I've seen Dr. Altman for more than 12 years. He's done multiple trigger finger repairs, repaired a torn rotator cuff, and rebuilt the joint of my right thumb. You wont' find a more capable or skillful an orthopaedic surgeon anywhere. I keep going back, and I keep recommending him to those I run across who may need his services.
