We arrived a few minutes late due to fog and distance we traveled. Receptionist was very friendly and understanding. we were not set back on time at all in leau of our tardiness. Dr Altman was very clear and consice in her explanation of what she believed Achilles diagnoses would be and what steps we could take if treatment was not effective.

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.

Dr. Altman was excellent. Making appointment to see the doctor as soon as possible was a little difficult. when I called the beginning of January for an appointment, I was given April 29 and at time my son needed immediate dermatologist attention so I put him in the cancellation list. Due to the urgency I called faithfully every morning at 8 am to see if there was any opening at all. After a few call, I was able to get him to see any Dermatologist that was available and that how he was able to see Dr. Altman sooner than April 29.
