Irving, TX |
The person who answered the phone was very rude. I just wanted to set an appointment for a friend to go see the doctor again.
Coppell, TX |
Dr Alter seemed professional and knowledgeable. After researching on my own and visiting other doctors seems behind on medical alternatives advisable and available to diagnose elevated PSA levels. Seek second opinions prior to Biopsy or surgery. He seemed too quick to order biopsy which was very invasive. If issues found recommended immediate surgery vs presenting various viable options such as highly effective proton treatment.

First visit as a patient and paid $300 out of pocket with insurance to find out nothing. He wanted to schedule ct scan two weeks out and I ended up in the ER prior to that Bc my symptoms were so bad. Calling the office is worse than calling a credit card company. You have to go through an answering service to get anyone. Called before the ER to tell about my symptoms and some lady called me back 5 minutes before the office closed...answers from a specialist would be nice.
