Dr. Altenhofen is very nice. His staff, however, is very incompetent. From giving incomplete lab forms, scheduling errors, telling me to go against the Dr.'s advice, having an MA sign for the physician. It was a nightmare. This is my first pregnancy and I found that you have to deal with the staff far more than the doctor and I eventually ran out of patience so I switched obstetricians.

I developed a rectocyle, and Dr. AltenhoffeN took me into surgery to repair it with pelvic mesh. Unfortunately, the mesh was faulty and required 7 more surgeries.His cheerfulness kept me upbeat during the times he tried to correct the problem. I have finally settled my lawsuit against the manufacturer, and highly recommend him to all women, regardless of their needs.
