What People Say About Dr. Gregory Altemose, MD

This review is with reference to a routine 6 month check up with Dr. Altemose in July of 2019. I can say without hesitation that Dr. Altemose is an exceptional listener, and always provides opportunity for questions and discussion of his diagnosis, options for treatment. While he is a heart specialist he is also genuinely interested in my overall health, and takes time to query me on any changes that have occurred since our last visit. He has a calming manner and quiet confidence that I wish all doctors had. I would recommend him without hesitation.

He is such an amazing doctor. He listened to me, ask me if I agreed with his approach. Looked me in the eyes when he spoke to me. I was so afraid going into my appointment but felt confident leaving the office. If only all doctors could be like him.

I would highly recommend Dr. Altemose, because my mother is a patient of his. When he did a procedure for her, and came out into the waiting room to let me know that things went well, he was so professional about it. when he had gone back into my mother, everyone one in the waiting room remarked how professional he was compared to their dr.s for their loved one.
