Dr. Altman is a credit to the institution and to her specialty. She instills confidence and is professional, caring, knowledgeable and has a warm, friendly demeanor. she is a clear communicator and manages to be informative and focused without being brusque, which is a difficult balance to achieve. She is a gifted clinician and is a real asset for BSWH.

I was impressed with everyone, from the front desk to the extreamly nice lady's I saw before the Dr. It did seem a little bit rushed once the Dr came in to look me over. It took me so long to get an appointment, I can see why they have to move along so fast. I think it would be better if the Dr had more time to spend with me. Again I do see why they have to move along so fast. Maybe more Dr would help with this load of patients.
