Dr. Altman takes her time with her patients. She is an excellent listener and encourages her patients to maintain their health through options and treatment she recommends and then listens as to whether that treatment works for you. If it doesn't she works through other treatments. She is not in a hurry or do you feel rushed.

I saw Dr. Altman in 2014 because I kept getting sick and had inexplicably gained weight. Even though I told her I had just done a half Ironman and always watched my diet, she told me my best option was taking Phentermine, a.k.a. fen-Phen, a.k.a. prescription speed, a.k.a. the pill given to housewives of yesteryear to keep them short-term skinny but messed up their metabolism and overall health long-term. Two years and a few other doctors later, I have been diagnosed with endometriosis.
