Was very pleasured with the staff and how well I was treated and informed about the procedure I was having that day I highly recommend this doctor if anyone is experiencing this kind of problem Your in good hands
Dr. Altman is an awesome dermatologist! He has treated me for many years taking care of all of my skin care needs. He has always treated me with great respect and honesty. I would highy recommend him to anyone including my family and friends!
Dr. Altman had to fix a bad cancer spot from another Moh's surgeon. He is also very skilled at stitching up afterwards. It's very hard to see that anything was done at all. I would highly recommend Dr. Altman for his skills removing skin cancer.
I was a fist time patient and Dr. Roger W. Altman and his staff took care of my problem on the spot, very efficient, very fast and above all super professionals. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Dermatologist.
I would not recommend this doctor. First to schedule my appointment I was told I was going to receive papers to fill for my first visit, when I alled one day before to confirm my appt. (because no one from the office called: "Oh, no one mailed the papers. Just come in earlier". I should have trusted my instincts and never gone. He spent 4 minutes ( on the clock!) with me to telle there is nothing he can do because I am breastfeeding. Now... Not only he gave me the UNRELIABLE INFORMATION, as I have been researching, as he did not spend near enough time with me to talk about other ways to mitigate my issues. For example, I asked about cellulite, he said there's nothing he can do, instead of recommending food that can improve it's appearance or what to avoid! When I was leaving he told me he would research about Retinol and stretch marks while nursing and call me. You'd think that someone with 32 years of experience would know about it. I'm just really disappointed.
My husband had several skin growths on his forehead. Dr. Altman examined the growths, tested, accurately diagnosed and resolved the issue quickly. the procedure was smooth. My husband did not feel anything . And procedure smoothly done. VEry happy with Dr. Altman and his staff. Truly a professional group. Thank you, Dr. Altman and staff.
Dr. Altman and staff are professionals who care about their patients. My experiences, my father's experience and my good friends' experiences have been consistently timely, kind, personable and excellent care for all of us. I highly recommend Dr. Altman!
I had a skin problem that I was plagued with for over a year. I went to another doctor who missed diagnosed. I ended up going to Dr. Altman who correctly diagnosed the issue within seconds. He suggested a treatment and the issue was resolved. His office was a little further down the road, but it was worth the drive to get the correct diagnosis. His staff is awesome as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Altman to anyone who wants quality in every way.
Also gave me suggestions as to how to avoid problems, etc. He is not like other doctors who do not spend that much time with you or do not give you a straight answer. Dr. Altman zeroes in on the problem and gives a patient a complete answer right away, plus gives suggestions re prevention of how to avoid skin cancer.
Thrilled to relay the multitudinous glowing reviews are spot on! Dr. Altman and his team are stellar professionals and very caring human beings. Wonderfully steeped in expertise and integrity, his practice is the answer to your prayers should you have a dire dermatological need. They likewise accomplish innocuous procedures exceedingly well, all while intertwining humor and genuinely engaging you, ergo easing any anxieties. Consequently, admiration from other patients is palpable and visible, as several dropped in just to share regards with Dr. Altman and his staff. The only danger here is getting spoiled by this superior experience and then having to resume with stressed, albeit nice doctors in the real world. FYI, reassuring news -- overheard Dr. Altman say he plans to be in business a very long time so banish those fears of his early retirement!
Dr. Altman is very professional in all aspect of his practice. He treated several Skin cancers that I had and did a very excellent job. One of these cancers required a skin graft and it came out wonderful. You would never know that he had done a skin graft on my nose.
I have been seeing Dr. Altman for approx. 30 years. He took care of me when no doctor wanted to. He has prolonged my life. I am very gratful to him and his staff. Our son sees the doctor also, and has saved taking a chunk out of his lip by doing mose surgery.
THERE IS NOTHING THAT DR. ALTMAN CAN NOT DO OR EXPLAIN TO ME ABOUT MY DERMOTOLOGY NEEDS. IWOULD NOT GO TO ANY OTHER. THANK YOU
I had an area on my index finger that was red to the point of being almost purple, painful and swollen and excoriated. It was there for about 3 years and was progressively getting worse and extending down to my knuckle. I had gone to 3 other physicians, - 2 were dermatologists as well as 2 nurse practioners. They gave me antibiotics, steroid pills, injections, creams, antifungals etc. Nothing helped. I went to Dr Altman, who examined it very carefully and said he had never seen anything like it. Together, we looked at various other pictures and descriptions of similar looking conditions. He surgically removed a piece of tissue and sent it for biopsy and cultures. He was then able to correctly identify the cause and started me on a 2 month antibiotic course as well as an ointment with specific care instructions. My finger has completely returned to normal!
I have been a patient of Dr. Altman for many years, as well as other family members. Being a family of melanoma patients, Dr. Altman has been amazing. His knowledge and accuracy in examinations have proven amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Altman!!!
Dr. Altman cares and it shows with the easy manner in which he explains and listens as well as how he performs his work.
Growing up in Florida and being on the water for much of my youth, makes my dermatologist a very important part of my overall health care needs. Dr. Altman is the best! I have recommended Dr. Altman to many of my friends and they agree.
Today I had a 1:30 scheduled appointment. I had a six week wait to see this doctor. Upon arrival I observed a waiting room full of people waiting to see this doctor. The woman at the desk said "before you start to fill out the forms, I must tell you that it will be at Least an hour before you see the doctor. I said " I am not waiting over an hour to see a doctor." She said " at least I told you." I said" it would have been nice if you had called me at home before I made the trip, that you were running late, instead of letting me drive here to find out.I wouldn't use this doctor unless you would like to be treated like cattle. He is in it for the money. He is way overbooked. Is he sensitive to patient needs? Comfort? I think not?
I am truly sorry to keep any patient waiting, but due to MOHS surgery we get some unexpected delays. I called this patient to apologize and offered him a first morning appointment where he would not have to wait or pay a co-payment. He denied and said he already had an appointment with another doctor. I took everything he said as good advice for future situations and tried to make it up to this patient as i would to any of my patients if anything were to go wrong. I do care about my patients and made every attempt to rectify the unfortunate inconvenience.
This doctor's competency and thoroughness has probably literally safed my life. Had it not been for his skills and attention to the many skin cancers he has removed, I do not believe I would be alive today. His staff has always accommodated my needs to have the doctor see me, even on short notice. The trip of 52 miles to put my care in his hands is absolutely worth the time and I would go nowhere else. To call this man a "fine doctor" would be an understatement. Anyone requiring dermatological and/or surgical cancer care should put themselves in his care without reservation. I cannot recommend higher than 5 stars or I would.
Dr. Altman is a very caring and exceptional physician and I would highly recommend his expertise. He diagnosed correctly a nontypical case of shingles that the day before at the emergency room @ Yale University hospital in CT misdiagnosed. I was traveling for business and was so sick, I spent the day in the hospital and was discharged with antibiotics to treat cellulitis! Thank goodness I called Dr. Altman the next day. He diagnosed me correctly and prescribed a course of treatment that mimimalized further pain. His staff is just as caring and truly helpful.
If you are looking for a very knowledgable dermatologist, who is very caring and has a tremendous personality, you will find this in Dr. Roger Altman, located in Palm Harbor, Fl. I would recommend him to anyone in a heart beat.
I've been a patient of Dr. Altman's for many years having been through 3 previous dermatologists. He is a fine physician with a kind of quirky personality - quite outspoken. But then I appreciate the whole truth. He has a great touch in numbing & removing basal cells leaving minimal scarring. Even my 95 yr old mother has switched to him.
