Dr. Altman's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Altman "Over 20 years of experience in private practice and academic settings have given me a broad range of experience in general and surgical dermatology. I have been proud to be recognized by my local and regional peers as a past president of The Chicago Dermatological Society as well as the Illinois Dermatological Society. I was also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Dermatology at Rush University Medical Center where I taught for over 20 years. I ran my own private practice in Arlington Heights, Illinois for over 20 years and am excited to have recently joined Mercy Health System where I see patients daily in their dermatology department at the Mercy Woodstock as well as at the Mercy Barrington locations. I see adults and children with a broad range of dermatology problems and do many biopsies, excisions and other procedures. I try to educate patients about their conditions and help them make the best decisions about which treatments are best for them."
This content was provided by Dr. Altman "I try to educate patients about which treatments are best for them and offer as full of a range of treatment options as possible. I also like to try to get to know my patients on a friendly basis and have positive visits so they can look forward to seeing their dermatologist and having an ongoing professional relationship that is healthy for them. I often find that by looking at patients holistically and as a physician and not just as a dermatologist, I can help make better diagnoses and offer better treatment options."
