Dr. Altbaum is the most incredible doctor that my family and I have ever had, and that includes my parents, as well as my own family. He is impeccable, smart, thorough, and very hard working. He returns every phone call immediately, he calls with the results of all of your lab tests as soon as he gets them. He is a real partner in managing my health. He is seriously the best doctor around.

Dr Altbaum is really excellent. I've had some complicated issues and he is right on with diagnoses and solutions. He knows and recognizes and solves extremely rare conditions and not so rare. He never disappoints.
