Patient Comments (2)
in Norwalk, CT |
14 years ago I had a shoulder injury after a drunk driver hit my car head on at 7 pm one night. Multiple fractures and a torn rotator cuff. Other doctors told me I would never have full use of the arm. Dr. Altchek saw me as a favor to a relative. He calmed me and told me I would be okay. He scheduled surgery very soon and he repaired it. I have met other people through my job who had the same injury but not even close to the same outcome. He is the best!!!!

Dr. David Altchek performed elbow reconstruction surgery in November of 2016. He, and his staff, knowledgeable, caring and efficient. I was completely confident going into the surgery and, so far, I have had an excellent result. I would recommend Dr. Altchek to anybody and everybody.
