Dr. Altman is without a doubt the best doctor I have ever been to. He lifts my spirits just by being in his office. I'm afraid I use him for more than just my ENT conditions because he knows more than most PCP's that I have been to. His personality makes us a good match. I wish that every doctor would have the overall knowledge that he has. He makes going to the doctor a treat instead of a dread. Thanks for being that doctor that I can depend on to make the best decision for my health needs.

Doctor Altman is hands down the best ENT there ever was, or could be. As a professional singer, he has helped me through numerous situations to keep my voice healthy and at its best. Knowledgable, with the best bedside manner, I will continue to recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs specialty ENT care. I go out of my way to see him specifically.

Horrible, did not even make eye contact with me half the time. Playing with his laptop and seemed uninterested in what I was saying. Got a second opinion with a wonderful Doc.

Butcher!!!!!!! I haven't been able to swallow food since the butcher removed the back of my tongue. Ran as fast as you can!!!!

Dr Altman is an excellent physician, thorough, knowledgeable, generous with his time and gentle. I have been a patient of his for many years and have recommended him to many people, who have also been extremely pleased with his care.
