Dr. Altman has been my E.N.T. going on 4 years and I am totally satisfied with his expertise regarding my care ,there has never been any rush to get me in and out ....addresses all my concerns completely and he has a great sense of humor. Thank you Dr. Altman

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.

He's a great doctor , he's professional and an excellent doctor.

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.

Wonderful doctor. Procedure don't so well that I didn't need to take any of my prescribed pain meds

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.
