Very satisfied. I was recommended to see him about cataract surgery. He told me the problem was not that, but a bad front of my cornea with scars on it. He removed the scarring in the office in 5 minutes. It was really irritated for 2 days like he said, but then once it was smooth my vision got do much better and I didn't need an operation after all. I was very happy with his explanation and how I was treated by Dr. Altman and his office.

I was a bit nervous prior to my cataract surgery, but was treated with generous amounts of compassion from top to bottom. You are NOT just another patient. Professionalism and smiles from everyone. They get you in and out swiftly with all questions answered. I have never had a Dr call me after I arrived home and that phone call from Dr Altman shows he cares. So very glad I came there. I have no regrets about my choice.

Dr. Altman is excellent. I had Lasik surgery and I would recommend him to anybody looking to have their vision corrected. The follow up care was top notch and it's very obvious that he cares about his patients.

Dr. Altman is the best! He was very thorough in explaining the LASIK process and what to expect. During the procedure, he talked me through each step and told me what was happening. His staff is friendly and helpful. Great place to deal with!

About a year out from my LASIK procedure with better vision than my glasses or contacts could have given me!
|
My regular eye doctor suggested I see him for cataracts. He was very professional and it surgery went just like he said and I see much better. I only needed it in one eye but it fixed it and I would highly suggest him. I will go back if other eye gets worse. He helped me a lot. Explained things very well.
