Excellent Dermotologist

Upon recommendation from a friend of mine 14 yrs ago, my son was treated for what was described as a medium condition of acne. Within two visits, his acne was gone! Previously we had been to another dermotologist and he did not even improve upon our son's condition! My husband and I have both been to this practice for various issues and screenings as well; each time we were taken care of promptly, efficiently and accurately. We have only good things to say about Dr. Altman and his practice!!

Very Satisfied

Addressed my problem promptly and efficiently. Dr. Altman used liquid nitrogen to flatten down a dermatofibroma on upper arm that had been bothering me for some time. I didn't have to wait too long and was in and out of his office in just over one hour.

RACIST

I went to see Dr. Altman for a hair loss problem. When he came into the room he begin to look around my head. He never touched my hair or my head. He looked at me as if I was dirt. I'm a Africian American woman with very good insurance. I will never visit his office again and maybe that's what he wants.

Not Satisfied

I visited the office with hopes of getting a growth removed from my wrist. I was told I had 2 options. To come in for a few visits and get treatment or get the prescribed medicine and treat it myself. They asked me where I wanted the medicine to be sent to. There are 2 locations. I went to the Kensington Ave location and was told they don't make the medicine there. I called the Transit Road location and was told nothing was called in for me. Really? The message I'm getting is we really don't care about your medical issue. Just give us all your insurance information. I will not be back!
