I never got to personally meet the man. Obviously his time is way more important than mine. The office cancels my 1st appt. & reschedules it a week later. Then cancels my rescheduled appt. & asks me to come in early. With all the pain I am in I agree to leave work early and drive 1 1/2 hrs back for the earlier appt. Only to get a phone call 10 min. before my appt. that the Dr. has left for the day. I cannot even begin to describe how angry I am. This is not how you treat customers or clients!!

Dr. Altman is the Best! He is a kind, caring, understanding and overall a fine human being! Did I forget to add that he is a fantastic surgeon!! I was recommended to Dr. Altman by another doctor, that did not feel comfortable performing my surgery. Thank you again Dr. Altman. Diane D

My arm looked like a pretzel after a bad car wreck. I am a Medical Technologist and right handed, and a full recovery was imperative for my career. I am amazed at how well I can function. Great experience with him and his staff.
