I have never met a nicer, caring Doctor like Dr. Altman. He sits down and talks to you, answers all your questions as if your the only person there, wait time is a little long, but well worth it...

The worst Dr. I have ever experienced.

This mans time is very important to him. Obviously more important than my time. 2 appt. have been cancelled by the office. I was asked to come in early. Since I was is so much pain I left work early & drove 1 1/2hrs on to get called 10 min. before that they are cancelling again. I've never been so angry at a Dr. in my life. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy. I can only imagine how he treats his clients.

I came to him with a non-union of the tibia(didn't heal) after a bad experience with my original doctor. We decided to have him do a new pinning of the bone. I was up and walking after 2 weeks without a walker or cane. I'm very pleased with his work and my interactions with him and his office, This was 1.5 years after the original injury and very poor care from the original doctor, What a difference! Note: There were times I had to wait past my appoint. time to see him, but often I could see that people with emergencies were being worked in. Well worth a bit of a wait.
