What People Say About Dr. James Altieri, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Altieri is a wonderful and compassionate physician. Our family has been seeing him for over 15 years. If it were not for this physician, I would be seeking another primary care practice. The challenge is the staff with little understanding of the meaning of what constitutes a medical home. They are so stuck on the steps to delivering care they have lost sight of the meaning of the reason the practice exits - to meet patient needs. This starts with listening.

I LOVE Dr. Altieri. I have been going to him for over 15 years and would never go to anyone else. Since being bought by Lexington Hospital, the staff and the rest of the office have gone totally downhill. I have no idea what happened just because they were bought out, but I still love him and will continue to see him hoping they will one day be sold and bought by another hospital. The staff has become HORRIBLE!
