Specialties

Dr. Howard B Altman has the following 3 specialties

  • Anatomic Pathology & Clinical Pathology
  • Dermatopathology

    A dermatopathologist is an expert in both dermatology and pathology. They specialize in diseases related to the skin, but where a dermatologist would examine a potentially-cancerous mole by looking at it, a dermatopathologist would examine your skin cells in a lab, more like a pathologist.
    Beyond just skin cancer, dermatopathologists also study a wide range of skin conditions, including everything from warts, moles, spider veins and herpes, to dermatitis, rashes, vitiligo and other conditions related to skin discoloration.

  • Pathology

    A pathologist is a physician who specializes in the causes and paths taken by different diseases in order to accurately diagnose an illness.
    Pathologists diagnose and determine the characteristics of a disease through the study of biopsies of diseased tissue or of bodily fluids. For example, a pathologist will look at a biopsy of a skin lesion in order to diagnose or rule out skin cancer. A pathologist will also look at a Pap smear in order to check for a gynecological cancer like cancer of the uterus.
    In addition to determining the cause and development of a disease, these specialists also study the changes a disease makes to a body and the consequences of those structural changes.

Lousy initial appointment

This doctor saw my husband who had a complication from a recent catherization in surgery which left him unable to void altogether. Dr. Altman spent one minute with my husband, cutting off what little input my husband said. I was told the doctor was in a rush to get to a meeting - it would have been better to reschedule the appointment altogether and treat my husband with care, not part of a mill money-making process (there were too many patients in the lobby and in the back where they were being scene). Yukkk, this was not quality care. He blew off the questions my husband had - this was a horrible example of medical practice.
