I met Dr Altachuler recently while I was in the hospital. I have never recommended a doctor, until now. He was professional on every level, he answered all my questions, and I asked many. He explained everything to me making certain I understood what he was telling me. I recently saw him again in his Port Saint Lucie office, which was lovely, my weight was less than 15 minuets. And again Dr Altachuler took his time and answered all my questions. He is a wonderful doctor.

Has he returned back to Port Saint Lucie. I heard he came back this way

Total know it all and transactional meaning everything needs a colonoscopy because that is how he gets paid. The staff is poor as well, you call and leave a message in the morning then have to drive to the office in person because nobody calls you back. When asked why no call-back you get a shrug and told they're busy. Apparently he is leaving the Jup Med Center, only affirms what many feel about him. Don't waste your time, plenty of good GI Doctors in Palm Beach.

Dr. Altschuler performed an endoscopy procedure, which went smoothly at the Palm Beach Laser Center. He listened to my concerns and responded appropriately. He was willing to discuss alternatives to being on Prilosec, which I had been on for over 10 years, when the results of my procedure indicated their was no need for prolonged use. I would recommend him.

I wouldn't let this guy anywhere near my body. He has poor bedside manner. His answers to questions are short in reply as in you're bothering him. He's as arrogant as they come. To top it off he told me not to take milk thistle supplements because they did nothing. When I asked what proof or studies he read to prove that...he said "Google It." I ran out of that place as fast as I could.
