After explaining details about needed throat surgery, he offered me time to think about it. After a couple of months, his staff called me saying the doctor feels that I shouldn't take too long to make my choice. So I had it done that same month. The surgery was done in a hospital environment surgery center where I felt safe if any other condition arose. He called me at home the next day to followup. I experience very little discomfort during and days after. I'm very pleased!

Love Dr. Altman - he's knowledgeable, kind, reassuring, takes the time to answer all of your questions, and does not make you feel rushed. However, it's difficult to make an appointment with him - the gentleman in charge of scheduling appointments is less than helpful - the date/time of my follow-up appointment has been screwed up TWICE, and the gentleman makes no effort to fix the situation or at least acknowledge and apologize for his mistake - I have to drop my star rating for this reason.

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.
