in Woodbury, NY |
There are very few doctors like Dr. Altman. He is an amazing physician and diagnostician, and he has a heart! He truly cares about his patients and I haven't found that very often. My husband was a 9/11 Rescue Worker and had a rare issue with larynx spasm that would cause him to pass out. It took us 1 1/2 years of seeing all sorts of doctors who just handed out meds and couldn't figure out what the issue was. Dr. Altman diagnosed the problem and was always there for us. He is a blessing!
