LOVE Dr. Altman. He came highly recommended by my pediatric nurse friends and I have found their advice to be sound. My daughter has seen him for almost 7 years now. The worst part of the experience is making an appointment, but it is worth the effort. Getting in right away is easy, but scheduling in advance (for a day off school, for instance) is nearly impossible.

Whoever says Dr. Altman is not great... simply wrong. He spends more time with you than any dictor have ever had appointment with. Listens, is patient, great with my son, explains things very well to me. Bedside manner is top notch! Really could not ask for a better doctor.

I have never met someone with worse bedside manner than Dr. Altman. You can tell he has an enormous ego and even though he asks you questions, he immediately cuts you off. I think all my responses got out 2-3 words then he didn't want to hear anything more I had to say. When your child is your life you expect better communication. I also comments he isn't an expert on the stuff you go to him for (after). And you get zero prior warning when talking to staff on WHY you need to come in. Stay away.
