    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.

Brilliant physician

I took my daughter to the Mayo Clinic for lesions all over her body. After thousands of dollars spent, they had no diagnosis or treatment plan to help. Dr Altman diagnosed her within 2 days. And she responded well to treatment. I am grateful for the help he gave my oldest child when the "experts" failed her. Teresa Fonferko

excellent doctor

Dr. Altman is an excellent doctor, and he has really helped our autistic 16 year old son. Cody is much more attentive to everyone, especially his parents, and he has grown about 4 inches on the vitamins provided by Dr. Altman.Overall, Dr. Altman provided us with a wonderful experience.

Figured out what no other Dr. In 10 yrs could!

Dr. Altman is very caring, incredibly intelligent and an excellent diagnostician. I am not able to take conventional meds bc of liver disease and after 10 years of illness my entire system was compromised. He was able to diagnose and treat me with integrative medicine and used his extensive knowledge of natural supplements to treat me and get my body back on track. I would still be very sick if it weren't for him. If you cannot figure out what is wrong with you, absolutely go and see him. He is expensive, but you can submit the bills ro insurance and he WILL figure it out and heal you. Truly a blessing that I found him.
