Dr. Altnue has provided wonderful care for my 90-year old mother for the past 10 years. She takes the time to listen to our concerns and is caring. When Mom was ready for a retirement home, Dr. Altneu set us up with a senior coordinator who was very helpful.

This doctor blew off my husband when he was showing signs of cancer. She even argued with me about his elevated white blood cell count being "nothing to worry about". 6 months later he was diagnosed with cancer. 9 months after that he died.

It started well but then went downhill. Was pegged into a category so the doctor saw me through only that one scope. Not good. Lost confidence in her treatment and caring for me. She didn’t see me as a multi dimensional human being. She demeaned me for being me in her low tone of voice. She was definitely not a match for me and my health requirements.

I appreciate her "bedside manner" and her willingness to answer any and all questions. I have recommended her to several people who have asked for recommendations on a female doctor who accepts medicare.

Don't bother trying to add Dr Altneu as new Primary Physician. Scheduling will place your first appointment 3-4 months in the future even if you are in dire need of medical attention now.
