He read my medical records from other doctors, and came to the expected news of needing surgery of the throat. After explaining some details about it, he offered me time to think about it. I elected to wait a while, but after a couple of months, his staff called me saying the doctor feels that I shouldn't take too long to make my choice. So I had it done that same month. The surgery was done in a hospital environment surgery center where I felt safe if any other condition arose. With 2 doctors in the operating room, the procedure went flawless. I came out feeling alright and slept that day away. On the 2nd day and thereafter, I had very little amount of discomfort! I am very happy with the outcome! He called me that next morning to see how I was doing and if I had any questions. I don't see any room for improvement.
Dr. Altman is hands down the best. I took my son to him for a second opinion to our first ENT visit with a different doctor and everything about our visit was 100 times better than we had before with the other doctor. There isn't a long wait time to see him. He has great bedside manner. He took his time to answer all my questions and explain everything to me. He was great with my 5 year old. And after following what he thought would be the solution to my son's problems, my son is now doing so much better and hasn't had any issues that we were previously dealing with before seeing Dr. Altman. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Altman, he is an amazing doctor.
Dr Altman was my 3rd ENT consult; He took the time to evaluate and treat my toddler son accordingly without him having to undergo extensive specialists appointments nor further surgery as other providers suggested. He is intuitive and compassionate to his speciality which he has dedicated many years of his life to perfect. Aside from his intellect and skills he has a "one of a kind" bedside manner and ensures both the patient (and the parent in my case) are comfortable. He is the only provider I ever met who welcomed my 2 year old on his lap during the visit! And he is the only provider who was willing to take on a complex case as the one I had and ended up making it simple. We are forever grateful to be under the care of Dr Altman for our ENT needs. Strongly recommended. My son has been ear infection free and has passed his hearing test since we established care with him. Thank you for your care of my son! Forever greatful.
Dr. Altman has been our ENT for over 10 years. He is a super, caring physician. If there is anything that we have ever needed he has been right there. Would not see anyone else.
