  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

New to area and randomly picked Dr. A. I couln't believe my luck in choosing Dr. A. He was very personable , thorough and listened to what I had to say. He made a very homesick patient feel welcome and feel at home.

I have been going to Dr. Alteri for about 6 years now and he is by far the best doctor i have been to. He is always courteous and spends all the time necessary to hear about my health concerns. He is so good i have recently started to take my mother to him and she likes him a lot. I wish all my doctor's were like him.
