One Star

Very disappointed. Did not listen to post surgery concerns or symptoms and dismissed it as other diagnosis. Another surgeon corrected the surgery a year later.

Five Stars

I am a professional pianist and saw Dr. Altman for numbness and pain in my hands. He diagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome, and did release surgery in both of my hands. He is a wonderful doctor -- brilliant, skillful, and caring. The results have been amazing. My hands have completely healed and are strong and flexible. I can recommend him very highly. A wonderful surgeon.

Master Carpenter

I found Dr Altman to be conservative in his approach to removing an annoying cyst from my finger. First he tried injections before he did surgery. The results were excellent and after 9 months I can't even find a scar. He is very well regarded by those of us who work with our hands and power tools too. Excellent.
