Absolutely the most arrogant doctor I have ever been in contact with. She is absolutely not qualified to treat people. She would not see my daughter who has a serious condition because she was a minor--SHE IS NOT A MINOR. The way she treated us and the the manner in which her receptionist treated us and the ophthamologist is unbelieveable. Probably dodged a bullet by not wasting time or money with this doctor.

I have no problem with Dr. Altamirano herself, but I have had a lot of problems with her office staff being on top of things and in a timely manner. If she had better help, this would go up by far and I wouldn't be looking for a new doctor.
