If I could give a 0 star review I would. This doctor does not care about his patients, seems too busy, and seems as though he is only there to collect a paycheck. He dismisses what you say and does not listen. He does not care about your history like an actual professional should. He does not listen and if you try to speak up, he will talk over you. Also if you mention a kind of treatment just because you have questions he will just give you that without saying whether he would have chosen that. Because then he doesn't have to do his job of designing a remedy for you. Do not pay money to see this doctor. I wouldn't see him even if it was free with my insurance. Don't waste a visit or your free time. See someone who actually cares.

Kind of dismissive at first. Like I was just some hysterical woman. I had an itchy and painful rash that was ruining my life for a year. I had to get a bit loud with him to emphasize the fact that I wasn't over exaggerating my symptoms. (Which to be fair, were mild that day.) I think he got the point and from then on, everything was fine.

I used to see Dr. Altman in the past and thought he was great. Several years later I had an issue and Dr. Altman had relocated so I went to several different dermatologists. My issue continued so I found Dr. Altman. He spends a lot of time with you listening. He does a complete and thorough exam and gave me three options. He is a real person and is easy to talk to. Dr. Altman was well worth the extra time it took to get to his new location. I very highly recommend him!

I've seen several doctors and dermatologist regarding an ongoing cystic issue in my armpit. I have to say that Dr. Altman gave the best advice out of all of them. He took the time to chat for 15 minutes with me regarding all the possible skin conditions that could be causing it, their symptoms and treatments that I can try. Most other doctors give me one opinion and tell me I should either drain or cut it out. I've had all that done. Dr. Altman was the most thorough of anyone.

I am a 19 year old female with an autoimmune disease. I went to Dr. Altman to check out a rash. Aside from acting extremely dismissive of my concerns, he also made rude comments. He told me that my "hands are not very womanly" and when he asked what I do and I responded I work at a barn, he remarked "I was wondering where that stench was coming from". He asked about my health history and in response to my answer said "Oh...you actually sound educated". I was disappointed by his crass behavior.

Dr. Altman is patient friendly. He takes the time to explain current research as he makes his recommendations for treatment and also spends time listening to you as a patient. As a result you feel you are working together with the treatment plan. Each time is a memorable experience. I have been with him a long time and appreciate all he has done for me.
