Patient Comments (4)

Never use this doctor. He did a debridement on my daughters wounds when she was hospitalized and hat evening she bled out all over the place because he forgot to tell the nurses to stop her blood thinners. He was preparing a few weeks later to do another one and decided to change her blood...more

Dr. Altschuler might be fantastic, I will never know because a very rude, very unprofessional office manager, Brenda, would not listen to my questions or concerns about insurance. She told me to find another doctor, they didn't need my business. I'm horrified and appalled.

Dr. Altschuler was terrible he saw me for one minute and just by looking at me without any test said I did not have an vascular problem. At the time I visited him I was in so much pain. I got a second opinion and was told I do have vascular problem. Waste of money and time
