Patient Comments (1)
in Reading, PA |
He is a remarkably responsive to the needs of his patents. He is the only doctor I found that truly listens to patient's family concerns and is able to take an active part when dealing with drug companies to secure medications when needed.
Thank you, Thomas! We will pass this information along to Dr. Altomare, which I'm sure he will be very happy to hear!
