What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Altschuler, MD

I've never met a doctor who was so incompetent. Didn't care about my symptoms that I had for low testosterone. I had a leg injury and I asked to get an x Ray to see the extent of the damage and he said you don't need to get an x Ray I'll write you a perscription to take away the pain. Stay away...Read More
