Dr. Altman is a first class doctor and performed miracles with my son's cystic acne. I've never had a doctor spend so much time with us and explain everything. I also went in recently and he was so accommodating and thorough. He really is a first class guy!

Everyone there is so friendly. It was a breath of fresh air and I think I found a permanent dermatologist. I will even have my husband go as well. Staff is excellent and the Dr. Makes you feel comfortable.

I've been going to Dr. Altman since I was a kid and he is a fantastic Doctor! Short wait times and one of the only doctors who is open late! I can actually go to his office AFTER I finish work instead of taking a half day. Thanks Dr. A!

He has a poor attitude. He does not talk to the Patients like an adult. He talks down to the patients. He is not careful when examining the patients and tend to miss thing. If you wish to be insulted as a patient he is the doctor for you.

I left his office within minutes, with every question i had unanswered. He basically did not have time for me! A rushed, general look at my back , that took about 2 seconds, where I have a new black mole with uneven edges. I lost sleep over that mole that measures 2 mm by 3 mm . I tried to tell him that but I'm not sure he heard me because he did not pay attention to me at all. Deeply disappointed ! ..And frustrated because now i have to go to another dermatologist to make sure everything is ok

Short wait is compromised by poor hygiene. The chairs do not have a table paper, Paper Towel tray has been empty for last two visits. Front desk personnel is in charge for maintatining and preparing room fro next patients hence it is not well executed (perhaps due to doble role at front desk). Not recommended for elderly nor kids

Dr. Altman is an amazing doctor! I have been going to him for a very long time and now I take my daughters too. He is patient, kind, empathetic, professional, thorough, knowledgeable and an overall great doctor. He has done an excellent job in treating all of my skin cancers and any other skin problems that I have had. I highly recommend him to everyone I meet. I rarely have to wait when I have an appointment but even if I did he is worth it.
