What People Say About Dr. Anthony Altimari, MD
Reply
I met with Dr. Altimari regarding a serious issue. In short he is great! Dr. Altimari was able to help me and, due to the minimally invasive procedure, I recovered very quickly. I have already recommended him to a good friend who had similar results.
