I have had OB/GYN related health concerns for years and have attempted to visit Dr. Altman for a solution. She had the approach of prescribing medicine that MAY help and seeing how that went. I have never found a resolution to my health concerns through her office. Additionally, I was questioning whether or not I needed to visit the ER and spoke to the receptionist named Lisa. Lisa was rude and unfeeling; she stated that she would call back and after waiting 2 hours I called back. When I got through to her she was rude again, and instead of seeming concerned in the least, she stated that I missed an appointment 4-5 months ago (which I had not - they would have called/billed for it) and offered an appointment 3 days from today. Lisa did not care about me as a person, or my current medical need. Based on the lack of ever finding a solution through Dr. Altman, and her rude office staff (Lisa) I will be finding a new doctor that actually cares.
After 20 years as a patient I owe Dr. Altman. With great cheer and the best professional attitude, she sustained me medically through many stressful times.I sent her my disintegrating sister, my friends, she helped them all. Her forward thinking interest in difficult diagnoses is remarkable. She takes the time and shows compassion. Rare! Even priceless!
Sondra Altman, M.D. is a wonderful physician. I have gone to her for over 10 years. I had an excellent outcome following a myomectomy and had had good results following treatment of ongoing menopausal issues. I cannot recommend this physician highly enough. She has a lovely, warm bedside manner.
