  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines.

    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

The best

Dr.altajar is the best cardiologist. I am a nurse and you can say picky about my docs and bedside manner and He has it all. Not to mention when my mother a snowbird needed to get back on track with her medications he stepped right up. And he made sure she understood it all. I can't think him enough.

good doctor

I was referred to Dr. Altajar from my primary doctor in Arcadia after I was fed up from previous Cardiologist, and exactly like he told me, he is very nice doctor . he made me feel very easy and understood my problem after reviewing my records and he ordered the appropriate tests for me ( not like my previous Cardiologist who used to order all the tests in the book every year!)

Excellent!

I saw Dr. Altajar as a new patient and I was extremely pleased with him as a cardiologist. He was very thorough and explained everything in a manner that I understood. I didn't have to wait long to see him and he took his time and made me feel important, not rushing through my visit. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a cardiologist!!
