I was not impressed at all with Dr. Alten. She was constantly checking her watch during my visits and always seemed in a rush, so I never felt I was able take my time. It was my first baby so I had a lot of questions and she seemed condescending and I felt stupid for asking my questions. Terrible experience with the whole practice, and I would never recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Alten is amazing. Its been already 5 years for me but during my entire pregnancy back in 2013 she was amazing. It was my second c-section which I started to walk the next day and felt better every single day. Anytime I needed her to talk to or even anyone at the office I was able to reach and speak to someone. I promised her if I ever got pregnany again she would be my obgyn again. I did move from St.Louis to Miami FL but I do recommend Dr.Alten. Thank you Dr.Alten for everything. Elma

Alten failed my Nora who was born into heaven on May 20th 2018 @ 39 weeks!Alten didn’t take my concerns about my low amniotic fluid at 34 weeks when I told her about my first daughter and how I had to be induced because of my fluid she said “no two pregnancies are the same“ but mine were!She played god with my body and chose not to measure me and since my last ultrasound was Feb. 27th she had no way to know what my fluids were doing,so for almost 3 months Nora was not monitored. I had no fluid

I LOVE Dr. Alton. She is so bubbley and amazing. She makes me feel super comfortable but it is nearly impossible to get ahold of anyone in that building. I was only hold all together for over an hour and they kept transferring me back and forth. The front desk person ended up transferring me to an answering machine and I just left a message. I’m still waiting for a call back. Not happy.

The first time I went here I actually really liked the staff and office. When I went to make my next appointment it was a complete trainwreck. The staff was rude, you are left on hold forever and they forward you back and forth and end up hanging up. It was impossible to pay your bill, renew prescriptions and make appointments. Do not recommend.

Dr. Alten is such a caring and down to earth, friendly person. The level of care we have received from her is above and beyond what most doctors give. My daughter and I have been seeing her for 8 years now and really appreciate and are thankful for her. I would absolutely recommend her.

She is amazing. I found her when I was new to St. Louis and was unexpectedly pregnant for the first time at 40. She helped me with every concern and I couldn't recommend her more.
