerie Silverman said. “He didn’t want to retire.”
But when he experienced a sore throat and a headache last month, he got tested for the coronavirus. The test was positive. Within days of being admitted to a hospital, he was in intensive care and on a ventilator, and remained on one until his death nearly four weeks later.
“It ruined his lungs,” Valerie Silverman said. “He never knew if he got it in the office. He was very careful.”

In addition to his wife, Silverman is survived by his children Aimee (Greg) and Michael, grandchildren Ethan and Andrew Horowitz, sister-in-law, Betsy (John) Brod and their children, Seth Brod and Jennifer (Jeff) Bernstein.
The family had a Zoom funeral with about 330 guests – some from as far away as Australia and France. His daughter eulogized Silverman as a fervent fan of the band Maroon 5, and somebody who mischievously taught her youngest son naughty song lyrics. Most of all, she said, she will remember his gift to “create relationships and maintain connections.”
Silverman’s son said his father provided the family with wise counsel and a good life, and did so with a sense of humor, adding that “not much was sacred at the dinner table in our house growing up.”
Among those attending the funeral was County Mayor Dave Kerner, who said at Tuesday's meeting that Silverman delivered him in 1983.
Kerner noted that Silverman never stopped serving patients even amid the coronavirus 'because of his commitment to the public health.
'We remember him. We honor him and we keep him in our thoughts as we move forward cautiously,' Kerner said.
Silverman was a New York City native. He skipped two grades and began college at 16. He graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a degree in psychology, then spent two years teaching sixth grade at a Catholic school in that city.
But he opted for a career change and attended the medical school at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, followed by a residency at Hartford Hospital in Connecticut.

It was there that Silverman met his future wife, a school social worker. They married in 1976 and moved to West Palm Beach in 1977.
The warmer weather appealed to a young doctor who might have to go out nights to deliver babies. “He figured if he was going to be getting up nights, he didn’t want to be sloshing around in the ice,” his wife said.
Silverman developed varied interests such as growing orchids and travel. Destinations included Africa – three times – Europe, China, Australia New Zealand, Hawaii and Antarctica. He was a fine photographer and prints of his trips adorn his office.
“He loved life to the fullest,” his wife said. “I thought we’d have another 20 years, at least. He was my best friend. Even our dog misses him terribly.”

Last week the poker community learnt of the sad news that Italian poker pro Alessandro Bastianoni had commited suicide apparently after losing more than $600,000 playing in two poker events. The 48 year-old had travelled to South America to take part in various poker tournaments but the journey ended in tragedy when his body was discovered ten days after his death at a luxury apartment located in Miraflores in Peru.
Alessandro Bastianoni’s Colombian girlfriend, Yeinni Ospina, had reported last hearing from Bastianoni on July 6th when he had phoned her to tell her that he had lost a great deal of money, and as she explains he “had told me that he had lost a lot of money and you could see in his voice a deep sadness. I tried to cheer him up, but it was useless.”
Following their conversation and after not hearing from Alessandro Bastianoni for several days, Yeinni Ospina subsequently contacted the Italian Embassy in Lima and the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (Dirincri), who then began to search for Bastianoni, eventually leading to the tragic discovery. Next to Alessandro Bastianoni’s body was found a bottle containing poison, a briefcase with $140,000 inside and a last request letter that he should be cremated.
According to Ospina, Alessandro Bastianoni had travelled to Lima on May 13th to participate in the Latin Series of Poker competition and the PokerStars of Lima event, with the Hendon Mob database also showing that he had cashed in at the Latin America Poker Tour VI Colombia National Poker Championship, Medellin on June 8th.
Looking at Bastianoni’s tournament buy-ins, though, which are very low, it is difficult to see how he could have lost $600,000 on two events, so maybe it may have been a private game where he had lost the money or perhaps playing some other game of chance. Further investigation of the tragic incident should verify the truth.
