Patient Comments (1)
Chevy Chase, MD |
Dr. Alter is wonderful. He is knowledgable, thorough, and extremely kind. He loves babies and cares deeply about supporting a healthy pregnancy. You can wait a while to see him sometimes but that is the nature of a responsive OBGYN practice. When I was pregnant and needed urgent assistance, he would always see me. Now as a healthy person, I will wait so that others with urgent needs can be seen. You can't have it both ways.
