Dr. Altaweel has provided excellent care for me through multiple surgeries and conditions for over 10 years. He has always been very attentive to my questions and takes even the smallest symptoms seriously. He collaborates well with my other physicians, is very diligent in diagnosing conditions, and is very open, honest and caring. I would highly recommend Dr. Altaweel to anyone.

Dr. and staff need to learn people skills

Dr. Altaweel is extremely knowledgeable, but has poor people skills. He rushes through appointments, and acts like he doesn't have time for questions. When I experienced an eye problem after a one month post-surgery follow up appointment, I called the office staff for advice (since no one can talk to the doctor directly anymore). The nurse I spoke to was short with me and wouldn't even spend a couple of minutes on the phone discussing what I could do to relieve the symptoms. I am canceling the next follow up appointment, and will not see this doctor again.
