About Dr. Shana Silverstein

Dr. Silverstein moved to the Triangle in 2007 after working in private practice in Massachusetts and Arizona. She much prefers the climate and culture of North Carolina to all of her previous homes! She is a native of New Jersey, and she received both her BS in Biology (’95) and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (’99) from Cornell University. While a graduate student, she was part of the original team of students who created the Pet Loss Support Hotline at the veterinary college.

“Dr. Shana” pursued training in veterinary acupuncture in 2012, and she has enjoyed the ability to offer additional treatment opportunities for her patients within an integrative medicine setting. She prides herself on building strong doctor-client-patient relationships and educating her clients to empower them to participate in their pets’ health care plans.

Dr. Shana shares her life with her husband, Tom, and children, Liam and Talia. Their home is the playzone for their pittie, Cisco Rango, and two cats, Ricci and Alice. In her spare time, she tries to take Cisco for a run, she is actively involved with her synagogue as a Torah scroll reader, and she sings with the Triangle Jewish Chorale. She is also the proud daughter of her parents, who are dedicated weekly photography volunteers at Wake County Animal Center.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I am so thankful for Dr.Silverstein and her staff. By far one of the best Doctors I have the honor of meeting. Such a great place, great staff and quality care. Dr. Silverstein cares about her patients.
After a long days work, she still sat down with me and discussed EVERYTHING with me, in detail for over a half an hour. I could tell she works hard to see all of her patients – yet she is very thorough and attentive to each one of them. My best friend means the world to me.
I feel so much better knowing that the Furball has a great primary care physician now.


I’ve never had a bad experience at Shiloh. I’ve been taking my girls there for over 10 yrs. I have even moved 30 minutes away and still drive there. Dr. Alley and Dr. Shana are the best.
