Great doctor. One of the best in his field, along with an office staff to match. Everyone goes above, beyond and out of their way to make your visit a memorable one. Been seing the doctor for 25+ years.

I brought my teenage son for a problem with his shoulder despite all the negative reviews. This guy knows his job and is a specialist. He found a problem previously missed by another specialist. He then referred me to a Dr. in the area that specializes in my son's shoulder injury. Office staff were great to me, Dr Altman was quick and to the point. He was friendly. He is not a baby sitter and tells it how it is. My kind of guy. Thanks

I drove about 12 miles to see this doctor because they had a same week appointment. Good impression when you walk in, staff not friendly at all, The wait was not bad, but when the assistant got me into the room the chair was disgusting and the rugs were super dirty. I wish i could post the picture here. When the doctor came, he didn't introduce himself, he jumped into reading my complain, spent literally 3 min with me with poor assessment. He only addressed one problem that i mentioned. I am goi
