Sam Osuna – Oct 04, 2019
In August of 2009, at age 44, I had a heart attack, was transported to Arundel Medical by ambulance and Dr. Altschuler performed an emergency catheterization that saved my life. I had no prior heart symptoms and considered myself very active and in shape, although I never worried much about my diet nor considered family genetics a potential threat; but they both played a considerable role. I am forever grateful for Dr. Altschuler's quick and precise actions, and for his continued guidance.

Chip Stehle in Davidsonville, MD – Oct 26, 2017
As a medical doctor, Dr. Altschuler seems highly skilled. However, lack of ability to coordinate well between getting lab results, scheduling follow ups to monitor acute issues, having office and/or doctor return calls, etc. has led to some serious problems in my family's case. It is unfortunately not an uncommon problem with medical offices but this one was the worst I've seen in awhile.

Silver Spring, MD – Jul 06, 2017
We received care from Dr Altschuler at AAMC Emergency and Cath Lab. He and his team are amazing. The concern, care, patience and quick actions to help my husband were amazing. I was given prompt updates on the condition of my husband in language I could understand. Dr. Altschuler personally checked in on us despite being on-call and called back within a 12 plus our timeframe. I am so thankful for Dr. Jonathan A Altschuler. I highly recommend him.
