Dr. Altman performed a simultaneous cardiac ablation and Watchman on me 3 months ago. Everything went extremely well, and I no longer have Afib. As far as I'm concerned, Dr. Altman is my hero!

Dr Altman is very knowledgable & skilled but also is a very caring, kind, & compassionate doctor. When I am not feeling well he always fits me into his busy schedule & calls me back in a timely manner when I have any questions. I have seen a few different EP doctors while admitted in the hospital but always remain a patient of his. He is extremely thorough.I highly recommend.Also, I have never waited more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Doctors cannot always help this but I'm always amazed!

I am a 25 year old male. I had multiple SVTs with a resting heart rate of over 200. Dr. Altman did an EP study, diagnosed Wolfe-Parkinson-White & did a Cardio Ablation. Today, I am fine, symptom-free & 'cured.' I highly recommend Dr. Altman. He really cares about his patients. I had a lot of confidence in his diagnosis & treatment plan. At my 6-month follow-up today, I think he was happier than me to see my perfect EKG. He gave me back the ability to live a normal life & I am very grateful.
