Dr Altman treated me Friday August 16 2019. I was being seen for a heart kath. He and his staff were great, they helped turn a very stressful situation into something more manageable. His staff was very good, always explaining everything. Dr Altman himself was very knowledgeable and explained everything. I was lucky my procedure turned out great. But I knew he take care of whatever came up Thank all of you again, I would highly recommend you to anyone.

I’ve been pleased with my two meetings with Dr. Altman in the past year, although I waited 45 minutes past my last appointment time. However I may decide to go elsewhere because I can’t reach the office by phone. I tried 5 times to call to change an appointment, waited on hold an average of 15 or 20 minutes and never reached a human being. So I’m a no show. That’s just wrong!

Recommending Dr. Altman and CHV has dropped from "definitely" to "maybe" due to the office being overwhelmed. Plan on waiting each and everytime you have an appointment. A 2:00 appointment might be 3:30, a 1:00 is 1:45... they have never been even close to meeting a appointment. It's only a time for you to show up, not for them the meet you. Your time is irrelevant. I can't imagine ANY other business surviving with this customer last attitude.
