Most AMAZING doc I've ever met! She's extremely caring & gentle, had a wonderful experience!

I had an abysmal experience with Dr Alter and would thoroughly recommend against her due to her incompetence and unprofessionalism. Although she is supposed to be a specialist in high-risk pregnancy, when I went to see her with slight complications (it turned out just to be a polyp), she refused to even scan me or attend to me, and abruptly and without compassion sent me away. I would not recommend this woman to my worst enemy.
