I had the feeling that, during the appointment itself, there was such a focus on speed and efficiency that it didn\'t get noticed that the flimsy bandage placed on my chin (wart removal site) wasn\'t coming close to coping with the blood. I bled like a stuck-pig all the way home!

Our provider was wonderful. She was polite and showed genuine concern and interest in treating our sons condition. She answered all our questions and was extremely knowledgeable about his condition. Our son has a fear of Doctors but she was very kind to him and made him feel at ease, I cannot say enough good things about the care we received. I would definitely recommend this doctor. Thank you so much for the great service you provided to us.

Dr. Altman provides with a solution to an issue that occurred prior to this visit. When I called to ask for a renewal on medication her staff told me it was illegal to provide me with a script since it had been over a year since I saw Dr. Altman. Dr. Altman provided me with a solution that I feel will prevent the issue from occurring again in the future.
