Dr altschuler is a very nice and very talent neurosurgeon.
dr. altschuler did my laminectomy on my L5, S1 over 12 years ago. Prior to this i had never even so much is had 1 stitch. dr. altschuler made me feel absolutely comfortable through out everything. I knew immediately when i woke up from surgery i was fixed. all though i had permanent nerve damage as a result of me waiting so long to have the surgery. i now must have another surgery as a result of another injury or at least i think so. dr. altschuler was with out a doubt the first person i will be calling for my back.
