I saw Dr Altman a few weeks ago for lesions. After struggling to get the appointment after dealing with the incompetent staff I finally saw her. She provided me no new knowledge or treatment.

Horrible doctor. Has zero clue what dermatological medications cause for side effects. Zero empathy for patient's concerns

I had never been to a dermatologist, so had no idea what to expect. The office staff was very welcoming. Dr Altman put me at ease immediately. She explained the procedures before she began a full body examination. When a biopsy of tissue on my nose was required, Dr Altman made me aware of of every step in the process. Upon completion she explained I would get a call with the results in a week. I would highly recommend Dr Altman if you are in need of a dermatologist.

Dr, Altman is warm and friendly, the staff is welcoming. The doctor quickly diagnosed a rare condition that I have and I'm moving forward to a specialist for more in depth work up. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Altman and I will do the same if anyone asks. The office is located in a quiet area off Madison Ave. with plenty of parking.

Dr Altman is terrific. My dad has been a patient of Dr Altman for years. She is efficient and very caring. She doesn't rush through the appointment. Her explanations are clear and concise.

Went to Dr. Alman for a lump on my chin and a patch of bad skin on the side of my face. She said the lump was scar tissue; that she could treat it with injections or she could refer me to another Dr. to remove it. Said she could remove it but the other Dr. was better at it. She said she had nothing for the other problem; said it looked like oil glands with maybe a cyst under it. Injections didn't work for lump; said she wasn't comfortable performing surgery on the face. Sent me elsewhere.
