i checked myself into the hospital because of an extreme anxiety, the hospital wanted to make sure my psychiatrist would prescribe me the meds. That they prescribed me before releasing me. When I called dr Altman to ask him if he would he acted annoyed that I was in the hospital and said he didn't know if he had time for me. He made me cry on multiple occasions when I told him he was making me feel had he said, "don't play the victim" I would rather suffer alone then see him.

Dr. Altman is a cold and callous man. He is into his profession strictly for the money. He provides no therapy whatsoever, just prescribes medications. Appointments are 15 minutes in duration at best, yet he bills for a 'long' session. The man has ripped off my insurance company from the get go, and when questioned about his fees, he becomes totally defensive. To quote his response: Why do you care about how much I charge your insurance provider; you're only responsible for a small co-pay!

Dr. Altman doesn't staff a medical secretary, insurance coder or anyone to assist him with medical paperwork processing. A serious concern and red light arose in my mind, but not until Dr. Altman complained about completing insurance paperwork for STD and lastly basically refused to submit paperwork because he just had come back from vacation and literally asked ME when HE was going to have time to finish my paperwork. This is HIGHLY unprofessional - DELETE from Contacts and report medical board
