Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
Dr. Altcheck was a disaster. I came in with severe sores in my mouth and he decided, after a cursory look, that my symptoms were such "classic herpes" that he didn't need to run any tests. He prescribed a non-generic drug that cost $500, and said I would have to take it for the rest of my life. He sent me away, terrified, after ten minutes. The medicine didn't help at all. The sores burst. Then It happened again. Turns out I had an allergic reaction to quinine. He put my family through hell.
