Dr. Alter and her staff are very professional

I am so happy for the service that Dr. Alter and her staff provided for me. I went to her office for my yearly check up on 9/7/2010. I came prepare to spend a long time waiting before the Dr. was ready to see me. To my surprise I just waited like 15 min. I was still filling out my forms when a very nice assistant called me in. 10 min. later I was ready to see the Dr. and she was very professional all the time and told me that she will contact me in 10 days for my results. I was a little skeptical about this appointment since I had a bad experience when the previous Dr. that I went to see early this year, never ever got back to me to let me know the outcomes of my exams. This was very important for me because I had not seen an GYN Dr. in three years. I pictured myself chasing Dr. Alter for my results as it usually had happened to me. Yesterday an assistant called to let me know about my results and I am so happy to that finally I find a GYN doctor who really cares about her patients. Thanks Dr. Alter!
